Obama watch, part 12

You can judge for yourself Obama’s smoky voice here.

I guess it’s time to dredge up the piece I wrote last summer about his speech on religion and politics, which differs little from what’s in his new book on the subject. If you’re interested, you might also want to take a look at his church’s website, these "precepts" and "covenantal statements", and this account of a visit to the church. This church takes its Afro-centrism seriously, but does qualify it in the following way:

W.E.B. DuBois indicated that the problem in the 20th century was going to be the problem of the color line. He was absolutely correct. Our job as servants of God is to address that problem and eradicate it in the name of Him who came for the whole world by calling all men, women, boys and girls to Christ.

I’m not quite sure how this squares with, for example, a "[p]ersonal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System," as the precepts call for; perhaps some enterprising reporter will ask Obama about it.

His background information confirms what most Republicans and clever moderates of all stripes have known for a while: Barack Obama is no different than the rest of the self-inflating and completely ineffectual leaders of the Black community over the past 150 years, the only difference being that his empty rhetoric is resonating with a bigger crowd. And I ask in passing, does the Black Value System supercede one’s duty/commitment to the United States of America? cause that’s the impression I get.
