there is nothing wrong with this photo but there is something seriously wrong with someone (especially someone who wants to be the next president but can't think of any other way to win but to appeal to the ignorant) who circulated the photo with the intention of spreading the rumor that obama is muslim and sympathetic to terrorists, someone who wanted people to become fearful. i have to add here that muslims are not terrorists. only terrorists are terrorists.
i try to keep this blog positive but i really think we've had enough of fear mongering. that's why we're supporting obama.
for those who don't already know, obama's father is from kenya and this outfit was presented to him by an elder when he visited in 2006. it's a great photo and a kind gesture.
he also received a hero's welcome. obama took an AIDS test while he was there to encourage kenyans to do the same. 2 million people have died of AIDS there.
want to know more? pick up his memoir "dreams from my father."
let's get beyond silly season.
in response to clinton's silly season attacks:
Obama adviser Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, USAF (ret) accompanied obama to kenya. here's his response to Clinton's attacks on Obama:obama's speeches
"Americans are looking for a Commander-in-Chief who will make the right judgments on Day One. It's ironic that Hillary Clinton compared Barack Obama to George Bush when she voted to authorize the war in Iraq, supports the Bush policy of not talking to leaders we don't like, and gave George Bush the benefit of the doubt on Iran and Pakistan. On these key questions, Barack Obama not only made a different judgment - he made the right judgment. That is why more and more Americans believe that he is the best choice to defend our security as Commander-in-Chief, and to restore our standing in the world."
