Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House if the election is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks — many calling them "lazy," "violent," responsible for their own troubles.That's right folks. You're racist if you don't vote for Sen. Obama in November. It doesn't matter if you're Democrat or Republican. The simple failure to vote can and will be traced to the fact that you are a racist.
The poll, conducted with Stanford University, suggests that the percentage of voters who may turn away from Obama because of his race could easily be larger than the final difference between the candidates in 2004 — about two and one-half percentage points.
This is absolutely insulting to anyone's intelligence. Nearly half of Democrats didn't vote for Obama in the primaries, and at every step of the way, Obama's people claimed that you were racist if you didn't vote for him over Sen. Hillary Clinton.
Now, we're seeing Obama's people making the same claims against Sen. John McCain.
Obama is inexperienced.
Obama is surrounded by racists (Rev. Jeremiah Wright), former terrorists (Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn), criminals (Tony Rezko) and folks who are neck deep in the fiscal crisis that now requires a massive government bailout on a scale heretofore never seen (Jim Johnson whose tenure at Fannie Mae helped cause the crisis in the first place, and who serves not only as an adviser to Obama, but was on his VP search committee until he was thrown under the bus).
Obama's policies are nothing more than massive tax and spend programs that encourage the massive redistribution of wealth and does not allow for the creation of new jobs and income. It encourages massive growth in government programs, and will stifle innovation.
Obama's foreign policies are just as bad, as he's more willing to talk with terrorists and their state sponsors than he is to send representatives to attend pro-Israel/anti-Iran rallies. He flailed around on a response to Russia's unprovoked invasion of Russia, and it took him three days to come around to Sen. John McCain's position.
Obama's position on military matters and national security are horrible, and he opposed the surge in Iraq and refused to acknowledge the success of that strategy for months on end. In fact, he introduced a measure in the Senate to remove troops by March of 2008. Had anyone bothered to listen to Obama, Iraq would be a disaster right now.
It isn't, because no one outside the leftists who form his core support listened to him.
So, even in light of the overwhelming reasons to not vote for Obama, you will be called racist for not doing so. Nice. So be it. That's all the more reason not to vote for Obama - because he and his flacks are engaging in baseless accusations with no merit and have a willing and compliant media and academic institutions doing the smears for him.
