These Folks Playing the race card is getting really old.
Even when Barack Obama does not want to get drawn into a race issue, he does. Like Obama does not have enough issue with Obamacare, the economy and his poll numbers. Now NY Gov. Paterson pulls another race card from the bottom of the deck.
What does NY Democratic Governor and Barack Obama have in common? They both “stupidly” used the race card to blame others. In the case of embattled NY Gov. Paterson, he blamed a racist media for trying to push him out of next years election. Paterson need only look in the mirror for his troubles as he has a 30% approval rating that is actually up from a once 18%. Patterson claimed that President Obama would be the next “victim” of the racially biased news media. Sadly, has it become with Democrats that if a black man is behind in the polls or losing an issue … it must be because of racism.
He said what? Earth to Paterson, the MSM is liberal, not racists
“The whole idea is to get me not to run in the primary,” Paterson complained on a morning radio show hosted by Daily News columnist Errol Louis.
He suggested that Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, the country’s only other African-American governor, also is under fire because of his race.
“We’re not in the post-racial period,” Paterson said.
“The reality is the next victim on the list – and you can see it coming – is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than trying to reform a health care system.”
Barack Obama, not wanting to have another “Beer Summit” quickly had his people respond to the NY Governors comments. Obama did not want to get dragged into another racism fiasco, hell he does a good enough job of that by himself, The One certainly did not need Paterson doing it for him.
Paterson blamed his political woes on racially slanted coverage and predicted the president would be the next “victim” of biased media.
Obama’s team delivered a pointed message to Paterson within hours of the morning broadcast.
Barack Obama has already learned his lesson about “stupidly” making racial comments where none exist. The response from the Obama White House kind of reminds me of a line from the movie, Animal House … They can’t call us the next victims, only we can call ourselves the next victims.
Otter: He can’t do that to our pledges!
Boon: Only we can do that to our pledges.
