Skip to comments.Donna Brazile Plays the Race Card. Again.
Posted on 09/17/2008 1:42:33 PM PDT by Pagan Power
In an interview with Roger Simon of Politico, Donna Brazile once again states that the reason there is hesitation to support Obama is because of his race. Shamelessly throwing her cards on the table, Brazile refuses to accept that many Americans just don't like Obama. Not because of his race but because he is an elitist, sexist politician, out of touch with the majority of ordinary Americans.
Like you and me.
She said that at times Obamas voice is strong and articulate, but people dont feel attached to him, and they have got to feel attached to him. That would answer some racial aspects that simmer below the radar and sometimes percolate over the top.So our not feeling attached to Obama is because those of us that do not support him are all secretly racists. Isn't that nice? I thought the time for racial politics was over. Frankly they sicken me. Every time Obama slips in the polls the knee-jerk response from Obama surrogates is that this is due to him being half black.
What utter, hateful nonsense.
I think it is about time that we all stood up and said enough is enough. The Democratic party is trying to mask the obvious fact that Obama is an unprincipled, unqualified candidate with accusations that the reason we don't buy into his bullshit is because we have racial issues. It is beyond disgusting, it is divisive. And UnAmerican.
Earth to Donna Brazile and all the rest of her DNC hacks: The reason we don't support Obama doesn't have a frickin thing to do with his race. And trying to make this campaign into a referendum upon race is exactly the opposite message that Obama himself claimed his campaign represents. It is an insult to the American people and it is exactly the "old" kind of politics that he claims to decry. According to Donna, if Obama isn't elected it is because the American electorate isn't ready for racial equality and healing.
He has had some moments where he seems unsure of his own voice, Brazile said, but I still think he can pull this off.
And if he doesnt?
If he doesnt, then Obama didnt lose, she said. The country just wasnt ready.
Uh excuse me Donna, didn't you just attribute some of Obama's problems to himself in one sentence? And then in your next sentence you seem to blame this on the American people? Which is it? For a minute there I could have sworn that you were placing some of the blame on your guy Barky. No way!
I demand an end to these attempts to start racial wars. Maybe all Donna can see is black and white. That is unfortunately quite possible. But the vast majority of Americans judge people based upon the content of their character. And Donna's, as well as Obama's, character is quite lacking.
Interviews like these only strengthen my resolve to work against Obama. And I ROAR proudly.
NObama! NO DEAL!
I do not vote for, nor like, Marxist of any color.
The DNC must have internals showing Obama getting crushed by White Males.
They told their media friends to push it, to get the White Guilt going.
Is donna brazill that midget woman?
Guys who spend their lives hanging around folks who hate this country and haven’t worked an honest days labor in their adult lives, but instead sat around getting high and talking about the greatness of South and Centarl american Marxists don’t connect with most americans!
Got nothing to do with the amount of melanin in his skin.
I think that’s Donna Shalala.
Umm, Donna, I don’t like liberals, in any shape, form or amount. I don’t like liberal white guys, white women, black men or women, asian men or women, latino men or women, whatever they are. That doesn’t matter a bit. I don’t like them because I oppose them IDEOLOGICALLY. I reject their philosophies.
It has nothing to do with them being whatever race or gender they are.
This is an example of cognitive dissonance from these liberals with huge blinders on. They just cannot accept the fact that people won’t vote for someone because they oppose their ideology, despite the fact people put forth philosophical, moral, financial nad other types of arguments as to why they won’t support their liberal candidate.
Insulting the electorate is just not the way to get their vote. I would call the “Bradley Effect” more a matter of the fact that pollsters may be able to subtly intimidate people into giving the answers that they want. But that sort of intimidation cannot extend into the privacy of the voting booth.
My greatest fear is that we are in a no win situation, regardless of who wins the election. If Obama wins, then it will be decried to the very mountain tops that his win is because the American people have given him an “undeniable” mandate to take the US socialist. But if McCain wins, then we will be inundated with cries that this is a “racist” victory that proves America’s racism, and that there is no mandate for McCain.
I fear, regardless of the final victor in November, then only way to truly cure the ills of the American system political, is through the, er, ah liberal use of torches and pitchforks. (With a massive helping of tar and feathers thrown in, for good measure)
Marxist or infanticide supporter.
Hell with internals, every poll shows him getting crushed, he’s down 10-15 among white women now, and would need to gain 10 or more points to get where Kerry was with white males.
This is what I find so insane about the latest national polling (last week or so), their internals when they are published show Fauxbama losing ground in every demographic, every one, he’s even down 5% from where he was a week or two ago among DEMOCRATS! Yet they are coming out with numbers showing the race closing???
I’m no rocket scientist, but something just ain’t adding up.
I’m a white guy, aged 18 to 54, EVERYTHING that goes wrong in the country and the world is somehow my fault, according to the media and the libs. Only problem is, I don’t give a crap what people I have zero respect for think about me, so I’m going to keep on doing what I think is right, no matter how much they wish I’d feel guilty over it.
There are folks who won’t vote for Obama because of race - but only because the race hustlers continue to throw it in their face - these people are not trusted by >80% of Americans and their constant vocal support of Obama (by way of the constant race card use) will turn off whites and others.
This should be our response every time someone brings up race: “It’s hard for the American people to trust a man who launched his political career in the living room of an unrepentant American terrorist.” End of story.
The intent is to play on White Guilt.
It worked during the primaries.
Initially, Obama was going to run a campaign that was ‘above’ the fray, that was lofty.
When they fell behind, out came the race card. Team Obama used it again and again until they locked up the Dem primary.
Now that they seem to be falling in the polls since the Convention, they return to ‘pre-convention’al wisdom — what worked in the primaries — namely, the race card.
Obama already has 95-98% of the black vote and that hasn’t changed. So, why else would Team Obama use the race card?
To play on White Guilt.
I always thought that when they needed a new DNC President, her name wasn’t even brought up at first. Howard Dean got the nod. She eventually gave them an “I don’t want it” ( but I do ) letter. I don’t think a black person was even seriously considered for it.
The other is to explain away an Obama loss in November. Racism just had to be the reason. The fact that he wasn't a good candidate will have nothing to do with it.
Oh you are right, thanks. I get the zoo of clinton supporters mixed up occasionally.
...is Donna the midget woman?
I can’t speak for her verticality - but from the looks of her - she is circumferentially no midget.
