Obama: I Don’t Believe In Divisive Racial Politics. “One of my core principles is that I will never engage in a politics in which I’m trying to divide people or make them less than me because they look different or have a different religion,” Obama said. “That’s a core principle, that’s not something I would violate.”
“Unfortunately, too many politicians, they’re just climbing the ladder but they don’t know why, and when they get there then they’re not very effective leaders,” he explained.
Such politicians, Obama explained, were subject to the temptations of corruption and willing to give up anything to stay in power.
“That’s when you lose your way, right?” Obama said. “You have to be willing to lose something for your principles, you have to be willing to lose an election.”
Whereupon, Barack Obama burst into flames. Those little steel ball bearings in his left hand were all that was left.
