With Friends Like These Who Needs Republicans.
This guy, he was catapulted in on hope and change, what we hope the guy is. What the fuck? Everything he’s saying’s on the teleprompter. I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up.”
~ Former Governor Rod Blagojavich
‘A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.’
~ Former President Bill Clinton
One of the reasons I left the Democratic Party was the presence of “Soft Bigotry.” You saw it when Obama was running for President in 2008. White Democrats loved Obama when he spoke at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Four years later he was labeled sexist/unqualified/foreign/ (the list goes on and on). Hilary Clinton helped to fan the flames of bigotry in order to win the presidency. Even after White Democrats acted like they didn’t know Black folks were part of the party, Blacks still stuck with the Democrats. I guess in order to vote for Obama you had to dance with the devil.
Obama endorsed Blagojavich for Governor of Illinois. And this is how he gets repaid. Blago gets in trouble with the law and all of a sudden he is Avon Barksdale. Give me a break!!! There is truly only one way to find out if he is Black. Ask his wife what’s going on in the bedroom.
Clinton was unceremoniously labeled the “First Black President” and he rode that all the way to the White House. But here he is again making some off-hand remark involving Obama. Clinton showed his natural tail in South Carolina along with lacky Bob “Pimping Ain’t Easy” Johnson. Clinton has proven that he is just another peckerwood that was smart enough to get an Ivy League education.
A fellow blogger that I respect and admire mentioned that Black folks are too sensitive. Sensitive and Paranoid yes!! But that is another conversation for another time. Both Clinton’s proved during the 2008 Presidential Campaign that they weren’t above using race to win. Black folks calling foul on Republicans and turning a blind eye to Democrats is counter-productive. Blacks can’t get so accustomed to blaming Republicans that they don’t hold Democrats accountable as well. I’m not jumping on the Michael Steel band wagon to fire Senator Harry Reid. But when it’s dirty – it’s dirty. I believe in calling foul on both sides and not playing favorites. What about you?
