It’s not that his disastrous policies are causing the price of energy to “necessarily skyrocket”, bankrupting the country, and destroying the 40-hour work week, it’s not that he believes he’s a king and can pick and choose which laws or parts of laws to ignore or unilaterally rewrite. No, it’s none of these things. It’s because Obama’s black, obviously. You gotta get up pretty early in the morning to fool Brian Palmer at The Root. He sees wheels spinning inside wheels:
They know we can’t prove it. We can deduce and infer from their actions, statements and policies. But we can’t confirm that congressional Republicans, a bloc of nearly unbroken whiteness, and their media hatchet people are stealthily deploying race — blackness — to obstruct President Barack Obama at every turn.
“They never say their problem with Obama is that he is black, but look at the pattern,” Matthews said to an incredulous co-anchor. “The pattern is rejection of his legitimacy at the first point, saying he is not really here legally.”
This wasn’t a one-off. In a different segment, Matthews hammered Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus for Mitt Romney’s campaign quip, “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.” But he also took him to task for the candidate’s substantive statements, like saying that Obama had “a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements,” which wasn’t true.
“You are playing that little ethnic card there,” said Matthews to a momentarily abashed Priebus. “You can play your games and giggle about it, but the fact is, your side is playing that card. When you start talking about work requirements, we know what game you’re playing.”
Powerful stuff, which hit a wall of deflections and pooh-poohing from the other members of the all-white MSNBC panel. Google this event to see the national s–tstorm of denial that followed Matthew’s comments.
Clearly if Obama were white, we’d all be applauding his systematic destruction of the principles of freedom and limited government upon which this nation was founded. Most amusing about this tripe is that of all the left-wing nuts on MSNBC, Palmer avers that only Chris Matthews is bright enough to see through all this racist Republican subterfuge. As does Palmer. Which brings me to the one part of Palmer’s rant I agree with: Both he and Tingles are on the same intellectual plain.
