Obama's Hideous Howard Speech; divisive, racialist

"I never was post-racial!"  "Don't expect me to be a healer. I have no intention of healing any wounds in society" Obama channels his mentor, Jeremiah Wright and serves notice that he has only begun to bring division and anger to America. TD

. . . "Obama's at Howard University, said, "Hey, I was never about that! Other people said that I was into this post racial America stuff. I was never into that! I never said that," and he's right. He never did.
"But a lot of people thought it.
. . . "They were hoping that a black president would send such a message and that it would mean substantive improvement for African-Americans in this country. And again, I want to reiterate: Nobody thought that meant more welfare or more benefits or more dependence, but that actual, quality standard of living improvements would take place. And there haven't been any, at large. And here's Obama saying: I will remember what I was about. Other people out there were saying that, but that was not mine.
"So he's admitting it. Post racial, post... He was also supposed to be "postpartisan," if you know what that means. How many of you remember during the campaign Obama he was gonna end all the division? He was gonna unify us. We were gonna come together. We were gonna be a nation at one with each other. Yeah, "No red states, no blue states; no Democrats, no Republicans." That's from his convention speech, Democrat convention, what, in 2008? So postpartisan. That means that partisan America, the divide is gone.
"Obama was gonna do all that. He's telling the students at Howard University, "Hey, I never said that. That was not me. I never said it," 'cause he doesn't want it to end."
Here is a sound bite from Obama's speech:

"OBAMA: Be confident in your heritage. Be confident in your blackness. ... Remember the tie that does bind us as African-Amer'cans and that is our particular awareness of injustice and unfairness and struggle. ... We have cousins and uncles and brothers and sisters who we remember were just as smart and just as talented as we were, but somehow got ground down by structures that are unfair and unjust. And that means we have to not only question the world as it is and stand up for those African-Americans who haven't been so lucky."  Rush Limbaugh
The most interesting line in Obama’s Howard speech was about empathy, not ‘blackness’
And follow Obama's pattern of being full of yourselves.

"Under the section marked “political activists,” the Army Command Policy states that West Point cadets may “register, vote, and express their personal opinion on political candidates and issues, but not as a representative of the Army.' ”
