When you can’t run on Obama’s record … Use the Race Card.
The Executive Director of the (CBC), Congressional Black Caucus, states that opposition to President Barack Obama is racism. How pathetic that the CBC would play the race card and use that as an excuse for the failed polices of Barack Obama. Angela Rye even went so far as to claim that Conservatives using the term “cool” is racist. Good grief.
Angela Rye, Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus, argued that President Obama has struggled during his first term due to racially-motivated opposition from conservatives who dislike having a black president.
“This is probably the toughest presidential term in my lifetime,” Rye said during CSPAN’s Q&A yesterday. “I think that a lot of what the president has experienced is because he’s black. You know, whether it’s questioning his intellect or whether or not he’s Ivy League. It’s always either he’s not educated enough or he’s too educated; or he’s too black or he’s not black enough; he’s too Christian or not Christian enough. There are all these things where he has to walk this very fine line to even be successful.”
She said that “a lot” of conservative opposition is racially-charged, citing the use of the word “cool” in an attack ad launched by Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS superPAC.
Really, questioning Obama’s intellect and education is racism? Because George W. Bush was never called stupid by the Left. When one becomes President, they becomes a target of political opposition. That has been the case with every President, Obama is nothing special. The only difference is that He and his supportive minions cannot take the heat and resort to using the race card.
The CBC has done a great disservice to actual racism. Does racism exist, of course. However, one might say there is just as much reverse racism as there is racism in the traditional sense. One thing is for certain, Americans are not opposed to Obama because of racism, they are against his policies because they are a disaster for families and for America. Oh no, but these lazy thinking individuals would rather use the race card than explain how under Barack Obama there is a record number of people on food stamps, a continued +8% of Americans are unemployed, 18% underemployed, a failed $787 billion stimulus plan, an unwanted Obamacare law, a failed green energy government subsided plan and an out of control $15.7 trillion national debt.
This is not racism, its every Americans right of freedom and liberty to express opposition as afforded by the US Constitution. What is racism … as stated at Sister Toldja, “the real racialist here is the one who sees race behind every tree and bush.”
