We knew that Left, the Obama campaign, and their media syncophants would play the race card: what else do they have? Obama pushed the meme a bit himself the other day when he appeared on The View, stating that “when you have a name like mine, the race is going to be a bit tight.” Couldn’t have anything to do with your agenda and policies, and performance, could it, champ? Then there’s this (via PJ Tattler)
(CNN) “My heart says he will win here, but my head says it’s going to be awfully tough for him,” said Gary Pearce, a longtime Democratic consultant and adviser to former Gov. Jim Hunt. “This is a tight state for him. Race is part of it. The economy is a big problem. Four years ago he was new, he was exciting. He was hope and change. That has worn off now. The glow is gone. It’s going to be tough for him to catch magic in the bottle again.”
The economy is part of it, but, it’s mostly raaaaacism. There there’s this Colbert King op-ed at the Washington Post, promoted on the WP’s Internet front page as “White like him”
Missing in his Liberty offering, as with some other Romney speeches, is any recognition — not praises, mind you, but simple acknowledgment — that 21st-century America is more than a white, middle-class country. (snip)
But what does the man who seeks to lead this country have to say about, and to, this rapidly changing nation of diverse people with diverse interests and needs?
Thus far, Romney’s thoughts and policy prescriptions seem focused on America’s largest — and slowest-growing — racial group: his own. (snip)
The question is much broader and more significant: When Mitt Romney thinks and speaks of Americans, do those who don’t look like him even come to mind?
Maybe, unlike Democrats, he looks out and sees Americans, not class, race, and interest groups…..na, gotta be raaaaacism.
There recent Jeremiah Wright references were, of course, raaaaacism, not a serious inquiry initiated by Wright after it came to light that the Obama campaign (supposedly) attempted to bribe Wright to just go away. Attacks on Mormonism, well, those are OK, of course.
