Boiled down, that is what he’s saying – from US News and World Report:
…But Obama, in his most candid moments, acknowledged that race was still a problem. In May 2010, he told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent “Tea Party” movement that was then surging across the country. Many middle-class and working-class whites felt aggrieved and resentful that the federal government was helping other groups, including bankers, automakers, irresponsible people who had defaulted on their mortgages, and the poor, but wasn’t helping them nearly enough, he said.
A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to “take back” their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn’t dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a “subterranean agenda” in the anti-Obama movement—a racially biased one—that was unfortunate. But he sadly conceded that there was little he could do about it…
Uh, Barry, its not quite like that. You see, we really don’t care that you’re black. What bothers us about you is not your skin color, but the fact that you are a fool who is running the nation we love up on the rocks. We’d swap you out for a differently abled, transgendered person of color if we could provided that person had a modicum of competence to recommend them for the job. You don’t have that – you coasted to victory on a wave of euphoria with your reality hidden behind a fog of feel-good propaganda. And it also helped that you were running against a man who proved he would rather lose gracefully than win by getting down and dirty in the political trenches.
Hatred does, of course, stalk our land. But the hatred emanates from the left – those who compare Governor Walker to Hitler, or who blame Sarah Palin because a lunatic went on a shoot spree in Arizona. The hatred comes from those who want to butcher unborn children, even in the last days of pregnancy. There is hatred in those who want President Bush charged as a war criminal, but never make a move to take out a beast like Fidel Castro. There is the most evil and wicked hatred in those who blame the United States for the misery spawned by wicked men who hate the United States.
President and Obama and his liberals don’t see it like that. They see a world in which they are exemplars of mercy, justice and love…and if they are such, then those who oppose them must have base motivations. And, so, you get a topsy-turvy world in which the President believes that hate-filled racism motivates his opponents, while his own minions daily slander and attack. This will not change. If we beat Obama in 2012, then there will be a whole slew of stories and books written about how the latent racism of the United States rose up to drive Obama out of office – in fact, if you want to pre-position yourself to make a fast buck, write that book today and just have it ready for the publisher…be the first off the mark with it and you’ll probably have a million-seller.
As usual when dealing with liberal, the answer is to beat them so badly at the polls that they don’t matter any more – and then defund them so that they’ll dry up and blow away. Until such time, we’re just going to have to put up with monstrously stupid, liberal statements.
HAT TIP: The Other McCain.
