Ready for Obama and Denver?

"And wouldn't you know it, they [the Americans] insist on looking this gift thoroughbred in the mouth. Who'd have thought it? You present them with the man who deigns to deliver them from their plight and they want to sit around and ask hard questions about who he is and what he believes and where he might actually take the country. The ingrates!" -Times Online

In some parts of America, there was been a long history of checking out the mouths of young black men who were up for sale. Why not do the same with Obama? Is this what you mean with your, as always, subtle post?

That is a very bizarre comment and absolutely uncalled for. This blog does not engage in nor approve of racism or race-baiting in any way, shape, or form.

Thank you for saying what needed to be said Publia. Dems like anon 8:28 are what is part of the problem behind racism, they think it is OK to engage when they start it, because it is alright when they do it (remember when Biden said that Obama looked "clean"?) Case and point.

You know, Lone Wolf, I seriously don't think they even see that they are part of the problem. About all we can do is to lead by example and hope more people become enlightened on this issue.

Leading by example only works if they are susceptible to "change". In this case, I think that their belief that everyone that doesn't share their view is so completely wrong, they actually start acting the same as they see others. Unfortunate, but reality.

Lone Wolf,
Your point is well taken, but I prefer to remain an optimist and believe the best about other people. While you might term me naive or living in a bubble, that is okay, as there are plenty of people who look at that differently.
