Nothing New From Obama

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood

Submitted by ster (United States), May 12, 2008 at 19:05

At the beginning of his campaign, his white relatives were not shown on his website (none), even though THEY raised him once his father split. Once it was pointed out on the network news, pictures of him and his white relatives magically appeared on his website the very next day.

Even though his father split and was a deadbeat, Obama hails him in a book about his father - even though his mother and grandparents raised him for most of his life.

When the Rev Wright thing came out, he threw is grandmother under the bus (the white one) for political expediency because of something she said 20 years ago. The same think that Jesse Jackson said. She's not here to defend herself.

Just funny how Barack uses his father (who's black) to promote himself and even disses and hides his white family for political reasons. Yet, he has to hide things about his father, and when people call him on his lies and exaggerations, they get called racist.

Who's the racist here? My belief is that the only racist is Obama himself.
Why can't he just tell the truth? I'll tell you... because he is just another lying politician. There is no "change" here (boy, that's getting old!) - just another scamming politician hungry for power, one that will do/say anything to get to the oval office, all the while calling others liars and racists if they challenge him.

Obama is the only racist in this campaign.
