Then why has McCain been forced into rejecting and denouncing both Hagee and that other whack job, Parsley? I know you want Hagee et al to be a non-issue that doesn't compare to Wright. But, as Karl Rove and George Bush taught us in 2004, American's don't do "nuance" very well.
Haven't heard much about it.
You're joking, right?
He does, but since the media is in the tank for him, it will be presented as "racists won't vote for Obama!"
Again, you're joking, right? Obama may have successfully turned the media against Clinton, but to suggest that McCain hasn't enjoyed a cozy and coddled relationship with the media is both absurd and laughable in the grandest way. Barbecue anyone?
That went away about a year ago.
So did Reverend Wright. But he came back again when it was politically expedient, didn't he?
That was never a problem until Pastor Wright came up.
I would think that black's would coalesce around Obama more because
of the attacks against black churches (which is what the Rev. Wright scandal is truly about ... black churches are scary
and you can't trust anyone who would actually choose to attend one).
"IF OBAMA WINS WHAT WILL WHITE'S LOSE?"
Now you're getting nutty.
Maybe. We are arguing politics after all.
Let me know when you see that happen.
Well, I did see a YouTube video of a news piece done on Apalachian voters. In that news piece they interviewed several non-educated white folks who said, on camera, (I'm paraphrasing) "We enslaved those people and kept them down for a long time. What happens to us if they get the upper hand?"
Whatever. Who started this campaign?
Does it matter? Come on.
Hmm...or maybe Obama will actually have to defend himself on the issues. Maybe the GOP will clobber him on his inexperience, his ridiculous Iran/NK/Cuba positions, his tax and spend liberalism, his crazy associations with known terrorists and racists? Nah...it will all just be bullshit. Now McCain...he's too old, of course.
I didn't realize discussions with your perceived enemies was "ridiculous". What they hell are you and McCain so fucking afraid of? I've seen such a bunch of nervous nellies in my life, but jesus, "Oh my god. Oh my god. He's gonna talk to Iran! We won't get our war!!! Then what will we do? The military industrial complex will implode!!!"
Doesn't matter. McCain's running on his "maverick" status. If he didn't think his entire brain trust being populated with lobbyist was a perception problem, he wouldn't have fired them all.
One more thing:
Careful now. It was just a couple days ago that the NRCC and Boehner said that Republican re-branding must make them look like the change agent.
If "change" was something to ridicule and mock, then why the hell is John McW so mad that Obama has stolen the maverick/change mantle? Hmmm?
It was probably fun to type though. Did it give you a chuckle?
Enjoy Memorial Day!
