To supporters of Barack Obama or Hillary supporters who would vote for Obama if he becomes the nominee:
Can you look into the mirror and say you support a candidate who associates, not casually, with:
1) The unrepentant, former terrorist, William Ayres. He blew up buildings as a member of the radical Weathermen.
2) The unrepentant, angry-at-whites/America-had-it-coming, Reverend Jeremiah Wright. You’re not buying Obama’s little jig that he ‘wasn’t there’ or ‘didn’t know’ what the good Reverend said now are you? This same church honored Louis Farrakhan in 2007 as a man who “truly epitomized greatness”.
A president shouldn’t be a member of a church like this.
3) The indicted Tony Rezko, who clearly tried to buy influence with the willing candidate.
A president doesn’t buy his home with the monetary help of a well-known, shady ‘fixer’.
Are you really comfortable with Michelle Obama not being proud of America as an adult? She felt no pride as an American when she heard how Todd Beamer said “Let’s Roll” when trying to overcome the terrorists on the plane that went down in Shankesville, Pennsylvania?
No pride, when the Berlin Wall came down, freeing hundreds of millions of people, because of Ronald Reagan’s tough policies towards Socialism? Is “no pride in America” what you want in a First Lady?
Can you overlook the “post-racial” Obama’s revealing “typical white people” slip? Imagine if John McCain had said “typical black person” in an interview: The race would’ve been over.
Can you overlook the candidate’s personal trashing of his living grandmother, as a way to deflect attention from his association with Reverend Wright? If he would throw overboard the woman who sacrificed all to raise him and give him a good life, why should we think he’d be loyal to America? He can’t even bring himself to wear a small pin with an American flag on it!
Can you overlook the clearly elitist sentiments that small town America is a bunch of gun and G-d-loving nuts? Oops, scratch that: most on the left already do think that.
The powers of denial on the left are notoriously strong and the aforementioned will probably not be enough to make Democrats quit Obama…yet.
Still, it’s staggering that liberals can look at themselves everyday and say they are backing a candidate with such disturbing associations.
