You know what happens when the president of the world’s superpower (not for long, though–I give China 30 years tops) says something and then takes it back?
He looks weak.
And makes us look weak in the process.
Told you he was empty suit, all.
We all wanted a minority president; there’s no question. It’s a triumph. The country was conceived in the worst kind of sin and it says something that we don’t care about race the way we used to.
But you don’t just elect a black man, or a woman like Hillary, simply because of minority status. You elect people to govern based on their degree of competency and track record. Everything about this guy said “incompetent” from the start. It was obvious to anyone considering him as a whole entire human being as opposed to just looking at his skin color.
Emote less. Think more.
