Hering, Confused


What did Barack Obama mean when he said in Missouri this week that John McCain would try to scare voters by pointing out that Obama “doesn’t look like all the other presidents on the dollar bill”?

The Democratic candidate and his campaign said the the remark was not about race. What was it about, then?


The line probably sounded pretty good to the candidate when he said it. But if he really did not mean it to be about race, he should have been a little more specific so that America could tell what he meant. (hh)

Translation: .... "so that I could tell what he meant."

Some of us got the intended meaning just fine, Hasso. And yeah, it was about race. No question about that - just as is there is no question that there are millions of people in America who will not vote for Obama because he's black. Some of them even admit it when asked by pollsters.

Hasso Herring is a big thumbs-down.
