You're completely distorting everything that Forest Whitaker said…Here's a partial transcript:
Okay, Seth, let’s analyze what Whitaker said, and relate that to the Obama campaign:
“When you say to yourself ‘okay, I have to make a choice right now because unemployment is rampant’.”
Vote for Obama because, if elected, Obama will put an end to unemployment.
How’s he going to do that? Intern everyone who’s out of work and put them on a Federal work farm?
“We’re at war,”
How will Obama put an end to war? Hasn’t he and Biden said that we should redeploy to Afghanistan, then invade Pakistan to finish the job with al-Qaida?
So even if he ends US involvement in Iraq (which isn’t the same thing as ending the war), he wants to escalate the war in Afghanistan and open up a new front in Pakistan.
And what if we suffer another attack on the homeland while he’s president?
“The economy is falling”
How is Obama going to raise a falling economy? By increasing the Federal deficit and hiking the tax rate for employers?
“And you take it away from this whole concept of bailouts and these large amounts of money that it’s difficult for us to really get our minds around.”
Uh…Didn’t Obama support the bailouts?
“And you think about it like this; I got a call yesterday from – I can’t say he’s a friend, I’d worked with him before; he was a manager in my business – he called me because he had lost his home.”
Vote for Obama and he’ll restore that man’s house to him.
“He lost his home and he had lost his car.”
Vote for Obama and he’ll restore that man’s car to him.
“He already went through a bad divorce, so he was talking to me about his children.”
Vote for Obama and he’ll restore that man’s wife to him.
“I mean, I’m here in Michigan because, honestly, of the states in this nation – it has some of the largest problems. The unemployment here is a little less than it is in Detroit – it’s 22 percent of people living under poverty. Ten percent, one in ten people not having a job – being unemployed. In Detroit it’s 35 percent poverty.”
Vote for Obama and he’ll restore full employment to Michigan. How’s he going to do that? Oh, yes, the Federal work farm.
“50 percent of kids are living in poverty.”
And what’s the cause? Doesn’t that have a lot to do with out-of-wedlock birth and single motherhood?
“That’s something we can’t allow. We can’t allow it.”
How is Obama going to disallow that? Is he going to force promiscuous men to wear rubbers? Will he institute the Prophylactic Police to issue and enforce the rigorous use of compulsory condoms?
“I read a paper when I was coming over here that said there are 10,000 homeless people in Detroit alone. That’s not counting the state itself, or where we are. How can we feel that we are living in a civilized society when we can watch like, sit on the streets not begin able to survive or take care of themselves? How is it that we consider ourselves civilized if we allow these things to happen?”
Isn’t homelessness often due to drug addiction? How is Obama going to prevent junkies from pursuing a habit that hinders them from holding down a job? Or will he mandate free housing for all junkies?
Why is it that Democrats make ludicrous claims for Obama that Republicans don’t make for McCain?
“It’s going to make it possible for my grandkids and your children, and all of us to have a decent life.”
And if Obama is elected, palm trees will sprout in Antarctica, sugarplums will blossom from streetlights, and the limbs of amputees will spontaneously regenerate.
