A Democrat in Congress is claiming that Obama is being treated badly in the debt ceiling issue because he is black. Yep, a shocker that a Democrat has thrown the race card once again. Shelia Jackson Lee, a black Congresswoman, is all about stirring up the race pot by insisting that Obama is being treated differently than any other president and there is only one difference, he is black.
“I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president — only this one, only this one — has received the kind of attacks and disagreement and inability to work, only this one,” said Jackson Lee from the House floor.
“Read between the lines,” she continued. “What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?” The Hill
I guess this moron was in a coma during the eight years George Bush was president. Bush was maligned by everyone including Lee. Can we conclude that she treated him this way because he is white? There is more than one difference between Obama and those who came before him. Those men were trying to solve the nation’s problems while Obama is adding to them. He is inexperienced and carries an air of entitlement even though he had accomplished little prior to being immaculated.
Yes Ms. Lee, the debt ceiling has been raised scores of times in the past. This begs the question; why even have a debt ceiling in the first place? If you morons are not going to honor the limit then why even have it? It is in place to keep you people (members of Congress for the intellectually challenged race baiters) from spending us into poverty. Looks like it might be a bit too late because the ceiling has been raised and never lowered.
As an aside, the 14th Amendment states legal debt authorized by law shall not be questioned. We do not have to raise the debt limit to pay our obligations on borrowed money. It is simply not an issue here.
Yes, you can claim that people oppose the raising of the debt limit because Obama is black but before you hold firm to that claim perhaps it would be helpful if you are reintroduced to the words of then Senator Obama when Bush wanted to raise the debt ceiling:
The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. Sodahead.com
Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling and rightly stated that we are saddling future generations with debt. That is just as true today as it was when the high and mighty Obama voted against raising the limit. And it is just as true today that the fact we are discussing this issue is a sign of leadership failure.
Obama has failed to lead and this is by his own standard.
So before Ms. Lee gets her granny panties in a wad she should revisit what her messiah Obama said in 2006. Perhaps she would do well to actually have facts and ensure her brain is working before she opens her mouth.
But then again, if she did that she would not be able to throw out the race card and that is the trump card for Democrats.
Never surrender, never submit.

Barack Obama and his party would have people believe that the Republican party is full of racists and that the Democrats are as pure as the driven snow and as diverse as the United Nations. The reality is that the Democrats have injected race into the quest for the presidency. The Democratic primaries involved only Democrats and race was an issue the entire way. Hillary could not make a statement without the Obama camp shouting racism and every time we turned around people were either not voting for Obama or being accused of not voting for him because he is black.
When Obama became the presumptive nominee the race card was played and it has been ongoing ever since. At first Obama told us that Republicans would try to scare people because he is black and then we had him discussing the fact that he does not look like the other guys on dollar bills. The word has already been put out that anyone who does not vote for the sainted one is a racist.
It is pretty obvious that playing the race card is going to be the tactic used by the Democrats and Howard Dean is following suit. Some time ago Dean remarked how the Republican party was the party of white people while the Democrats were diverse. He has done that again during an interview when he stated:
“If you look at folks of color, even women, they’re more successful in the Democratic party than they are in the white, uh, excuse me, in the [laughs] Republican party.” Breitbart
I have gone over this before. The majority of blacks in this country are registered as Democrats and 90% of the black voters vote for Democrats. Anyone capable of doing the math can see that there are very few blacks available to run for office as Republicans and those who admit to being Republicans are chastised as Uncle Toms and sell outs. The National Black Republican Association is full of intelligent Conservative Republicans who happen to be black. They are attacked in the media and by the left all the time. Their sole crime is that they are black and Republican. The Democrats don’t like to let the blacks off their plantation (to use their words) and those who choose not to follow the left are attacked for their beliefs.
There are some promising black candidates who are running for office as Republicans and they will certainly do a fine job. Watch and see who attacks them and who injects race into the issue. Here is a hint, it won’t be Republicans. Frances Rice of the NBRA has recounted a nice history to show who will be the attackers. Ms. Rice is brilliant. She is a veteran and we owe her a debt of gratitude for her service to our country.
As for other minorities and women, I think Dean has it wrong. Of course the majority of Mexicans will be looking to the Democrats because the Democrats want to open the borders and allow all the illegals to invade our country. However, there are many who are here legally who do not buy into the open borders philosophy of the left. Women have made great strides in this country and some of them have done well as Republicans. How about our Secretary of State Condi Rice. She happens to be a woman and black. Of course, she was attacked as an Aunt Jemima.
If Dean wants to discuss women perhaps he can discuss how Hillary Clinton was treated by her party. Perhaps he can explain how she was relegated to second class citizen in favor of a new comer who happens to be black. I am no Hillary fan but I can see she and her supporters were treated poorly. She was left out in the cold in favor of Obama, a man who was selected not elected (funny how this is different when it is one of their own).
I believe that minorities would do much better if they embraced the Republican party and espoused conservative values like they did prior to the middle of the last century. They would be welcomed with open arms and given every opportunity to succeed without the chains of government wrapped around their necks. My friends at the NBRA have done quite well and they are not shunned by Republicans because we don’t care about the color of their skin, only the content of their character.
That was the dream of a famous black man, Martin Luther King Jr.
By the way, he was a Republican…

