RNC Lashes Out At Obama For Criticizing Slavery
Ofall the people/organizations in Washington most likely to embarrass themselves with Twitter's power of spontaneity, those masterful enablers of the Inadvertently Hilarious at the RNC probably lead the pack. So look what they found yesterday: a word-play! Oh that Obama, that lying OBAMA, one day it's "Constitution" this, another day "Gay Europe" that. Links to a brief YouTube clip, with no historical context. Does anyone want to learn the historical context, though? No! This isn't Harvard or whatever the hell it's called, the other one, Dart-Mouth.
Barack Obama, September 6, 2001: A September 6, 2001 program called “Slavery and the Constitution” on WBEZ Chicago…. Obama explained that the “fundamental flaw” [in the Constitution] was [that] “Africans at the time were not considered as part of the polity that was of concern to the framers.” In addition, the framers did not “see…it as a moral problem involving persons of moral worth.” http://apps.wbez.org/blog/?p=639
What's he prattling on about? The RNC Twitter Machine doesn't speak Ebonics.
