Oprah & Obama

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Annie (United States), Mar 10, 2008 at 23:27

Oprah needs to keep her nose out of politics. She is pushing Obama for the sole reason that he is black. And, other blacks are following her. If this is not racist, I don't know what is. Oprah is a RACIST!!!

Obama has not been in government long enough to lead this country. Hillary has tackled American issues for a long term. And, she takes a stand on what she believes. Obama has not even voted on vital issues, but instead chooses not to vote so he won't be wrong whatever happens. He says Hillary voted for the war, yet Obama refused to vote either way!!

Obama refuses to say the Pledge of Allegiance, hold his hand over his heart during the Pledge and won't even wear an American pin! If Obama is so ashamed of our country, he certainly should not be president. As for his wife - her comments on "I'm finally proud to be an American b/c a black man is running for President" - if she is "finally proud to be American", then maybe she should go back to her country of origin and be proud there.

If Obam gets the Democratic nomination, then I hope that most Democrats will see Obama for the racist he is and vote for McCain, even if he is Republican. If Obama became president, things will only get worst and riots will only break out between Blacks and whites and ruin this country. Obama pushes for black just for black. We should not be voting on skin color, but rather on who will unite this country and make it better. This should not become a white and black America, but rather a united America.

If Obama were Colin Powell, I would vote for him. Mr. Powell has respect, spent a life time working for this country and he is smart. Colin Powell does not come across black or white, but as American!!

Shame on you Oprah - if you are going to push someone solely because of his race, then at least push someone like Colin Powell who is a true American and not a racist bigot!
