Crossover Vote

The Democrats on the talk radio are whining about cross over voters from the Republican side voting for Hillary to hurt Obama in the primaries. All I can say is GOOD! You guys (Dems) have been doing this to the Republicans for while. At the start of primary season I was hearing the same stories except it was the Dems voting for McCain to knock out the “Conservative” candidates and help their side. Strange how that never seemed to get the news coverage that the Republicans are getting for the same thing. Bit of a double standard if you ask me. . . .

Obama also seems to be in trouble for his ties to a bigot of a pastor and his statements. I think this is going to come back to haunt him big time. Here is a sample of his pastors speeches from CNN’s web site

"We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye," he said. "We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant. Because the stuff we have done overseas has now brought right back into our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost."

This guy is a hate filled nut, and Obama backs him. He is now coming out to speak against him but it seems a bit too little too late to me. I think he is trying to get away from him for political reasons only, not because of his beliefs. If he really wanted to make a statement he would be talking against him in much stronger terms and calling for some kind of change in how blacks deal with this kind of preacher. . . . but it is not happening. I think he still backs this guy, may even buy into it but is trying to look good for the papers knowing that it will damage him badly if he is seen as tied to this guy . . .
