The Mickster deconstructs Obama's Sermon on Racism here, listing several problems with it. Commenter "fhdpjosc" offers this followup:
[Obama's] rhetoric is very carefully crafted to appeal to two different audiences: black and white.
... running for Congress - invited Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain to his city to have a debate of some kind, saying in part:
If you are interested in addressing the issue of illegal immigration, then you must come to our city to hear our stories and learn how cooperation and effective leadership can work to correct the problem and how outside forces -- primarily in Washingt
... as it relates to criticism of Barack Obama. Their foxattacks.com/virus page makes it clear that, if Greenwald had his way, Fox would be off the air:
Fox is a Republican mouthpiece, not a legitimate news organization.
... clip from earlier that day of Barack Obama lying about Dobb's position on deportations (transcript link, video link):
When I hear Rush Limbaugh or you know Lou Dobbs or some of these people talking about how we need to send them all back. We're not going to send them all back. First of all, this is a country of immigrants.
... just some of the reasons why Barack Obama supporters should vote for Lim Guan Eng instead:
1. Just like Obama, Lim Guan Eng is the candidate of change.
2. The Democratic Party is truly an international party, and, just as foreign citizens have every right to vote in U.S. elections, Democrats have every right to vote in Malaysia's elections too.
3. Lim's party, the Democratic Action Party, is...

...and several more.
After a bit of a warm-up and a to-be-expected concern about racial profiling, here's the relevant bits:
...(5) ...In the wake of the Hoffman decision [Hoffman Plastic Compounds Inc. v. NLRB, 535 U.S. 137 (2002)], defendant...
As previously discussed, Barack Obama senior economic policy advisor Austan Goolsbee discussed the candidate's position on NAFTA with Canadian government officials, supposedly letting them know that his anti-NAFTA statements were simply political posturing. Now, a Canadian government memo on the meeting has been released, despite previous denials of such a meeting having taken place. A roundup of...
... will.i.am video in support of Barack Obama, you know, the really creepy one with the chanting and the braindead celebrities like Jessica Alba and others I have no hope of identifying telling us how Obama's going to save the environment and bring world peace just before he brings all of us a pony and a shiny new bicycle.
... Shorenstein is complaining about pro-Barack Obama bias by the MSM. Beth Fouhy of the Associated Press writes (link):
..."I am absolutely outraged with the media coverage of the presidential campaign," Shorenstein wrote in the memo, which was obtained by The Associated Press.
... George Lopez brought U.S. Sen. Barack Obama's message of hope and change Wednesday afternoon to an estimated 1,200 potential young voters at the University of Texas at El Paso.
"It is the time of the Latino, your time to step up, your time to take this country over," Lopez said, eliciting applause.
... senior representative of the Barack Obama campaign called Canada's ambassador to the U.S. and informed him that, despite any anti-NAFTA statements Obama might make, it would all just be bluster and he wouldn't really mean it.
... debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will be a disgrace. Some part of that is due to the fact that one of the questioners is Jorge Ramos of Univision. He's not only a supporter of cultural separatism, he's not a citizen - by choice - despite having lived here for over a decade. And, if any immigration questions are asked they'll be meaningless: everyone on stage is on the same side....
... (link), supposedly written by Barack Obama himself. It contains two phrases with "prosperity" and "security" together in relation to North America and even the use of "partnership" at the end. Those three words are also in the name of a government effort called the Security and Prosperity Partnership (spp.gov), something that may be a precursor to a North American Union. Given the use of those...

... Johnson with this warning about Barack Obama's links to three questionable figures: Tony Rezko, William Ayers, and Rashid Khalidi. The first will go on trial later this month, the second is a self-admitted terrorist, the third an alleged "PLO activist".
Earlier this month, the New York Times offered "Nuclear leaks, response tested Obama in Senate". Nuclear plants run by Exelon Corporation in...
... (via this). Bearing in mind that Barack Obama was a University of Chicago lecturer in constitutional law for several years (link), let's see if he has a firm grasp of the Constitution:
Obama took questions from the audience for more than half an hour. One person wanted to know what he would do about "anchor babies," the term for children of illegal immigrants who are automatically made citizens...
