OBAMA'S MAMMA ~ Setting the record straight

Oh My Goodness! I just got a spam email from someone who obviously "thinks" that because I support McCain/Palin that I somehow hate Obama. They thought I would find This Video amusing. I do not.

I want to go on the record that I do not hate Obama. I do not agree with his stance on many, many issues but I do NOT hate him as a person. I respect him as a person and a man who is doing his best to live his life according to his beliefs.

I am not against Obama because he is black or because of where he came from.

Though I agree that Bristol Palin should not be a target of the media I also believe that Obama would NOT want the media to use her as a pawn in the political game.

There is none among us who got to choose our family. We CAN however, choose who we surround ourselves with in this lifetime. We can choose the family we wish to create and we can choose the path in life that will lead us off the path we were born upon. Obama has chosen wisely and I respect that.

This is not funny.

Please do not send me comments targeting Obama unfairly. His voting record is up for grabs but his family is not. Thank you.

I absolutely agree with you. I do not care for Obama....strictly because of his stance on issues! No other reason than that. I also agree....families should be left out of the picture. Lok at their records and issues...vote accordingly.

I totally agree. Leave the families out of it. Talk about mean-spiritedness (on both sides).

I believe the vast majority of Americans is repulsed by this sort of thing.

Thank you. I love your blog and was somewhat disappointed when I read further and saw that you did not support Obama on the issues. However, your remarks here reflect your quality and character much more than your vote. I did not watch what was sent to you, no need to spread the ugly KWIM? But I wanted to say thank you for having integrity and also for this lovely resource! Your sister in Christ...

OMG!!! I saw the video and at first I had to be sure that I had the right video because it didn't appear that it was going to be anything negative...well, THEN....all I can say is OMG!!! Un-beee-leeeev-able!

I think what struck me most was the passionate way in which he judges Obama and his "mamma". This comment may appear naive or something, but I can't believe that a black man would feel so strongly about it. That just shocks me. Can you imagine the press he would get on CNN and MSNBC if he were white???
