Skip to comments.Video: Dan Rather: ‘Articulate’ Obama couldn’t even ‘sell watermelons’!

Video clip of Danny boy from an earlier Hot Air article: Rather on Chris Matthews show: "He's a nice person (only because he's a Democrat), he's very articulate but...he couldn't sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic."
....and let’s see if lefty Rather gets “busted” for it!
That’s right that is rascist! Imagining mentioning Watermelons and black people at the same time. My my my Dan Rather hates black people.
Beat me to it.
This is just a Southern figure of speech...and I agree. Obama is a crappy salesman! All hot air and no delivery OR integrity!
Here is a guy who uttered the words “And he got a case of the Buckwheats”
“Listen, he’s a nice person, he’s very articulate -— this is what’s [gonna] be used against him -— but he couldn’t sell watermelons if you gave him state troopers to flag down the traffic.”
It’s obviously Rather’s claim of what Repubs will say about Obama, and not what Rather thinks himself.
I can’t believe people are running with this...
It’s very obvious that he is mocking Republicans, imo...
To me it’d be funnier if he said Obama couldn’t sell fried chicken at KFC .... then too, Obama couldn’t sell five dollar bills on a New York street corner for a dollar ....
The issue isn't racism. The issue is that of endlessly being accused of racism. And that of endless race-baiting on one side. And that of self-righteous liberals using the charge of racism against conservatives, but not against their own.
Gosh, that poor kid (can’t call him a boy, that would be racist) is certainly getting a workout today.
It wasn't right...but it was sure a lot more blatant then.
"What you talking about Rather?"
You can say boy — look at all the “white boy” comments made by blacks. Also, the song “Play that funky music white boy”
is racist, is it not?
What a combo. Chris and Dan, but don’t call them racist. Mathews says after the state of the Union address that for awhile he forgot Obama was black. Then big mouth Dan says Obama couldn’t sell watermelons. Couple these mutts with reid and Biden and you could start a new wing of the KKK under the tutelage of KK Byrd. Can’t make this s$%t up. And do the race baitors, like Sharpton, Jackson or the Congressional Black caucas have anything to say....hell no.
Can you say “Alzheimers”?
Can somebody explain the racism associated with watermelon? I don’t get it.
