Mayhem at FOX News over Sen. Obama

OK, another post about Obama. Two videos provided by the Huffington Post one with a FOX News personality walking off the set over some comments made by two other FOX News personalities and then Chris Wallace host of FOX News Sunday taking these two personalities to task over their comments.

Here's another perspective on this from The Carpetbagger Report...
But to suggest that Obama’s off-hand remark is somehow a major scandal seems wildly excessive. Looking at the context, it’s clear Obama was not denigrating all white people. Referring to his grandmother, the senator said:
“She’s extremely proud,” he said. “The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she’s a typical white person who — if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know — there’s a reaction that’s been bred into our experiences that don’t go away, and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that’s just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it. And what makes me optimistic is you see each generation feeling a little less like that.”
“Obama basically called all white people racist”? C’mon.
