Later Wednesday, Obama gave a 10-minute talk by live broadcast to a joint meeting in Atlanta of four historically black Baptist denominations, where Clinton was to appear in person later. These groups produced some of the most prominent civil rights leaders, including the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.. whom Obama quoted.
“Pastors are pushing this movement forward,” Obama said of his campaign, “and I need each and every one of you in this fight.”
Funny how the anti-religious left likes to complain about conservatives reaching out to the religious and yet they say nothing about Obama doing it.
He asked the audience to imagine what it would mean for the country to see him with his hand on the Bible, taking the presidential oath of office.

Really? Are you serious? HOW? You have to have a black president before you can see possibilities?
I recall all of my elementary teachers being female, until the sixth grade. Can I blame all of my poor performance on the fact that there weren’t any male teachers to give me hope? What a crock of bullshit! My favorite math teacher was black. Mr. Nelms. He’s the only teacher from elementary school that I can still name. He taught well, encouraged me and gave me hope. HOPE DOESN’T HAVE TO COME FROM SOMEONE OF THE SAME COLOR!!!!
What should we do now? Make sure each ethic group gets their ‘turn’ in so they can have ‘hope’ to? This is beyond ridiculous.
