This stuff is getting SOOO tiresome….and the argument has NEVER been valid….
Comedian, D L Hughley is noted in a recent interview with The Daily Beast with that lame contention that you don’t like Barack Obama as President because he’s black. Gee…I’m glad he cleared that up….hmmm…let’s see..millions of WHITE Americans voted for him in 2008…myself included…so…couldn’t be that…record unemployment..out of control spending…ignoring the Constitution…alienating our allies…monthly power grabs to avoid following the law…nah…couldn’t possibly be ANY of those things…you got me, DL!…It’s because he’s black….yep…that’s it….Hughley also went on to advise Mr. Obama that he should “demand” respect in this campaign. Little does DL realize, RESPECT IS EARNED, NOT DEMANDED! And Barack Obama has most definitely FAILED to earn mine!
Mr. Hughley’s comments are further proof that Mr. Obama’s supporters have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO OFFER IN THE WAY OF HIS DISASTROUS RECORD IN OFFICE! So they resort to a tired, worn out weapon in their arsenal of defense…call anyone and everyone opposed to this President gaining a second term a racist. That’s so beyond contempt and reason and such tactics are so transparent, it’s embarrassing for Mr. Obama…
It’s been a parade of figures in entertainment and the media…from Harry Belafonte to Morgan Freeman to Chris Matthews…throwing this premise out there because they KNOW they can offer no reasonable defense of this President and his policies. Mr. Obama has been an abject failure in office. He has offered nothing but callous disregard and condescension since day one. Yet, his allies continually resort to this baseless, worthless excuse.
The fact of the matter is, should Mitt Romney prevail in November, you can count on the ratcheting up of this sort of garbage…”Mr. Obama lost because of inherent racism in this country”…”he was attacked by racist conservatives…” and more of such crap. Sadly, I’m afraid we ain’t seen nothin’ yet…
