Even calling Obama “cool” is racist
(Washington Examiner) Angela Rye, Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus, argued that President Obama has struggled during his first term due to racially-motivated opposition from conservatives who dislike having a black president.
“This is probably the toughest presidential term in my lifetime,” Rye said during CSPAN’s Q&A yesterday. “I think that a lot of what the president has experienced is because he’s black. You know, whether it’s questioning his intellect or whether or not he’s Ivy League. It’s always either he’s not educated enough or he’s too educated; or he’s too black or he’s not black enough; he’s too Christian or not Christian enough. There are all these things where he has to walk this very fine line to even be successful.”
She said that “a lot” of conservative opposition is racially-charged, citing the use of the word “cool” in an attack ad launched by Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS superPAC.
“There’s an ad, talking about [how] the president is too cool, [asking] is he too cool? And there’s this music that reminds me of, you know, some of the blaxploitation films from the 70s playing in the background, him with his sunglasses,” Rye said. “And to me it was just very racially-charged. They weren’t asking if Bush was too cool, but, yet, people say that that’s the number one person they’d love to have a beer with. So, if that’s not cool I dont know what is.
She added that “even ‘cool,’ the term ‘cool,’ could in some ways be deemed racial [in this instance].”
Race baiting is the last refuge of an incompetent Party with an incompetent president, both of which are destroying this country. I mean, good grief, calling him “cool” is now racist? Does that mean the mostly liberal media is now racist? Hyper-leftist Chris Cillizza said that Barack Obama is coo. Mitt Romney is not. Throughout the 2008 election we were told that Obama was cool, while John McCain was an old fuddy duddy.
Obama has struggled during his first term because he’s the most incompetent president ever. He was completely unprepared to be president. He had Democrat control of Congress during his first two years and managed to put in place policies that completely stopped any economic recovery. He’s annoyed our allies and damaged our international credibility. He seems to enjoy the ability to personally give the green light to launch drone strikes. The United States has $5 trillion+ in new debt. GDP is stagnant. Unemployment has been above 8% for his entire term, and doesn’t seem to be getting better.
Democrats have no actual arguments regarding Obama’s terrible record, so they jump to the race card.
