It's his beliefs, not his skin color

Regarding Larry Jarrett's recent letter:


Contrary to his thinking, South Carolina and Georgia have more savvy than he does. It is not because Barack Obama is part black that people oppose him, it's for his really radical record. Not only his Senate record, which is genocidal where newborn babies are concerned, but also because he does not know how to choose his friends.

There is an old saying, that you know the man by the company he keeps. And just who have Obama's friends been? First is Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who preaches hate for whites and America; he was the Obama family pastor for 20 years.

Second, is William Ayers, the unrepentant bomb-throwing anti-capitalist terrorist, who has been an Obama political ally for years. Recently Ayers met with radical left Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez and has worked with Obama for ACORN, an allegedly corrupt nationwide voter registration group that falsifies registrants...

These issues are only the tip of the iceberg. Until he was 7 years old, Obama was instructed in Muslim beliefs. You do not forget teachings of your formative years. Earlier this year on TV Obama made what would seem to be a Freudian slip, talking of "my Muslim faith." The commentator said, "You mean your Christian faith?" and Obama replied, "My Christian faith."

America is a Christian nation, formed by our ancestors. They would turn over in their graves if they could see the likes of Obama. If someone like Gen. Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice or even Bill Cosby ran for president, we know America would be their first priority. But Obama, quite frankly, could be the downfall of the United States.

We have enough bad politicians in Congress, like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. These people need to be thrown out, for they do not represent America. And people like Larry Jarrett need to start seeing the light.
