Well Chris, I too forgot that he was black as well. Hell, if it wasn't for the fact that they played "Flash Light" by Parliament as Obama entered the building, I would have sworn he was just another asshole lying white politician. I think Chris Matthews' heart was in the right place in trying to express the fact that Obama has been around and visual enough that his race is overlooked. Unfortunately I think he was caught up in the moment and had a brain fart. From a white guys perspective I could understand why he would think that way; I really do. I'm just glad that he didn't make mention of Obama's ability to speak without a Negro dialect unless he chooses to.
QUESTION: So what did you think about the speech?
