Presidential Polls are Close - Liberals Blame Racism Instead of Liberalism

The race card has been thrown.  Barack Obama has failed to put away John McCain and the race for the presidency is close.

Could it be because Americans like McCain?

Could it be that they approve of his choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate?

Could it be that Obama's qualifications have been weighed by the American people and found wanting?

Could it be because Americans are not ready for socialized medicine or the tax increases that promise to come with an Obama presidency?

Could it be because Obama's position on the war in Iraq and opposition to the troop surge has proven wrong?

Could it be that America does not want a true-blue liberal as President of the United States?

Heck no.  That has nothing to do with it say the liberals themselves.  Kansas Governor Katheen Sebelius is one example and CNN's Jack Cafferty is another case in point, who writes today on his blog that the tightness of the polls "doesn't make sense . . . unless its race."

Sorry Jack, it makes a whole lot of sense unless you're a liberal yourself . . . and race has nothing to do with it.  Many of us out here across America do not want a liberal to be president, black, white, or green.  
Just because we're backing McCain-Palin does not mean that we wear white robes and hoods or support the KKK.  Accusations otherwise are offensive.

It's probably fair to question whether or not race is a factor.

However, Obamba, to my knowledge, did not change is race between August 29th and September 5th. He was way ahead in the polls on the 29th, but is no more. Can that change be explained by the race question? I think not.

The *only* thing that has changed significantly to explain the change in the polls is Sarah Palin.

What does Ms. Palin bring to the race? Anti-abortion and pro-religion stances, and the ability to relate to the common family - three things that the Democratic ticket doesn't have.

"A" factor . . . sure, it is a question worthy of debate. "The" factor . . . no, it is not.
