After watching the news and looking here on the web and reading the statements by Sen.Obama's former pastor, I have serious doubts about Sen.Obama's judgment.

Am I the only person on this blog that is outraged by that statement?

A man that desires to be President of these United States, and his pastor preaches from the pulpit, God damn America.
Sen. Obama knew this was coming but did nothing to deny it or refute it. When questions arose about Rev. Wright, Obama tried to pass it off as “just a member of the family that you don't always agree with." "Like an old uncle"

Well if my old uncle stood up at a family gathering and said “God DAMN America"
He would have a bloody nose before I threw his ass in the street.

If my pastor made such a statement in my church, I am sure that I would not be the first to the pulpit, to take him by the nap of the neck and the ass of his pants and throw him out front door.

And Rev. Wright's comments about Sen. Clinton, that she didn't know what it was about, that she hadn't been called a nigger. I admit that is true, but she has been called a bitch and a cunt and I really don't see much difference in the choice of language.

And then what about Mrs. Obama's comment about " this is the first time in my life I am proud of America" That has been spun and spun and spun by the Obama campaign. If she didn't mean it, why did she say it? And we are dealing with very smart people; both Sen. Obama and his wife are quite smart so what is the purpose of these comments, as they are not just misspeak.

And please stop comparing Sen. Obama to JFK.
When Sen. Obama has swam 5 miles from a burning PT boat to an island, while dragging a burned and broken comrade to shore, then you can compare him to JFK. JFK could give a beautiful speech, but he had steel in his spine. Beside John F. Kennedy, Sen.Obama is spineless for no man that aspires to be President of the United States would stand by and do nothing but make excuses while his pastor damned this nation.
In the words of his most famous speech, John Kennedy described himself,
I may have the quote little wrong but it went something like this
“Tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace"

What has tempered and disciplined Sen. Obama?

I am sure that since I have spoken out against Sen. Obama, I will now be held up as another one of the bigots. A racist white male from the south.
Those that know me know better. Those that think so, go to that America that Rev.Wright wants God to damn.

If these are the true feelings of the people that Sen.Obama has surrounded himself with he is unfit to be President of the United States.


Speaking of Kos

Here's an excerpt from a post on the destructive politics of Hillary Clinton:

First of all, the only path to victory for Clinton is via coup by super delegate.

She knows this. That's why there's all the talk about poaching pledged delegates and spinning uncertainty around Michigan and Florida, and laying the case for super delegates to discard the popular will and stage a coup.

Yet a coup by super delegate would sunder the party in civil war.

Clinton knows this, it's her only path to victory, and she doesn't care. She is willing -- nay, eager to split the party apart in her mad pursuit of power.

If the situations were reversed, and Obama was lagging in the delegates, popular vote, states won, money raised, and every other reasonable measure, then I'd feel the same way about Obama. (I pulled the plug early on Dean in 2004.) But that's not the case.

It is Clinton, with no reasonable chance of victory, who is fomenting civil war in order to overturn the will of the Democratic electorate. As such, as far as I'm concerned, she doesn't deserve "fairness" on this site. All sexist attacks will be dealt with -- those will never be acceptable. But otherwise, Clinton has set an inevitably divisive course and must be dealt with appropriately.

To reiterate, she cannot win without overturning the will of the national Democratic electorate and fomenting civil war, and she doesn't care.

That's why she has earned my enmity and that of so many others. That's why she is bleeding super delegates. That's why she's even bleeding her own caucus delegates (remember, she lost a delegate in Iowa on Saturday). That's why Keith Olbermann finally broke his neutrality. That's why Nancy Pelosi essentially cast her lot with Obama. That's why Democrats outside of the Beltway are hoping for the unifying Obama at the top of the ticket, and not a Clinton so divisive, she is actually working to split her own party.

Meanwhile, Clinton and her shrinking band of paranoid holdouts wail and scream about all those evil people who have "turned" on Clinton and are no longer "honest power brokers" or "respectable voices" or whatnot, wearing blinders to reality, talking about silly little "strikes" when in reality, Clinton is planning a far more drastic, destructive and dehabilitating civil war.

Not all will be amused

I'm a southerner, and though I never toiled long in the fields, I occasionally claim to be a redneck (just 'cause I get tired of people using it as a perjorative), and I sometimes get offended and sometimes get amused by stereotypes etc . . .

That said, this comic duo's take on the to-do about Obama's preacher really did amuse me

Very funny. Thanks for that one.
