On Sept. 16, 2008, CNN’s Jack Cafferty thought the differences between Sen. John McCain and then-Sen. Barack Obama were so clear, the only reason the election could be so close was racism. Is Cafferty a racist since he just went off on Obama for breaking promises we knew he would not keep?
Of course not, but in Cafferty’s world, he seems to be able to make the jump.
Cafferty blew his stack today, all bothered about President Obama breaking the “we’ll broadcast everything on CSPAN” comment, and the fact House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) are hiding from the public as they do a mash-up of the health care bill outside of public view, bypassing the normal Congressional workflow.
Here’s Cafferty’s full post on his CNN Political Ticker blog entry.
Race is arguably the biggest issue in this election, and it’s one that nobody’s talking about.
The differences between Barack Obama and John McCain couldn’t be more well-defined. Obama wants to change Washington. McCain is a part of Washington and a part of the Bush legacy. Yet the polls remain close. Doesn’t make sense…unless it’s race.
You. Are. An. Idiot.
It has nothing to do with race you fool. It’s conservative versus liberal policies. But everything has to be about race to these clowns. Now, if Cafferty stated McCain and Obama were basically the same (professional politicians …) that may be different, but he was clear … it was race to him.
