I have done more than a few stories on the fact that while there may be valid excuses for the animosity towards President they are merely excuses to cover the reality that is is all about racism on both sides of the color barrier. I did a story 4 days ago showing that
Having said that, I like you was disappointed in President Obama when he sided with the Black professor before knowing the facts and said Cambridge Officer Gates acted stupidly while to an unbiased eye it appears the Professor acted racist. President Obama showed even he has his ingrained racial issues. I am afraid Blacks are more guilty of racism than many whites. I am afraid the Black Reverend in the video in the above link is right saying 90% of Racist Blacks voted for Obama.
I do not care what color a person is just that they do the job at hand the best. That said, during the hearing on whether or not to admonish Joe Wilson for yelling "you lie" interrupting President Obama's speech the Black Caucus came out saying it was racial and Wilson had to be held accountable. Black Representative Hank Johnson said pretty soon we will have men riding around wearing white robes and wearing white hoods.
Dem rep: Wilson outburst 'instigated more racist sentiment'
I found that a bit strong but I had to agree with Congressman Clyburn and certainly saw his point. He said the reason for wanting Wilson admonished had nothing to do with playing Politics. After listening to his reasons for wanting Joe Wilson rebuked I have to agree! He was a teacher his son is a teacher in Joe Wilson's District and his grandchildren go to school in Wilson's District.
Republican Boehner said this is hypocrisy and wanted to get on with the people's Business. What? They have not done the peoples business since Bush was elected! It is hypocrisy but Republicans are guilty of it. So to is Joe Wilson who called President Obama a liar and accused him of wanting to give illegal aliens medical coverage.
* I found out Joe Wilson in 2003 in the Medicare prescription modernization Act for prescription medicine under Bush that "DID cover illegal aliens. * Also was a member of the sons of confederate Veterans that has been dominated by racial extremists. In the Bill I must say as we all know, there were elements that included illegal immigrants but they were removed around a month ago. However as most also know, there is a 1986 Law "President Reagan by the way" that says illegal aliens must be treated by hospitals. That has always bothered me and that will not change.
That said, the facts in this case show Wilson is wrong and even lying or not telling the truth whatever you want to call it! However that has proven to be a plus to other racists who support him and so far have donated more than $2 million to his reelection campaign. His competition for the seat has also received around $1.5 million. It appears that creating controversy and commotion is now a way of life in gathering political contributions. I don't like this!
If Wilson just went on the floor of the House and apologized this would have gone away but then he wanted have gotten $2 million in campaign contributions. Pelosi really did want this to go away but despite what they are saying Republicans did not want this to go away and as you know they do not want to do the peoples work. For what it is worth the vote for admonishment was approved 240 yay 170 nay's so the slap on the hand is official. Please check How House has handled other Joe Wilson-like moments
* In closing this will now melt into Congressional obscurity I mean history along with the rest of their worthless activity or more apt, inactivity Since Partisan bickering under Bush took the place of doing the peoples work. Like him or not President Carter sees what is happening in the country! He said that not only was what Wilson said all about racism and the belief by many whites that Blacks are incapable of running the country but underlying everything is Racism! I am sick of Republicans denying it to hide their divide and conquer racist agenda!
