Obama's Beer Party Ploy 7.31.09

I know all of us are supposed to get into the spirit of levity and good humor, but I am afraid I can’t. This is a typical Obama; he commits an offense against the public good, he imputes racism, where there was none and then he declares a teachable moment; where he will instruct us on tolerance, understanding and brotherhood. He did this before and he does this over and over again. He found last year after 20 years he had been in a church with a raving racist, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, whose church he had worshipped in his entire adult life. And what’s Obama’s response?

He gives a speech on race, another teachable moment, in which he ascribes racism to everyone: the white working middle class, African Americans, Jeremiah Write, his own Grandmother - except himself and he stands there, hovering above it all, teaching us the ways of tolerance and brotherhood. Look, he may be a great President or a lousy one, but when he acts in this way: when he stands above the fray in a patronizing and condescending way, instructing us on the ways of the World, I find him insufferable.
