Beware Barack Obama and Geraldo Rivera
The truth is that the media made Barack Hussein Obama a media darling and a serious contender.
Barack's been treated like a rock star (and mention of his admitted cocaine use became reason for Clinton supporters to apologize instead of reason for voters to be concerned).
The media is rubbing it in on Hillary, even broadcasting an interview of a young black female announcing that she would vote for Barack in a Democrat primary instead of her "Wellesley sister."
Barack has been running as a feel-good candidate, especially revving up black and younger voters by minimizing the value of experience (since he doesn't have much) and peddling hope and change while being long of drama and short on detail.
The media isn't asking, "Where's the beef?," and the Clintons aren't either.
Even the ambitious Hillary, who probably has been running for president since kindergarten too, did not run for president as a rookie Senator.
William Shakespeare: "Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He thinks too much: such men are dangerous."
Barack has that lean and hungry look too and he is even more ambitious and dangerous than Hillary.
National Journal ranked Barack as the most liberal member of the United States Senate, and deservedly so.
Barack is so extreme that he used his position as a committee chairman when he served briefly in the Illinois Senate to block a bill that would have given the protection of the Fourteenth Amendment to babies born alive as a result of a botched abortion. Male or female, black or white, Hispanic or Asian-American, Barack wanted those babies DEAD.
So much for Barack's ideas of hope and helping those in need.
In the early 1930's another ambitious, charismatic, political Pied Piper, then in his forties and utterly lacking due regard for innocent human life, campaigned hard for change and became Germany's Fuehrer, because too many people did not pay close enough attention to what he really was.
The lessons of the Duke case about the dangers of political correctness and the black bloc vote have not been learned.
Despicable former Durham County, North Carolina Michael B. Nifong figured out that the only way to keep his job (he's been appointed as an interim district attorney) in a three-way Democrat primary race with a more popular white woman and a black man in heavily black Durham County was to pose as the champion of black women and try to frame three young white men from up north for raping, sexually assaulting and kidnapping a black stripper ex convict with a criminal record and a history of mental problem.
When it was reported that in Louisiana's Democrat presidential primary, Barack Hussein Obama had received about 90% of the black vote and 30% of the white vote, allowing him to win easily over Hillary Rodham Clinton in a battle of United States Senators, Geraldo Rivera was outraged that racism had tainted the voting.
Did Geraldo rave that black votes had unfairly sided overwhelmingly with a fellow black against Hillary Clinton?
Geraldo did not say a word about that.
Instead Geraldo ranted about Southern whites who gave the rookie Senator from Illinois who started running for president soon after he entered the United States Senate (if not soon after he entered kindergarten) only three out of ten of their votes.
That's THREE times the percentage of their votes that blacks gave Hillary, Geraldo.
The Clintons are known for many things, but being biased against blacks is not one of them.
Bill Clinton was called America's first black president, and not because he had black blood.
When either of the Clintons ran for office against white men, they took 80% to 90% of the black vote.
Now Hillary, running against a black for the first time, is getting 10% to 20% of the black vote (and in Democrat primaries that's a real problem for her).
How come Geraldo rebuked white voters for alleged racism, but not black ones?
The numbers surely suggest that racism is a bigger problems with blacks than whites.
Is it racist for a white to vote for a white, but not for a black to vote for a black, Geraldo?
Fortunately, the truth ultimately prevailed and Mr. Nifong, who is white (but not the false accuser, who is black) was even jailed (but only for a day).
Geraldo needs to take notice of some of the persons who won in Louisiana by playing the race card (aka pandering to the black bloc vote): blacks Mayor Ray Nagin and Congressman William "Cash in the Freezer" Jefferson, the top two elected officials in New Orleans (or, as Ray called it, "Chocolate Town").
Are there white voters who are biased against Barack?
Are there black voters who voted for Barack instead of Hillary because he's black and she's not?
Unfortunately for Hillary, of those voters, there were more (and another blonde, Ann Coulter, taking to the campaign trail for Hillary won't help with blacks biased against Hillary because she's white).
