in response to reader comment: Just Wish Him Luck and Impartiality

I do better than "wish him luck". I pray for him and, that is heart felt.

Despite hoping the Creator will enlighten him, I still know who he is. "Who he is" has been delivered very clearly from his own mouth and the many close asscociations he had before starting his campaign. He thought the American public was far more deluded and ignorant than they were. He thought he could go on attending his hate filled church of 20 years without anyone being the wiser. That not being the case, he did the politically expedient thing and said he dropped out. How shallow can you get? Didn't matter. The massive level of ignorance that prevails in our country still, prevailed. The deluded and terribly uneducated Americans still managed to forget anything of Obama's past and take his word for every political lie he uttered.

I don't have a problem with giving those who are impoverished a helping hand and, have done that a great deal. However, the presidency is not a charity. It is a position of great power and responsiblity. Obama has his chance whether I give it to him or not. Fair play is an American tradition. You give "fair play" and a "chance" to those who earned the right to get there. He has not earned the right but, had it dumped in his lap because he was politically aware of the American public's total lack of any reality. He knew the press would lie him into the office and bad mouth monumentally every microscopic petty thing on any adversary that could be brought up. There weren't much in the way of good alternate choices but Obama headed the bottom of the list.

Becoming politically "aware" in this or any country is very tricky if you have not been born there. A lot of Americans have no excuse. You "ashraf" have a lot of sense and insight that I can't credit my own population with. I have no quarrel with someone who made the good choice to get out of the Middle East for the reasons you did. You must understand, though, that this country has changed very dramatically and, is going to change even faster. Most won't know what hit them until it is far to late. Keep your mind active and read much everywhere. Truth will present itself.

I am not and never have been racialy "prejudiced". I am a white man who has long wished a black man or woman would step up and run for president so we could put to rest all these silly claims of prejudice in this country. There are very definitely islands of prejudicial communities in this country and scattered individuals throughout. It hasn't defined this country for a long time know matter how many times anyone trots out some distant atrocity from some long ago past to excuse present wishes for an excuse to be lazy and collect welfare. Keeping hatred alive has been a tool used by a lot of people. Racial prejudice is very much alive in the black community. We are about to find out just how much. I already see the signs.

There are a number of black men and women that are have a great deal of integrity. They ran for this presidential position and got buried in the liberal press that dominates this nation's media.
