Barry O plays the race card, nurses his grudges [Karl]
The general election is in November, but for
Barack Obama Barry O, it is not too soon to start dealing the race card:
They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?
He made similar comments to his fatcat San Francisco donors in conjunction with his claim that people in small-towns in flyover country are bitter and cling to their God and their Guns for economic reasons.
One might have hoped that locking down the delegates necessary to secure the Democratic presidential nomination might have resulted in some personal growth.Ã‚Â Instead, he is still nursing a grudge over all of theÃ‚Â slights he thinks he received from Hillary Clinton and her supporters and remaking the Presidential seal in his campaign’s image, while thinking everyone is too stupid to notice.
But instead of stepping up to theÃ‚Â gravity of his own historic achievement, it appears thatÃ‚Â
Obama Barry O is going to stick with his gameplan of making any mention of his threadbare resume (and equally threadbare public accomplishments) or even his name grist forÃ‚Â his mill of racial grievance.
Make no mistake: the man who admits he looks like Urkel is soundingÃ‚Â about as post-racial asÃ‚Â the Rev. Al Sharpton.Ã‚Â Or about as post-racial as someone who spent the last 20 years under the spiritual tutelage of the race-baiting Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Fr. Michael Pfleger.Ã‚Â Someone with that background ought to have some humility when it comes to dealing the race card, but he has chosenÃ‚Â it as his opening gambit.Ã‚Â If John McCain and the GOP allowsÃ‚Â someone who increasingly sounds like someone struggling to suppress his own prejudice to frame the general election in this manner, they will deserve to lose the election even more than they already do.
Update: I await Barry’s denunciation of Baldilocks:
Most people couldn’t care less about your name and your color, Senator Obama. They fear being lead by you because you have no substantive legislative record, you’re a chronic liar and, after explicitly stating that you choose your friends carefully, you have repeatedly and systematically made friends with people who hate this country.
Ouch.Ã‚Â But ifÃ‚Â Barry keeps it up, what voters will notice that his skin isÃ‚Â as thin as his record.
Update x2: Insta-lanche!
