From Susan Eisenhower’s Blog and definitely worth the read!

For more than fifteen years, I have regularly appeared in the media as a foreign policy expert.  I’ve always tried to be accessible to everyone from all ends of the political spectrum.  Citizen dialogue and education, I believe, are the cornerstones of a vibrant democracy.  Over the years, I have been interviewed by outlets of every ideological stripe, but recent experience tells me how far our public discourse has deteriorated.

In February of this year I announced my support for Barack Obama.  As a lifelong Republican I decided to support this Democratic contender because he has, I believe, the energy, the intellectual capability, as well as the temperament and the steadiness to lead this country during this perilous time.  Since then, I’ve appeared on many television and radio programs hosted by people who do not like Senator Obama.  Compared to my experiences over the years, these interlocutors have been aggressive and the subtexts of their questions have inappropriately implied that anyone who supports the Illinois Senator is either unpatriotic, uninformed, or simply a fool.

On top of this the McCain campaign has engaged in incendiary “Robo” calls and misleading brochures, which promote baseless personal smears.  John McCain says Obama is a socialist, and Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) actually suggested that Obama is a “Communist.”  This is nonsense.  Obama is advancing a tax policy that was first adopted by Republican President Teddy Roosevelt, and the Obama proposals do nothing more than return us to Reagan-era tax levels.

People who share traditional Republican values have nothing to fear from Senator Obama, that’s why other distinguished Republicans like General Colin Powell, Senator Lincoln Chafee, Congressman Jim Leach, Bush Press Secretary Scott McClellan, Reagan Chief of Staff Ken Duberstein, Bush Defense Policy Board official Ken Adelman, and the iconic conservative names of Buckley and Goldwater are now associated with Obama’s campaign.

We have had many chapters in American history when fear has gotten the better of us and “guilt by association” or “guilt by race, ethnicity or gender” has prevailed.  But we must be better than that.  In today’s fractured and challenging times, spreading false rumors is not only divisive, it is downright dangerous.  We will only survive if we pull together and unite as a nation.

As we vote on Tuesday, we should pause and look at our communities and be grateful that many fine, talented people want to serve our country in this period of dislocation and crisis.  We must shrug off the fear mongers who have tried to sell us an election season of devils and demons who don’t exist.

From http://www.boston.com/news/politics/politicalintelligence/2008/11/obama_extends_n.html

The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey of likely voters, Democrat Obama is ahead 53 percent to 46 percent. Among registered voters, Obama’s lead is even larger — 55 percent to 42 percent over Republican John McCain.

That lead is up 2 percentage points among likely voters and 3 among registered voters from two weeks ago.

The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points among likely voters and 3 points among registered voters.

The daily Diageo-Hotline tracking poll has Obama up 50 percent to 45 percent among likely voters. That poll was conducted over the same three days and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.

Southern Poverty Law Center is an amazing organization that once again is in the headlines for unfortunate reasons.
Their web site is extremely informative and certainly worth looking at even if you are not interested in donating to them.
They fight against all forms of prejudice and fight for the rights of everyone, especially the most vulnerable.
Truly worth checking out if you have never heard of them.

Dear Friend,

Over the last few days, we’ve been swamped with requests for information about the two neo-Nazi skinheads who planned a murderous rampage ending with the assassination of Barack Obama. We’ve been consulted by law enforcement because of our expertise.

We reported on our website that one of the skinheads involved was affiliated with a newly formed organization called the Supreme White Alliance (SWA).

The SWA is headed by a man named Steven Edwards, who is steeped in a violent culture of racial extremism. We’ve been following his activities for some time. You can find out more about Edwards in a report by ABC’s Nightline that aired last night.

The skinheads’ plot to kill Obama and murder other African Americans is a chilling reminder of the threat posed by these domestic terrorists.

Unfortunately, I fear we’re entering a dangerous period. Obama’s candidacy has aroused fierce passions among white supremacists. And during times of economic hardship, minorities are often targeted as scapegoats for our country’s problems.

We cannot afford to take threats like this lightly. With your help, we’re doing everything we can to track and expose violent racists — and we’ll continue providing the best intelligence available to law enforcement.

Thanks for being on our team. With your moral and financial support, we’ll continue this important fight against the forces of hate and intolerance.
