For Conservatives – Race Not an Issue

But it certainly always is for liberals and most Democrats.

Rendell: Race Factor Could Hurt Obama
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Ed Rendell, one of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s most visible supporters, said some white Pennsylvanians are likely to vote against her rival Barack Obama because he is black.

“You’ve got conservative whites here, and I think there are some whites who are probably not ready to vote for an African-American candidate,” Rendell told the editorial board of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in remarks that appeared in Tuesday’s paper.

Bill Clinton must have made a call: “Hey Ed, since I can’t attack Obama anymore, I’m going to need to to remind everyone that Obama is black. And while your doing that, why not let people know that whites probably won’t vote for him either.”

If that isn’t racism, I’m not sure what is.

I won’t vote for Obama specifically because he’s a liberal populist. I can list many reasons I do not think he is qualified to represent me as president, and not one of them has to do with race. The white folk in Pennsylvania should be outraged.