... Democrats (and some Republicans), Barack Obama's campaign features group identities as one of the key features of their outreach, and that can be seen in the "People" menu at their site. For instance, Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders have their very own special page at aapi.barackobama.com. Americans Abroad, you're special too: abroad.barackobama.com.
... presidential candidate and Senator Barack Obama, is up for a Senate vote on Thursday and could result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States. The bill, which has the support of many liberal religious groups, makes levels of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations.
...The legislation would commit the U.S.
... Democratic candidate (whether Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton) on their immigration positions?
The answer clearly is yes: the GOP leadership - just like the Democratic leadership - supports illegal immigration. Certainly, some 527 groups which are to some extent only nominally unaffiliated with the GOP may decide to press the issue, but the parties and the candidates won't.
At tonight's CNN/Politico/Los Angeles Times Democratic "debate" (link), per lightweight illegal immigration supporter Marc Cooper (link):
The candidates also cautiously sparred on the potentially explosive issue of immigration with Obama rejecting a moderator's question that assumed that African-Americans were suffering because of illegal immigration.
... Chronicle offers this:
Sen. Barack Obama easily won the African American vote in South Carolina, but to woo California Latinos, where he is running 3-to-1 behind rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, he is taking a giant risk: spotlighting his support for the red-hot issue of granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.
It's a huge issue for Latinos, who want them. It's also a huge issue...
Is Barack Obama a Muslim who practices Islam and who attended a madrassa (madrasa) in Indonesia? Despite whatever emails you might have received, it appears that the answer to that is no. According to him, he's a "committed Christian" (link). His church is the Trinity United Church of Christ, whose pastor has made some rather questionable statements.
However, according to this:
One-sixteenth of a cheer for Barack Obama! For, back in 2006 he voted for an amendment that would prevent the federal government from spending any money on gun confiscation during a declared state of emergency. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton voted against it (i.e., on the gun grabbing side).
Details on the amendment that was added to HR 5441 here.
... supporting various candidates such as Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee, and occasionally others. Now, certainly, many or most of those supporters might not be socks, but it's awful strange to find at least three white women around 50 years of age who suddenly showed up at a thread by Atlantic blogger Marc Ambinder about a Barack Obama speech and identified themselves by their race, gender, and age...
Does Barack Obama belong to an anti-white, far-left church? Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ certainly appears to have made some interesting statements (link, link, link). The last includes excerpts from Obama's book.
Yet another Democratic debate was held yesterday on MSNBC, featuring Brian Williams and Tim Russert as moderators (transcript link). It was as ripped-from-the-Soviet-archives as we've come to expect from such debates, only this featured even more questions solely about process and horserace and even fewer about issues. It also featured three extremely lightweight questions about immigration, with...
... Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama tour the countryside telling prospective voters just how bad things are, some people in Capitol City are living it up: those lucky few who get to dine at the U.S. House of Representatives' own eating establishments. Thanks to Nancy Pelosi's "Greening the Capitol" plan (link), plucky leftwingers can fight for peace and freedom while dining on such...
... Union, which recently endorsed Barack Obama. And, she showed that, despite being a lawyer, she doesn't understand or support our immigration laws. She also campaigned to people who aren't citizens and might be illegal aliens.
At the end of the article about the Iowa Interfaith Immigration Coalition there's this:
Following the news conference, held at the First Christian Church near Drake University in Des Moines, teams visited the offices of Democratic and Republican candidates, delivering copies of the petition... Most of the Democratic contenders were engaged in a debate sponsored by National Public Radio. One group...
Do I need to add that if Barack Obama had said the same thing even many "liberals" would consider him a racist?
Then, asked an apparently weak question by Ray Suarez about driver's licenses for illegal aliens, Hillary responded again with a call to pass "comprehensive immigration reform". She could save herself from saying the same thing over and over by just holding up a sign.
The following video describes how CNN failed to note the material affiliations of some of the audience members who asked questions at Thursday's Democratic debate. And, one of the audience questions included an outrageous lie.
