    This liberal crap that anyone who doesn't love Obama is a racist, is beneath contempt. It puts them on the same level as 'birthers'.

    It's basically identical to what Obama said. Just swap the parties and the race.

    They're counting on young people staying home and union members staying home and black folks staying home," President Obama said at a rally in Philadelphia.


    I don't think race baiting is going to help Obama and the democrats. Do you?

    Think the statement was certainly divisive. Setting up a black versus white ("us against them") dichotomy. A little tasteless but probably smart politics on Obama's part. He needs the raw numbers turnout on election day similar to what he pulled off in 2008. And the blacks and the young (first time voters) were a big part of that turnout. He (Obama) is going to do whatever he can to stir up that discontent/emotion again.

    Raw politics. Ain't nothing matters 'cept that number at the end of the day......

    So.... Union members are a race? Obviously, by your statement they are. Correct? Why else would Obama mention union members beside students and black people? It couldn't possibly be because these are you know... the main voting block of the American left. You know, minorities, unions, students etc. As opposed to the main voting block of the Republican party which is you know, white men. No. It couldn't possibly be because of that. It's because Obama is a secret white slave owner. In other words you're simply seeing racism where there is none.

    If more Republicans stopped pretending to be Libertarians and simply accepted that it was their party which created the modern racial divisions and guidelines for voting blocks, we wouldn't have this problem.

    Things to look up: Southern strategy, Nixon, 1970s.
