I have never called Hillary Clinton a racist and do not believe she or Bill are racists.
I just objected to her decision to join forces with the Hannitys of the world and start in on Reverend Wright.
The media has chopped off the quotes from Wright on two occasions..the gd america and the hiroshima comment...when full context is given,ie. not cutting off the gd america ''if america govt continues imperialism around the world ''part of the quote it takes on a liberal,progressive position.
And the hiroshima quote was actually wright quoting former reagan official who said all those things related to foreign policy of the american govt and the blowback being 9/11.
Now, we all know the press does this all the time but it seems to me that democrats should not encourage it by using it politically.
Does anyone really think Wright deserves to be endangered?
I think it is worthy of debate,no doubt. That would be single payer, I presume?
I am in favor of it..but neither candidate has come that far..only Dennis Kucinich.
I am afraid it would be a general election candidate killer but would like to see it phased in over time with the necessary education of the american voter on the exact impact on their lives. But in a perfect world,I agree.
could have doused the hysteria by not commenting or defending the ex-marine,Martin Luther King marcher,and counselor to her husband in his time of need in 98 but she chose to add fuel to the mob mentality out there and add to the risk that this old man is now being threatened with bodily harm.
Wright is not perfect but he does not deserve this type of treatment by Hillary or the mob.
The Op-Ed in yesterdays Chicago Trib written by a 25 year member of the church , a white man, whose impending nuptuials with a black member of the church back in 1983 were abrubtly cancelled by the young lady who feared the interracial blowback for the couple. Wright found out...called the young lady and spent 4 hours counseling her to look beyond race and know that Jesus would not embrace a race based decision. She saw the light and the happy couple have been proud members of TRinity ever since. He says he has sat in the church for 25 years and has heard Wright take on both races,challenging them to work together for jesus and themselves. He says the work of the church has helped tens of thousands of poor folks on the south side of chicago far more than any govt programs. It is a good read.
We will see how the latest gaffe by the Clinton Campaign effects the Penn numbers later this week. Those gun-toting blue collar dems she is counting on may not embrace her embellishment about being under fire from snipers while the truth is she was not when we have the 4000th casualty in Iraq and violence is spiking in the war she authorized.
Pa. is a military-centric state and they recognize a military disaster assisted by HRC and do not approve of fish tales about combat.
thanks to travis stark for his support for my son and others in Bagdad.
Lets remember that when the Vets groups rated the senate for supporting the vets that virtually every dem rated ahead of every GOP senator...think about it.. the party that spouts all the patriotic screeds about supporting the troops and loving their vets are undercutting the vets when it is time to take care of them.
Vote for the democratic nominee in november if you actually love our troops and support our vets.
