Post-Racial Obama Plays the Race Card

Rate this post

Does anyone remember that during the ’08 election year, candidate Obama was sold to America as the “post-racial” president-to-be who would “heal” America of this country’s original sin, bind the wounds, erase the scars, and we would all fall into a collective embrace and sing kumbaya? 
If you bought that Big Lie, the joke’s on you! For ever since he put up his shoes on the 19th-century Resolute desk of the Oval Office, the Punk has only further exploited racial divisions.
Yesterday, looking ahead to the November elections, the Punk was in campaign mode and essentially writes off white men, saying “It will be up to each of you to make sure that the young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women, who powered our victory in 2008, stand together once again.”
All “white men” who had voted for the Punk in 2008, the One now wants you NOT to vote for him. Got that? LOL

Ben Smith of Politico notes that turning out the “surge” voters — who turned out for the first time in 2008 to back Obama, but who sat out gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia last year — has become the Democrats’ central pre-occupation for the midterm elections, and the new Democratic effort to nationalize the election around Obama and his agenda mark an attempt to energize those voters. 
David Freddoso of the Washington Examiner wryly observes that “Of course it would be unthinkable for a Republican to call on old, white guys to come out and help him in the midterms.”
Freddoso also points out that the real story is that Obama is trying to win at the margins instead of at the center of the political spectrum. As the center abandons his party, he appeals to his base to make up the difference. And while the young (18-29 years old) voted 66% for Obama, up from 54% for John Kerry four years earlier, they are a notoriously volatile segment of the electorate. If they do NOT turn out in big numbers, the Demonrats will be toast this November.

  1. This is suppose to be the post racial president?
    For all you geniuses that voted for this clown (especially you White liberals and Independents) Obama just told you to “get bent”he don’t need you anymore.
    Well as the old saying goes “you get what you pay for”.

  2. Steve I do believe by November there will be a few million “nana nana booboos” to go around. With a few boo hoos when we are done.

  3. It’s a clever table that he sets (but not really). He takes no responsibility for anything:
    0:13-0:33 –
    “Despite the challenges WE INHERITED.”
    “When I took office, our economy was in crisis.”
    “Our standing in the world was diminished.”
    “Our healthcare system wasn’t working”
    “Bad behavior on Wall Street was being rewarded.”
    0:33 “BECAUSE OF YOU, we were able to…”
    1:11 – “A few months ago..we asked YOU to help us set our prioroties for 2010, and tell us how you thought we could win elections..”
    1:29 – “So that’s what we’re going to do.”
    He can’t be pinned with anything bad that happens, it was all inherited from Bush! He can’t be accused of Racial Politics…it’s what “they” told him he needed to do to win elections! C’mon! He’s just “reconnecting.”

  4. During the ’08 campaign, he also played the race card: “I don’t LOOK like the other presidents.” Post racial my foot!
    Hopefully some folks have wised up for the next election.
    In pace, ut sapiens, aptarit idonea bello

  5. Call ACORN… they’ll need the multiple-registered cemetary vote again!
