OK, we are in the middle of another election cycle. Is there another sport where the outcome is actually more important? And make no mistake about it. Politics IS a sport these days. And a superstar is born simply by being good at reading a teleprompter.
Barry O has turned political correctness into political gold.
Don't believe me?
Forget all the rhetorical talking points. Let's just look at FACTS.
# of days a kindergarten student spends in class to graduate to 1st grade: 180
# of working days Barry has spent in Congress: 143
# of times the sole committee Barry chairs has met: 0 (That's not a misprint. They've NEVER met)
Prior to becoming a U.S. Senator, Mr. O was a state senator in the great state of Illinois. While there, he voted "present" ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY times when a simple yes or no was requested. "Present"? Can you GET any more politically correct than to refuse to take a position on an issue?
This slick Chicago politician has built a nothing career into a serious run for the Presidency based on smoke, mirrors, and a VERY strong reliance on political correctness. This man is literally the LEAST qualified person to EVER run for the position from a major party in this nations history. That's not opinion, it's fact. Yet he's the front runner. Because he's black (sorta) and delivers speechs written for him by others very, very well.
He repeatedly states he doesn't want race to enter the equation then repeats over and over that the republicans "will" bring race into it, hence creating an issue that doesn't exist. He's inventing the race card just as he invents his qualifications. It actually worked against Hillary. Is it going to work in the general election, as well? Is this man who isn't qualified to lead a major senate committee going to win the Presidential election by playing political correctness to the extreme?
Frankly, I don't get it. I have nothing against this very talented orator in the least. And some day he might be a good candidate for top dog. That day surely isn't today with his incredible lack of experience.
WARNING: This is going to sound racist but isn't. It's just an observation:
We have a man whose Black father abandoned him and who openly admits he was raised by his White grandmother clinging to being a "Black" man who speaks as well as a "white" man as the reason to elect him. Huh? B.O. is every bit as much "white" as he is "black". So why does he keep subtley (and not so subtley) bringing up his "blackness"?
Political correctness could very well be our undoing.
One last thing. When asked about Russia invading Georgia and how he'd handle it, Barry's response was "Let the U.N. Security council handle it"
Apparently neither Mr. O nor his multitude of advisers is aware that Russia has veto power on the security council rendering it completely impotent on the matter.
Commander in Chief? Lord help us all.
