Well if Jessie Jackson gets his way…
To me this is just reinforces my belief that Barack Obama’s campaign will go down as the biggest flop in the history of modern day campaigns.
Already this year Obama has had to deal with comments his wife made about not being proud of being an American until her husbands run for President. Obama’s mentor and confidant Rev. Wright, shows us why Michelle Obama might feel that way after the American people see first hand Wright’s anti-American sermons. Now Jessie Jackson opens his trap and spews his frustrations about Obama.
The Obama campaign likes to insinuate that the McCain campaign, or Republican’s in general, are making race an issues in this election. That couldn’t be farther from the truth, it’s the people closest to Obama, his wife, his preacher, and Jessie Jackson who keep bringing it up. It seems to me he has a Chicago problem and the more incidents like this, the more likely his campaign will self implode.
When I listen to what Jessie Jackson I think he’s calling Obama an Uncle Tom. Now don’t believe for a second that this was the first time Jessie Jackson shared his true feeling about Obama. What do you think he is saying in private amongst friends?
Obama can draw large crowds and give a rousing speech, but when it comes to debates and staying on message he is terrible. Also while the American people are frustrated about high energy costs, he remains silent but pledges to increase fuel mileage in cars in the next 18 years.
