"They are spreading fear and they're trying to see that the first president who looks like me -- fails."
"People look at the United States as a country that has changed it's way and elected someone from Kenya and Kansas, I'll put it like that."
BR> KABC’s Michael Linder was the only broadcast reporter at Thursday night’s town hall health care debate at Wade AME Church when Rep. Diane Watson [D] made some astonishing comments including claims that those opposed to health care reform are attempting to destroy a president “who looks like me.”
Later, Watson praised heath care in Fidel Castro’s Cuba — and, it seemed, the Cuban revolution itself.
The statements aired exclusively Thursday night on KABC’s The John Phillips Show.
