Here's one last topic I want to cover before I end this. Once again, O&A this morning talking about how Obama will never be President. Anthony was saying that even though our cities (LA, NYC, Boston, San Fran, etc.) are very liberal and free-thinking, we don't understand how "outnumbered" we are by people that "use the 'n' word every time Obama comes on the screen." His argument was supported by the recent release of the music tours that made the most money in 2006. Aside from the Rolling Stones at #1, four out of the top 5 highest grossed tours were country singers -- Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, and Toby Keith, I think -- thus "proving" that there are more closed-minded Southerners than "we" think.
He went on to say that it would be "so easy" for the Democrats to win the 2008 election, since Bush has "screwed up so badly" this last term. Even some Republicans are going to be voting Democrat just because Bush is such a screw-up. All the Democrats need to do is "put any white guy out there as their candidate" and they have it in the bag. Any Democrat but a black man or a woman would win the Presidency.
I want opinions on this. Do people agree with him, and think Obama has no chance of winning?
I'm not completely sold either way. I hope and PRAY he has a chance, especially if the 18-24 year olds get out there and do their thing. Even a good Republican friend of mine said he would vote for Obama.
So -- even though he has my support -- what's the word? Does he even have a prayer of winning the Presidency?
I'd also like to point out that the radio guy commented on the amount of black Presidents on TV and in movies -- Morgan Freeman in Deep Impact, Tommy Lister in The Fifth Element, Dennis Haysbert and now D.B. Woodside in 24 ... why is it acceptable for us on TV and in the movies, but not in real life?
I want some comments. What do YOU think?And my response:
