He Hated Us Then

One wonders what he thinks of us now.

This is the guy who was going to close the racial divide.  Heal a wounded nation.  Take us to that point where we would, indeed, judge a man by his character and not ...

Oh, bullshit.

He hated white people in 2007.  And, as is made clear in this video that has apparently just (re)surfaced, he was quite proud of it. (Note, by the way, that he's got his "Mississippi" on as he delivers this speech; a southern accent coming from a politician raised in Hawaii; key word being politician):

Obama: “We don’t need to build more highways out in the suburbs. We should be investing in minority-owned business, in our neighborhoods.”

Kinda goes along with the resentment and disdain he exuded in that speech he delivered two months ago in Roanoke in which he went after those who have worked over the years to make this a better nation. "You didn't build that!"

Is it any wonder that race relations have been set back a half-century since Obama became president?
