Even Obama recognized that tagging his own grandmother as a racist before the nation was problematic. And so he justified himself by tagging every white person in America as a secret racist. "The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't." Obama said after his speech. "But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know there's a reaction that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that's just the nature of race in our society."

Lest we forget, in this quote Obama is indicting all of white America because he was caught in a church run by a lunatic, who essentially believes American whites are responsible for every ill that has befallen the world in his lifetime.

Which begs the question: If Obama is truly an opponent of Wright's bigotry, why does he reflect that same bigotry in condemning all of white America for its inherent racism? Why does he see racism in the woman who raised him? Why doesn't he simply disassociate from Wright?

Either Obama is a disciple of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr.'s extremism -- in which case, his defense of Wright makes sense -- or he is one of the most ambitious, sleazy, manipulative politicians in the history of presidential politics. Either way, he doesn't deserve to be president.
