The Race Card

Well, it was predictable.  Obama played the race card:

“We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run.  They’re going to try to make you afraid.  They’re going to try to make you afraid of me.  (laughter)  They’re gonna…. They’re going to say, “You know what, he’s — he’s — he’s young, inexperienced, and, uh, uh, he’s got a funny name.  Did I mention he’s black? “

Nice, huh?  Now, any criticism of him is going to be deemed racial. Funny though in that it was the Democrats who first started using the race card with him.  From the LA times saying he was not “black” enough to Bill Clinton playing the card during the primary in NC to Joseph Biden saying Obama was clean and articulate.

I guess maybe I should have did a moratorium on this a while back but can we please have a moratorium on playing the race card, Mr. Obama, during this campaign?

    Yes he did play the race card — very well I might add. He sold himself as a black man of mixed heritage clearly down playing the white side of him to many. Hey, I would have done the same. America sees him as a black man, not the child of a mixed marriage. Trust me, Obama is black enough.
