Recently, I ran into a woman heavily involved in the Romney campaign. And I mean HEAVILY involved in it.
My friends and I were having a private conversation about our support of President Obama. This woman chirped in – unsolicited – about how she hates ObamaCare because she is a small business person. Nothing said of substance, just hatred and emotions. When we attempted to bring up some important points about the issue, we were shut down. In fact, at that point, the woman became flustered – apparently she never had anyone attempt to speak some rational thoughts about ObamaCare to her – she resorted to the use of the “N…..” word for black people and President Obama.
Later, I am sitting in a restaurant with stupid televisions blaring and hear a negative Allen West advertisement (also unsolicited for those of us who go to a restaurant to eat, not end up with the indigestion of political crap and television) . West’s wife is complaining about the racism against her husband. Funny, all the times I have heard true racist derogatory remarks about Barack Obama and I have NEVER seen Michelle on television crying about how people treat her husband!
Further than that is the fact I have NEVER HEARD RACIST REMARKS SPOKEN AGAINST ALLEN WEST. Yet, I hear plenty of such remarks spoken against Barack Obama. Hmmmm…. Michelle prefers not to stir up the mud of racism, even though it is prevalent and she MUST know about it. But Ms. West, the Republican in a party with plenty of racist supporters of Romney, chooses to stir up the mud.
The ones most uncomfortable with themselves are the ones who lash out. Most of the remarks about Allen West have not been about his race, but about him being a wacko. And, Ms. West, I live among the people, not among those in ivory towers who spend money for vicious and deceptive advertisements. Silly me.
