moreover, it's not even an opinion by a regular LA Times op-ed writer. this is one op-ed piece by a guy who most often writes about hollywood. calling this an LA Times piece is about like saying that the NY Times is pro guns because they allowed Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association to write an op-ed. <br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Actually Rush picked up on an article published by the very liberal LA Times defining Obama as "The Magic Negro" Careful where you cast your dispersions gw<p><hr></blockquote><p>As others have stated, Limbaugh used this opinion piece as a justification to play his juvenile "Magic Negro" song. The opinion piece was by a film historian who wrote his opinion in the context of film history.<br><br>Rush uses his "Magic Negro" song solely in the context of derogatory race-baiting disguised as satire and justified by blaming the "liberal " LA Times.<br><br>And by the way, the LA Times does not have the liberal slant that you claim it to, it was purchased by the Tribune Corporation several years ago and they promptly fired their left-leaning writers. I read the LA Times every day, so please don't tell me it's something different because Rush tells you so. (Yes, now I get to read LAT's Max Boot and Jonah Goldberg rather than Robert Scheer). <br><br>Do you also justify Rush's Obama "Spade and the Hoe" satire?<br><br>Your echoing of Limbaugh's shallow satire and claiming our support of Obama is due to "White Guilt" is equally as shallow. You didn't put your "White Guilt" claim in context of the "Magic Negro", I did by identifying it with Limbaugh, you just stated as our problem. Rush loves to claim it's the Democratic party that has a problem with race and gender, and somehow having a black, a hispanic, and a woman candidates proves his point ... I guess in his warped mind that makes sense. And somehow those of us on this forum supporting Obama proves that point for you too, and you echo Limbaugh's opinion that we must have the problem. What complete nonsense.<br><br>Sure mojo, you justify your Hussein Obama posts too as we've discussed previously. Your intentions are obvious and they fool no one.<br><br><br>I posted the "Yes We Can" video because I felt a strong connection to the uplifting and positive context it presents. Unfortunate that you find it only as an opportunity to drag that message into the gutter. And so it goes.<br><br><br><br> <br><br><br><br><br>
With all due respect for you as a provocateur, Mojo, you are doing the exact same thing that Rush did even here in the forum. You are trying to make a point by co-opting someone else's quote, but then not answering to the arguments against because after all, "Rush did not write the article."<br><br>That does not change the charges that you leveled against Sen. Obama without comment. The "empty suit" you are accusing of saying nothing has had a record of promoting transparency and building coalitions totally outside of ideological partisanship. I can understand how someone from outside of Illinois might not understand this, but to level these kinds of charges without making sense of them with some reference to Sen. Obama's record or public statement is at the intersection of arrogance and ignorance, the very place we're all trying to drag this country away from.<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U

"promoting transparency and building coalitions totally outside of ideological partisanship."<br><br>"to level these kinds of charges without making sense of them with some reference to Sen. Obama's record or public statement"<br><br>I will say it again. The man is an empty suit. He can say whatever he wants to in stump speeches or on his web site. But the man has little if any record of taking a stance on important issues during his THREE years as a US Senator. Look at his voting record. On key issues he takes the no road by a wielding the mighty no vote. Is that how a real leader acts? Or an empty suit? <br><br>And on issues where he does take a stand this is what he stands for...<br>Abortions on demand<br>Carte blanche amnesty to illegals, and medicaid and welfare benefits for them in the mean time.<br>Gun control limiting the sale and distribution of semi automatic firearms. My Remington 1100 shotgun would fall into that category. <br><br>I wish I could list more but that is about all he has time for. Too busy on the campaign trail since, oh, about his third month as a US Senator.<br><br><br><br><br>
http://www.ontheissues.org/Senate/Barack_Obama.htm <br><br>why doesn't his extensive legislative experience in Illinois count? he procedurally voted present a few hundred times but still voted more than 4,000 times. and the "present" strategy is something that is used in Illinois as strategy to protect more vulnerable members of your own party, for example. Obama even used it when he knew legislation was unconstitutional even though he he felt as though the legislation was on the right track. <br><br>Obama has as much detail and more than any other candidate still viable if you look on their websites. he's telling you what he intends to do.<br><br>
maybe? just maybe? <br><br>sometimes experience is everything to everybody:<br><br>one experienced John McCain fought against the tax cuts being permanent. <br><br>the other experienced John McCain is now supporting the tax cuts being permanent. <br><br>which experienced McCain did you like?<br><br>
