It's not black, it's not white: It's obama
A New Republic article by Ruy Teixeira “The White Working Class: The Group that Will Likely Decide Obama’s Fate,” caught my attention. I particularly found the following interesting: “There will be a lot of white working class voters showing up at the polls next November, and the degree to which they support (or abandon) President Obama could very well make or break his reelection. In 2008, during his otherwise-solid election victory, Obama lost the white working class vote by 18 points. In 2010, however, things got much worse: Congressional Democrats’ experienced a catastrophic 30 point deficit among the same group. While the first number is a figure Obama could live with repeating, the second could very well prove fatal.” W/out going deeper into the context of the article, I jump to that which I and others have been predicting and warning about. This election is going to be about race. Some weeks ago in a previous “daily rant,” I pointed out that obama has nothing to run on but race. In a subsequent column I wrote, titled “The true face of racism: The white elite liberal” I took mary anne marsh to task along w/ maureen dowd for being two prominent faces of liberal racism. How does all of this connect? “It connects because the message will be white people hate that a black man is president. Cable programs will argue “is racism behind responsible for rejection of obama.” As I have commented on this page farrakhan is out front ripping obama for invading libya, but the other side of his condemnation of the invasion has been his claim that the white man got to obama and made him do things contrary to his true self. Ridiculous comments, but then what do you expect from a man who claims to have been taken up in a spaceship and a wheel. Obama has enlisted the aide of sharpton to keep blacks on the plantation – put everything together and you have a foundation laid for the one of the most race fueled elections in history. It’s not because he is kenyan and communist, it’s because he is bad for the nation, the economy, the military, the infrastructure, the medical community, immigration, foreign/domestic policy, and education – what else is left? Some say he is setting civil rights back, that is profoundly wrong – there is a difference between civil rights and race relations. It’s the latter that he is trying to damage, because that’s the tool he can use to get reelected. We must cut this cancer out before he further metastasizes.
