Barack Obama's Racially Skewed Campaign

A report today on World Net Daily has given yet another example of the racial hatred present in Barack Obama's campaign. Obama has insisted on many occasions that his wife, Michelle, is his most trusted and senior advisor, and yet she continues her rants against America's evils, especially the evils of "whitey." Of course, Obama continues to defend his wife and laugh off whatever she says as the press giving undue attention to minor details, but I think Michelle is setting thetone for his campaign and continuing to insert racial tension. An anonymous reader of the World Net Daily account referred to Michelle Obama as "an angry and bitter soul." What do you think? http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=66354

Ok, I'm no fan of Obama, and I always look forward to more evidence of what kind of people he and his wife truly are, but you are misleading people by quoting such a small part of that article. The focus of the article is on the unsubstantiated claim that Michelle Obama made a speech about the evils of "whitey". The article makes it very clear that the claims are unsubstantiated and no video has been produced to prove that she ever said such things. Please make sure you have a real story and not a story about fake stories before getting people all riled up. All you really do with such material is fuel the people who say that you believe everything you read in email hoaxes and anti-Obama blogs.

Point taken. However, after searching You Tube for the alleged video this morning, I have concluded that the video exists and one of Obama's enemies are holding onto it until the proper time OR that the rumor of the video may have been released by democratic strategists who wantpeople to look for it and in the process listen to all the videos out there of Michelle Obama and counter the geunuine videos of her saying she is proud of America for the first time. Make no mistake about it, she is a good campaigner, and you can't blame democrats for trying to get people listening to her.

I am not an American but I would like to comment that I hope his candidacy would not become a racial leadership. I do hope that he would also become a good leader in case he would really win the polls this year. I guess majority has already chosen him to lead the presidential race and we should all respect that choice else just don't vote for him in the coming election. if in case he still wind the race then those that are not supportive of him will just have to wait for him to end his tenure as the voice of the people has spoken and that is what democracy is all about.
