Funny how selectively the left makes fun of extreme religious-related statements. If a righty does it, it makes you a Bible-thumping idiot. If a lefty does it to tell us of the coming of Obamassiah, it’s just acknowledging “reality”.
“I will win. Don’t worry about that,” he said to the crowd of about 1,300 at his third event of the evening, according to the pool report.
He was warmly received by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who called him “a leader that God has blessed us with at this time.”
He then reverts back to blaming the oppostion for supposedly attempting to make Americans afraid of him because of his “funny name”. Someone’s using scare tactics to raise money and support, but it’s not the Republicans.
The Illinois senator said it is “a testament to the American spirit that I’m even standing here before you” as the Democratic Party’s presumed nominee, because some Americans are “still getting past” his name, which he said some consider funny.
“Change is always tough, and electing me is change … and it means that people are going to hesitate a little bit,” Obama told a crowd of about 200 deep-pocketed supporters at a VIP reception for South Asian and Pacific Islander supporters at the Fairmont Hotel.
Later, speaking to a dinner crowd of about 350, Obama sought to reassure Democrats, whom he said typically “get nervous and skittish right around this time” and worry that attacks and mudslinging will begin in the final weeks of the presidential race. Obama campaign workers said the $7.8 million was a record for a political fundraiser.
“They say, ‘Oh no, here the Republicans come,’ ” he said, adding that some think “it’s hard enough – Obama, it’s a funny name, and who knows what they’re (the Republicans) going to do?”
Pathetic. If you oppose Obama, it must be because you’re afraid of his name or are simply racist. And those nasty Republicans are going to start using race-based or name-based attacks any day now against the man sent by God. That being said, David will now be passing around the collection basket.
