Compare the endorsements for Obama and McCain – there is no comparison

Today’s endorsement of Barack Obama by Colin Powell is just one in a very long string of prestigious and resounding endorsements. If you would like to compare endorsements, look at these two pages:

- List of Barack Obama presidential campaign endorsements, 2008

- List of John McCain presidential campaign endorsements

There is no comparison.

In endorsing Obama, Powell made this statement:

“I’m also troubled by, not what Sen. McCain says, but what members of the party say, and it is permitted to be said such things as: “Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.” Well, the correct answer is: he is not a Muslim. He’s a Christian. He’s always been a Christian. But the really right answer is: What if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer is: No, that’s not America. Is there something wrong with some 7-year-old Muslim-American kid believing he or she can be president?”

“Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country?” Yes. The problem is that Christians see all non-Christians (including Muslims, and most especially rationals) as evil people who should be exterminated. The Republican party has made this position explicit in 2008.

PS – The Republican party has also made racism explicit in 2008:

Powell endorsement incites right-wing rage

    Shouldn’t you have made this comment under the previous post re: free will? Sure seems to go along with the whole “Believe in God or burn in Hell” angle.
