… Would Republican and Conservative voters support a president who pursued an agenda of taking money from the productive and using it to buy votes from the unproductive, who lost Iraq to fanatical terrorists, who stacked the courts with far left judicial activists, who used the IRS to target is political enemies, who bypassed Congress and the Constitution to rule by executive order, who sought to destroy American wages by importing cheap illegal immigrant labor, who sought to make energy prices “skyrocket” by regulating coal and fossil fuels, who ran guns to Mexican drug gangs, and who spent every weekend on the golf course… if he were a white guy.
I cannot see anyone from the right or center-right supporting such a president.
So where do the Democrats get off claiming all opposition to Obama is based on skin color?
For anybody to say there is nothing that is racial about some of the animus that is being expressed by Barack Obama, you just not telling the truth. The fact of the matter is, we know that with a lot of people, I don’t care what he does he is not going to be acceptable because of his skin color.” – Democrat Congressman James Clyburn
And he is not alone in this sentiment. A partial list of leftists who claim opposition to Obama’s policies is based on racism includes Jacob Weisberg of Slate, Jimmy Carter, Frank Rich and Paul Krugman of the New York Times, Democrat Congressmen Jim Moran and Andre Carson, Katrina Vandenheuval of The Nation, and, of course, Keith Olbermann and the Washington Post.
We just care about his terrible policies; it’s the other guys who are obsessed with his race.
