Is Geraldine Ferraro projecting her own doubts about Hillary?

Just had a retort to Geraldine Ferraro’s offensive comments about Barack Obama; that “if Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position.” Imagine for a moment that it was not Barack Obama running for democratic nominee, but rather Alan Keyes

– compare and contrast

Would Alan Keyes ‘be in the same position” that Obama is now? Certainly not; even though, yes Geraldine, his skin is also darker than yours. But why not? Oh, could it be that for all of Mr. Keyes’ political experience, he is a right-wingnut whose political positions are just plain scary? That he is not qualified to be the democratic nominee because of his politics

Let’s look at this another way; if you were presented with a candidate for democratic nominee, ‘Herman McLinton’, who was on the board at union-hating Wal-Mart for six years, who voted for war in Iraq and had “no regrets” about doing so later and who, unlike their opponents, won’t reveal their tax returns; wouldn’t… shouldn’t Democrats have serious issues with voting for them?

The sad subtext that I get out of Hillary’s camp is that they don’t necessarily feel their candidate is qualified but feel that its important to elect woman; however when faced with another visible minority who is probably better qualified for the job and more popular, they begin projecting. Does Geraldine feel that ‘if Hillary was a man, he would not be in this position.’?

    You are the one who’s scary. You lemmingly repeat what you hear the leftist media say about Alan Keyes, without looking into fact. Alan Keyes is conservative because he wants to conserve America and our Constitution.

    For readers who think for themselves, visit http://www.alankeyes.com, see what Alan really believes, and then understand why he has been mocked and marginalized by the media.

    If you are conservative, and can’t vote for unconservative McCain, you may have the opportunity to vote third party this time.

    Oh please; a brief glance at http://www.alankeyes.com/issues_list.php is enough to confirm everything I already knew about Mr. Keyes’ positions. He is one of those conservatives who doesn’t understand why the separation of church and state is a good thing. Anyone who says things like “In addition to overturning Roe v. Wade, we need a Human Life Amendment that respects life and restores our respect for the will of God.” is a right-wingnut in my book.
