How unlike Team Obama to pull the race card when people express opposition to their policies.

Health and Human Services head Kathleen Sebelius, speaking yesterday to an NAACP convention in Florida, made the mind-blowing statement that people who object to Obamacare are the same types of people who opposed civil rights law.

In fact, Sebelius went so far as to lump the Affordable Care Act into the same breath with words like ‘desegregation’ and ‘lynching’.

Via CNS News:

“The Affordable Care Act is the most powerful law for reducing health disparities since Medicare and Medicaid were created in 1965, the same year the Voting Rights Act was also enacted,” Sebelius said. “That significance hits especially close to home. My father was a congressman from Cincinnati who voted for each of those critical civil rights laws, and who represented a district near where the late Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth lived and preached.

“The same arguments against change, the same fear and misinformation that opponents used then are the same ones opponents are spreading now. ‘This won’t work,’ ‘Slow down,’ ‘Let’s wait,’ they say.

“But history shows that upholding our founding principles demands continuous work toward a more perfect union…And it requires the kind of work that the NAACP has done for more than a century to move us forward.

“You showed it in the fight against lynching and the fight for desegregation. You showed it by ensuring inalienable rights are secured in the courtroom and at the ballot box. And you showed it by supporting a health law 100 years in the making.

Yes, the fight to enact healthcare reform is just like the fight to halt race lynchings.

Since new polling shows that 50% of Americans oppose Obamacare, we can infer using Sebelius’ logic, that 50% of Americans also support lynchings.

Is there any level in which the administration will not stoop, any situation in which they will not pull the race card on people who recognize the train wreck that is his Presidency?
