More Racist Obama Products

On June 17, 2008 By

I think Jesse was right when he said by November you could dedicate a blog to this shit. Right now I’m gonna bet the under. The Texas Republican State Convention already gave us one racist nugget. Now comes the button:

At the Republican state convention, a booth hosted by Republicanmarket was selling a pin Saturday that says: If Obama is President will we still call it the White House?

Lovely. The company who is supposed to have made the buttons and sold them at their booth,, doesn’t appear to have any at their online store. […]

The Wall Street Journal has a good article online with selected portions of a Q&A with Obama that shed some light on his plans for his Presidency, and how he plans to go about business.

WSJ: I wanted to talk about long-term economic growth, sort of following on your speech. I noticed that in an interesting way you use Lincoln, FDR and JFK, heroes in many ways. Maybe you can talk to me a little bit about your view of the government’s role in economic growth.

Sen. Obama: This dates back even further, to Alexander Hamilton. The strength of our […]

Obama leads by equal margins among men and women, and has a four point lead with white voters while also holding a dominant 75-21 advantage with African Americans.

“Barack Obama appears to be enjoying a strong unity bounce in Ohio,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “He begins the general election campaign in a strong position in the state, and Ohio is one place where putting Senator Clinton on the ticket seems likely to give […]

We all know it. You know it. I know it. The operative campaign current running through the McCain for President campaign is racism.

But it sure is surprising to hear people just come on out and say it:

A few delegates can’t stomach McCain.

Delegate Gregory Banville of Houston, a supporter of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul for president, plans to vote for Libertarian Party nominee Bob Barr, a former U.S. House member.

Banville called McCain weak, saying, “I don’t see how he has a chance at all unless people vote only because they don’t like black people.”

If you remember back in February Mr. Sinclair actually failed a polygraph test related to his accusations.

Today – the group responsible for Sinclair’s polygraph test – has announced that they will also hold a press conference at the National Press Club immediately after Sinclair’s…

At the press conference, will describe how, in February […]
