Democrats were understandably thrilled that it was their guy, Barack Obama, who finally nailed Osama bin Laden, who has for the past decade been as elusive as he was hated. But just how much of a political boon is the victory for the president? That’s the question asked today by the Daily Beast’s Michael Tomasky, who sees it as a major shift away from the Democrats’ dovish image.
For years the Left has told black children that America is racist and oppressive. Black children have been told that the system is stacked against them, and that white people are the enemy. Racial hucksters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are the main perpetrators against the black community, but the entire Democratic Party is guilty as well. And of course, who can forget President Obama’s pastor for twenty years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who constantly proclaimed to his congregants the evil and racism inherent in America.
