Could John Edwards be any more clueless?
Edwards complained that Bush refusing to speak before a hostile, partisan crowd at the NAACP meeting was "very unhealthy" What is really unhealthy is this mentality that the NAACP/Jesse Jackson alone can speak for and be spoken to on behalf of black Americans. Bush was absolutely right to not speak before that crowd and endure boos from a bunch of extortionists. Will John Kedwards be speaking at the Christian Coalition convention? At the NRA convention? I think not. The NAACP is nothing more than a shill for liberal blacks and woe to the black that dares stray from that party line (see succesful black role models J.C. Watts, Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell). Hooray for Bush for taking his message to black people directly rather than going to those who profit from racial division.
