Competence Has Nothing To Do With Race
, May 20, 2012
This review is from: The Amateur (Hardcover)
Edward Klein has performed a wonderful service for the American voter. Obama has been so reluctant to let anyone know his true history that, unfortunately, it takes a persistent and courageous intellect like Klein to do the work for all of us. We owe him a debt.
With Barack Obama, you automatically get called a "racist" if you disagree with him, or notice any of his abundance of flaws. Anyone using such names, in my opinion, are simply projecting their own racism onto the individuals they are accusing of it. Many of us knew before he was elected the first time that Obama was not ready to be President (he even questioned this himself), and that his politics were on the far left. He has confirmed all of this in the last three years. Pointing this out is clear thinking, not racism.
Competence has nothing to do with race. There are light-skinned morons and dark-skinned geniuses and vice versa. It is not one's skin color which defines anyone, it is their mind and their character. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated it as well as anyone. He wanted his children judged, "not by the color or their skin", but by their "character." Character is an individual trait, not a group trait. It doesn't matter what skin color Obama is; it matters whether or not he is a competent President.
I would encourage you to buy this book and discover for yourself if Obama is a competent President. Mr. Klein is very convincing - as is Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
