Barack Obama Playing the Race Card from the Bottom of the Deck … Shocker … Aren’t We All “typical white persons”?
Obama playing the race card … this is new how?
Obama’s most recent comments regarding Republican scare tactics are just one of the many of a long slew of statements from the Democratic chosen one, Barack Obama. Obama’s campaign wants to accuse McCain and Republicans of racism because of the Britney Spears and Paris Hilton ads? Oh really? If one begins to define everything against them as racial, one really must look to the accuser and ask what is tin their heart and mind. Obama and his campaign may want to look in the mirror and check out the glass racist house they live in before they start throwing stones. It was not Republicans Mr. Obama who forced you to be a part of Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years and listen to hate. But then again, some how you were never there when it occurred.
Obama’s statement yesterday about Republican scare tactics is merely the latest in a string of statements in which he suggests that certain Americans are intrinsically racist, and those Americans aren’t just confined to political opponents
His profligate insinuations of racism now are far beyond unseemly. As the possible next President of the United States, he needs to be called on it.
his grandmother was a “typical white person”
Obama “throwing her under the bus” for political expediency
working class voters focused largely on the condescension in his claim that such folks “cling to guns or religion.”
Obama stated he“doesn’t look like all those other Presidents on those dollar bills.’’ This may be the first correct thing that Obama has said … he does not look like those other Presidents on those dollar bills. Obama would have to act, appear and be Presidential to do that. Some thing that he is far from.
Take a good look at this Obama comment and ask yourself if its not racist? Gee, what is Obama referring to, that he doesn’t wear a wig like George Washington? Or he doesn’t have a beard like Lincoln? Hardly! Obama could not possible mean that it is because they are white now could he?
Mr. Obama called Mr. McCain on the ploy, saying, quite rightly, that the Republicans are trying to scare voters by pointing out that he “doesn’t look like all those other Presidents on those dollar bills.’’
John McCain has every right to state that Obama and his campaign are playing the race card. If the truth hurts … tough!!! Americans need to understand that if they are against Obama or do not intend to vote fro him … it doesn’t make them a racist as the liberal media and Obama’s campaign would have you to believe. Obama is no different than Al Gore, John McCain or John Edwards who many did not vote for. These three were not elected because they were black … they were not elected because they were too liberal.
“I’m sorry to say that it is. It’s legitimate,” McCain told CNN’s John King. “And there’s no place in this campaign for that. There’s no place for it and we shouldn’t be doing it.”
Earlier Thursday, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis lashed out at the Democratic presidential candidate over his comments that Republicans are making an issue of his race.
“Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck. It’s divisive, negative, shameful and wrong,” Davis said in a statement sent to reporters.

Barack Obama’s camp initially denied the remark was a reference to Obama’s race. Are these people capable of remotely telling the truth without be forced to? How obvious could it possible be that the remark was in reference to race. It is safe to say that they will spin anything and cannot tell the truth and their intentions.
Sen. Barack Obama’s chief strategist conceded that the Democratic presidential candidate was referring to his race when he said Republicans were trying to scare voters by suggesting Obama “doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”
UPDATE II: The Gateway Pundit says it as plain and simple as it it … Obama Camp Concedes “Dollar Bill” Remark Was About His Race… Duh!
How pathetic and typical that some of the media covering Obama’s campaign did not think that he played the race card. Folks like Andrea Mitchell at MSNBC make it clear as day that they will carry Obama’s water no matter what. Or is it Kool-Aide?
