Affirmative Action reaches new heights.

It occurred to me just a little while ago, that affirmative action has reached the pinnacle of success. We now have a President who has been elected by virtue of affirmative action. This cannot be denied.

He entered the political scene in 1997, when he was elected to the Illinois state senate. He remained in the Illinois senate until he was elected to the US Senate in 2004.

He took office in 2005. Two years into FIRST his senate term of 6 years, he announced his candidacy for President of the United States. This was on Feb. 10, 2007. He got to the top office in the land in a little over 10 years.

By contrast, JFK, of whom many Democrats like to compare BHO to, served in the US House of Representatives from 1947 to 1953, and then in the US Senate from 1953 to 1960, before being elected President. It took JFK 13 years, not counting his time in the US Navy.

Now, some might say that there's not much difference. But I will point out this. BHO's 10 years only include 3 in federal office. All 13 of JFK's are in federal office. As either a Representative, or Senator.

And I put it to you, had JFK tried running for President after just 2 years in either the House or the Senate, he would have been laughed out of the race.

So yes, Affirmative action had a hand in this last presidential race, whether anyone else wants to admit it or not.

Now, lest you think I'm prejudiced. I'll tell you straight out, I am. But it's not the color of his skin that bothers me. He could be red, brown, black, pink, or WHITE. I still would not have voted for him. It's his politics I'm against. I'll never vote for a socialist, a communist, a Marxist, or a gun grabber. I'm pretty sure he's all of those. But if I'm wrong, I know he is at least one of those.
