Obama: A good democrat who knows how to exploit race, ethnicity, gender and class to create hyphenated-Americans
Misleading campaign commercials ...
Obama has just fielded a false and misleading sanctioned campaign commercial that attempts to link John McCain and President Bush with an anti-immigrant stance. The commercials air in Spanish targeted at people who may not access mainstream media, let along talk radio, to judge for themselves the falsity of the ad.
Obama’s people took two statements by conservative icon Rush Limbaugh out of context – from two separate parodies – and juxtaposed them in a serious commercial.
Race baiting ...
This is race baiting at its very worst – and only goes to prove that Obama is not, nor has ever been, a post-partisan politician who brings a message of hope and change to the American public. Instead, he is revealed as a rather vapid, old-style pol from the backrooms of Chicago’s corrupt political machine. A traditional democrat who exploits race, ethnicity, gender, and class for his own political purposes.
Unfortunately in this instance, Obama appears to be playing the race/ethnicity card to attract illegal alien non-voters and those who support citizenship for illegal aliens to his campaign. No wonder the democrats fought so hard for motor-voter rules which allows people to apply for a license and voter registration at the same time – and then went on to fight for the issuance of driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. To the democrats, this sounds like a plan to curry favor with future voters in a steadily increasing demographic.
Of course, we can can view for ourselves what havoc has been visited on our healthcare, educational, law enforcement, retirement, social and cultural infrastructure. And now they want the American public to overlook the unintended consequences of increasing political power which allows them to simply vote us out of our own communities. And the far-left liberal democrats are not alone as they backed by the traditionally leftist trade unions who see an increasing membership bring them even more money and power to pursue their agenda to make labor an equal partner with those who have risked everything to develop their own small businesses. Their blind ambition for political power has made them overlook the obvious fact that the welfare of their present membership is being severely degraded by the illegals who work for less and who are still welcomed into the union roles. Perhaps to organize for the unions after they become a significant portion of the workforce at any company.
A demonstration of falsity …
From an editorial from Rush Limbaugh which appeared in the Wall Street Journal …
“Here's the relevant part of the Spanish-language television commercial Mr. Obama is running in Hispanic communities:
‘They want us to forget the insults we've put up with . . . the intolerance . . . they made us feel marginalized in this country we love so much.’
“Then the commercial flashes two quotes from me: ‘. . . stupid and unskilled Mexicans’ and ‘You shut your mouth or you get out!’"
“And then a voice says, ‘John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote . . . and another, even worse, that continues the policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families. John McCain . . . more of the same old Republican tricks.’"
Obama knows that this is a false and misleading campaign commercial …
“And more to the point, these sound bites are a deception, and Mr. Obama knows it. The first sound bite was extracted from a 1993 humorous monologue poking fun at the arguments against the North American Free Trade Agreement. Here's the context:
‘If you are unskilled and uneducated, your job is going south. Skilled workers, educated people are going to do fine 'cause those are the kinds of jobs Nafta is going to create. If we are going to start rewarding no skills and stupid people, I'm serious, let the unskilled jobs that take absolutely no knowledge whatsoever to do -- let stupid and unskilled Mexicans do that work.’"
“My point, which is obvious, was that the people who were criticizing Nafta were demeaning workers, particularly low-skilled workers. I was criticizing the mind-set of the protectionists who opposed the treaty. There was no racial connotation to it and no one thought there was at the time. I was demeaning the arguments of the opponents.”
“As for the second sound bite, I was mocking the Mexican government's double standard -- i.e., urging open borders in this country while imposing draconian immigration requirements within its own borders. Thus, I took the restrictions Mexico imposes on immigrants and appropriated them as my own suggestions for a new immigration law.”
“Here's the context for that sound bite: ‘And another thing: You don't have the right to protest. You're allowed no demonstrations, no foreign flag waving, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. You're a foreigner: shut your mouth or get out! And if you come here illegally, you're going to jail.’"
