Another Reason to Despise Obama

If you're looking for yet another reason (or maybe it's just another example of one of the same old reasons) to dislike Barack Obama, then you need look no further than his comments on the debate over the recent amnesty bill to the annual conference of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials on June 30, 2007. To quote this article:
Barack Obama, for example, said there was "an ugly overtone" in the debate, which he said was absent from the debate over the same bill last year, and accused opponents of using "the politics of fear."
Barack is nothing but a pathetic race-baiter and hyperbolist. It was not fear, nor hate, that motivated the public against this awful piece of legislation; it was outrage and frustration. What could be more ugly than implying that people are racist, or "ugly," for attempting to defend this nation and the rule of law? Unlike Obama, who seems only able to view people as homogeneous groups rather than as individuals, opponents of this bill were quite able to distinguish between Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, as well as between American-born Hispanics, legal immigrants and illegal immigrants. Over and over, idiots like Obama play the race card, for personal gain, and then wonder why people are so fed up with their policies and accusations. Who is playing on the "politics of fear," if not you, Obama, trying to motivate people to vote for you by painting a distorted picture of the "other guy" as hate-mongering bigots?

Joe Biden, who doesn't have a snowball's chance in Death Valley of gaining his party's nomination, was even worse - or at least more desperate:
Joe Biden told conference attendees the debate over immigration "has become a race to the bottom - who can be the most anti-Hispanic."
Moron. Being anti-illegal alien is not in any way, shape or form the same as being "anti-Hispanic." The former is a stance toward criminal behavior and foreign invasion, while the latter is racist.
