Steele: Obama Got Free Ride From Media Because He's Black

Michael Steele, Republican Party Chairman

Story here.

"The problem that we have with this president is we don’t know him. He was not vetted, folks... He was not vetted, because the press fell in love with the black man running for the office. 'Oh gee, wouldn’t it be neat to do that? Gee, wouldn’t it make all of our liberal guilt just go away? We can continue to ride around in our limousines and feel so lucky to live in an America with a black president.'"

"OK that’s wonderful, great scenario, nice backdrop," Steele reportedly continued. "But what does he stand for? What does he believe?"

Steele went on to criticize his fellow Republicans for not "dissecting and understanding" Obama's controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Finally, someone of lofty stature says what needs to be said.

Too many folks of stature appear to be intimidated into not stating the obvious. No wonder the People are unaware of the obvious as a consequence of this silence.

Of course, Mr. Steele must be, well, steeled so as to deal with the Left-Wing Extremist backlash which always comes following someone (not a Leftist) speaking the inconvenient truth.

It also appears to me that the Big Media is sexist. Just compare the treatment they gave (and continue to give) Sarah Palin to the treatment they gave (and continue to give) Mr. Obama.

I guess the Big Media chose their candidate based on skin color rather than gender (in a way, Sarah Palin was as much the one to vote for as was the actual Republican Presidential nominee).

Oh, my... the Big Media is both sexist and racist! And they'll call anyone who says so a sexist and racist so as to project their own faults onto their accusers.

I hope there'll be more speaking of inconvenient truth by Republicans and other conservatives of stature, who can force Big Media coverage by virtue of comments that go viral on the blogosphere and which prove the Big Media irrelevant and biased if they refuse to cover it, and cover it properly, without calling people "teabaggers" or whatever.
