One of Obama’s classmates challenges Barack to release his grades, offers a million dollars for them. He tells Matt Welch (yeah, he’s still around):
He had a lower average than me and he got into Harvard and I didn’t.
And so my answer is, has America really been unfair to minorities? No it hasn’t. It was unfair to me. A white butcher’s kid, whose father had no money, but nobody gave me a break. And do I have a chip on my shoulder? You’re damn right I do. And I represent millions and millions of poor people in this country who weren’t lucky enough to be poor and black, they were unlucky enough to be poor and white, and they can’t get into Harvard. So maybe that country Barack’s fighting for, he’s got the wrong country here. He’s been just fine in this country. The rest of us need someone to defend them….
Anyway my point is, for those of us in America who want to fight for talent being the determiner of who’s successful or not, I’m your representative. Obama’s the wrong representative. And for those who disagree, I say: I’m for affirmative action—I think the NBA should be 80 percent white.
WOW. I wish more people had the guts to say that out loud, because he does indeed speak for millions.
Hell, I say we elect THIS dude in ’12.
