Obama gets a backbone

The Democrat debate was pretty interesting for the sheer fireworks and that finally the infighting we all know will implode these campaigns is beginning to show. When you don’t have ideas to run on or to differentiate yourself from the other candidates then rhetoric is all you have…and when empty words run low a personal attack is not far behind. We’ve all had debates with liberals and they all end in personal attacks since their arguments can hold the test of logic so just think what they do to themselves…the South Carolina debate was just the tip of the iceberg. Below are some highlights:

Question: Dr. Martin Luther King were alive today, unfortunately, he’s not, but if he were alive today, why do you think he would or why should he endorse you?

Edwards laid out all the reasons why King would pick him, and it was getting a bit tedious. This set up Obama to steal the show with “…I don’t think Dr. King would endorse any of us. I think what he would call upon the American people to do is to hold us accountable…” along with a charmingly subtle dig at Hillary that “change does not happen from the top down.”
How wonderful it would be if government leaders really believed that. Hillary was left to fiddle again about “change,” and I was thinking about the missing White House furniture.
There wasn’t the crass focus on identity politics that I expected. With all the talk of accountability, it strikes me that identity politics is a way for people to avoid precisely that. To hide behind personal characteristics and avoid being judged by the content of their character.

MLK jr. believed in personal responsibility not buying votes with programs and handouts; so to say he would support this crew is just plain wrong and revisionist history at work
