The double standards of the left

“When my friend told me his wife was Black, I felt my spirit wince.”

Wow, that is pretty racist huh?

“When my friend told me his wife was Caucasian, I felt my spirit wince.”

That is a quote from a recent White House artist invited by the Obama's.

So while the first quote is racist, the second quote is an "artful discussion of race".

Yeah, right.

Spare us the silly association games Bart. Are the Republicans really going to try this again in the 2012 election cycle by trotting out Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Malik Shabaz, etc... That worked real well in 2008 didn't it. Republicans need to show the American public ideas to boost the economy not this nonsense.

Ideas?
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , May 12, 2011

What idea does Obama have? Screw the rich? How will fuicking business owners out of their money create a job?

The President and First lady represent our nation. The fact that they invited a rapper that glorifies cop killers and a lady that thinks interracial marriage is an issue is interesting to say the least.

Obama ran as a blank slate in 2008. The people now want to know what type of guy is OK with $4 gas, 9% unemployment and an administration that continues to kill jobs.

Have you read and/or listened to all of Commons work Bart before coming to this conclusion? I'll admit I have not but, from what I hear, the majority of his work has a positive message. I understand there is a desperation for anything to bring the President down in some way right now and, believe me, it shows. Am I to understand from this "association" that the President and First Lady condone cop killing or are against interracial marriage? Not that I think it's a big deal and I'm a Johnny Cash fan but President Bush presented a Presidential award to a man whose lyrics support shooting a man in Reno just to watch him die and taking a shot of cocaine and shooting my woman down. Do I find this an "interesting to say the least" about what this says about George Bush? Not at all. A boy named Sue?? Maybe... Does this sound ridiculous? That's because it is Bart.

What idea does Obama have to promote job growth? Let me name a few: small business loans and tax incentives with an emphasis on domestic manufacturing, developing wireless technology with coverage throughout the US, domestic goods export targets of 2X in 5 years, the Recovery Act, the Affordable Care Act which will promote lobs in the health care industry and clean energy technology to name a few. I do believe that republicans also have ideas but where are they? Could it be they might want to wait awhile to make sure not too many jobs are created and that things do not improve too much before 2012? They couldn't be that callous and power hungry to put party before people could they??

But, Woody, on this topic, don't you think things are lopsided? If someone who said the first quote had been invited, the left would be all riled up over it. While this may be petty, what's wrong is that it's considered so only when the second quote is made.

I see your point Chell but, personnaly, I'm tired of these association games and trying to cast disparity on politicians using other peoples statements.

The reason that I even know about this black racist is that she was highlighted by the White House. Woody implied that no one cares who Obama hangs with, which i doubt will be true in 2012.

But the real point is the defense of the liberal's statement that would get any white person vilified. The double standards for liberals and blacks is sickening. Can you image the outrage in the press if Bush had invited a white person to the White House that was sickened by inter-racial marriage?

Woody, I think we will always disagree on the association details.

Who an individual chooses to spend time with, and chooses as a mentor, can shed a lot of light on their own mindset and future ideas.

With elections, are trying to gauge the thoughts of the people running. Sometimes their controllers are so limiting, we can't determine that with a few staged debates. So we look to other indicators of how a person might think and respond.

The title of the post...

... does not make it any more substantial. If people cared who Obama hung with Bart, the constant reference to them by Conservative media surely would have made a difference in the election unless the McCain/Palin ticket was doomed from the start, which is a possibility. I'm trying to help you here in the interest of an issues-based campaign. This crap did not work in the past and it will not work this time regardless of how the Presidents associations make you feel personally. Why must you constantly refer back to the Bush Presidency? BDS?? Look forward not back.

"Look forward not back."

That's the problem, we're staring at the hope and change abyss...

I would not disagree with that statement. I hated McCain and I was very sad to see him elected. I voted for him but did nothing else, no yard sign, no money, etc.

Multiply my actions by 1 million or 5 and that is a real advantage for the first black candidate.
