Folks like "lolo" keep accusing me of being a closeted Obamaholic, and I keep telling you folks that I am not. Now I probably could be, but every time I even consider it, something comes up and reminds me not to drink the O-Aid.
As you all know Pennsylvania is now ground zero in the dumbocratic race for President. So I wasn't surprised that the "O" man reached out to certain union leaders here in Philly. I am willing to forget the fact that for years these building trade unions, kept qualified blacks out of big paying construction jobs, by demanding that they go through an apprentice program. Forget the fact that these poor individuals had no clue, and that they would never be able to get a sponsor. (But I seriously digress)
So the "O" man calls Pat Gillespie, a powerful business trades Manager here in town. And according to one of my local hometown papers (The Daily News), this is how the conversation went down: Gillespie-"The black guys are with you but I can't get the white guys" Obama- "Tell them I'm half white..tell them I am Irish." Gillespie-"If I tell them you're Irish, I lose the Italians". Ha ha ha ha. OK Gillespie said he was just kidding..but....I don't know "O" man.
And here is another reason why I know that I am not a real Obamaholic:
As much as I despise this campaign Hillary is running, if she wins the dumbocratic nomination, I am holding my nose and voting for her. Period. A real Obamaholic can't do that. They despise Hillary ( and often with a good reason to), but sorry, my right to vote is serious business, and I ain't sitting on the sidelines come November.
