Barack Obama: I’m sorry but this dude just is not doing it for me. I have to agree with the political analysts (and surprisingly Hillary Clinton) when they say that he doesn’t have enough experience. I’ve watched a couple of the debates and he’s done a poor job in my opinion. Some Black folks have pretty much told me I should vote for him because he’s Black. Uh…no! Are we still operating of off such silly notions? C’mon people! Is brown skin the only requirement? Well, what about Clarence Thomas, he has brown skin…
John Edwards: Who? I’m just kidding. But seriously, I really do forget about him. He’s boring. I found myself yawning as I was listening to him speak on “The Today Show” this morning. He’s the same ole, dry, boring politician. You could substitute him with any White, male, democrat with a carefully coiffed hair cut. (And didn’t he spend thousands of dollars on a haircut at one point?) YAWN! At least Obama and Clinton are interesting.
Mike Huckabee: Evangelical Christian, right wing, conservative. I don’t need to say anymore. Says, Huckabee, “I will take our country back for those who belong here. No open borders, no amnesty, no sanctuary, no false Social Security numbers, no driver’s licenses for illegals.” Those who belong here? Hmm…we know who “they” think doesn’t belong here…it at aint you my friend and it aint me. Why doesn’t he just come out and say, “America is a White, Christian country. The rest of you don’t belong here.”
So, what am I left with? No independent candidate. And really no one that moves me. Let’s just call it indecision 2008, shall we?
