Switching Obama and McCain

From the inbox:

Obama/Biden  vs McCain/Palin

What if things were  switched  around?…..

Think  about it.  Would  the country’s collective point of view be different? Could  racism be the culprit?

Ponder  the following:

What  if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage,  including  a three-month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage  daughter?

What  if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law  Review?

What  if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating  class?

What  if McCain had only married once, and Obama was a  divorcee?

What  if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his  standards?

What  if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair while he was still married?

What  if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to  painkillers  but also acquired them illegally through her charitable  organization?

What  if Cindy McCain graduated from  Harvard?

What  if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five? (The Keating Five  were five United  States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal  as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s  and early 1990s.)

What  if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent  speaker?

What  if Obama couldn’t read from a  teleprompter?

What  if Obama was the one who had military experience that included discipline problems  and a record of crashing three planes?

What  if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly,  on many occasions, a serious anger management  problem?

What  if Michelle Obama’s family had made their money from beer  distribution?

What  if the Obamas had adopted a white  child.

You  could easily add to this list.  If these questions reflected  reality, do  you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they  are?

This  is what racism does.  It covers up, rationalizes and  minimizes positive  qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative  qualities  in another when there is a color  difference.

Educational  Background

Education  isn’t everything but this is about the two highest offices in  the land as well as our standing in the world.
