    Barack Obama himself rejects the racial assertions of Jimmy Carter...

    Obama Rejects Race as Lead Cause of Criticism
    By JEFF ZELENY
    Published: September 18, 2009

    WASHINGTON — President Obama said Friday that he did not believe his race was the cause of fierce criticism aimed at his administration in the contentious national debate over health care, but rather that the cause was a sense of suspicion and distrust many Americans have in their government.

    “Are there people out there who don’t like me because of race? I’m sure there are,” Mr. Obama told CNN. “That’s not the overriding issue here.”

    In five separate television interviews at the White House, Mr. Obama said he did not agree with former President Jimmy Carter’s assertion that racism was fueling the opposition to his administration. He described himself as just the latest in a line of presidents whose motives had been questioned because they were trying to enact major change.

    Paraphrasing some AP dude, the racist label is quickly losing it's power. The constant hurling of the racist slur is becoming more of a spitball than a stigma.

    This is a real shame too. There are occasions that it is appropriate and, now, those deserving of it will no longer worry about being labeled.

    You know, I'm not a Obama fan by any definition, but I have to give him credit for that.

    It would have been political suicide for him to do otherwise. Obama is wise to keep his eyes on the goal of healthcare reform. The repugs have some nasty tactics but Obama is rising above it.

    IMO Wilson's outburst was planned just like the planned disruptions at the Town Hall meetings.

    What you think, and what I think, are obviously not always equitable.
