Still Waiting . . .

Some of the MSM covering the Jackson-Obama brouhaha have speculated that it might help Barack to be criticized by Jackson "for talking down to black people."

But as I noted last night, in fact, Barack is nothing if not an equal-opportunity condescender -- he looks down on Americans of all color.

And I'm still waiting for someone to take me up on my challenge: Find one policy area -- just one -- where Barack differs, not in his words, but in his record, from the policies Jesse Jackson espouses.  It's going to be hard to do.  As Hugh Hewitt notes below, Barack is a radical.

There's not a dime's worth of daylight between Jackson and Obama when it comes to policy, and everything else is just a semantic kerfuffle about words and rhetorical emphasis.  No one who thinks Jesse Jackson is too left to be president has any business voting for Barack.
 
For that matter, nor does anyone who finds Senators Ted Kennedy of MA, Bernie Sanders of VT (who describes himself as a socialist) and Barbara Boxer of CA too liberal.  After all, Barack had the most liberal voting record of anyone in the US Senate in 2007 -- and that includes Kennedy, Sanders and Boxer.
