    Considering the accusations made by Obama on the Clintons and the Democrats about the Republicans, I thought this blog post may be worth looking at and discussing.

    It's some facts about Al Sharpton. The same Sharpton embraced by Obama, the Clintons, and most Democrats. To a lesser extent the same type of fact sheet could be done on Jesse Jackson, onetime Democratic Presidential candidate.

    Consider now how the Right has acted about Ron Paul. Don Black. David Duke. Think even how the perceived racism by Trott was met by mainstream Republicans. Is the Left going to argue that the Right is too PC?

    All I can say is that the candidates better be very careful from here on out. Anything that a candidate may say will be picked up, analyzed under the proverbial microscope, likely taken out of context and blown out of proportion by his political opponents.

    Obama belongs to a racist-oriented church congregation.

    Yeah. Right. Do you have a link to an official statement from his church or is this simply your opinion.

    Trinity Church, according to reports, does not allow whites as members.

    Let me put it this way, before I link you up to their statement..

    What would you think about this if you saw it on a website for one of the candidates?

    Perhaps it is racist. I don’t honestly know. I just understand that political biases sometimes clouds people’s minds when it comes to the activities and memberships that the political opponent may be involved in.

    Yep. White groups have their despicable racist clubs too. It sounds like something William Joyce would write. What candidate endorses (or endorsed) it, David Duke or Robert Byrd?

    Okay, now let's read the statement from Trinity Church of Christ, Obama's church...

    I hope you can note the "similarities". I actually simply changed a word or two...

    Read some of those sermons. They teach an interesting form of supremacy based on the "cradle of civilization".

    Okay. I guess that I spoke too soon and out of ignorance and put my foot in my mouth. Has the church been questioned about its seemingly racist comments? Has Obama made clear his opinion on the church’s apparent racist comments?

    No. It appears he has been given a pass. Or one of his opponents are just waiting in the wings with the information.

    Even if it isn't in his heart, such association from a white candidate would have ended their run by now and they never would get to be one of the two top spots.
