Back in 2008, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) encouragement of Obama was unequivocal. He was wowed by Obama's oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama -- a "light-skinned" African American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one," as he said privately. Reid was convinced, in fact, that Obama's race would help him more than hurt him in a bid for the Democratic nomination.
Or maybe that's just cynical.
Where has Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton been all these years!?!?
Was this like an open secret or something?
Since when is electing a person with no managerial experience or business experience 'common sense'. BHO was elected because of the color of his skin, not the content of his character, which is why the leftists want as few inquiries into his past as possible.
Going to Harvard University, where affirmative action played a major role in Obama's admittance and his selection to HLR, does not immediately qualify anyone to be President. His color was the deciding factor in the elections, not competence, and it was affirmative action on an international scale.
Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.
