Wow, Dr. Laura gets it right when confronted by a race baiting caller. Media Matters is trying to create anti Dr. Laura puffery over the race baiting caller's tactics. If you click on this link and listen to the call, the race baiting caller at one point attempts to white wash all older people as being racist for not voting for Barack Obama.
You know Barack Obama, the FIRST PRESIDENT in possibly decades to freeze social security payments at the same level they were the prior year but then add a one time 250 dollar payment as a way to circumvent the reality that he actually has frozen social security at the same rate it was the prior year.
The only way Barack Obama can AVOID the label of being the first president in several decades to freeze social security benefits is if the 250 dollar "benefit" is given out annually anda social security benefit increase is resumed for the next fiscal year. According to the race baiter who called Dr. Laura's show, older people were "racist" if they did not vote for Barack Obama in 2008.
Lol, apparently our "good friends" over at Huffington Post are trying to fan the flames on this non issue as well. Can we say "Journolist, the 2010 edition? However, I will credit HP for also posting an editorial from Ofar Hutchinson that takes a more cerebral and mature approach to the situation.
In the meantime, PLEASE, I ASK ALL PUMA BLOGGERS TO CONTACT DR. LAURA'S SPONSORS AND SHOW SUPPORT FOR WHAT DR. LAURA SAID. THE LEVEL OF INSANITY OVER THIS ISSUE IS VERY DISCONCERTING to me. The call made by a race baiter to Dr. Laura is a complete non issue and the person who did call, "Jade", seemed very keen on trying to accuse Dr. Laura of racism and older folks of being racist as well.
Speaking of older folks, let us not forget Sarah Silverman's plea to get racist old folks to vote for Barack Obama in 2008.
I am appalled at the level of disrespect being meted out against older people in this country by Barack Obama supporters.
As for Dr. Laura, let us not forget that it was Dr. Laura who kept quiet during the 2008 presidential race while Oprah Winfrey spewed her narcissistic political bile at every turn, never once considering that just because a candidate was half african american did not necessarily mean they were actually ready to be president.
