american viewpoint

"I have to confess, though, that I got water thrown all over my enthusiasm when I engaged some students after class. They were about to take issue with me over the Obama speech...they did not see it as great or eloquent, but a crafty apologia for anti-Americanism and racism."

Most conservatives have the same reactions as these history students. They cannot see through the eyes of anybody but themselves. But selfishness has always been a hallmark of conservatism.

But yet, none of these kids care that a pastor endorsing McCain called Catholics "whores?"

Sarah is spot on, except "he did it first!" was supposed to have ended in secon grade, no offense meant to Sarah.

I just wrote a post on the subject. Just one question: If Wright's comments were so bad Oblahma has to condemn them....how about the twenty years worth of the same stuff from the same guy every Sunday. that Oblahma never said a word about?

Hypocrite is the polite word.

Hmmm. Okay, let's put aside the fact that every single Religious nut is, ahem, a relgious nut. Sarah made no such reference as to who did it first- just that McCain, (not to mention Hillary) as well as Barack ALL have ties to nutty christian clerics. And no one seems concerned except about the Black one.

TFWY: I want to know what exact part of Barack's speech was hypocrisy, because he was pretty straightforward. I think it's ludicrous to expect members of a church to be critiquing their pastors/priests/rabbis publicly.
