Lauren, just last night I saw excerpts from a town hall meeting. Basically, the mortgage crisis was a planned attack on blacks and latinos, according to Mr. Obama.

I don't know what was the most offensive part of this.

Should I be offended because an awful lot of white people lost their homes, and they were ignored by this response?

Or should I be offended because, in effect, Obama has indicated with this response that blacks and latinos were the only ones affected, which means they need to be protected as they aren't smart enough to deal with wily mortgage lenders?

I'm choosing a third option. I am offended because Obama's answer was to a crowd that was predominently black and latino voters. He was pandering to the crowd. That is the most offensive of all. We don't need a President who offers a decision based upon the crowd. This is worse than flip flopping. This is insulting our collective intelligence. He insulted the blacks, latinos, and whites and every other color American who did their due diligence when making a major decision like buying a home. His words offended me, and should offend every thinking American.

Lot2learn, I had another clip set for today from the same site this came from. Blogger is giving me some trouble. But go on and check out that site and you'll be amazed. A few more coming this week.

HappyhourSue, let us know how hubby reacts.

D.O.M., I always say how closely we are on our thoughts. Are you SURE you don't have a guy like you to set me up with?

Chatty, YEP. And to think someone I know just called ME offensive for showing this on my blog. I guess pointing out hateful people is offensive to the PC police.
