Recent reports in the news about Barack Obama are the whole reason I, along with the majority of Americans, hate politicians.
This morning on Fox News Channel, clearly more fair and balanced than any of the other national news networks, reported that two Muslim women wearing head scarves were told to move by Obama staffers from their seats directly behind the candidate in camera shot. Clearly, Obama is still sensitive about his Muslim roots and felt it necessary to make such a maneuver. That's called manipulation. I, who spent years casting audiences, also can clearly see there's a lot more to this than meets the eye. The audience we always see directly behind him in camera shot during every scripted campaign speech is predominantly white. Look real hard and you'll never see any African-Americans. Does anyone else find this odd considerting his high African American support? I contend that if the racial make-up of the people seen in his direct camera shot (some 50 or so) represented the make up of his actual audience, we would see a lot more African Americans than none.
So let me get this straight. No Muslims. No African Americans. All whites; men and women in his direct shots. Flag pin on, then off, then on again to appease those who are still "bitter" about their lives. Denounce your church and your pastor for inflamatory comments 20 years later when you need to get elected to the highest national office. Oh, and has anyone taken the opportunity to reasearch what he did to the incumbant candidate to basically steal the election for his state senate seat in Illinois by questioning her petition signatures at the last minute? "No comment. That was a long time ago."
No senator, it wasn't. I'm a New Yorker and we speak our minds. You're full of crap. I only hope America will see you for what and who you really are. I know I can.
