Weird Statements from Obama

I still love Obama, but this is a curious quote:

“I would not be here had it not been for 1984, had it not been for 1988.”
— Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), quote by the New York Daily News, saying he owed “a great debt” to the Rev. Jesse Jackson and his previous runs for president.

No, he really doesn’t. Obama is a solid liberal, but Jackson was practically a socialist. Obama has twelve years of experience in elected office; Jackson had none. Obama isn’t a slave descendent; Jackson is. And, of course, Obama isn’t a raving anti-semite; Jackson is. If there’s anyone who owes a debt to Jackson, it’s this clown, who’s looking like he’ll be running in 2008 as well, with the approximate seriousness with which Jackson ran in 1984 and 1988.
