Subject: A Question About Clinton
I am an African-American who has NOT bought into
the mainstream media's ploy to cut Senator Clinton
off at her knees. The MSM has shamefully played
the race card over and over again against her, and I am
very saddened to realize that huge numbers in
the African-American community appears to have fallen for
the rotten bait. Maybe because I'm a native New
Yorker (currently residing in Texas), and I am highly aware
of the Senator's effectiveness in my beloved
home state, that I knew right away I would cast my vote for her.
I am definitely not an Obama detractor; I have
great respect for him, and I don't have to hate one in order to
prefer the other. I am simply a realist.
The Repugs are licking their chops, waiting for phase one of their
election plan to be completed (that would be
the moment that Obama wins the nomination). It seems that the
notion of republican infiltration into the democratic
primaries is dismissed as just some crazy conspiracy theory;
worst yet, many of us are not even aware of this
dynamic (or choose not to be aware). Those sewer rats say
they would rather face Clinton, but I have learned
by close observation that they say the exact opposite of
what they mean.
I truly do not understand how the voting public
could be so gullible; can't we remember how Karl Rove
manipulated the last election? I do not
base my choice on race or gender, but on common sense and the
willingness to look at a person's record objectively.
That's it, no complicated rubric involved. As for
Obama supporters, I think it's great that people
are passionate about his candidacy. It's always good
for society when we actually have viable choices
What I DON'T think is great, is the hostility
that many display to anyone who has not chosen to support him.
I experienced this backlash myself, and felt
quite hurt by it. This has no resemblance to democratic ideals.
Brains, not emotions will restore our country,
and I fear that we are in grave danger of handing the White House
to McCain in November if our emotions continue
to rule us. I deeply appreciate the concept of hope, working
together, cooperation, etc. but they will never
come to fruition if the Repugs aren't willing to behave fairly.
Do we really think these thugs are going to change
their evil ways because Obama asked them to?
Don't think so; it's worked too well for them
up 'til now.
