“I am staying in this race until there’s a  nominee.  I’m going to work hard as I can  to become that nominee. --Ms. Hillary Clinton

 

Here are other “Quotable Quotes,” as heard on the campaign television coverage:

I don’t think he’s (B. HUSSEIN Obama)

 qualified and when the cream comes to the

 surface …  if he’s elected President, I think

he’s going to be a disappointment." --A North Carolina voter

 

 

I can’t stand him.  He’s a Muslim.  He’s

not even pro-American as far I am

concerned."  --An Indiana voter

 

First, the good news.  A very exciting good news that I wanna share with y’all.  It’s about my son, Chris.  Well, perhaps to others, it won’t be that good of a news.  To them, I say: Hey, eat your BITTER, sour hearts out!  Yes, indeed, I’ve got something to brag about my son … again.

 

  Again?  Yes, again.

 

This time, Chris, a reporter/weekend anchor for CBS 5 (KGWN) in Cheyenne, Wyoming has won first place this year’s “BEST ANCHOR” award, given by the Wyoming Association of Broadcasters.  Last year, if I may say so, he won two awards: one for “Best News” … and the other, for “Best Breaking News.”  KGWN covers Southeast Wyoming, Northern Colorado and the Nebraska Panhandle.

 For those doubters, to see is to believe, right?  Punch in www.kgwn.tv on your screen, and then click on the slot that reads “meet the team.”  To see him report, punch some of the videos that he had reported.  To see him anchor, punch the videos on late Saturday and Sunday evenings, and Monday mornings.  Enjoy his movie star good looks.  Like father, like son.  But, my wife said: “Kamukha ko yata ‘yan.”  My wife is right.  Buti na lang

 

IT’S ABOUT RACE: Okey ngarud, that’s enough yabang.  Let’s go back to the race between Ms. Hillary and Mr. Obama.  So, Mr. Obama won a resounding victory in North Carolina on Tuesday and ran closely behind Ms. Hillary in Indiana.

 

And who said this race to the White House is not about RACE?  It stinks to high heavens of racial conflict between Black and White.

 

Just like in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana and all those southern states heavily populated by Blacks, Mr. Obama’s performance in North Carolina was, once again, bolstered by a strong Black vote!  He garnered over 90% of those voters in that state, where Blacks accounted for one in three voters.

 

Ms. Hillary continued to draw her strongest support from Whites, working class whites, that is, and women … and old farts, like me.  In Indiana, according to The New York Times, about 8 in 10 voters were white and just over 1 in 10 were black.  Six in 10 of the whites voted for Mrs. Clinton, while 9 in 10 blacks favored Mr. Obama.  And about I in 10 whites said RACE was a factor in their vote and they voted overwhelmingly for her

 

As one Obama supporter said: “People, if they have a prejudice – no matter what it is, whether it’s religious, racial or whatever – are going to use them to justify NOT voting for him.”

Days before the primaries in North Carolina and Indiana, the Obambis voiced concern that Reverend Wright’s blasphemous curses and comments on America, would damage Mr. Obama’s chances.  As one Obama supporter said: “People, if they have a prejudice – no matter what it is, whether it’s religious, racial or whatever – are going to use them to justify NOT voting for him.”

 

Tit for tat!  Lo and behold!  Same thing goes with Senator Hillary!

 

Right after all the primary votes started coming in North Carolina, the OBAMBIS gleefully announced: “Dingdong!  The witch is dead!  The wicked witch is dead!  Let’s sing a song!  The wicked witch is dead!”  And so they did.  They gloated and sang their songs with glee. 

 

On CNN, where I watched the election results, all the BLACK news analyst KUNO, commentators, contributors all wore a toothy smile.  Then, when the Indiana result came in later in the evening, their toothy, happy smile changed into toothy, dumpy snarl.

 

It’s funny, I think, how those so-called mainstream broadcast journalists or whatever you call them, show their bias and blatant dislike for Hillary Clinton.  It’s laughable how their eyes bugged out and their mouths turned motor-like whenever Senator Obama is put in a bad light.  It’s so hilarious to watch them get on, how their mouths rat-tat-tat overtime, especially that time when Ms. Hillary won Pennsylvannia.  Ron Allen and Jamal something and Brazille whatever her last name was … were hot and on the warpath.  Now, they jump and whoop with joy.

 

Senator Obama's 20-year association with Reverend Wright calls into question his MORAL COURAGE and TRUTHFULNESS.  At first he refused to denounce him, but when he was pressured, he denounced him and said he was “appalled” by his words.

ON BIGOTRY: Leonard Pitts, Jr., a syndicated columnist of The Miami Herald, said in his recent column: “If you condemn bigotry when it is turned against people like you, but tolerate it when people like you turn it against someone else, you forfeit all claim to the moral high ground.  You are a HYPOCRITE acting only from narrow self-interest.”  Mr. Pitts, by the way, is Black.

 

Call me a bigot.  I don’t like Mr. Obama. 

 

Because to me, his 20-year association with Reverend Wright calls into question his MORAL COURAGE and TRUTHFULNESS.  At first he refused to denounce him, but when he was pressured, he denounced him and said he was “appalled” by his words.  We heard different versions as to when he knew him and what he knew about him.  It also calls into question Mr. Obama’s JUDGMENT in calling Mr. Wright, his pastor, mentor, friend and uncle.  This uncle was his “inspiration” for his book, “Audacity of Hope.”

 

To me, Barack HUSSEIN Obama is the creation of Rev. Jeremiah Wright.  And I trust neither of them.  One is the other.  A replica of the other.  Mr. Obama once said: “I can no more disown him (Wright) than I can disown my white grandmother.”  But for political reason, he was able to.  That’s scary.  A man like that is untrustworthy. 

 

For America’s sake, Ms. Hillary must fight on.  She must learn now how to walk on water.  And I believe she will.  JFK was in the same situation in 1960.  He fought on and won.  Like him, she will.  Yes, she will!  JJ
