The only good thing about democrats using racism as a campaign strategy is that once and for all people will finally decide that they've had enough of it after being BOMBARDED by charges of racism for the last several years.

Here's just the latest bit of racial BS by the democrats, where they claim that opposition to obama (finally) scheduling his jobs speech for the same time as the Republican debate which was already on the calendar is "possibly" based on obama's skin color.

No, you can't make this stuff up. At least normal people can't. Unfortunately there are also democrats that can.

When they start playing the race card, you know they're holding a bad hand.

So, when that's all democrats do is play the race card, it must mean they're not even holding any cards.

Something many of us have suspected all along ...

The race card makes me sick. But then again people like Jessee Jackson wouldn't have anything to do if they didn't keep the race issue alive.

They call the race card but conveniently forget that Obama is half white.

As a non-American looking in from the outside, it does seem that Obama has more
opposition to anything he wants to do than any other president in history... and you have
to ask is race a factor in what we are seeing? Even the office of the president of the united
states does not seem to carry as much respect for a lot of americans since a black man
was elected.

Why does a person have to be a "white" failure, or a "black" failure? Why can't he just be a FAILURE? Like Obama.

I think the real racists are the "progressives," who want to take away from one group that is doing better than others, and give what was taken to those who haven't worked for it. That's racism.

Maybe if they just HAVE to have a black President, they should nominate Colin Powell. At least we would have an achiever with integrity and a resume in office instead of a complainer with no record (other than being a failure) at all.

More opposition than Bush, or even Clinton? Just research how many anti-Bush and Clinton threads there are on ATS as a tiny example.

Where were you for those 8 year periods?

That concept is total BS.

Do yourself a favor and don't fall for it. At least try and save your reputation and don't say it in public any longer.

The race card has been used more (by this administration and its synchophants) than the condom dispenser at the Kennedy compound.

What levels will these people sink to?

Sadly, they're pulling out all the stops just to keep this adminisration from imploding now. I shudder to think what awaits us in 2012.

I'll wait until I hear the speech before I decide if I oppose it or not.
Interesting, though, that I believe there might be people who will support the information in the speech, even before they listen to it. I wonder what that is base upon?

For a group that clams not to be racist, the right sometimes seems a little too defensive on the issue. The outrage always seems a little too manufactured. Take it as you will, but it does make me wonder sometimes.

No My Friend, You can not Make This Stuff Up,,,,

My husband was explaining to me how the Democrats have use this Race Card in the past, running TV commercials and radio commercials about with each Republican vote, A Black Church is burnt or A Black person is Killed.

I read this just yesterday:

That being said, I can now move on to Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind,, who recently said that members of the Tea Party movement would "love to see us [black Americans] as second-class citizens."

and from the same article it goes on to say:


"Some of them would love to see us hanging on a tree," Carson added.

So this is the Jest of the story:

So there it is: Members of the Tea Party movement would love nothing better than to see some black folks strung up from a tree, the way it was done in the bad ol' hang 'em high days in the South.

My Friend centurion1211, I have not tried to hijack your thread, I only wanted to add something I think is relevant.

Well he appears to be trying to make sense of a historical first...


The Senate Historical Office knows of no instance in which Congress refused the president permission to speak before a Joint Session of Congress,” said Betty K. Koed, an associate historian for the U.S. Senate.

Permission to speak in a joint session is given by resolution of the House and Senate, and arrangements are made through the leadership offices of each chamber.”


www.addictinginfo.org...


What makes this President different from the other 43? Somehow deserving of historically unprecedented disrespect emenating from a senate that does not include a single African-American?

Hmmmmmmmm.

Cuz the alternative is that they believe they will significantly lose viewership of thier (one of several) debates and that implies that they think the average American would much rather listen to the President propose bi-partisan solutions than the GOP contenders compete on stage trying to one up eachother on who hates gay people the most.

My suspicion is a little of both...threatened by the President and comfortable showing him historically unprecedented disrespect because of the color of his skin.

They might as well claim he was a Muslim Extremist or born in Africa...oh..that's right...they already did that.

I am sure people won't think too hard about it...Maybe just scream "race card" without ever thinking about the facts, details or the literal historical disrespect that has been shown to our President by a party that regularly also expresses it's disdain for civil rights.

Just as excessive use of the pulling of the so called "race card", the constant self victimization and immature whining about "people pulling the race card" , has the exact same effect. This too is getting lame. Especially in light of WORLD History as it pertains to those doing the whining. You think about that okay ? 8 % and shrinking so lose the attitude.

Seriously.

If I have to be labeled, I'm a Libertarian; but simply being opposed to Obama's policies is apparently enough to be labeled a racist, and I for one an SICK OF IT!

It's ALL we hear, and it is the only defense offered by Obama's diehard supporters for his failures. Wouldn't you get a bit defensive after 4 years of hearing nothing but lies that cut to the core of who we are as human beings? Racism has nothing to do with Obama's low poll ratings; they are solely due to the fact that he is the most incompetent President in memory, exceeding even Jimmy Carter in idiocy. At least Carter was a Nuclear Engineer. If Obama has ever accomplished anything, we won't know for a long time because he sealed all of his records.

I wonder how many of the people who cry "Racism" voted for Obama because he's black? I'll bet if any honest polls ever came out, the results would shock many people (or maybe not.)

Seriously, That's the best you can come up with????

Democrats (wrongfully) accuse the crap out of people for being racists for several years, and now THEY (Republicans) are the bad guys because they say they don't like it and are tired of it?

1,000 times
for that one ...

So - using your "logic" - maybe democrats are complaining too much about being called communists/socialists, so there must be something to the claim?

Seriously, see my post above to understand the ridiculousness of your post.
