Here we go again! Another member of the Obama campaign is accusing the GOP of wearing white after Labor Day.
Kansas Gov Kathleen Sebelius, once thought of as a VP candidate for Obama, is the latest Obama surrogate to inject race into this election. On Tuesday she told a crowd in Iowa that the GOP is using code words to inject race into this election.
When asked if Obama and the Democrats would fight for a victory in November, Sebelius answered ” Have you noticed that Barack Obama is part African-American?” then added that the “Republicans are not going to go lightly into the darkness”. She has not clarified her comments yet.
Governor Sebelius is not some left wing blogger whose post you read and then discard as idiotic. She is a vocal supporter of Obama who has been asked by the campaign to travel around the country and speak on behalf of Obama. She was once considered an alternative to Hilary Clinton for the VP nomination. Sebelius is also the Governor of a state, a position she should take responsibly and not use to instill fear in voters.
Race is the elephant in the room according to Sen Obama, his surrogates, volunteers and the media( http://caffertyfile.blogs.cnn.com/2008/09/16/obama-race-a-factor/) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ia75o5IO3xo) . They want us to believe that the only way to improve race relations in this country is to vote Obama into the White House. To those promoting this idea I would have to ask a simple question. Is this what Martin Luther King, Jr meant when he said ” I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
