My RWNJ friends are coming thru for me now that I agree with them about something. The source is World Net Daily so keep that in mind. Obama apparently has a different standards for different people. :doh!:

"It seems to be that we can forgive a 100-year-old senator for some of the indiscretion of his youth, but, what is more difficult to forgive is the current president of the U.S. Senate (Lott) suggesting we had been better off if we had followed a segregationist path in this country after all of the battles and fights for civil rights and all the work that we still have to do," said Obama.

He added: "The Republican Party itself has to drive out Trent Lott. If they have to stand for something, they have to stand up and say this is not the person we want representing our party."

Well, Lott, ostensibly, was saying we would be better off segregated.
Wright has said the exact opposite.

No hypocrisy here.

Oops.

Obama closed his Tuesday letter by stating, “A Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate would mean a real change in the priorities of Washington, but more importantly, it would provide significant change for everyday people across America.

“Remember, in order to win back the Senate majority, we need Robert Byrd.”

It's nice that Obama can overlook overt racism when it's politically expedient.

They are opposite sides of the same coin. Your mental gymnastics doesn't erase the fact that Baarack was none too willing to forgive negative racial remarks from one race and not from the other.

Mental gymnastics? I'm not that agile.
I simply see a difference in a preacher using some fiery rhetoric that Obama has admonished (and fired the guy from his staff for), and a guy calling for the extension of segregation.

And their common denominator is a person who wants to be THE head of government and his inability to be consistent on the issue of race.

Not to mention King Carl, the Iraq War. I like my odds on Obamessiah.

Of course, the guy wasn't calling for an extension of segregation at all. You may or may not realize that, but I'm confident Obama did when he decided to take the path of the demagogue instead of the path of honor on this issue.

Which one is responsible for creation of laws which effect a nation and which one just a public speaker?

Clinton and Reagan were also great leaders, and Reagan in particular was the leader of a movement. Obama is a great speaker, past that I haven't seen anything in him.

But don't get me wrong, he's a GREAT speaker, probably one of the best out there right now. Should make tons of money on the speaking circuit. :D

Did Trent Lott actually say "segregationist past" or is Obama inferring that from his statements? I don't recall the original quote.

Could you please furnish the quote where Lott asked for segregation? I think I must have missed it.

Come off your high horse, I was a huge Reagan backer (voted for him both times) but he was nothing more than a great public speaker before being elected the first time. He certainly was not a great thinker nor did he have incredibly well thought out plans. He was a former President of SAG and a fine governor and nothing more. He became a true leader while in office, you could easily say he rose to the job.

It's what Thurmond was running on.

"I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either."

- Trent Lott

I don't think Lott really advocates segregation, but his comment was not well thought out.

Your complete lack of political awareness goes back a lot farther than I realized.

Don't forget, he also spied on and turned in his friends that he worked with.
