Daily Kos: Tennessee Democrat Opines Obama May Be “Terrorist Connected”: "You may place this in the you’ve got to freakin’ be kidding me pile. From Tennessee:
Fred Hobbs, a state Democratic Party Executive Committee member representing part of Davis’ district, said he understands why [Tennessee Congressman Lincoln] Davis is not endorsing Obama and is “skeptical” of the Illinois senator himself.
“Maybe [it’s] the same reason I don’t want to — I don’t exactly approve of a lot of the things he stands for and I’m not sure we know enough about him,” Hobbs said when asked why he thought Davis wasn’t endorsing Obama. “He’s got some bad connections, and he may be terrorist connected for all I can tell. It sounds kind of like he may be.”
Dear Tennessee Democratic Party Executive Committee Member Fred Hobbs: please explain to America why you think Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee for the Presidency of the United States of America, might be “terrorist connected.” For bonus points, Mr. Hobbs, what the hell — see if you can do it without using the word negro. Go on, we’ll wait.
No, I’m dead serious. You wouldn’t presume Hillary Clinton was “terrorist connected.” You wouldn’t presume John Edwards, or John Kerry, or Al Gore or Joe Biden or Chris Dodd or, for that matter, John McCain was “terrorist connected.” So what’s different about Barack Obama?"
Just so you know how things are done “over there”. You would imaging that a nation who pride it self of beeing the defender of democracy in the world would be free of explicit racism at least at the top political level. So is not the case and we will see a lot more of this from now and until the election.
