Lay Off My Spouse…Unless Your Spouse is a Racist

Barack Obama telling Republicans to stop attacking his wife for making an unpatriotic comment really puzzled me for three reasons.

Firstly, does Obama actually think the Republicans will be nice this presidential campaign? Even though he was forceful, saying “lay off my spouse”, it was still whining and Presidents don’t whine. She said what she said. Live with it. The Republicans will not do you any favors.

Secondly, you can’t blame McCain for ads a state Republican Party runs…if you don’t blame Obama for comments they are making about Cindy McCain about her tax return. McCain can’t control his entire party, and if Obama really thinks McCain can exert that kind of influence, he better be prepared to defend all the spots made by Democrats until November.

Thirdly, and most startlingly, Obama does not want his wife to face criticism, yet this is the campaign that ran around South Carolina calling Bill Clinton, who many Black people called the “First Black President” while he was in office, a racist. They attacked and smeared Bill Clinton, Hillary’s spouse, when it would benefit them, but now that his wife faces criticism, it’s “lay off”.

All this leads me to believe either Obama wants a double-standard, which would not be anything new, or he is simply naïve and inexperienced, both of which are far worse than anything his wife has ever said.

It seems to me that if you have your own daily agenda, if you are out there making speeches and doing events on your own, if you appear on TV talk shows, and if the purpose of all this activity is to ask people to vote for your husband, then the opposition is quit entitled to start asking questions about you and your beliefs.

If you can't stand the heat, etc ....
