You know, the saddest thing about all of this is the absolutely blatant fawning that the conservative sect does over any minority that espouses their
principles. There is nothing that this man is saying that hasn't been said thousands of times of over by thousands of other conservatives (in the
public forum). Nothing. In this instance, a speech was given, in a public forum, by a smart, self-made black man that challenged the president. Again,
this has happened many, many times over by many others. The only difference, at all, is that he is black. That's it. Please tell me the part of the
speech where he gave the conservatives a new idea. The exact same ideas have been previously given with the same candor, or with harsher words, or
even in a softer approach…
There seems to be a constant (and this being self admitted on their part) misconception among the conservatives that it's not the message… if we
could only package it differently. Whether it be through Palin, Cain, Rubio, Bachman, or maybe we need to be try a big bully, perhaps Christie… eh,
perhaps not, he ended up doing something we didn't like. The problem is the message, not the packaging.
And before you get all hot and bothered about Ben Carson, you may want to research a little more. He may not be quite as conservative as you would
think (or want?). He's for banning semi-automatic weapons, was against the wars, appears to be for affirmative action of some sort (in his recent
interview with Greta Van Susteren), he, oddly enough, called for considerably more regulation in the health insurance industry, and really seems
overall like a bit of a compassionate conservative. My guess is that he'll say something soon that the far right won't like, and all of these
insanely predictable fawning conservatives will move on to the next minority who can maybe, just maybe, repackage, and sell that same old message that
fewer and fewer americans are buying. Stand by for the moving on.
