McCain’s going to woo the black vote…in South Philly?

with 2 comments

The New York Times reported on April 4th that Senator McCain plans to criss-cross the states in order to woo the black vote. He’ll have to do a lot more research if he wants to know exactly where to woo that vote. This man truly doesn’t have any concept of who we are as a nation.

“I know that I’m not going to get a majority of the African-American vote,” Mr. McCain said last week in a radio interview on ‘The Tavis Smiley Show’. “But I’m going to campaign all over this country. I’m going to go to South Philadelphia, I’m going to go to the Black Belt in Alabama, I’m going to go all over America, and I’m going to communicate, I’m going to talk with, I’m going to share the frustrations, the hopes and the dreams that the African-American community has.”

The Philadelphia Daily News busted McCain for this gaffe, making a strong point in an editorial, that McCain is flying under the radar. They go on to make a point I’ve been noticing about Senator McCain throughout this election season, he’s far too confused to hold the toughest job in the land. His confusions over race, the economy and just who we’re fighting in Iraq are just not what America needs to constantly keep perpetuating.

That’s the thing about Senator Obama of Kansan and Kenyan blood, he’s a non-racial candidate. I honestly believe him when he says he has no vested racial interests. You may see him as a black man or simply as an American. There is little doubt, however, that in the White House he would devote himself to all Americans, not just the privileged few embraced by the current administration.
