I find it very rich that Obama is actually encouraged away from bringing up his OBVIOUS ethnicity. Maybe the McCain camp would be happier if Obama
were to paint himself white (just for the campaign), or maybe just appear on the radio? Then race would likely not be an issue at all!
Obama's black. It doesn't have to be a big deal. I don't see why it is such a big deal. McCain is an idiot for trying to capitalize on a stupid
misspeak (scripted, mind you). It was even dumber for Obama's crew not to realize that Obama was implying that McCain and Bush have brought race into
this when they haven't. McCain sure hasn't called out the conservative right wingers who used Obama's middle name EXCESSIVELY, and targeted the
controversial Wright moreso because it made Obama look more black.
Yeah, those people weren't McCain's camp, that's true. But they were conservatives who i'm guessing weren't voting Obama. Just like these Obama
idiots who talk down about McCains age. I understand that he's an old guy, but pointing it out just brings negative attention to Obama.
I know for a fact that guys like Hannity, OReilly and Rush have all insinuated things relating to Obama's race and religious background. I've
listened to those shows long enough to understand their deeper meanings. For example, Hannity likes to say he doesn't even LIKE McCain on most of the
issues, but there are some issues that he strongly agrees with and in this perilous time we just can't hand the presidency over to the far left wing
radical. Hannity knows good and well that kind of position makes it look like the right choice to a traditional "just tell me what to think"
The marketing of the presidency has got to stop on both sides, but it's going to get much worse instead
