[ You’re a racist if you regard the color of a man’s skin – either favorably or disfavorably – rather than considering the man himself, his ideals, his character, and so on. It is not racist to call Obama a liar, for example, but rather a question of empirical fact… ]
Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman said Tuesday, “We’re going to be in a lot of trouble if we don’t reelect” Barack Obama.
Appearing on PBS’s Tavis Smiley show, Freeman added, “Because people on the other side of the fence scare me”:
“I think that we did a really good thing when we elected Barack Obama. I read his books, they read his books. He is absolutely and totally qualified for the job. He has proven himself to be not only qualified for the job, but very good at it. The things that he’s managed to get accomplished in the face of so much push back is amazing. And I think, this is Morgan Freeman’s personal thought, we’re going to be in a lot of trouble if we don’t reelect him because people on the other side of the fence scare me.”
