It Was Hate that Propelled Obama into the White House
By Con George-Kotzabasis
You don’t have to be clairvoyant to know that hate is ‘democratic’, and except for the spiritually and philosophically noble, afflicts most humans. Your riposte is shallow and irrelevant as I was not comparing the hate of the left with that of the right wing, nor was I attempting to be judgmental whether Bush/Cheney deserved it or not—although my strong belief was and is that it was and is highly undeserved. I merely stated that hate was the main stimulant that pushed Obama into the White House, as well of course the seminal event of the Lehman collapse that exacerbated the economic crisis. And to recognize the reality that “racism is bound to continue as a factor” in American politics, does not entail that I’m pleased.
