A Post-Racial President?
by Thomas Sowell - July 28th, 2009 - Townhall.com
Those who were shocked at President Obama's cheap shot at the Cambridge police for being "stupid" in arresting Henry Louis Gates must have been among those who let their wishes prevail over the obvious implications of Obama's 20 years of association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Anyone who can believe that Obama did not understand what the racist rants of Jeremiah Wright meant can believe anything.
With race-- as with campaign finance, transparency and the rest-- Barack Obama knows what the public wants to hear and that is what he has said. But his policies as president have been the opposite of his rhetoric, with race as with other issues.
That is the real problem with Obama. He is the most divisive President in our history, yet his supporters are angry because they see him as a uniter and CANNOT see his flaws. They are either black or overwhelmed with white guilt, so they cannot understand why so many Americans are outraged at Obama's constant groveling apologies to other nations. Obama always makes it clear, he is not groveling for himself, but for the evil and flawed America. The words I think of when I think of Obama are narcissist, charlatan and traitor. Certainly not the description words anyone would choose for a President.