“At the time, I made abundantly clear that this was a parody on the Mexican government's hypocrisy and nobody took it otherwise.”
Obama is responsible for this commercial as he had to personally approve it before it aired …
“The malignant aspect of this is that Mr. Obama and his advisers know exactly what they are doing. They had to listen to both monologues or read the transcripts. They then had to pick the particular excerpts they used in order to create a commercial of distortions. Their hoped-for result is to inflame racial tensions. In doing this, Mr. Obama and his advisers have demonstrated a pernicious contempt for American society.”
Why Obama does not deserve to be the President of the United States …
“We've made much racial progress in this country. Any candidate who employs the tactics of the old segregationists is unworthy of the presidency.”
What part of United in the United States does Obama and his far-left democrat supporters not understand? Is the public so blind, deaf and apathetic to miss the fact that while Obama claims he is a united, him and his party are doing everything in their power to produce hyphenated-Americans which can be molded into an election-winning coalition?
Limbaugh fought McCain tooth and nail over immigration …
And what makes it doubly ludicrous is that Rush Limbaugh railed each day against John McCain over his support of the McCain-Kennedy Immigration reform bill which would have conferred amnesty on people who demonstrated their lack of respect for American law – and who literally demonstrated in the streets of Los Angeles and elsewhere demanding to be recognized as legal citizens. Believing that they somehow deserved citizenship because parts of California once belonged to Mexico. Notice they also ignore the pre-existing claims of Native Americans.
In my opinion, this is like a thief breaking into your house and then petitions the courts to insure that your bed needs to be softer to meet the needs of his sore back.
Rewarding smoke and mirrors …
Barack Obama doesn’t exist. He is a creation of his handler’s Hollywood-style smoke and mirrors. He is like any good actor: telegenic and able to sincerely mouth the words written by others. And like most performers, he needs a TelePrompTer to keep him sounding like a real candidate. Deprived of this artificial memory aid, he stammers and stutters as he tries to use his vocal prowess to spout the far-left’s ugly party line. He is a creature of coincidence: being at the right place at the right time when Hillary imploded with high negatives and John Edwards split the vote to make a clear victory almost impossible.
What can YOU do?
Vote your own interests. Ignore both political parties as they view citizens as being necessary to electing them to power so they can pursue their own power, prestige and profits.
Notice the rise in third-party polls and media statements which claim that Americans are racially biased and those who claim that if we don't vote for Obama we will be displaying our prejudice. Nothing could be further from the truth. Obama is a deeply-flawed candidate who has little or no experience and a host of negatives which make him unsuitable as the President of the United States. It's not racist to want to protect your country and eliminate much of the special interest corruption that drives Congress.
Watch Obama carefully and you will see the chinks in his armor. He is beginning to implode and nothing can stop the process except your vote. Proof: imagine standing at the center of the stage – with the whole world watching – and instead of putting forth his plan to rescue America’s damaged economy, he waffles and claims he will release his plan at some unspecified time in the future.
Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for their personal philosophy, power, prestige or profits.

Obama Is Stoking Racial Antagonism
I understand the rough and tumble of politics. But Barack Obama -- the supposedly postpartisan, postracial candidate of hope and change -- has gone where few modern candidates have gone before.
Mr. Obama's campaign is now trafficking in prejudice of its own making. And in doing so, it is playing with political dynamite. What kind of potential president would let his campaign knowingly extract two incomplete, out-of-context lines from two radio parodies and build a framework of hate around them in order to exploit racial tensions? The segregationists of the 1950s and 1960s were famous for such vile fear-mongering.
Much of the media that is uninterested in Mr. Obama's connections to unrepentant 1970s Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright have so far gone along with the attempt to tie me to Mr. McCain. But Mr. McCain and I have not agreed on how to address illegal immigration. While I am heartened by his willingness to start by securing the borders, it is no secret that we have fundamental differences on illegal immigration.
