–  My Take  –

Isn’t honesty so refreshing.  Koo-dos to Mr. Loyd Marcus for setting the record straight.

While watching the campaign of 2008, I kept waiting for Rod Serling to make his final remarks at the end of this Twilight Zone episode.   I really thought Mr. Serling had gone too far on this one.   The absurdity of this premise was even beyond the pale for The Twilight Zone;

A  guy running for President of the United States born a Muslim who  attended a church that cursed America and whose friends and associates were known terrorists and anarchists against Democracy and capitalism.    Come on Mr. Serling, aren’t you going a little too far this time?

Associated Press:  April 17, 1959  Hollywood, Ca.:
The Network turned down a proposal from the producers of The Twilight Zone saying ;
“The story was too “Absurd Even for Twilight Zone” in that
“The American Viewers Would Take The Storyline As An Insult To Their Intelligence” and that the story
“Would Portray American Voters As Moronic and Uncompassionate to the Victims and Families of Pearl Harbor.”
The story was about how only 7 years after Pearl Harbor was attacked, Americans voted for a Japanese man to be the President of The United States!

Back to 2008.  But this was not a TV show.  It was surreal but real!  How could this man be even in the running for the greatest office on earth?  Are you telling me that experience, character and patriotism are no longer required to be President of The United States?    Had Bill Clinton lowered the bar that much?

Mr. Marcus provides us with the ‘no spin’ answers;

A Black Man, The Progressive’s Perfect Trojan Horse

Posted by Loyd Marcus on Mar 25, 2010

…. I keep asking myself. How did our government move so far from the normal procedures of getting things done? Could a white president have so successfully pulled off shredding the Constitution to further his agenda? I think not.

Ironically, proving America is completely the opposite of the evil racist country they relentlessly accuse her of being, progressives used America’s goodness, guilt and sense of fair play against her. In their quest to destroy America as we know it, progressives borrowed a brilliant scheme from Greek mythology. They offered America a modern day Trojan Horse, a beautifully crafted golden shiny new black man as a presidential candidate. Democrat Joe Biden lorded Obama as the first clean and articulate African American candidate. Democrat Harry Reid said Obama only uses a black dialect when he wants.

White America relished the opportunity to vote for a black man naively believing they would never suffer the pain of being called racist again. Black Americans viewed casting their vote for Obama as the ultimate Affirmative Action for America’s sins of the past.  ….

No white president could get away with boldly and arrogantly thwarting the will of the American people and ignoring laws. President Clinton tried universal health care. Bush tried social security reform. The American people said “no” to both president’s proposals and it was the end of it. So how can Obama get away with giving the American people the finger? The answer. He is black.  …
