    What we have seen from the right is an attempt to inoculate themselves from whacko teaparty pronouncements by proclaiming that they do not have a spokesperson or a leader and anyone speaking for them can be dismissed as a lone individual. Its a less than clever ruse which fools nobodyu except those who want to be fooled having drunk amply gallons of the right wing kool-aid.
    What makes him the leader? Was he voted the leader by tea party members?

    You also forgot to mention this

    Look it is true that liberal TV pundits do play the race card too much, but don't sit here and act like conservative TV pundits haven't done the same. Look at fox news for example. Glen Beck (who is consider a hero by the majority of tea parties) said that Obama had a deep rooted hatred for white people. Many conservatives said that white people voted for Barack Obama because of "white guilt" and every black on the planet voted for Obama because he is black. Hell there were many of you that said this on the DP.There were times I heard GOP leaders refer to Obama as "Kenyan". Hmmm why is that???

    Both sides pander to their audience to get ratings. A strong part of the liberal base are minorities and a strong part of the conservative base are old white southerners. Are you going to sit here with a straight face and say that these large portion of these older white southerners are not looking at Obama being black? Listen to fox, when have they ever said anything positive about minorities? They want because their target audience will get upset. The same with stations like MSNBC. They will not dare say anything negative about minorities.

    Lets see you logic here
    1- at the start of your reply you want to deny that Williams was a leader - which is exactly what you were predicted to do by me.
    2- you then link to an article which you hope redeems the tea party and the first thing it does is call Williams a leader of the tea party.

    So which way is it?

    haymarket,

    Had a republican been mentored by a racist like Wright, you think he'd have made it into the state senate, let alone the US Senate, then president? He wouldn't be elected dog catcher.

    Ask Bill and Hillary Clinton about the race card. Ask the Cambridge cop about the race card. Ask Biden about 7-11, or being clean and articulate, or Reid about his comments. Then there are morons like Bob Schieffer and Tavis Smiley running racist accusations for the WH.

    Had an R pulled any of this it'd be career over.

    If there is race baiting, we know where it would be coming from... from the bottom of the Liberal deck.

    Its that racism of low expectations that the left practices as applied to blacks. Its been going on for years. when I was in college it was popular for liberals on campus to whine about College investments in South Africa. South AFrican athletes-white, brown, black were banned from the Olympics. State sponsored athletes from countries like Uganda that featured genocidal dictators were not. South Africa was condemned for only letting whites have full rights while most African run nations south of the Sahara were far more racist in terms of tribal oppression. When I asked Liberals why south Africa and its Apartheid was worse than say Francois Macias or Idi Amin or later Robert Mugabe, the subtle comments were essentially that american liberals were upset that "whites" were acting like thugs-it was to be expected of asswipes like Amin.

    Its that same thing with Obama. the left almost expects him to be tight with racist asswipes like Wright. its the same leftwing mentality that almost expects high rates of violent street crime among the urban blacks.

    I don't know. I never knew there was a leader. So I looked and found the left here only wants to tell half the story

    Well he is right technically, since it after all is the first president that isn't caucasian, tough call Tavis.
