Monday afternoon, state Representatives Bob Hagan of Youngstown and Tom Letson of Warren met with reporters.Oh, and if, heaven forbid, you do not bow to the "Chosen One" you are un-American as well.
They argue many voters who call themselves "Democrats" or "Independents", but won't vote for Obama, have only one excuse, with Letson saying, "I would say that a lot of it is they're not going to vote for 'the black guy'".
Hagan called the issue "unpatriotic," adding those not willing to vote for Obama need "to face that fact. That that's not acceptable in America." (source)
So what is there point? There point is simply tow parts.
First is to play the race card in order to snap Democrats in line and to do what they are told (Do not dare defy the Chosen One). Secondly they are setting it up so that if and when Obama loses, they can blame racism, not an inexperienced first term Senator that the DNC pushed past Hillary Clinton... You know, the one who actually won the primaries.
Now don’t get me wrong. I am glad that the primary was not given to Hillary, but to act as if the Democratic Party has always been behind Obama (or is totally now) is foolish and just plain stupid… as was the decision to ignore almost half of the Democratic party and NOT chose Clinton as the VP running mate.
