At some point, the Obama administration will have officially played the race card so much, that it will become completely irrelevant. How we haven’t hit that point yet is beyond me – but if Obama himself is using it, then his internal polling is indicating it’s effectiveness.
Via White House Dossier:
At a Washington fundraiser Monday night, President Obama subtly played the race card, suggesting that Republican presidential candidates would deny people opportunity based on the color of their skin.
The post then goes on to demonstrate three separate occasions in which either President Obama,or Michelle Obama, tried hinting that Republican Presidential candidates would deny people opportunity based on skin color or class.
First, the President at a Washington fundraiser:
Everything we fought for during the last election is at stake in this election. The very core of what this country stands for is on the line — the basic promise that no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, this is a place where you could make it if you try. The notion that we’re all in this together, that we look out for one another — that’s at stake in this election. Don’t take my word for it. Watch some of these debates that have been going on up in New Hampshire.
Then, to a Latino group in October:
I believe America should be a place where you can always make it if you try; a place where every child, no matter what they look like, where they come from, should have a chance to succeed . . . I still believe in that America. I believe we can be that America again.
And finally Michelle during another October fundraiser:
Will we be a country where opportunity is limited to just the few at the top? Or will we give every child — every child — a chance to succeed, no matter where she’s from, or what she looks like, or how much money her parents are? Who are we? That’s what’s at stake here.
If only Republicans govern with looks, race, and class in mind, then why is it the President who is always talking about looks, race, and class?
