Interesting.....A Clinton claiming an opposing candidate using the "race card." Remember Hillary is married to the man who and others claimed was the "first black President."

The following was paste from the website:
http://camelsnose.wordpress.com/2007/02/18/is...

Here are their points, written by a committee back in 1981:

Commitment to God
Commitment to the Black Community
Commitment to the Black Family
Dedication to the Pursuit of Education
Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence
Adherence to the Black Work Ethic
Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect
Disavowal of the Pursuit of “Middleclassness”
Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the Black Community
Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions
Pledge allegiance to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System
Personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System.
An article at the oddly misnamed blog Sweetness & Light calls the church “Afro-centric, racist and Bush-hating”, and suggests that the church is “not your everyday Christian parish”. The writer intentionally misspells Obama’s name as “Osama”, so you kind of know where they’re coming from. Anonymous commenters fill in the picture even further:

That’s cute, the way the author capitalizes Black, but leaves white lower case.

Since they’ve “discredited” the story about Obama being a Muslim, they can now demonstrate what a “real Christian” he is today and highlight some of these beliefs. Obama is a racist pig. This “church” is nothing but a bunch of psychotic and intolerant kooks.

Did you notice that this “Church” is just the black Muslim cult with a name change?

If Obama indeed buys into this church’s philosophy, we have a blatantly racist presidential front runner whose first allegiance is to Africa.

Looking for salvation? White people need not apply.

I looked at the website and it stresses the Afro-centrism. CAN OBAMA SERVE A COUNTRY THAT IS NOT ALL BLACK?

If I belonged to a church that was White-centric questions would be raised about my ability to serve ALL the people!

This outrageous statement is a prime example of why the Clintons should never see the inside of the White House again except as tourists. There will simply be no end to the baggage of Bill's presidency if she gets elected.

This is all so much liberal, pandemic puke. The super delegates are in the bag for Queen Hildebeast and she will be handed the Dem nomination on a silver platter for her expected coronation. Wait and see. Thanks.

Who is she to pick on anyone about foreign policy?

She's only taken flowers from Children then then lied saying she was under sniper fire during the flower ceremony or then we find she helped turn on Christmas lights in Ireland but then was caught in a lie saying she helped on a peace initiative.

What a joker! The Dem party has screwed us over with this candidate.

Clinton's recent commentary and poor conduct during this week's debate are just continued examples as to why many Democrats are now saying that they will "hold their noses" and vote Republican if she wins the nomination.

The July 31 cocktail reception outside Palo Alto, Calif., had been billed as an evening for letting bygones be bygones, a coming together of Hillary Clinton's Silicon Valley backers with Barack Obama's to help the New York Senator retire her campaign debt.

But as Clinton took questions from the 150 or so people who had paid $500 and up a head to listen, it became clear that the healing process was far from over. "For so many of my supporters, just like so many of Barack's supporters, this was a first-time investment of heart and soul and money and effort and sleepless nights and miles of travel," Clinton said. "You just don't turn it off like that."

Those comments — now playing in clips on YouTube—speak to not only the bruised feelings of Clinton's many supporters. Embedded in those remarks, say friends and advisers, are hints of Clinton's own feelings in the aftermath of a race in which she fought so hard and still fell short. In public, Clinton is doing everything she is asked — and then some — to help the man who defeated her get elected to the White House.

She raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Obama from her extensive network of donors and has spoken to many of the groups, including key unions, that backed her in the primaries. She is set to hit the campaign trail on his behalf, starting with rallies and voter-registration drives this month in Nevada and Florida. "I'm doing all I know to do," she insists.

But behind the united front, says an adviser, "it's not a great relationship, and it's probably not going to become one." In private conversations, associates say, Clinton remains skeptical that Obama can win in the fall.

