Playing the wrong card

In reference to health care reform legislation, an Obama supporter recently said, “All of this has raised its ugly head because Obama is a black man, so pull your heads out of the sand and admit the truth.”

This kind of Obama supporter is losing the information war.

The truth is coming out loud and clear each week as more people find out what is hidden in the legislation. Playing the race card is a cheap shot. It is the trade mark of those who can’t handle the truth and not must resort to this kind of racist remark. This will not work today or in the 2010-2012 elections.

President Obama has spoken out against his supporters using these kind of remarks. One would be wise to listen to their leader.

Now, if you don’t like what I have said and want to punch something—punch a ballot?

If you like what I have said—punch a ballot and encourage your family and friends to punch a ballot!

We have a competent and efficient Board of Elections and Registration and trained poll workers waiting to serve you a ballot in November. Make your vote count for you and especially for children and grandchildren’s future.
