Barack Obama admits to playing race card

...and with a Clintonian twist. According to this, he said this earlier today:

"I don't think it's accurate to say my comments have nothing to do with race... here's what I was saying, and I think it should be undisputed: I don't come out of central casting when it comes to presidential races, for a whole range of reasons. I'm young, new to the national scene. My name is Barack Obama. I'm African American. I was born in Hawaii. I spent time in Indonesia. I do not have the typical biography of a presidential candidate... In no way do I think John McCain's campaign was being racist... They're cynical, and I think they want to distract people from the real issues."

I don't think it's accurate to say we want to put up with four years of someone playing the race card when things don't go his way.

eh

This is (just) one reason an Obama presidency would suck: having to listen to four years of blather and nonsense about race. Total bullshit.

Embarrassing spinning. Insulting. But comical. 'new to the national scene. My name is Barack Obama. I'm African American. I was born in Hawaii. I spent time in Indonesia.' But his false accusation against McCain specifically referred to 'looks like' and of those it's race which falls into that category. But keep #$%&ing on everyone's leg and telling us it's raining. It's really getting 'Clinton-esque' talk going. "There is nothing more to this than the fact that he was describing that he was new to the political scene," Gibbs said. "It is not about race." Except that he obviously referred to race. They said nobody there thought he was talking about race when EVERYBODY there did. Let's see what he said-- "Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. What they're [Bush and McCain] going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know: 'He's not patriotic enough. He's got a funny name. You know, he doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.' " It's amazing he was doing that and not just accidentally one time. Nobody in his camp noticed he's accusing his opponent *by name* of racial scare mongering? Portraying himself as Willie Horton? Which would be a great charge except IT'S COMPLETELY FALSE. And how stupid to bring race up when your strategy has always been NOT to mention your race? Sometimes it's clever to keep a false charge hypothetical --'they're going to'--but he got it turned around on himself by not keeping the person doing it unnamed. That's what constituted the 'stepping in it'. He opened the door for McCain to personally refute the charge. Dumb! Anyone else notice some of the articles somehow leave off the McCain attribution part and just say 'Republicans'? "He's not from central casting," Axelrod told a national TV audience Friday, "when it comes to candidates for president of the United States. He's new to Washington. Yes, he's African American." I love the way Axelrod just slips that in at the end.

petty bourgeois

He is half white. Doesn't anybody like his white half enough to talk about it, or does only the black part matter?

when Obama becomes the next president for life the system will do as it is told to do and that means total treachery and total racism against you, obama will use the race card on his enemies and that enemy will be you.
