Obama Has The Intelligence, Dedication And Dignity Of Jackie Robinson

This is my reaction to Marlene Phillips' Article on The Huffington Post:

WOW! You hit it right on the head!

A year ago, I worried that America may not be ready to vote for a Black man. Thankfully, a majority of Americans have proven me wrong. Obama's calm demeanor and temperament are just as important as his policies. McCain's demeanor is just scary. He looks for excuses for his actions and the actions of his followers. How in the heck does Obama NOT agreeing to McCain's 'town halls' have to do with all of the negative ads from the Republicans? The only 'negative' ad that McCain could site was one attacking his POSITION on an issue. (he was far too afraid to go after the Keating ad.)

We've had 8 years of bad decisions made in haste, and those are from a President with a far calmer disposition than that of McCain. Imagine 9/11 with McCain as President.... Iraq would have been bombed, IMMEDIATELY. No fact-checking, no checking with intel, just load up the bombs and cut 'em loose.

This country needs a thoughtful, calm, intelligent person to be President; someone who will carefully evaluate the situation and make decisions based on what is truly best. Not an unbranded cattle that can be steered into the nearest herd depending on where things stand at the moment, for that is the true definition of a maverick.

You can't put lipstick on THIS pig

This floored me this morning:
This morning on CNN Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer Leslie Sanchez, a Republican strategists, talking about the economy moving the public against the party in power and towards Obama and not any of his policies, said "let's call a spade a spade."

One of the other 'talking heads' on this show was Donna Brazile.

The Republicans were quick to go after Obama for his 'lipstick on a pig' line, a line McCain himself had used earlier this year, they should catch some flak for this gaff.

I do not think that this woman is an outright racist, but she sure as hell lacks any tact. (But there is no getting around the racist implications of that phrase)
