In Response to the First Two Paragraphs of T Augustus' "Would You Vote For Obama Again?" by Merwin
I only read his first two paragraphs, and granted he wrote the Hub 14 months ago...
T Augustus in his second paragraph wrote...
"Why is this question being posed? I never heard anyone ask if I’d vote for Reagan again, or if I’d vote for Bush again, and I never heard anyone ask if I’d vote for Clinton again. I make the last distinction to state the point that it’s not a Republican/Democrat issue at hand; it’s a black/white issue."
I included the above excerpt, and then wrote the next few paragraphs at the end of the lengthy comment section (which I also did not read)...
You did not read or hear anyone asking that question concerning those other Presidents... I assume, only because you did not care one way or another what was being said.
I heard those questions in regard to all those Presidents.
I agree with your comments (though I stopped reading at the end of your second paragraph) about Bush, he was lame at best and criminal at worst.
I deeply disagree with your "its a black/white issue" I am a white conservative that has made the "write in" vote for Alan Keyes three Pres. elections in a row.
I also would have voted for him if he were a Democrat, also removing it from a partisan issue, at least for me.
Now... 14 months after your having wrote the Hub, and, after having read my comment, I have to ask... would you vote for Obama again..?
End of comment to T Augustus' Hub.
I never really think that racism or any other form of stupid bigotry will end on this side of Glory. I wish it would, but for me and many others it will simply remain a great and wonderful, hope and "dream", inspirational and uniquely delivered by Dr. Martin Luther King wherein he said we should be judged not by the color of our skin but the content of our character.
