    Which part of objecting and disagreeing with policy is racists in nature? I'm not sure that it can be.
    If it focuses on policy, I agree. But when the personal attacks go beyond reason, depending on what they are, there might be.

    Many of the policy based disagreements, challenges and opposition have been falsely and wrongly accused as being racist in nature, resulting in much of the poisoning of the congressional well (i.e. cooperation).

    So who's actually, and continually, playing the race card?
    Biased Lame Stream Media (BLMS), from administration flunkies all the way up to Attorney General.

    That's really poor form.

    I'd have to see specifics to respond. You show a certain bias in your language, so give me an example.

    OK. Holder specifically.

    “There's a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that's directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder told ABC. “You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There's a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there's a racial animus."

    'If you object to our policies, you are a racist'.

    Attorney General Eric Holder played the infamous race card while speaking before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network on Wednesday.

    Holder told the audience that he’s proud of the significant strides and lasting reforms his department has achieved “even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity”

    Holder then implies he and President Obama are encountering a different type of “treatment” from House Republicans due to their race.

    “You look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House Committee. It had nothing to do with me. Forget about that. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?” Holder asked.

    'They are objecting to my policies' and are racists. Waa Waa Waa. And this to the racist, race baiting and race hustling Al Sharpton’s National Action Network group.

    The Biased Lame Stream Media is not any better.

    Legitimate policy disagreements are not racist in the least. They are legitimate policy disagreements.

    But that's not what he said. He specifically points to the vehemence, which is the manner in which they object. The hatred, the vile accusations, the attitude.

    Again, not the objection to policy but the treatment, the how it was done. Not the objection to policy.

    So, slow down, back up, and address the actual argument. Which is that racism is still with us, and that we should still address it where merited.
    Oh please. That is not what is going on today and you know it.

    Are you for real? Talk about splitting hairs. So people have to oppose policy with a smile or they're racist. Talk about some real crybaby **** right there. Waaaa, the big bad opposition says things meanly.

    I thought reality wasn't subjective?

    You can add the head flunky. Remember a few months ago when asked about his poll numbers and he pulled the race card. So, according to his logic, a huge group of people who voted for him in 2008 and 2012 suddenly became racist causing his low poll numbers. Total d-bag.

    I know nothing of the kind. Have you actually read the exaggerated nonsense we see?

    Hardly. But they have to focus on the issue and not wild insults and exaggerations.

    And I said reality isn't subjective. And it isn't. When hate exceeds reason, it's proper to ask why? Factually, Obama has done little to warrant the silliness he has to contend with.
