Pundit Asks “Would Dumping the First African-American President Be Racist?”
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 21 April 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 04/21/2012 11:03:04 AM PDT by John Semmens

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews wondered whether it would be racist for voters to oust Barack Obama from the presidency.

“When he was running in 2008 there was some speculation that not voting for him could be construed as racist,” Matthews remembered. “Then he was only a candidate with little political experience. Now, though, he has three plus years as president under his belt. He has the executive experience he lacked in 2008. And incumbents are generally reelected. If he gets bounced by someone who has no presidential experience wouldn’t that be even more racist?”

Matthews further suggested that “to judge him by white standards seems inappropriate. The whole notion that a person ought to excel or achieve—isn’t that what people of color call ‘acting white?’ Shouldn’t breaking this stereotype be one of the objectives of America’s first non-white Chief Executive? I mean, compared to other African-Americans hasn’t Obama done quite well? He’s not on drugs. He’s not in jail. He’s head-and-shoulders above his racial peers. Isn’t that a record deserving of a second term?”

Its getting harder & harder to seperate the satire from the reality.

I fully expect Matthews and his fellow media slime to actually pose this question between now and November.

Oh you’ve got to be kidding me! We shouldn’t judge him by white standards? And we are the racists? These people make me puke.

It wouldn’t be “rasis” because we’re going to throw the white crackers in his administration out with him.

Democrats have never had a problem with lynching blacks, including their political careers.

It is our duty as U.S. Citizens. They can characterize it any way they wish. Racism won’t get another pretender elected again for at least a generation. When the next President and Conservative Congress turns it around,, Progressives will be exposed big time!

Electing someone for that reason, would be racist.

Just saying...

Yeah, racism is relative nowadays, because when a black kills a black in self defense, the one with the gun (Zimmerman) gets to be called white.

It’s racist of Mathews to suggest people are evaluating the president on race instead of performance.

I would rather elect Hogan’s goat. At least when the goat screws up we can call attention to it without being called racists.

Love your work.

Chrissie is a self hater and brings up the self hate.

With the Zimmerman case, it’s all I needed to hear about liberal racism: when two black people get killed, the one with the gun is white.

So Chris is promoting slavery while blaming us with guns for being responsible for it. Typical liberal.

Even if I promise to ONLY vote against his WHITE half, the Libs will still consider me racist.

Hell, if I were to vote FOR him (I must discipline myself for even letting the thought cross my mind) they would still call me racist.

Well, the white-black Muslim didn't work out too well.

Maybe we should try a gay, albino Hispanic or a transgender, dyslexic Asian next time.

Or perhaps... a dead cat.

MY answer to them is that failure doesn’t have a race so no dumping him is not racist.

He’s not really the first black president he’s the first white-negro president. I think. Not entirely sure about Woodrow Wilson.

It would be racist for me to treat a black person, candidate, elected official or president, any differently then I would treat a white person, candidate, elected official or president, with whom I disagree and whom I think is the wrong person for the job of president. To treat anyone a certain way just because their skin is white, black or any shade in between, would be racism, as the treatment would be based on solely on skin color. I see Barak Obama as no different then other Democrat candidates who I disagree with. The media sees them as black or white or somewhere in between and that is racist.

Dumping the first black-white “President” sure would be smart!

12% of the American population is black. How can a 50% majority be racism? That is bull!

If Chris had asked, I would say based on the economy if he isn't replaced voters are racists. John Kerry could not get away with an economy like this. I could even Clinton could sell this.

Obviously no Republican could.
