<<< SEE LIVE POLL NUMBERS!
This week was filled with more cat-fighting amongst the Democrats and the pattern of race cards to come is starting to build.
This may be the only down side to a possible black President, which is the leeches that try to surround him and promote their own race baiting agenda.
All political views and differences with myself aside Obama is a man of good character and a fine candidate. He is not in line with my views, but he is clearly a worthy candidate with a positive message.
I believe in common sense politics and that means that I don’t care what group a man belongs to or what minority group tries to claim him, he is to be judged on his merits and issues.
The real issue of racism may well be the endless barrage of false accusations from those who pimp racism to make a living like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. I personal believe the trying to seperate your agenda based on race makes it a negative agenda for unity.
All this said and aside, Geraldine Ferraro’s comments were completely reasonable, said in good taste and for the most part true.
I think this is why the race baiters and liberal media hate the comments so much, because it is true. What is more she also said the same applies to herself.
Just read this liberal idiot who says Ferraro is “Shameful”, or this one that goes on to say we need a museum of slavery to help with her “willful ignorance”. This Liberal Susan Brooks article goes on to compare the need for a slavery museum to the Holocaust. She is then connecting all this to Geraldine Ferraro.
Liberals have no idea what color the sky really is.
Where were these people when TV interviews showed people saying they would never vote for Mitt Romney because of his religious beliefs? Why do these poeple not get outraged when Geraldine made the exact same comparison with her own history?
You notice the media doesn’t cover this part of her comments?
“in 1984 if my name was Gerard Ferraro instead of Geraldine Ferraro, I would have never been chosen as a vice presidential candidate”
Guess the MSM just likes scandal when they can fabricate one, and facts don’t get ratings.
Obama may well be the best candidate to represent his supporters views. He is well spoken, intelligent and professional. These attributes are not enough to come back from 20 points down in 4 months. The highest voter turnouts and rise in black votes are due to his color.
This is not something to look at negatively, but this is a fact. This fact alone makes the statements of Geraldine Ferrero 100% true.
So any supporter of Obama that tries to twist this into a racist statement and ignores the factual value of the statement is simply trying to exploit his race for their own gain.
Obama should be acknowledging that color and gender will always influence any voter ignorant enough to base their vote on these reasons.
If you are white and vote for a white based on color, then you are an ignorant voter.
If you are black and base you vote on color…then you again are an ignorant voter.
If you are a man or woman that votes for the same gender as yourself based solely on gender…then again you are an ignorant voter.
Why is it that blacks voting for Obama as high as 90% in some states is considered progress and when he only gets 25% of the white vote it’s considered scandal?
We recall this quote from the Charlotte Observer:
““Because he’s black — bottom line,” librarian Elisha Minter said, explaining her support for Obama. “He’s qualified.””
That is the most ignorant and racist thing on this page. This woman is proud to be basing her vote only on the color of his skin. She is no doubt a hero to her party, and she is more proof of what Geraldine Ferraro said as being true.
How many other idiots like this voted to push him over the top?
Why is the old man on TV saying “I would never vote for a mormon!”, that is ok but if the same comment was made about a candidate being black it would have been blatent hatred and racism?
Are not religion and race two divisions that have equal injustices throughout history?
Since when is basing your vote on race only OK when you non-white? I again think merit and issues are the only factors that anyone should use.
So why is it the media doesn’t find scandal in only 10% of Democratic black voters voting for the white candidate? Didn’t these people base their vote on skin color too? Why isn’t this a race issue? Or just an amazing coincidence…..
The problem is that the Democratic party has for so long been purposely dividing America into groups and creating black vs white and rich vs poor. This is an old trick that help ensure you have a large number of this exact type of ignorant voters ready to pull levers.
I vote on merit and issues and not race, gender or economic class baiting. This explains my Republican voter registration card. I am not stupid enough to let CNN or self proclaimed “activists” bait me into a “color vote for progress”.
Since when is any vote based on color known as progress?
I would wager that the great Dr. King would agree with that thought as well.
I imagine Dr. King would ask all voters to judge candidates not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. This is a concept that is NOT meant to only apply to whites in America, but to all people when judging all other people.
Ferraro even points out in the AP article that she knows she was chosen based on gender. Ferraro proves she is the only one who lives in the real world and faces what is common sense.
It’s hard to try to blame her when she is right and experienced in being exactly what she says Obama has become.
The controversy began when the national media picked up on comments Ferraro made in an interview last week with the Daily Breeze newspaper in Torrance, Calif.: “If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”
Ferraro said she stands by her assertion that Obama’s success in the Democratic campaign is due “in part” to his race.
Obama, however, said that if someone in his campaign had suggested that Hillary Clinton “is where she is only because she is a woman” she would be offended.
Clinton has said she disagrees with Ferraro’s remarks. In an interview with The Associated Press, she said, “It’s regrettable that any of our supporters — on both sides, because we both have this experience — say things that kind of veer off into the personal.”
Ferraro is the latest in a series of candidate surrogates whose comments have roiled both presidential campaigns. Last week, Obama adviser Samantha Power resigned after calling Clinton “a monster.”
Ferraro, who was Walter Mondale’s vice presidential running mate, said Wednesday that her remarks were not racist and had been taken out of context.
“I was talking about historic candidacies and what I started off by saying (was that) if you go back to 1984 and look at my historic candidacy, which I had just talked about all these things, in 1984 if my name was Gerard Ferraro instead of Geraldine Ferraro, I would have never been chosen as a vice presidential candidate,” Ferraro said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “It had nothing to do with my qualification.”
