So Geraldine Ferraro stepped down from her role in the Clinton campaign because she said this obviously bigoted and racist comment:

“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept,” she said.

Anyone else see this as just a little scary? Read it again…is it POSSIBLE she has a point? There’s an equal chance she’s WAY off. Quite possibly Obama’s popularity isn’t at ALL attached to his skin color…but in what way is having the opinion that race is a powerful force behind his popularity off-limits?

Has the political correctness gotten so intense, Geraldine Ferraro can’t have an opinion about the role of skin color in a Presidential campaign?

The Democratic party is slowly losing its mind.

Thought Police strike again.

  • Ms. Powers’ comment regarding Hillary being a monster and then being forced to step down set the tone. Of course Hillary couldn’t be out-done.

    Actually, I’m surprised that Obama didn’t request that Hillary formally reject Ms. Ferraro’s endorsement. Note I said formally reject, not to be confused with merely distancing oneself. Yes, this whole thing is becoming a farce and I’m about to lose interest.

    What takes the cake for me is Hillary running the 3 AM ad and then mentioning Obama as her VP. I understand that rhetoric has a role in politics, but this is hypocracy at a 1st grade level. Maybe after Obama “hangs out” with her as a VP, he will have the necessary experience to lead the country. Just like Hillary’s experience with Bill. Maybe I can start golfing with W and I’ll be vetted for a 2012 run. I think I’ll file papers for my exploratory committee tomorrow.

  • The fact that Obama has substantially the same views as Hillary and gets 80% of the black vote means that her comment is absolutely legitimate.

  • Well of course she has a damned point…(93% in Mississippi–George Bush does better than 7 percent) and meanwhile Anderson Cooper finds it “distracting” that anyone would dare to spend time talking about the divisive, scathing, bigoted remarks from the pastor of Obama’s church of 20 years.

    I hope they keep it up…they’re going to continue to make fools of themselves.

    Hey, you need a campaign manager?

  • Gotta love the liberals. Say something suggesting a black person’s race makes him inferior, and they (expectedly) call you a racist. Say something suggesting a black person’s race makes him superior, and they still call you a racist.
