Say it ain’t so. Don’t tell me the 2008 Democratic Primaries are over. I loved watching the black man and the white woman fight it out.

I’m just being funny.

I have such mixed feelings about this. I never thought the white people would actually back Barack Obama enough for him to defeat Hillary Clinton. You think I’m going to say because he is black right? Wrong.

I thought it would take more substance. I’ve watched Barack Obama speak numerous times. I just don’t now what change he’s going to bring.

What I do know? He plans on raising taxes for those who make over $75,000, because they are considered rich. I live in Northern Virginia and that’s just enough to get you by. That doesn’t allow for savings, investment, hell even a vacation. That’s not change I can believe in.

I know, he wants to pull the troops out of Iraq. We haven’t been attacked since 9/11 and I think that’s been accomplished because we created a new battle field. We now also have the means to collect more intellegence. He speaks of the soldiers that lose their lives defending us. It took 2 hours to cause more American deaths than five years in Iraq, and how long has it been since he went to Iraq to see those troops. He speaks of the cost of the war. How many attacks here before our economy is non-existant? That’s not change I can believe in.

What I don’t hear. How do you plan on helping the black community? What we need most is a Black Man with a message that we can do anything. Instead we get a Black Man that sat in a church that wants us to be victims. You are the first Black American to represent any party as a serious candidate for President. How can you not denounce Rev. Wright?

According to his logic, you shouldn’t be where you are. There is a little black boy sitting in that church developing a train of thought that the world owes him something. The world didn’t owe you anything. You worked and sacrified for it. Where is that message?

I love words, as you know. Sometimes though, you have to realize that words are just words if they aren’t backed by ideas, personal conviction, a history of action, and a true belief in their meaning.

I’m proud of the country that Rev. Wright damned. It gave Barack Obama a chance against all odds, (the Clintons).

I wonder how will you change the American family enough to begin fixing our communities and schools. I don’t think it will happen with more welfare benefits. How can you teach your children to work hard if you sit at home and collect a check.

My main point, Barack Obama. Don’t try to give us so much, that you don’t give us what you know. You know the importance of hard work. You know it isn’t easy. I want to hear that. I don’t want to hear slavery existed once and that’s the root of our problems. It’s not. We do more to hurt ourselves than any racist could ever do.

Come out and tell young black men to put down the guns. Don’t be afraid to point them out. You know they exist. You know how they’re hurting us. Not just blacks, but us all. If we cleaned our communities and opened businesses it would affect the entire country. It would lower the number of families without health care. It would raise the High School graduation rate and college admissions of minorities with no need for Affirmative Action. It would give people the resources to save for their own futures and Social Security wouldn’t be a ticking time bomb.

Politics will always be politics. Barack Obama is a politician. Let me repeat, BARACK OBAMA is a POLITICIAN.

There is no if’s, and’s or but’s about it. He wanted political associations so he joined Trinity. He left Trinity when it’s negatives outweighed his positives. That’s a politician.

So I’m happy for you. You ran a good race even though Hillary Clinton dominated in soooooo many states. I can’t be serious here. If it were any other candidate the things that went on in Trinity, the affliations with William Aires, not to mention a real lack of real experience, would’ve left a campaign deflated.

For some reason the have exhalted Barack Obama as the Great Black Hope. I just hope he doesn’t make it to the White House.
