Serious question then, and no, this isn't an attempt at race baiting. If we're supposed to believe that this will backfire on the GOP and women
voters are too smart to vote for McCain just because he's picked a woman veep, then what does that say about the almost unanimous loyalty the media
touts of the black community towards Obama?
I've watched countless black voters interviwed and, almost without fail, I have yet to see a single one of the accurately describe a position or
platform Obama has that is the reason for their support. They all throw out buzz words like "change", "dynamic", "energing", "invigorating"
it makes Obama sound like a hell of an energy drink, but sure doesn't lay out any indication he'd actually make a decent president. Then there's
the group that will bring up something like "bringing the troops home" when we all know Obama's position on that has changed, or they talk about
Bush's attack on freedoms when we all know Obama supported the FISA bill which was supposedly a gross attack on our freedoms until the Dems supported
it and then it was quietly swept under the rug by the Olbermans of the world lest their favorite politicos become exposed as frauds. The one constant
to these interviews is the underlying reason why Obama has such support among blacks, they come really close to saying it outright but only rarely do
these interviewed black voters actually say the words: "I'm supporting him because he's black, like me."
If we're gonna stand around and say "Women voters are too smart to simply vote for someone because she's a woman. The woman candidate MUST have a
solid platform to stand on." then are we to assume that black voters aren't "too smart" to vote for a black candidate without a consistant
platform? I'll remind you "change" is not a platform until you actually lay out what that change is and how we'll achieve it, which is something
Obama has NOT done.
