Former Vice Presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro is under attack from members of a political entity known as the "Obama Concept" over comments she recently made while campaigning for Hillary Clinton.
Ferraro said, "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept … "
The Obama Concept fired back at Ferraro by labeling her comments divisive and absurd. There are several other items found to be divisive and absurd by the Obama Concept:
- Any reference to the words 'Obama' and 'Muslim' in the same sentence
- Any reference to the words 'Obama' and 'inexperienced' in the same sentence
- Any reference to the words 'Obama' and 'Rezko slum lord' in the same sentence
- Any reference to the words 'Obama' and 'anti-white church' in the same sentence
- Any reference to the words 'Obama' and 'Marxism' in the same sentence
- Any reference to the words 'Obama' and 'substance' in the same sentence
- Any reference to the words 'Obama' and 'VP slot' in the same sentence
The Obama Concept is careful to point out that any negative reference to the Concept is to be considered divisive and absurd. As Obama himself puts it:
"We are about the warmth of unity and not the frightful, frozen land of division. We bring the abundance of hope to the starvation of despair. We say, where there is the pain of discomfort, we bring the vision of pleasure. We must be ready.
There are those who say we are only about the scent of flowery rhetoric. But these are the naysayers of the past, and those who would divide us with dusty, murky imagery. We say, let those ancient minds remain stagnant. They are not ready.
The Obama future holds many ways for us to embrace change and enhance hope. We must first consider the object of change and how that change object folds itself around the vehicle of hope. Only when the two are together, in unity and without the divide of outmoded politics, will we be ready for tomorrow's change of audacious hope.
My detractors ask me about the audacity of my new hope. They say my bold hope is not especially real because it uses only words without cemented meanings. But they would steal nourishing hope from the minds and mouths of our children. My detractors are the thieves of my universally inclusive hope.
To keep the hope thieves at bay, it needs a home and where does hope find a home? I can tell you where hope resides; it resides here next to my change garden. I am the exclusive agent of hope and change. I am the farmer of goodness. Everything speaks through me. Any supporter of me is a supporter of goodness, hope, fairness, change, abundance, happiness, virtue, progress and the condition of being glad. Are you ready? If not, you are divisive and absurd."
