Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin!

Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin:

What if the presidential candidates exchanged their “Life circumstances”?

Think about it.

Would the country’s collective point of view be different?

Ponder the following:

What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage,

including a three-month-old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage

daughter?

What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?

What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating

class?

What if McCain had only married once, and Obama was divorced?

What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after she was

severely disfigured in a car accident?

What if Obama had met his second wife at a cocktail party and had a long

affair while he was still married?

What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to

pain killers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable

organization?

What if Cindy McCain had graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?

(The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of

corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the

larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

What if Obama couldn’t read from a teleprompter?

What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included

discipline problems and a record of crashing several planes?

What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many

occasions, a serious anger management problem?

What if Michelle Obama’s family had made their money from beer

distribution?

What if the Obamas had adopted a white child?

You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected

reality, do you really believe the election numbers would be as close

as they are?

This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes

positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities

in another when there is a color difference.
