President Obama and his campaign played the race card to its FULLEST in 2008, even while making a completely sexist campaign against Hilary (and then discounting and making light of that campaign's complaints of discrimination).When you make inane comments like this man has, and you put yourself out there as he has, expecting not to be criticized on one's position is rather short sighted. Playing the race card just looks shallow.
The guy may well be educated. But he certainly looks stupid.
Let it be remembered that Candidate Obama said it was his goal to visit all 57 states. Was there massive outcry about his inability to run the country for not knowing such a simple fact as the number of states in the Union he would be presiding over? No, there wasn't. Liberal apologetics glazed that one over as a simple flub or campaign exhaustion or whatever, even while still blaming Bush for making flubs. You see, when a Republican is in office, they must be held to the absolute highest standard, because they are representing America to the entire world.... but they world understands when a Democrat makes a gaff, because Democrats are usually tired and stressed out from providing for women, minorities, and the poor, and all while combating the evil Republicans who are trying to subjugate the world for diabolical purposes.
There was a time not too long ago when nobody, black, white, hispanic, asian, whatever, could say a single negative thing about Candidate and President Obama without being immediately and vehemently accused of being a racist and nitpicking simply because of the color of his skin. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, people can find all kinds of negative things to say about this Republican "token" "Uncle Tom" phony followup media stunt. But that's not racist at all, now is it?
