Posted on 01/09/2008 2:39:28 AM PST by chessplayer
On Tuesday's The Situation Room, CNN's liberal political analyst Donna Brazile, formerly an advisor to both Bill Clinton and Al Gore, hinted that she was racially offended by some of the former President's recent attacks on Barack Obama.

but that’s sexist against Hillary
Virtually everything said against Obama will hereby be “racist”.
Divide and conquer.
It’s just starting. Yesterday Chris Matthews on more then one MSNBC show predicted the next Clinton strategy would be to mobilize black-hostile Hispanics against Obama. I wanted to post this but couldn’t get a link acceptable and not banned by FR software.
“There’s a battle in the Democratic Party between the idealists and the interest groups,” Matthews began. “And in the beginning of every Democratic campaign for president, there’s an idealist who comes forward ... and they do very well in the first offing. ... And then the interest groups get all called in, the meal tickets, all the people that get something out of the party are bussed in, trucked in from out of town ... and they blow away the idealist.”
“They will find some way to counter this power. You watch it. It’s scorched earth, but the establishment in American politics almost always wins. ... All the people around the Clintons ... are getting together to try to figure out how to stop this. These are pros, who win year after year.”
“They’ll play on every heartstring. They’ll make Hillary a more sympathetic figure,” Matthews predicted, saying that between now and Super Tuesday on February 5, the newspapers will fall over themselves to give us “the new Hillary, the softer Hillary, the humble Hillary.”
“The fawning journalism is yet to come,” concluded Matthews. “It’s absolutely predictable.”
How can Bill be racist? Bill’s black!
You can be sure no one heard the bwitch when she said, “F***in’ N***** bastard.”
Actually, conservatives should find this development positive.
If the Obamanoids and the Clintlers each accuse the other of being “racist”....it would be fodder for the GOP in the general election.
Anytime the DNC tries to play the racist card...all the GOP candidate would have to say is “Obama thinks Hillary is a racist”. Of course, the GOP will need to run a real conservative
Many africanhyphenamericans come complete with a deck of 52 race cards to throw down during their entire lives. I believe that Barracks Hussein, and his wife, each have one of those decks and will throw them down at the drop of a hat. Brazile has one. The first “black” president doesn’t have a deck to counter Hussein’s. Anything negative directed by anyone at Hussein will be subject to being dealt with in the MSM and by the Hussein campaign with a race card. This will only be enhanced when both ahyphena fuehrers are onboard the Hussein campaign. One of them already is, but I think the convicted liar is not yet aboard.
Before this primary ends, Obama could be labeled as junior Al Sharpton by Hitlery? That will be a nasty fight, I suppose. If coupled with another scare by Jihadis(Iran or Bin Laden) or Kim Jong-il, GOP has a hope indeed.:-)
Some expert in S. Korea predicts that Kim Jong-il create some (military) provocation around this March if he does not get his way with regard to N. Korean nukes.
Oh No! This means for the first time in my life I completely agree with Chris Matthews.
It`s amusing. Brazile has been a loyal Clinton butt kisser for years, until Obama came along. Now she`s trying to use the race card against America`s “first black President.” lol
Obama's playing with a half deck.
The Clintoons will use every tactic against anyone who dares to challenge them. We are seeing classic Clintoon nastiness coming into play within their own party!!
Hahaha, race card, gender card, double helping of whine card...I wish the liberals would just destroy each other instead of trying to destroy America and conservatism.
Just another example of the true nature of liberals. One of my friends from college is in the Secret Service. She told me that when Pelosi became Speaker of the House (and next in line for the Presidency behind the Vice President), death threats against Bush and Cheney jumped dramatically.
Blacks need to be reminded that their First Black President all-time hero in Arkansas was William Fulbright, who, filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as well as voting against the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
Woofer, I know you typed that tongue in cheek. Actually he's playing with several decks. I was listening to WCHB AM (Detroit) yesterday morning when the biggest most giant publically racist ahyphena's show is broadcast. It was all about how, from caller after caller and host, that the Clinton's time has come and gone. Now its time for a "new face", "a brother". "Dey gonna try 'n keep him down" and yadda yadda yadda.
I think he can be beat depending on who the limp Republican Party fields, but Hussein will pick up many of those voters "who are too young to have any memory" of the Clintons. Those who have gone thru sensitivity training in the (non)Public Schools. All ahyphenas and all kool aid drinking George Soros clones. They will also have the advantage of all stay at home non-voters who don't like whomever the wimpy Republican Party fields--a tough decision to have to make for conservatives IMO.
don’t hate hillary enough to elect hussein, the irony would be too much for the mad mullahs
Let’s not forget the Clinton machine has strategically infiltrated the MSM. The Clintons’ placed/manipulated operatives favorable to themselves into key positions within the MSM.