She acknowledged Obama briefly, as a candidate but not as the nominee, then proceeded to a paean to her working-class supporters ... and to herself. "In the millions of quiet moments, in thousands of places, you asked yourself a simple question: Who will be the strongest candidate and the strongest President?" she said, and then repeated the dubious claim that she had "won" the popular vote.

She may have considered this the opening salvo in a tough round of negotiation with Obama about her place in the party and perhaps on the ticket, but it came across as yet another demonstration of her ill-concealed belief that Obama would be a defective and ultimately unsuccessful general-election candidate.

Obama, who entered the primary as a fresh breeze and left it stale, battered and embittered — still the mathematical favorite for the nomination but no longer the darling of his party.

In the course of six weeks, the American people learned that he was a member of a church whose pastor gave angry, anti-American sermons, that he was "friendly" with an American terrorist who had bombed buildings during the Vietnam era, and that he seemed to look on the ceremonies of working-class life — bowling, hunting, churchgoing and the fervent consumption of greasy food — as his anthropologist mother might have, with a mixture of cool detachment and utter bemusement.

All of which deepened the skepticism that Caucasians, especially those without a college degree, had about a young, inexperienced African-American guy with an Islamic-sounding name and a highfalutin fluency with language.

And worse, it raised questions among the elders of the party about Obama's ability to hold on to crucial Rust Belt bastions like Pennsylvania, Michigan and New Jersey in the general election — and to add long-suffering Ohio to the Democratic column.

http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,859...

...The audacity of the Obama campaign was the belief that in a time of trouble — as opposed to the peace and prosperity of the late 20th century — the low-information politics of the past could be tossed aside in favor of a high-minded, if deliberately vague, appeal to the nation's need to finally address some huge problems.

But that assumption hit a wall in Pennsylvania. Specifically, it hit a wall at the debate staged by ABC News in Philadelphia — viewed by an audience of 10 million, including a disproportionate number of Pennsylvanians — that will go down in history for the relentless vulgarity of its questions, with the first 40 minutes focused exclusively on so-called character issues rather than policy. Obama was on the defensive from the start, but gradually the defensiveness morphed into bitter frustration...

CAN AMERICA TRUST JOHN MCCAIN-BUSH?
The McCain Myth of Experience
By MiddleChild - June 14, 2008, 6:06PM
John McCain is running for President on his one great asset, his experience and strength in military and foreign affairs. My question is, what experience, what strength? This is a man who graduated third from the bottom of his class of almost 900 students, crashed 5 planes, flew only 21 hours before he was captured and that is it. He has no military command experience, never lead any troops, and cannot even get the factions in Iraq straight when he has been corrected over and over. The only experience this man has is D.C., and that is exactly what we do not want. I want intelligence, fresh ideas, and promises kept. Senator McCain cannot even operate a computer by his own admission, but we are to trust him running our country in a global economy? The McCain who ran in 2000 is not the McCain running now. He has lost his edge, he seems at times to run off the track and he certainly is not grasping basic facts about the war. He is NOT experienced, he is just another rerun. I want a new show.

If Bush and McCaine lied then so did clinton, biden, Gore and on and on and on. They all supported military action against Iraq way before Bush was even in office. Bush just ahd the balls to defend our country unlike the pussy democrats. You can say one thing about Bush. He just doesn't give lip service. He acts on his words. Your new show will be a Horror show if obuma is elected. This country will be driven into mass chaos.

What else would you expect Clinton to say.. If the Clinton's went public on what they really think of Obama .. Hillery wouldn't get her debts paid off .. It's funny that during the primarys all his competion called him everything short of an idiot .. And all well placed opinions ..But now he's their man .. Even Biden has a had a hard time reversing his statmentsabout Obamas lack of experiance .. And it wouldn't surprise me if Biden Dumps Obama before the election .. It would be hard to ride 2nd seat to that idiot ..

She says Obama will win? GOOD. She also said she would win. Was she right about that? Nope. Thankfully she can go be a do-nothing senator from New Yawk again where those losers can elect her again and again and again.
