"Yes, Virginia, there is a Louise Lucas."
Louise Lucas (D) is a Virginia state senator from Portsmouth, who is also part of of what President Obama calls his "Truth Team". (I get e-mails from them all the time. I'm still waiting for the truth part.) Interviewed on a local radio show this week, Ms Lucas had this to say about Mitt Romney. (You have to go past the 2-minute mark to hear her tell the interviewer that Romney appeals to people who don't like black people-especially black presidents or something like that.)
Hope and change, truth and a post-racial president
Here is what I think is appropriate. I think it would be appropriate for President Obama to publicly denounce these comments and have Ms Lucas removed from the so-called Truth Team. Then, perhaps, he can still claim to be president of all the people.