Kaslin at CBS comes to mind. The deal with Vinod Gupta’s ORC at CNN as well. You can help remember more I’m certain.
A good example of how this is working for them is to watch/listen to the coverage since last night about NH. Note the “Informercial” style of reporting emphasis on Hillary. Note the headlines always lead with “Clinton” first. Note they always present the Republican’s in futilistic disarray, always with negative connotation.
I think the “Informercial” style feigned excitement over Hillary is hilarious myself, albeit apparently, unfortunately effective.
Sheeple are Sheeple.
“Kaslin at CBS comes to mind.”
Sorry Kaslin, I meant Kaplin.
Snort. So much for principle, eh Ms. Brazile?
Then again, if you had any principles you wouldn't be working for the Toons.
Black people’s obssession with the color of their skin — and their calculated penchant for making it the excuse for all of their cultural foibles — has long since become tiresome. It’s time for blacks to take responsibility for their own actions (like destroying our once-gleaming cities) and clean up their own back yard. Grow up!
Watch the video, and pay special attention to what Matthews says about Hillie's strategy involving pitting racial groups against each other...
Brazile: "For him to go after Obama using 'fairy tale,'
When did "fairy tale" become racist? Anti-gay, maybe. But racist???
And that will be the cause of the GOP getting only 7% of the black vote instead of the usual 8%.
But Bill Clinton can not be a racist. He was the first “black president”; therefore, by definition he can not be a racist.
Clinton got Obama to talk the civil rights talk - reminding everyone he’s more like Al Sharpton than Dick Chaney. In short, she played the “racist” card...
Chrissy found a true statement to utter. Well, I guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then.
Short of calling him "boy", the Clinton's pulled every trick in the book to bring out the "black" in Obama - down to and including having him defend MLK. I don't agree with Donna Brazile often, but she's on the money with this one... The Clinton's played the racist card.
If I recall, Bill Clinton was our first black President. Obama hopes to become our first black President also. Obviously, they are on a collision course; only one can be first. It’s a bit like a race, only Bill got there first. So we have two black men who are in dispute with one another, directly or through proxy. Up to this point, I kinda sorta follow liberal logic. But how can a dispute between two black men be racist?
Brazile is being a bit oversensitive here. It is a Presidential campaign, after all. Candidates do take shots at one another. It’s a bit like Clinton supporters saying criticism of Hillary is anti-feminist.
Its facinating to watch the black leaderships allowing the myth of Bill Clinton being ‘the first black President’ run smack into the face of reality.
I’m hinting that criticisms of Thompson are anti-white men.
< /Emperor Palpatine Voice>
The Rev. Jackson said this AM that blacks are waiting and wanting to hear Obama address the “urban” issues (in other words, they’re waiting for him to race bait) before deciding to support him.
Anyone hear any blacks claiming Clinton stole the election-yet?
First Oprah now Brazile. The first black President and his wife are slowly losing their black support.
Hey Donna.....They are RACISTS, and fellow Democrats will NOT vote for the BLACK guy....get used to it!
One photo of Jesse with Obama and he’s through...
You’re right. I endeavor as much as possible to avoid the bs stations—cnn, a, n, c because they have done just as you highlight for so long. There is a good posting on American Thinker today about the childishness of lefties which the MSM epitomizes in so many ways.
I heard snippets of the Clinton speech in question. If he said anything “racially offensive” I didn’t hear it. He was complaining about some of Obama’s campaign tactics, that’s all I heard.
exactly, Bill used “childish” references speaking about him....i was surprised (not really) that the press didn’t pounce on it....At this point, I actually feel for obama...they will win, he will be bludgeoned.
Believe it or not, I think she’s got a point. Let’s not forget that in the old South, one way to keep the black man down and disrespected was to call a grown black man a “boy”. The word “kid” is not that far away. How would any other US Senator react to being called a “Kid”? He is representing the people of Illinois, one of the largest states in the nation (population wise), and he won that seat in one of the biggest landslides in history (thanks to Keyes - but it’s not like we had great Republicans dying to run). I hope this campaign shows what kind of racists the Democrat establishment really is.
She’ll cave in and support Hillary with everything she’s got. She has to. She’s part of the partisan media shill community.
Once he knows his place they’ll take him back - - and yeah, I feel for him too.