The Obama team plans to use the words “attack ads” and “racism” to win the election. Every time the Republicans put out an ad, the Obama team calls it an attack ad. They claim the ads are misleading and untruthful. I notice they never say the same about the ads put out by them and their surrogates.
In addition to claiming all ads to be attacks (they are or why would you put them out) the Obama team will also play the race card. John McCain’s camp has already stated “Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck.” This is absolutely true even though the Obama folks try to spin things differently. Here is what Obama said:
Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face,” Obama said Wednesday. “So what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, ‘He’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name.’ You know, ‘He doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills. Herald Tribune
First of all, “nobody” is an absolute. Obama wants people to believe that there are no people at all who believe that McCain (forget Bush, he is not running in the race) has the answers. If this were true then Obama would lead in the polls instead of being in a dead heat. But the second part of the statement addresses this. You see, Americans don’t believe in what McCain says but are racists and are being scared because Barry does not look like the other presidents on dollar bills. We are all racists or we would look past his color and vote for him because he has all the answers. This is how the entire season will play out. Now, anyone who read or heard that statement knows what Obama was saying but his people had to nuance it.
But Robert Gibbs, an Obama spokesman, said Thursday that Obama was not referring to race.
“He was describing that he was new to the political scene,” The Associated Press reported him as saying. “He was referring to the fact that he didn’t come into the race with the history of others. It is not about race.”
The Obama statement was absolutely about race. Obama said LOOK LIKE. He did not say, not as experienced as all those folks on dollar bills. He specifically said LOOK. The only thing that looks obviously different is his skin color and that is what Barry was referring to.
They can spin this any way they want but the fact is Obama has made a similar claim in the past. At that time he specifically said they will scare you by telling you he has a funny name and he is black. The sainted one is definitely playing the race card as he did in the primary against Hillary and now he is being even more aggressive in the general.
Let me clear it up for the Messiah. There are some people who will not vote for you because you are black just as there are some people who will not vote for McCain because he is old. However, the majority of people who do not vote for you will be voting against what you believe in. We will be voting against your Socialist policies and your desire for vastly increasing the size of federal government while increasing our taxes along the way. We are not on board with Hope and Change as game plans for improving this country and we don’t want another obstructionist who will forbid drilling for our own oil.
No Barry, we don’t care what color you are because that is not important to the conversation. We care about what you believe in. We care about what you will do to our country and we care about how your policies will impact our military, our economy, and our safety. You are not experienced enough to lead this country and you are too far left (though you are feigning to the middle) for us.
However, I will ask this. Huge numbers of black people are voting for you and not McCain and many have stated they are voting for you because you are black. Does that make them the racists? How come you have not gone after them for their obvious racism? What about whites who are only voting for you because you are black, what are they?
No Barry, I am not voting for you because I do not believe what you believe and I do not like your political views. I am not voting against you because of your color so quit calling me a racist.
However, if it will make you feel better, I am voting against the half of you that is white.

When Obambi was on his Barack Star tour of the Middle East and Europe he was well received by adoring mobs of people. This was a big moment for the Messiah as he looked at those people and realized that he was the answer to their prayers. His handlers were doing their best to ensure that the Messiah looked presidential and appeared as if he had vast foreign policy experience so much so that Obama acted like he was the president (except when he dissed the wounded warriors for political reasons). Certainly this trip was going to help his image and he would open a wide margin over John McCain, the fossilized dinosaur of yesteryear.
That bump in the polls came when Barry O returned from his “fact finding mission” (in which he stated he did not learn any more than he already knew) when he took a 9 point lead over McCain. This was the beginning of the end. The problem is, Barry has no staying power. Also, that was a national poll of registered voters. The poll of likely voters gave McCain a 4 point edge.
Yesterday’s Gallup poll shows the two are now in a dead heat with the Messiah at 45% and John McCain at 44%. That bump Obambi got from his “Look at me, ain’t I something” tour disappeared quicker than John Edwards from a late night tryst. Obama seems to have a little trouble holding onto and expanding a lead.
Of course, that is because of all the overt racism in America. People could not possibly oppose him because of his policies so it must be that they are racists. He has a funny name and he looks different so people won’t vote for him.
In this year where it looks like Democrats are going to achieve huge gains in Congress, in a year where all the cards (even the race one) are in their favor, the Messiah is having trouble. By all rights he should have a huge lead over McCain and yet he is tied. Every time he gets a lead it does not last.
It looks like the sainted one needs some Liagra to help keep keep his deception up.
It will be a long three months watching this tragedy unfold.
