Clinton Truth: Geraldine Ferraro: Sexist Media Obama Playing Racist Card

The Clinton crowd just can't help themselves, can they. Unbelievable Geraldine Ferraro says it's the Obama campaign that's making such a big deal of her comments.

"It's the Obama camp that's playing the racist card..."

Guess Geraldine didn't listen to what she actually said, not what she dreams she'd say'd... (see we deliberately didn't plagiarize).

It's also so less than flattering for the Clinton supporter to use the sexist argument - it's ok to be sexist, she says, but not ok to be racist.

Oh come on, get a grip. who won a seat in the Senate of the U.S.? Hillary Clinton.

A woman, right. So somebody voted for her, right, unless there was massive voter fraud.

How about Speaker of the House, Pelosi? A woman, right? Men in the Democratic House had to have voted for her or she wouldn't have made it as their Speaker.

It's because Hillary Clinton is Hillary Clinton... that she's exactly where she is at this moment in time...

Woman against that woman... and here are a few well-expressed reasons why...

Hillary's race against time
Are Clinton's inept attack ads and faux-feminism enough? Can Obama learn to attack? Plus: American eroticism devolves to Barbie boobs and Botox.
By Camille Paglia

...Her cutesy campaign has set a bad precedent for future women candidates, who should stand on their own as proponents of public policy.

Would I want Hillary answering the red phone in the middle of the night? No, bloody not. The White House first responder should be a person of steady, consistent character and mood -- which describes Obama more than Hillary...

Ferraro: 'They're attacking me because I'm white'

...She also said Hillary Clinton had been the victim of a "sexist media."...

Uh wake up Geraldine - they're attacking you because what you said was stupid. If a Republican white woman had said anything along the same lines as Democrat(ic) Geraldine, she'd have had to leave the entire country by now.

So you get a pass, get it?

Ferraro said she was not trying to diminish Obama's candidacy, and acknowledged up front that she would not have been the vice presidential nominee in 1984 if she had been a man.

But she also echoed remarks of feminist leaders like Gloria Steinem, who argued in the New York Times that Obama would not have succeeded if he were a woman because gender is "the most restricting force in American life."

"Sexism is a bigger problem," Ferraro argued. "It's OK to be sexist in some people's minds. It's not OK to be racist."

Barack Obama is a multiracial American politician, though he bristles at that label...
