If He Were the Reverend Imus, Would He Have Been Okay?

Barack Obama had some strong words for a racist recently:

“There’s nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. He didn’t just cross the line, he fed into some of the worst stereotypes…”

This wasn’t said about his racist, anti-American reverend and spiritual advisor, Jeremiah Wright. Oh no. Obama has deflected Wright’s comments in spite of having sat through them on several occasions.

Actually, Obama made the above comments last year about Don Imus after his “nappy headed hos” comment.

I guess Imus should just start calling himself a “reverend and spiritual advisor” and he’d be safe from Obama criticisms.

It looks like Barack Obama is ready for big-time politics. He’s already developed an enormous appetite for double-standards.
