Well it’s started, and it will only get worse. This morning on the Obama reelection network, MSNBC, Melissa Harris-Perry and her guests are bemoaning the fact that Obama is seen through the lens as the “first black president” and what an extra burden that is. Evidently they have forgotten how they celebrated that fact just 4 years ago, and the fact that Obama has taken every opportunity to remind people of that fact – “if I had a son he would look like Trayvon”, so why the disconnect? Obama is slipping amongst “white voters” so it must be because of racism right? After all, white unemployment is less than black unemployment so according to MSNBC, white voters should be flocking to the polls to vote for this President and if they don’t, well then they’re just ungrateful racists.
Yesterday, Sam Donaldson chimed in to support the noton that the recent heckling on behalf of the daily caller news reporter was because ……… wait for it ……. Obama is black. No other president has ever had to deal with rude press reporters before right Sam? It seems to me Sam that you perfected the “rude press” persona, so it seems a little disingenuous for you to ascribe mal intent to other reporters following your lead.
This is going to be a vey interesting political summer folks, and the democrats will play every card they can to keep Obama in office. The race card will be just one of them, but it will trump all others.
Happy Father’s day to all you dad’s out there!
As an addition to this thread, in my opinion we will have a very hard time moving this country forward, if we continue to wallow in the ethnic, race and financial divide that democrats, and Obama have us mired in. We are all children of God, regardless of our skin color, with the same needs and wants for ourselves and our family, so let’s stop listening to those who want to divide us for their political futures, and let’s start focusing on common sense policies that will benefit all of us, and not just a few.
