Love vs. Truth
Ok, how about these apples?
Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States, has called out some of the more egregious, hateful criticism of Barack Obama as racist.
We know the Republicans have to call this bunk, but it appears the Democrats are also joining in. They seem to be running from Carter in droves.
The Dems think they are taking "the high road", but at what cost? They love their President -- or, at the very least, they love their Party -- regardless, they are being disingenuous.
Racism is at play in the national discourse. See the picture of Obama as a witch doctor; take note of accusations of the birthers; take note of those saying he's a Muslim; take note of Joe Wilson's recent outburst (the same man who told Strom Thurmond's bi-racial daughter she should've kept her "shameful secret" private...after Strom had already died).
I can understand why the Republicans don't want to go down the "racist" road, but the Dems who say "no, no, no" do so for what -- for love or truth?
They do it for neither, unfortunately. They know the truth, and yet they deny it. Does their "love" -- for all the right reasons -- justify the verbal gymnastics?
I don't think it does. What do you think?

Reason: the addition of the word "for"
