You've probably seen this by now: Obama blames racism for poor poll numbers.
President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today.
“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, appearing in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition.
Hmm, this guy gets elected twice but NOW when his poll numbers begin to really tank it's racism? It just couldn't be, y'know, the unbridled clusterf*** that is ObumbleCare, right?
Buuuuut, let's not be too hard on Prez Lemon; he did tell us to consider the "flip side": "Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president.” "Some" to Boss Obama must mean (in certain cases) "over 95%" since that's the rough percentage of blacks who voted for him.
All in all, this little anecdote should be no surprise whatsoever. It's meant to evoke [white] guilt and [black] "I told you so's." And, like pretty much everything else in his pathetic administration, it puts blame everywhere but on him.Posted by Hube at January 20, 2014 03:30 PM | TrackBack
