Nutpicking buffoons

From the comments at (where else?) Buffoon Juice:

I am white, and I am overwhelmed by the amount of subtle and not-so-subtle racism displayed by people on the left about Obama (I pretty much expected it from the right). The condescension, the disrespect, the sneering—it’s all so disheartening. Someone on a previous thread referred to Obama as a “deeply mediocre president.” I look at this man and all he has done, under such horrible circumstances, and I think that anyone who can call him “deeply mediocre” must be only able to look at him through some kind of demeaning racial lens. There’s no other explanation.

That paragraph encapsulates perfectly the cancerous effect that playing the race card has had upon our body politic.

First it was Bill and Hillary. Then it was Hillary’s supporters. Then it was the Republicans. Now it’s anybody who doesn’t think Obama is Teh Awesome.

    They went to West Virgina and found a racist old lady, therefore everybody in West Virginia is a racist.

  2. Yeah, if Obama is such a good president, why does he need to raise $1 billion for his re-election campaign? Only The Worst President Ever needs that kind of money, and it doesn’t matter what color he is.

      Good question ! It sends the wrong message “vote Democratic, it’s easier than working” just send me a billion-gazillion dollars and I’ll make it happen ! Might have worked in 2008…..?

    My favorite bit is of course that “there is no other explanation.” Yep, there’s only one possible reason someone would think Obama isn’t the greatest, most amazing, off the charts phenomenal, super president we’ve ever had ever. And that reason is of course that you’d have to be a racist.

    The ironic thing is, seeing race first and foremost as a reason for any negative reaction to Obama is of course, racist.

    “I am white…”

    Not to be impolite, but there sure are a lot of white people who have suddenly decided they’re experts on racism. Some of them are so self righteous, if you don’t sit down and STFU about Prez Obama, they’ll threaten to get a cross and a can of gasoline just to prove it.

      Annoying, ain’t they? They don’t even know they’ve been bamboozled and okey-doked. (shaking old gray head)

        and hoodwinked…

        Bamboozled, Hoodwinked, Okey-doked.
        Any reason why those 3 words just happen to be BHO’s initials?

        Coinkydink? I think not!

    I’m just sitting here having a nice time imagining these cretins heads exploding when he gets his ass kicked unmercifully in 2012. Perhaps they will all get so upset they’ll leave the country?

    A man can dream …

    Kristof column in 2007 (link no longer available)

    Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated, Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

    Obama’s stepfather, Mr. Soetoro was Muslim. I find that it’s not extraordinary if people believe that Obama is Muslim. People have the right not to believe a politician.

    The race card is also being used against Blacks critical of Obama. Tavis Smiley who was originally a Clinton supporter has been called Uncle Tom by many Obamabots since 2008. Currently, both Smiley and Professor Cornel West host a radio show and went on a Poverty Tour. They received a lot of heat from black Obots in the corporate media for speaking the truth and actually doing something to shine some light on poverty in the media. Radio host Tom Joyner and comedian Steve Harvey called both Smiley and West Uncle Toms out to destroy Obama for petty reasons because they weren’t invited to the inauguration or because Obama didn’t go to Smiley’s black state of the union event. These Obots really have no shame and no critical thinking skills. All they have left is the race card and they will attack anyone of any race who comes out with criticism of Obama.
