Where is Barack Obama's condemnation of this statement by Florida Representative Alcee Hastings?:
“Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through,” Hastings added...
Hastings was speaking before a group of Jewish and African-American Democrats and they erupted in laughter and applause at his words. Jennifer Rubin:
If there were ever time for Barack Obama to show some leadership on race and religion this is it. Will he condemn the comment and banish Hastings from any campaign role? It is time to step up to the plate.
I've been unable to find any reaction by Obama to Hastings's outrageous comments.
Hillary Clinton's "great friend" also had a few words for her supporters: She lost. Get over it.
Sister Toldjah notes that Tennessee Rep. Steven Cohen, who was on the panel with Hastings, recently compared Palin to Pontias Pilate:
I should also note that that Steve Cohen mentioned in the CNN article is the same one who said the following on the House floor last week about Senator Obama and Gov. Palin:
“Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus…Pontias Pilate was a governor.”
"Where's the outrage?" There will be no outrage. These are Democrats after all.
Let's face it.
There is no way a Republican could say anything this foul and still have a career.
Then again... There aren't any impeached Republican judges currently serving in the US House.
Lest we forget:
For those not aware, Alcee AssStings “was appointed to the federal bench in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter” until he was impeached by the House of Representatives by a narrow margin of 413-3. Sadly, “the terms of his conviction did not bar him from holding a future public office.”
