Neil Cavuto interviews Don Imus on August 26, 2008. Imus says he’ll vote for McCain but he won’t commit suicide or move to Canada if Obama wins.
He thinks Barack Obama is a phony and an empty suit and so do I. Because, you see, he was not willing to give Imus the benefit of any doubt and was one of the very first of the self-righteous to jump up and to call for Imus to be fired. He was not willing to take anything into the context of his life and the good works he had done, but YET he wanted us all to consider Jeremiah Wright’s words in the context of his life and works.
Nor was he willing or able to realize that this was a job and a profession of 30 plus years in broadcasting and that Imus had a contract signed with CBS only a few months prior to the “incident” that specifically called for him to be outrageous and controversial. Yet Mr. Obama wants us to consider the “genius” of his buddy, Ludacris, in the context of his career and talent even though Ludicris has written and has said some outrageous and offensive things.
So, therefore, I judged Barack Obama as having no character or insight, no sense of fair play. And, yes, a phony and an empty suit.
In spite of that Imus also expresses his feelings at the spectacular sight of an African American woman standing before the Democratic National Convention, and the country, to speak about her husband who is about to be nominated by the democratic party as a candidate for President. I, too, am in awe of this and it was a touching moment to be sure.
I am very proud of the progress we have made as a country. It is a historical moment and time. Only in America.
And, by the way, I am voting for McCain, too.
