Why A Son of the South Votes for Obama

My Dearest Uncle Howard, 

The photos are placed here to honor your Brother Huland's and your war service to our nation in both the Pacific and in Europe. Our Southern family will never forget that service. Remember I am a son of the South, and I was raised in the best traditions of my region by a family that endured many troubles and challenges and problems including divorce and serious illness. My family got through it all bravely retaining some measure of dignity. As a result of my grandfather's work for the Federal government, and my grandmother's work for the Tennessee State government, and my mother's childcare and home help, we were able to survive and even prosper as a family. That prosperity allowed me to graduate college at a great Southern institution, Tulane University, in New Orleans. Later that education brought me a career that has carried me across the planet and introduced me to incredible people and ideas rarely considered in my Southern homeland. I am deeply reverent and thankful for those amazing opportunities.  

I am going to vote for President Obama. 

One sure reason I am going to vote for President Obama is to make amends in some small way for my ancestors's treatment of black people over the past two hundred years. All Southern white people and our ancestors have been part of this:  We shipped black people in from Africa. We enslaved them. We bred with them. We fought and lost an unbelievably cruel and horribly murderous civil war to keep them enslaved. Then we disenfranchised them from voting in any meaningful way. On whim we lynched any who opposed our sadistic agenda. We accused any black dissidents of being "communists" or "fascists" or "terrorists" even though black people sacrificed their lives beside us in war after war, both cold and hot, to protect our United States. It took a democratic President Truman to allow some small measure of equality in the US Army and Navy and Marines. It took the US Army and the National Guard under orders from the last helpful republican President Ike to allow black people to attend our schools. Or to buy food in our restaurants. Or to swim in our public pools. Or to shop in our stores. Or to drink water from the same public fountain. Or to ride in equal places on our busses. 

So after all we get a Harvard educated, brilliant President Obama elected. 

But for some distorted reason, we got a congress partly managed by a few with the same tragic and criminal sentiments that gave us the above mockeries of our democratic nation. Recall the republican leadership motto, prompted by the woeful loser John McCain, and the myopic, richest-man-in-the-US-senate McConnell and the egoist house republican, tanning booth Boehner. "We will not rest until we have gotten rid of Obama!" They all chanted that like a Sunday school prayer until some huckster like the money-power-mad Rove cautioned them to shut up. "You'll lose the votes that way, so quiet down. Here's how you can make a good sound bite for TV that is code for the same thing," he certainly told them. And they sat on their hands while President Obama and his staff dealt with the gigantic international banks that skinned the American people and our Federal Government for hundreds of billions of dollars. That same congressional gang declared that our Federal government should not pay it's debts. Therefore our Federal government's credit rating fell and your credit card interest went up. Lately that gang wants to throw more hundreds of billions of dollars down the drain with more military attacks on any loud mouthed hawker in a turban who condemns our nation and our democracy on Al Jazeera TV. Then they say Obama caused all of this. No question, that is a lie of the worst order. And you and all Southern people truly know it in your souls and in your minds. 

That is another safe reason I will vote for Obama. 

It is simple. Liars like that gang disgust me, and their lies destroy the good works and dreams of our nation. So think about how you wish this nation to be down the road a few decades. Do we want a business-based, remote, uncaring government dedicated to the revenues of a few giant companies and the egos of a few self-involved, fast-talking thugs? Or do we want a government that cares about protecting the regular people like you and me from injustice and attack from home and abroad. 

Obama's African-American ancestors endured the worst oppression and cruelest burdens imaginable by our white society. Now the Obama family survives and prospers. Yes, there will be troubles and challenges and problems for our nation just like any Southern family. Just like any regular American family. 

President Obama has clearly shown again and again and again that he has the right stuff to make us a better family and a better nation. 

This is why there is no other choice. Vote for President Obama. 

