So, if the only reason Colin Powell and every other black person in America is backing Obama is because he is black, it's fair game for me to say that the only reason every white person is supporting McCain is because they are racist. Right?
After delivering a sound and thoughtful 6 minute speech on why he was supporting Obama, it should come as no surprise that certain segments of America are completely ignoring that and saying Powell is supporting Obama just because he is black. That is, of course, absurd. Powell is merely saying aloud what a lot of conservatives really think about McCain and his actions.
It is far past time for the Republicans to stop all the smears and focus on getting their party back on the right track. It is also far past time for America to reject the out and out hatred spewed by some of these talk radio personalities. They are only widening the divide in our country.
