Lib EJ Dione on The Obama Riddle:

Yet it's undeniable that racism lurks beneath so many of the preposterously false charges against him...

Actually racism is the reason he was elected.

What are his other qualifications, besides his epidermis? 


  1. “What are his other qualifications, besides his epidermis?”

    That’s a racist statement right there.


    1. @KW:

      No, it's the opposite of racism. I assert that his qualifications other than race are what ought to matter.

      What exactly are those non-racial qualifications, that accounted for his political rise? Executive experience? (none). Experience in the private sector? (none) Legislative experience (trivial-- he was an Illinois legislator, and did little in his brief stint in the US Senate, when he ran for president). Academic experience? (he was an instructor at the U of C-- basically a courtesy title, and he taught an occasional course) Can you refer me to the law journal papers he authored?

      What exactly, besides his race, were his qualifications for the presidency?

      I can't wait to see KW's answer.

      At any rate, Barack Obama authored no law review papers on substantive matters of law(as you already knew, hence the rhetorical question).

      But Barack Obama did write a letter to the The Record, which was accepted for publication by Barack Obama. It was a reflection (one might even say a navel-gazing disquisition without being accused of being too far off the mark) of his personal experience with affirmative action, a program based on epidermal pigmentation (except in hardship cases like Elizabeth "Lieawatha" Warren).

      I quote from that letter:
      I must say, however, that as someone who has undoubtedly benefited from affirmative action programs during my academic career, and as someone who may have benefited from the Law Review’s affirmative action policy when I was selected to join the Review last year, I have not personally felt stigmatized...

      So, apparently, it is KW who is the racist, since he seems to feel an acute sense of stigmatization when making decisions based on explicitly racial criteria; i.e., affirmative action.

    3. "So, apparently, it is KW who is the racist ..."

      ... because he's a leftist.

  2. If the charges were indeed so preposterously false, leftists wouldn't need to deploy the Race Card.
