McCain Republican’s Going Racist!

When you have a broken household appliance, you call on someone to fix it. You call Sears if you have a warranty to get it fixed as soon as possible. You get an appointment where nine times out of ten you have to take time off from work. All you know is that if the appliance is not working then your household is screwed. When that person walks in the door of your home do you really care what color their skin is if they can fix your broken appliance? Being President of this nation is not about the color of your skin but getting the damn job done, done right, and your being able to be proud in your government appliance once more.

Our government is an appliance that touches each and every single one of our lives at one point or another during our life cycle. Be it Social Security when you retire or the Veterans Administration from injuries you received in service to America, at some point you will be on the phone with your Federal Government in your lifetime. Right now as I type this post, the only response coming from our government appliance is please hold.

What I find ironic about the election process between John McCain and Barack Obama is the rude accusation coming from the McCain campaign that Obama is playing the race card. Over at the Washington Post they have this little update of interest…

“Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck,” Mr. McCain’s campaign manager, Rick Davis, charged in a statement with which Mr. McCain later said he agreed. “It’s divisive, negative, shameful and wrong.”

In leveling the charge, Mr. Davis was referring to comments that Mr. Obama made Wednesday in Missouri when he reacted to the increasingly negative tone and negative advertisements from the McCain campaign, including one that likens Mr. Obama’s celebrity status to that of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.

“So nobody really thinks that Bush or McCain have a real answer for the challenges we face, so what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” Mr. Obama said in Springfield, Mo., echoing earlier remarks. “You know, he’s not patriotic enough. He’s got a funny name. You know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on those dollar bills, you know. He’s risky. That’s essentially the argument they’re making.”

With his rejoinder about playing “the race card,” Mr. Davis effectively assured that race would once again become an unavoidable issue as voters face an election in which, for the first time, one of the major parties’ nominees is African-American.

And with its criticism, the McCain campaign was ensuring that Mr. Obama’s race — he is the son of a black man from Kenya and a white woman from Kansas — would again be a factor in coverage of the presidential race. On Thursday, it took the spotlight from Mr. Obama when he had sought to attack Mr. McCain on energy issues.

Race card played and by none other than the campaign to elect John McCain for President. Well that is a really scary thought when it comes to Presidential elections! Is the distinguished Senator from Arizona going to outright declare that Americans should not vote for an African American? Is he or is he not declaring that Senator Obama is in fact a black man even though his mother is a white woman to corner the racist vote? Do you notice that none of this has to do with the issues we face in America other than the color of one persons skin?

Do yourself a favor and put a blindfold on, listen to John McCain on energy policies (his latest flip anyway), and then listen to Barack Obama (Consistent Policy) on his energy policies and you decide who has a real clue as to what America really needs?

If the McCain campaign wants to play the race card then that is their folly. If they want to discuss real issues then I’m sure Senator Obama would be willing to debate him/his aides/his campaign manager/the janitor or whoever is really running the McCain for President campaign.

All I have to offer you in this post is a better day, a better life, a chance for change when the darkness of our people living as best they can and seeing the opportunities for them to succeed in life surpassing them every day that staying the course promises. John McCain is not promising that, not even hinting at it but we the people can say “Yes We Can”.

Hope is alive in America and Racism should pass the way that time has given us to grow past it. (Video Link)

In the course of our lives we all must look to the future, our children, and hope that their lives will be just one step better than ours. Racism has no place in our melting pot society and “Yes We Can” change America. While Senator McCain goes off playing the race card, my children’s future depends on policies that will change the path of America for the better. In that thought, believing that we as a people can make it better is the message of hope and only one candidate is selling hope. Thank you Senator Obama for doing so.