Respectfully and lovingly your nephew, 

The Obama Family

CHAIRMAN MR. ROVE• I know you like him, but he just looks too much like that little stiff-necked queen, Romney.

MRS. CALLISTA GINGRICH• He's smooth cute. When Newt and I were there last summer we went swimming at the beach. He's b-ball tall and he's got a body made for the girls. Far better than Scott Brown. Vanity Fair would love him to do a partial spread.

MR. DAVID KOCH• It's not just that. He's young enough to serve two terms and then he can run for Governor of Michigan or someplace, and then maybe even a Senate seat.

MR. CHARLES KOCH• Yeah, I like him, too. And he would be able to kick in some money to the campaign himself. Romney is costing a fortune in TV time and they bill me for jet fuel and cheap hookers. And don't tell me that Rupert and James are hurting now because of all that crap the parliament has dug

CHAIRMAN MR. ROVE• There's a lot dirt out there on everybody. We've been able to hold the lid on CNN and Blitzer for the time being. But that kike Blitzer's demanding a department chair. Maybe you and Chas could get old Wolfie a place at CATO?

MR. DAVID KOCH• Sure, whatever Karl. I'll do it for you... but I don't want his type in the cathedral. You know what that little hair-faced twit did? He said I haven't paid taxes since 1965. Who cares anyway since that schmuck in Treasury let

I'll pay top dollar for the Blitzer video! Remember Alsop... I want him in my pocket just like the KGB had Alsop. Hmmm, KGB PAC. Koch Gets Best PAC. What do you think, Charles?

CHAIRMAN MR. ROVE• Come on. Get focus guys. Cally, what about the wife? What did Mayor-For-Life Bloomberg tell you about her?

MRS. CALLISTA GINGRICH• Asma is a doll. She worked for J.P. Morgan as Bashie's bagman we think. She was born in England... the southern ladies will just looove the accent. And Bloomie said she has looks like a fashion model. That's gold in New York.

CHAIRMAN MR. ROVE• The guy has got a great military record. He sends terrorists to meet allah in flaming hells. He's bombed them wherever they come out of their mole holes. No quarter. It's real war for him. No mamby pamby. Just action. What was that town over there he burned up? Homus, I think. We should get him a bronze star for that.

MR. DAVID KOCH• I see he's good about small government. Only needs a well equipped army and things get done. No taxes needed. The best for business and the American dream.

MR. CHARLES KOCH• We can dig our mines wherever we want. No EPA bull. Or union bull. Davey get me another glass of Macallan's please. Karl, do you want to fly over to Miami with us? I'm going to talk to Marco and hang for a few days with real men.

CO-CHAIRMAN REINCE PRIEBUS• What about the citizenship? He's listed as being born over there.

CHAIRMAN MR. ROVE• Born in Houston in 1966. We have the county records being certified now. His Dad was there at the exact same time cutting a deal with Exxon. But if our people don't like the look of that we can arrange a record at the USAF base in Turkey. Lurch McCain was born on a base in Panama you know. Lurch made us pick up Palin, for god's sake! We're still trying to shut her up. That harpy hustler lost it for Lurch. Little Barack Sambo yanked victory from the jaws of defeat and Lurch did it by falling for

CO-CHAIRMAN REINCE PRIEBUS• Let's do it! When can I meet him? I can't wait! Can you Cally?

MRS. CALLISTA GINGRICH• Bashie's my new great guy! I can't wait to invite him to hear me play.

CO-CHAIRMAN REINCE PRIEBUS• Play what Cally? The old lickey face?

MRS. CALLISTA GINGRICH• Noooo, Reince! I play the French Horn for the orchestra downtown.

CO-CHAIRMAN REINCE PRIEBUS• Yeah, like a French kiss no doubt you petite hussy!

CHAIRMAN MR. ROVE• You two stop it! We've got a ton of work to do. Here's a photo. Get used to the look and the smile! Meeting adjourned for now. Think about how we spin him for the Mid-West dreamers.
