Off To Pennsylvania 2 & 3

May 8, 2008

 

 

Hello Barack Obama Fans.

 

Tuesday night was a very decisive evening in the world of politics; especially where Barack Obama was concerned.

 

Once again, Obama had a better showing then his critics could have ever imagined.

 

And I don’t know if you noticed or not, but Hillary was still lying about how great she did and how she is “On To The White House”, in spite of the fact that she lost North Carolina by 14 points, and won Indiana by a mere 2 points, and the fact that the time clock has all but expired; not quite the “Game Changing” night that she fantasized about before the voting began.

 

After viewing Hillary’s performance last night, and taking into consideration my memories of her other performances during these primaries and at other times, I have come to the non-professional conclusion that she is indeed a compulsive liar who cannot help herself.

 

I truly believe that she is sick, and not the best choice to run the country.

 

Why?

 

If elected, when things are going good, she will lie to make them sound better, or worse, depending on which choice serves her better.

 

And if things are going bad, she will lie to make them look good, so that she will not look bad in the eyes of the American people.

 

But now that I think about it; maybe she is not sick, because if she is sick, then that means that we have had some very sick politicians running our municipal, state, and federal governments for hundreds if not thousands of years.

 

Maybe she is just your regular run of the mill professional politician.

 

You know, the kind of politician that Barack Obama promises to not be.

 

Now let me just say that Obama, Hillary, and all politicians and other government officials have to lie outwardly or by omission some times, because the American public can not be privy to some of the many secretive functions of government that go on behind closed doors 24/7. And in fact, if the general public knew half of what goes on behind those closed doors 24/7, they would probably be terrified.

 

However, the reason that I am supporting Obama is because of his promise to change the way that things are done in Washington, DC, and I hope that he will.

 

I really think that he will make good on all of his promises to make the government more assessable and accountable to the people, and to bring all kinds of people together to make our country better, and to do it as honestly as possible.

 

With all of that said, I just wanted to brace all of the Barack Obama supporters for the coming losses in West Virginia, (Pennsylvania 2) and Kentucky, (Pennsylvania 3).

 

Some Obama supporters were so shocked by the anticipated loss in Pennsylvania, that there was a lot of talk about making contingency plans for If Obama were to continue losing, which he did not, and will not do. 

 

So please be advised that the same demographic applies to people who will vote for Hillary Clinton in West Virginia, and in Kentucky, as they did in Pennsylvania.

 

So please do not loose faith in Obama’s camp, or doubt the effectiveness and genuine nature of his message, and his objectives for the country as a whole, not just for black people, but for all people.

 

The voters who will vote for Hillary in West Virginia and Kentucky will not care about the qualifications of the candidate, or his skills or intentions, only that he is black instead of white.

 

Of course this is not a legitimate reason for voting for any candidate.

 

Some of the conservative commentators may say that this is what the black race is doing. However, this is not the case.

 

 

Yes it is a matter of ethnic pride, and of making history. And, it is also a matter of doing something to help heal the psyche of black Americans, who have been told for hundreds of years, either directly or indirectly, that there is not one black person among you, who can qualify for the most important job in the world: President of the United States of America.

 

So most black people are not just voting for Obama because he is black. Most of us are voting for him because we finally have a viable, qualified, black candidate with mass appeal, whom we think can be effective at making this country a better place for all Americans.

 

And we as Americans are not apologizing for this.

 

However, like most of the voters in Pennsylvania that fit the” blue collar” worker profile, these voters will simply be voting for a white face, rather it is the face of a qualified candidate or not.

 

So unless these folks are changed through divine intervention, then you can count these states as a lost for Obama.

 

Now that we know this, we can now focus on how we can contribute to the cause by supporting the campaign in states where we know he can win.

 

Before I leave, I would just like to share one more observation with you:

 

I do not ever remember seeing so many hardcore white republicans, (people like Newt Gingrich), cheering for a democrat, the way that they have been cheering for Hillary Clinton. And I think that some of the more innocent naïve media people are misreading the reason for this. I have heard it said that this phenomenon is occurring because the republicans think that it will be easier to beat Hillary Clinton in November. However, I believe that it is occurring because the conservatives are trying to live up to their titles, and are trying to keep the Whitehouse white.

 

I have been a black person in America too long to be naïve when it comes to race.

 

Once again I say to you, let’s get Obama into the Whitehouse-Not because he is black, but because he is the best out of very limited choices.

 

Here are the remaining primary elections schedules:

May 13: Nebraska, West Virginia

May 20: Kentucky, Oregon
