Why Isn’t Obama Campaign Focused on Steve King?

Why Isn’t Obama Campaign Focused on Steve King? updated

Mock outrage, that’s what this Geraldine
Ferraro flap
is all about.

Ferraro, the Democratic Party’s vice presidential nominee in 1984,
told the (Torrance, California) Daily Breeze that “If Obama was a white
man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman he would not
be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the
country is caught up in the concept.”

But could the timing have been worse, right before the Mississippi primary?

I’ll let you dissect the delirium, because I’m officially disgusted today.
Between Orlando
Patterson’s offensively racist op-ed
, which gets the salient point wrong,
now this witch hunt on Ferraro, we’re clearly chasing our historical tails.
Clinton was getting the African American vote until blacks were convinced Obama
could get the white vote. Why are AA voting for Obama now? Identity politics.
As for a woman with Obama’s experience and at his age, she would never be considered
for commander in chief. Who are we kidding?

As for white men, they always win, so I don’t know what the hell Ferraro is
talking about on that one.

But political correctness has run amok, but on one side only. Ferraro gets
shellacked. But Obama, playing the “hoodwink” card, gets a pass.
You explain it.

Let’s also be clear. I remember Ferraro and the only way she was on the ticket
was because she was a woman. So let’s not kid each other on that one either.

You following this Democratic tail chasing? To add, Ferrarro defends herself today, because to be part of the 2008 Democratic primary season means having to say you’re sorry.

But if the Obama campaign and his supporters had any political compass at all they’d be focused
on King’s comments instead, which are far worse than what Ferraro said. I guess hitting Republicans isn’t what it used to be. The
truth is, this is about getting even for Samantha Power. The Obama camp wants
a requisite political scalp and only a top Clinton supporter will do.
