Obama continued, repeating an attack from earlier in the day. “What they’re saying is ‘Well, we know we’re not very good but you can’t risk electing Obama. You know, he’s new, he doesn’t look like the other presidents on the currency, he’s a got a funny name.’”

Yep, worked against Clinton so might as well recycle it now that the trip was nothing more than an expensive photo op and his sure lead is now only in his head. :deevee::doh!:

The thing you're calling "the race card" has been your very argument against him for months. Acknowledging the existence of a smear campaign is only "playing the race card" if you're a supporter of said smear campaign.

But you're right, I just know there's SOMETHING about him that I don't like! There's SOMETHING off about that man.

That Ludacris "song" isn't going to win him any votes.That Ludacris "song" was a spur-of-the-moment freestyle that had nothing to do with anything, but hey, as long as it allows Hannity to add another name to his "radicals associated with Obama" (laffo) list, let's milk that shit.

Mr. Obama, how do you think the electorate will respond upon hearing that you're supported by a man who has many hos in different area codes?

Apparently, Barack Hussein was referring to something else, according to his campaign. Who speaks for Barack Hussein, anyway?

"An Obama spokesman denied that the line about "dollar bills" was related to the Democrat's race"

and

Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said Thursday that the senator was not referring to race.

"What Barack Obama was talking about was that he didn't get here after spending decades in Washington," Gibbs said. "There is nothing more to this than the fact that he was describing that he was new to the political scene. He was referring to the fact that he didn't come into the race with the history of others. It is not about race."

You've got to be kidding me...

Reparations aren't a friggin' issue. They're trying to be made into one. This country has a ton of real problems to address. Unfortunately the more the partisan climate keeps up and the more you paint Obama as some crazy irresponsible radical, the less likely the country's problems will ever be resolved. Obama's not going to convert us to communism and McCain isn't going to get us into wars with every middle-eastern country he can. The fearmongering needs to stop.

And no, irrationally trying to scare white people doesn't make you a racist. It just makes you a hack, willing to exploit pretty much anything for the desired result.

Reparations is an issue for the radical left and there are a lot of people in that group who reasonably believe that Obama is their guy. Obama could easily put an end to the speculation by simply addressing the issue in a direct and honest way.

Remarks of Senator Barack Obama: Take Back America
Wednesday, June 14, 2006
Printable Format
As prepared for delivery
Washington, DC

Thank you. Thank you Roger Hickey and Bob Borosage for bringing us all together today and thank you for your leadership in the cause of a more progressive America.

My friends, we meet here today at a time where we find ourselves at a crossroads in America's history.

It's a time where you can go to any town hall or street corner or coffee shop and hear people express the same anxiety about the future; hear them convey the same uncertainty about the direction we're headed as a country. Whether it's the war or Katrina or their health care or their jobs, you hear people say that we've finally arrived at a moment where something must change.

These are Americans who still believe in an America where anything's possible - they just don't think their leaders do. These are Americans who still dream big dreams -they just sense their leaders have forgotten how.

I remember when I first ran for the state Senate - my very first race. A seat had opened up, and some friends asked me if I'd be interested in running. Well, I thought about it, and then I did what every wise man does when faced with a difficult decision: I prayed, and I asked my wife.

And after consulting with these higher powers, I threw my hat in the ring and I did what every person on a campaign does - I talked to anyone who'd listen.

I went to bake sales and barber shops and if there were two guys standing on the corner I'd pull up and hand them literature. And everywhere I went I'd get two questions:

First, they'd ask, "Where'd you get that funny name, Barack Obama?" Because people just couldn't pronounce it. They'd call me "Alabama," or they'd call me "Yo Mama." And I'd have to explain that I got the name from my father, who was from Kenya.

And the second thing people would ask me was, "You seem like a nice young man.

You teach law school, you're a civil rights attorney, you organize voter registration, you're a family man - why would you wanna go into something dirty and nasty like politics?"

And I understood the question because it revealed the cynicism people feel about public life today. That even though we may get involved out of civic obligation every few years, we don't always have confidence that government can make a difference in our lives.

So I understand the cynicism. But whenever I get in that mood, I think about something that happened to me on the eve of my election to the United States Senate.

We had held a large rally the night before in the Southside of Chicago, which is where I live. And in the midst of this rally, someone comes up to me and says that there's a woman who'd like to come meet you, and she's traveled a long way and she wants to take a picture and shake your hand.

And so I said fine, and I met her, and we talked.

And all of this would have been unremarkable except for the fact that this woman, Marguerite Lewis, was born in 1899 and was 105 years old.

And ever since I met this frail, one-hundred-and-five-year-old African-American woman who had found the strength to leave her house and come to a rally because she believed that her voice mattered, I've thought about all she's seen in her life.

I've thought about the fact that when she was born, there weren't cars on the road, and no airplanes in the sky. That she was born under the cloud of Jim Crow, free in theory but still enslaved in so many ways. That she was born at a time for black folks when lynchings were not uncommon, but voting was.
I've thought about how she lived to see a world war and a Great Depression and a second world war, and how she saw her brothers and uncles and nephews and cousins coming home from those wars and still have to sit at the back of a bus.
And I thought about how she saw women finally win the right to vote. And how she watched FDR lift this nation out of fear and send millions to college on the GI Bill and lift millions out of poverty with Social Security. How she saw unions rise up and a middle-class prosper, and watched immigrants leave distant shores in search of an idea known as America.

She believed in this idea with all her heart and she saw this progress around her and she had faith that someday it would be her turn. And when she finally she saw hope breaking through the horizon in the Civil Rights Movement, she thought, "Maybe it's my turn."
