Obama Throws Race into the Race

Barack Hussein Obama has thrown race into the general election by claiming that Republicans will work to cause fear about his funny middle name, his inexperience and, oh he is black. This is a slick tactic because Obama has lumped his extreme lack of experience with two issues that most people, including Republicans, find inconsequential. No one cares about his color and his middle name is just something to have fun with, so by putting experience with them he is telling people that it does not matter either.

“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?” al-Reuters

Barry O Bam Bam is the one who has thrown race into the issue. By mentioning it he has given himself and his supporters license to question ANYTHING as racist if it is unfavorable to their Messiah. He raised the race issue for this very reason. He wants to be able to incite people and infuriate them because of race. Keep in mind that the Republican Party has engaged him very little so far. He has been in an extended primary and all the racist attacks came from Democrats. The truth is, many of them were from Obama supporters and people he considered his friends and mentors. His pastor has used more racial BS during this season than most others will and certainly more than any Republican.

Obama eased into this tact by claiming Republicans would not be able to to defend their stewardship of the economy or outstanding foreign policy. The economy is not that bad. It is certainly not as bad as everyone on the left makes it out to be. The major issue that people see and relate to the economy is the cost of gasoline. The Democrats are the reason we are paying so much for gas. They refuse to lift the moratorium on drilling and they (including the RINO John McCain) refuse to allow drilling in one of the most barren places on the planet. It is the Democrats who are the economic disasters in this country. If Bill Clinton had signed the ANWR drilling into law we would have been getting oil from there right now. The economy cannot be very bad because Obambi does not take money from PACs, special interests and lobbyists (that is what he says) so how is it he has raised $250,000? How could all those poor Democrats afford so much money in such a bad economy?

As for foreign policy, the first and most important thing a President can do is ensure that we are safe. We have not been attacked since 9/11 and if the methods we used to ensure this rankle other countries then too bad. The foreign policy of appeasement and cowardice is what caused 9/11 and it was a Democrat who gave that to us. Obama will follow the same path. Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, and Clinton are names associated with incidents that tested this country and showed us as weak. Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, Iran Hostage Crisis, and Somalia were brought to you by Democrats. What disaster will Obama’s policy of appeasement bring to our country. Will another Republican have to follow a Democrat and clean up the mess?

I will not vote for Obama and it has nothing to do with his color. I do not agree with his policies and I do not believe in his politics so that is why I will not be voting for him. Skin color is not something I would use to decide on who I will vote for though there are many blacks (some of them Republicans) who might vote for Obambi just because he is black. I hold my principles in a higher regard than to vote for someone who I think will be bad for my country. I took and oath to protect and defend this nation against all enemies foreign and domestic. My allegiance is to the country and the Constitution and my votes always reflect who I think will be the best steward of those two things.

If that makes me a racist then so be it.

UPDATE: From American Thinker [Clarice Feldman]: LTC Allen West released this in reference to Obama’s statement.

My advice to Senator Obama is to run as a Man and Leader, and the American people will evaluate you as such, not as a victim. This is a Presidential race, based solely on a capacity to lead the United States of America. It is not about skin tone…however, perhaps we should come to expect these immature statements.

It also seems rather humorous that the Presidential candidate who was supposed to be such a “uniter” and transcend race is the one talking about it the most. If Senator Obama was confident in his abilities and character, he would not need to create a crutch for failure. Senator Obama has just tipped his hand, any criticism of him and his policies will be directly attributed to racism. I congratulate Senator Obama for taking race relations in America back some 30 years.

LTC West is running for a Congressional seat in Florida’s 22nd District.

    Excellent post. I posted something similar today at Hannity Forum and then on my sites. We are thinking along the same lines. Bigdog, have a great blogging day and a good weekend. R/ Bosun

    Once again you hit the nail on the head. The one true reason Obama brought up race was so that he and his supporters could call any attack on his political stances racially based attacks. It will be difficult to challenge him on an issue without somebody somewhere saying it is racially based.
    No Republicans have attacked him based on race, however he is right in saying the groundwork has been laid. Only it was by DEMOCRATS! He forgets that part though.

    Meathead’s post calls me a liar for saying that the Republicans have engaged Obama VERY LITTLE so far. He then goes on to discuss an ad that supposedly refutes this (it still means very little). He uses someone else’s opinion about an ad to call my perceptions a lie.

    And how does an ad about race refute that Republicans have engaged him very little so far?

    Meathead is a little troll who does nothing but cal peole names over the Internet that he would never call them to their face because he would get his teeth knocked out. He is a tough guy who can sit in his basement and write that people are cowards or liars simply because they do not agree with him.

    If I were a person who favored abortion he would be my poster child. I imagine his personality has made many people reconsider their view on abortion.

    I do not believe in abortion but in his case I’d be willing to see a very later term one.

    That’s not “playing the race card.” It’s reality. He’s not going to allow himself to be “swift boated” like John Kerry was. He knows that the Republicans fight dirty and he’s being pro-active in fighting against what they will do. It’s just another example of how far ahead of the game Barack Obama is and I believe it’s further proof of what a great President he will be. This is someone who is thinking many steps ahead. It will be a real pleasure to have someone in the White House that thinks ahead.

    Kayla, it is race into the race. Swift Boated? The 527s that support Democrats have spent 75% of the money on the ad so far. Who plays dirty? He is from Chicago and there is no such thing as clean politics in Chicago.

    Obama cannot think ahead. If he did he never would have associated himself with all the racists. Of course, birds of a feather…

    It’s not the Republicans that throw race into the fray it’s the race baiting demorats, they loveto get that “Racist” dig in so then everyone spends time defending the accusation. Like this “I am not a racist I have a black friend” LOL

    the race card will be played because folks are so sensitive. Call me a racist if you want.. who cares, I am not voting for an Obama/Wright/Sharpton/Jackson/Farrakhan type president….

    I deleted 2 comments from Meathead. They violated my comment policy.

    To address you Meathead, let me know if you are in the area, you can man up and call me what you want and then I WILL take your $500. You seriously underestimate people when you can sit in your basement with Cheeto stained fingers writing and calling names.

    It is easy for you to call people a coward but if you ever had the chance to put up or shut up you would run like the thumb sucking bed-wetter you are.

  12. GM Roper says:

    Hey, I like Cheetos!!! Other than that, you’ve captured the essence of the Obamessiah quite well Doggie. He will play that card to the hilt whether he has to pull it from the bottom of the deck or from his sleeve. You can always tell a racist by his comments. The Obamessiah qualifies in spades. (and no, for the meathead, that last word is not about race, it’s a Bridge term – just in case you were tempted.)

  13. Robert says:

    Meathead is trolling your site BD??? LMAO

    His mom told me she banned him from the computer because he’d signed up for NAMBLA on her credit card. I guess he found another computer to use, oh well I wasn’t too impressed with his Mom, she was charging a small amount of cash for services compared to the others on the street…

    Obama can keep denying his racist views, he has too, but his friends do tell the tale of his views. All be it not as extreme he holds some serious racial bias.

    McCain only has two things going for him: Support for the military, and HE IS NOT OBAMA.
