Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
It's telling that you are attacking the idea of context as you act as though the entirety of a man is contained in the three or four most controversial clips of him speaking. Sen. Obama's answer to your very question is that you do not know the man any more than you know his grandmother for her small failings.<br><br>People are assuming that you have not watched or read the speech because you are ignoring large chunks of it that address all of this without the need for any kind of interpretation.<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
"A More Perfect Union" will not be made by a very disingenuous double-standard. I would have to assume that Barack Obama did not know this man any more than you know his grandmother for her small failings. <br><br>Presidential hopeful Barack Obama weighed in on Imus' remarks.<br><br>"The comments of Don Imus were divisive, hurtful and offensive to Americans of all backgrounds," said the senator from Illinois. "With a public platform, comes a trust. As far as I'm concerned, he violated that trust."<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I’ll keep my freedom, my guns and my money – you can keep the change.
Give it up nk. You are talking to minds made up. A wall. No words from Obama or you are going to change that. Some words by a preacher in a church are enough to erase the presidential aspirations of any man or woman within hearing distance. Pretty amazing super powers this preacher has. Even when the aspirant condemns the words, that is not enough. He should have run from the building when that man spoke. Even though that man has been doing kind works and is spreading the teachings of Jesus. <br><br>If you are planning on running for President. This is what you must do if you hear any words that criticize our government. Jump from your seat and scream, "I condemn you." Then run away as fast as you can. Then you will be assured that these walls of criticism will never occur. That you will garner all the votes.<br><br>Not.<br><br>Meanwhile John McCain embraces the endorsement of John Hagee who hates you because you are Catholic. But he doesn't stop there. He hates muslims and gays too. But does McCain denounce Hagee? No way! That is his base. The same base that is all up in arms because of the reverend Wright's words.<br><br>To call this a double standard is completely unfair to the clear and concise way that Obama has explained everything in his 37 minute speech yesterday. We can wait for McCain's 37 minute speech explaining Hagee. Waiting for Godot.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
For some, I don't think it has anything to do with Wright. For the most hard-bitten partisans, Wright is just the issue du jour over the last week to use in order to save their partisan face. More about this in another thread... <br><br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
That sort of looks like a cross between Prince Philip and Mr. President Bush. Hmmmm . . . I bet they're related. <br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>
