Rep. Diane Watson (D.-Calif.) at Town Hall Meeting Says Opponents are "Trying to see that the First President who looks Like Me -- Fails" I am getting a little ticked off with the ridiculous comments coming from our elected officials on both sides of the aisle over health care reform. The latest comments to raise eyebrows came from Rep. Diane E. Watson (D-Calif.) last night during a town hall meeting at Wade AME Church. She claimed that "those opposed to health care reform are attempting to destroy a president "who looks like me." Her exact words were, "They are spreading fear and they're trying to see that the first president who looks like me -- fails." Of course, she wasn't through putting her foot in her mouth. She went on to praise the healthcare system in Cuba, and apparently the Cuban revolution itself. She deliberately chose to ignore the fact that the people living in Cuba are living under communist rule and they are technologically years behind the United States. It's amazing that the left is mysteriously silent on this racial dig, but they landed like a ton of bricks on Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins who mentioned the "great white hope" in her comments at a town hall meeting in Kansas. Sorry, but this is ridiculous and counterproductive on both sides of the aisle. http://blackpoliticalthought.blogspo...town-hall.html Your source for a daily dose of conservative commentary on social and political issues from an African American ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~` I can't believe that this woman is a represetative, a member of Congress. I can't believe we elected a person who sounds like her. She loves Fidel Castro...'He was one of the brightest leaders I've ever met' She is a birther! She said, 'A country who has elected someone from Kenya and Kansas'.
