In an effort to wash the ickyness off, Obama today threw his own grandmother under the campaign bus:
I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more
disown him than I can my white grandmother – a woman who helped raise me, a
woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she
loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black
men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has
uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.
Before today I thought Obama to be, to borrow a phrase, an affable dunce. He seemed nice and genuine. But this is dispicable.
