Obama’s Speech: Cynical Me and Cynical He – UPDATED

This afternoon, President Obama showed up before the White House Press Corp and talked about the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. You can read the full text, here.I agree with much the president says. Racism is -- and always has been -- "a God-damned thing". As a nation we should be under no illusions that just because we're no longer in a Jim Crow era, that we are living on the Starship Enterprise where racism is a thing of the past. Profiling is real.

Wilson Wrong, Obama did not lie!

"Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don't simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken," Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. "That's why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.Mr. Obama added, "If anything, this debate underscores … [Read more...]

I believe Obama rejects Carter's charge – UPDATED

In a post below, I noted a tweet from CBS' Mark Knoller:Rejecting Jimmy Carter analysis, WH spksmn Gibbs says Pres. Obama does not blv that criticism of him comes based on the color of his skin.I twittered back: I believe this constant cry of racism is probably disheartening and distasteful to Obama.

Hey, whatever happened to Hillary, anyway? -UPDATED

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!’”Do you think we could get Hillary to re-record that, and just change the words "not patriotic" to "a racist"?Meanwhile, here is Rep.

Althouse, Dowd & the Toxic Card of Racism – UPDATED

The Pinnacle: slim, sharp & lonely

Catching up on all the stories since I have been away and I must have missed this one when it broke - the header: Democrat: Republicans hate ObamaCare because they’re racists.

Obama, Psychic duality & Race

Where charity and love are, there God is. The love of Christ has gathered us into one flock. Let us exult, and in Him be joyful. Let us fear and let us love the living God.

Jeremiah Wright, Steinem & Primacy of Victimhood

Okay, got lots of emails from folks decrying the "racism of Barack Obama's pastor," Jeremiah Wright, in this video.I watched the video twice, and I don't know if I'm seeing racism.
