SMEAR: Republicans oppose Obama because he is black...TRUTH: We oppose him because he is a liberal

At a fundraiser in Jacksonville Florida Obama said some great stuff about republicans. They aren't smears, they are true. Here is an excerpt from Reuters
"It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy," Obama told a fundraiser in Jacksonville, Florida. "We know what kind of campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid. "They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black? "He said he was also set for Republicans to say "he's got a feisty wife," in trying to attack his wife Michelle.
Is it me or did Obama just pull out the race card? And I may be mistaken but I think he just said that republicans were racist. Oh my hell, I better run right out and put an Obama bumper sticker on my car to prove I am not a racist. UUUMMM did he forget he was also white? Its not his BI-RACIAL heritage, nor his "feisty" wife, nor his name, nor his age...yes his inexperience, but his leftist, liberal, socialist, policies that keep me up at night in a cold sweat clinging to my religion and my rifle. Oh and the fact that he is an arrogant and elitist lawyer. Who is the fear-monger now? Scary, mean, racist republicans hatin' on Obama. Yep its what we do. He on the other hand is offering to welcome us into his world of "change" and "non-partisanship". Yea, I feel the coziness in his comments, it was like a warm hug scooping me up in a cloud of inclusion. I am running to join in the circle of love. Seriously, I feel like a dryer sheet in the arms of the snuggle bear. Obama sucks. How do you like me now? Mmmm, Not so much. Good.

Well put. Not only is he a liberal, he's the most liberal person in the Senate right now, and he is also the most liberal person to ever run for president. He's so liberal he's bordering on socialist. That's why we don't want him running our nation.

Yes, who the heck keeps talking about his race? Except the media and liberals who feel it is his right because he is black most of the time. That is the one thing he didn't choose, every thing else he chose on his own and that's what I don't like about him, or her. But that's not good enough for liberals, I have to be a racist in their mind to explain why I don't support him. Pathetic.

Am I shocked to learn Obama is playing the race card? He’s been doing it ever since he found out that being a “po black man” is a lucrative business; just ask Jackson, Sharpton, and a host of others who enslave their own people to government because it’s a money maker. If we recognize Obama as a snake-oil salesman from Chicago, then we know him to be a liar and a con artist, no matter how sophisticated his deceit. Even Momar Qadhafi recognizes Obama is a liar (my recent post). Sad to say, Obama has a considerable following in the black community for one reason only, and it has nothing to do with a substantive plan for America’s future.

Nikki!! You let me down!! I saw an article on CNN (I think that's where it was) about Obama's seal mimicking the Presidential seal. My first thought was, "Oh, I can't wait to hear what Nikki has to say about this!" But nada. We semi-liberals are waiting!!

anon, shut the hell up!

nik, great rant! and very good points. here's why the race card gets pulled repeatedly. ppl are STUCK in their comfort zone. supposedly obama and all his followers want CHANGE. but he and them also want to be able to snuggle on their security blanket of racism and the unfairness of life whenever they so choose. yes, yes, change! they say. time to move foreward, they say. but allow us to cry race card please, whenever we feel pressure, mmkay? it's tiresome. fuggin crybaby-ass-scratching-pacifier-sucking-blankie-huggin-glee-club. i look around and say, how the hell did we come to this. my fellow democrats. clearly we're not all on the same page.

c'est la vie.

Hey Freadom, Too bad we ahve to clarify our position so much, but here come the smears! :)N

Paul, well said and I agree wholeheartedly. When will liberals learn that we have differing opinions not bigoted opinions...we are no longer the party of oppressors. But what will they do if we are not? stop whining...doubt it. :)N


Sandi, thanks for the nudge! I hope you enjoyed the commentary! you're great! :)N


Maria, you are sooooo stinking awesome and your little recipe of words strung together is one for the books my dear...I may have to refer to that one in some later posts!! haha :)N

I don't think that's really a race card pull. he's legitimately referring to the last executive PR campaign of fear-mongering. i know GOPs are tired of hearing it, but c'mon both campaigns are going to attack anything they can, it would be no different had HRC won. taking the bullets out of the gun isn't playing the race card, it's thinking ahead. it's so twisted, the first major party A/A nominee is fighting charges of elitism. And the 3rd gen Navy hero is the blue collar candidate. every time a president emerges from outside the old boys network he gets taken down. andrew jackson, impeached, jimmy carter, stonewalled, Bill Clinton, impeached. if obama wins, i expect it to be no different. At least obama realizes beat the old school to the punch.

Nikki said...

Johnny you may have a point. However I think it speaks of his hypocrisy as being a uniter...he has no intention of crossing party lines EVER. His idea is to merely attract guilt stricken republican voters and then enact his policy. I think it sucks that he would say something like this. I appreciate the thoughtful challenge! :)N

Good point anonymous. Be careful with the common sense. You'll be called a troll, a pussy and threatened with censorship.
