The Great Non Sequitur, by Charles Krauthammer

A short reply by Con George-Kotzabasis
In the “progressivist” euphoria of seeing a black American with an agile mind of capturing the up till now Waspish Whitehouse, most people cannot see the first awakening movements of the sleeping demon of racism rising from its slumbers to bite Obama’s ambition to become the next president of the U.S.A. . But the ever watchful Argus-eyed New York Times. which always has its finger up in the air to feel the political cross winds that are battering the American electorate, has already sensed that Obama cannot win the election, despite the fact that he has won most states in the primaries, against John McCaine, and therefore it has “de-barracked” Obama and is barracking for Clinton. The …Times, on March 9, 2008, under the rubric The Editorial Board’s Primary Choices, states, that “the editorial board endorses Senator … Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination”. Thus surprisingly declaring itself against the majority of Democrats who prefer Obama. And the only reason for doing this is no other than in the editorial board’s educated guess is that America at this stage is not ready to vote a black American into the Whitehouse.
The next to follow this line of the … Times will be the super delegates of the Democratic Convention who at the penultimate moment the majority of them will be also endorsing Senator Clinton as their nominee. Thus we will be told, that the flagship of the liberal media The… Times and the liberal super delegates of the Democrats had decided that the best way to repulse this wave of impending racism from falling and drowning their black candidate is to attract this rising wave of racism behind their waspish candidate Clinton, whose tsunami will have a greater chance of raising the latter to the Oval Office.
Moreover, Obama is politically totally unfit to lead a great nation that faces stupendous challenges and dangers in our times with his populist siren songs and idyllic rhetoric to a deeply divided America, issuing from how to deal and handle Islamist global terror, and its corollary, the war in Iraq. And as Krauthammer correctly points out “uniting is not a matter of rhetoric and manner, but of character and courage”.
And in this case John McCaine is Napoleon’s “voila une homme“. As Obama’s spine is made up of neon light flashes and has no backbone. But if he does get the Democratic nomination, I too believe he will lose the election. As the presently dormant demon of race will awake from its present slumber at the crucial moment-this time for the good of America and the free world- along with its auxiliaries, the American Latinos and the Asians, and prevent a political dilettante from getting the helm of power in his hands in our turbulent and most dangerous times.
