Obama will talk to terrorists but not our generals

Vets for Freedom released the following web ad today asking why Senator Obama won’t make time to meet with combat vets from his own home state but will meet with the President of Iran with no preconditions.

Check it out here:

Obama 57 State Slip

Hey, folks, Want to participate in tweaking the Drive-By Media? You are aware, probably, that Barack Obama lost his bearings recently and said that he was going to campaign in all 57 states. You heard this? And everybody chalked it up to, "Well, he's tired."
You know, this is a Dan Quayle moment. I mean, Dan Quayle goes out there and misspells "potato," and we still hear jokes about it. Barack Obama says he's gonna go out and campaign in 57 states, he was just tired, you know, it's been such a long campaign, he's been so many places, he probably thinks there are 57 states.
Well, I have here a printout from a website called the International Humanist and Ethical Union. And here is how the second paragraph of an article on that website begins. "Every year from 1999 to 2005 the organization
of the Islamic conference representing the 57 Islamic states presented a resolution to the United Nations commission on human rights called combating."

We're participating here in a tweak of the media. Obama said he's going to campaign in 57 states, and it turns out that there are 57 Islamic states. There are 57 Islamic states. "Every year from 1999 to 2005, the organization of the Islamic conference representing the 57 Islamic states," this is from the International Humanist and Ethical Union. And the title of the piece here is, "How the Islamic states dominate the UN human rights council," and there are 57 of them.
So did Obama just lose his bearings, or was this a more telling slip, ladies and gentlemen?

Understanding Obama & Race Politics

I have compiled a list of some insightful writings that expose a common theme:

Dr. Shelby Steele on Obama & Race

Mascot Politics

Obama the Magic Negro - LA Times

Obama the Magic Negro - LA Times

Read Obama the 'Magic Negro' written in the LA Times.

The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture, coined by snarky 20th century sociologists, to explain a cultural figure who emerged in the wake of Brown vs. Board of Education. "He has no past, he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist," reads the description on Wikipedia .
He's there to assuage white "guilt" (i.e., the minimal discomfort they feel) over the role of slavery and racial segregation in American history, while replacing stereotypes of a dangerous, highly sexualized black man with a benign figure for whom interracial sexual congress holds no interest.

Mascot Politics

Read Mascot Politics By Dr. Thomas Sowell, an African American Academic, to begin to understand how race plays in politics.

Morning Edition, July 12, 2007 · Army Maj. Gen. Mark Hertling, commander of the 1st Armored Division, which is soon to deploy to Iraq, has two sons who are Army officers and have served in Iraq. Hertling says many in the military are recognizing, if not resenting, a growing imbalance of sacrifice in the war in Iraq.


"We feel like we are an Army at War not a Nation at War"

"It's very nice to for people to say they support the troops. But we sometimes we just don't see the action being backed up by the words.
