I will get you started:
Biden's description of Obama draws scrutiny - CNN.com"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."
EDIT: Or this little gem from Harry Reid:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/0..._n_417406.htmlSenate Democratic leader Harry Reid apologized on Saturday for saying the race of Barack Obama – whom he described as a "light skinned" African-American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one" – would help rather than hurt his eventual presidential bid.

We just had a thread about how all the talk shows are making fun of Obama, and most liberals thought it was funny. That's because most of these talk show guys are funny. They're talented comedians with good writers to back them up. Except Leno, his jokes aren't funny, but that's no because he's making fun of Obama. It's because Leno sucks.
Now, conservatives: those email forwards you keep getting about Obama? Those aren't funny. They're bad. Worse, half of them are recycled from years ago, just replacing Clinton/Bush with Obama. They'd probably recycle Reagan jokes too, but email wasn't really a thing then. When you recycle a joke, it tends not to get funnier, and they were bad to begin with. The thing about Bush/Obama jumping out of a plane without a parachute? That wasn't funny the first time. I got it with Bush's name, and I thought "somebody believed this was worth my time, and now I hate that person for thinking that."
One comment about non-joke political emails: they're usually wrong. If you see fw:fw: at the start, and it's about politics, just assume somebody is lying to you.
One of you will end up here next!

Swing and a miss.
Matthews didn't hold that opposition to Obama was racist, merely that certain comments made about Obama were racial in tone and insensitive, and that individuals who ignored the underlying racial tone of these comments were dead wrong.
A far cry from the standard you've set up, wherein any criticism of Obama is considered racist.
Swing and a miss, again.
Eric Dyson held that in reference to Obama's treatment of the supreme court, use the term "bullying" to describe it was something a racist would do.
I might not agree completely with Dyson's assessment...
But again, it is a far cry from the standard you've set up, wherein any criticism of Obama is considered racist.
Swing and a miss, for a third time.
Eric Dyson characterized the GOP's blanket refusal to work with the President in any capacity as racist.
This is again a far cry from the standard you've set up, wherein any criticism of Obama is considered racist.
Hell, all of these are examples of where specific arguments or insults against Obama are deemed racist. Whether they are or are not can be debated, but none of them meet the standard you set forth in your opening post: That Obama is being untreated unfairly compared to Bush, and that any and all criticism of Obama were deemed racist.
Ok, the concensus so far is that King O is fair game. So put on you Obama mask and make fun of the idiot and chief.

I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
The office of the President deserves respect. And every President deserves respect as a person. But every President, as a politician, is obviously also fair game for ridicule, satire, criticism, etc.
