Skip to comments.McCain camp: Obama playing 'race card' (calls Obama divisive)
Posted on 07/31/2008 11:08:42 AM PDT by dennisw
As Democrat Barack Obama accuses Republican John McCain of trying to scare voters, McCain's campaign manager is now accusing Obama of raising race.
Campaign manager Rick Davis issued a statement today saying, "Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck. It's divisive, negative, shameful and wrong."
At issue are comments that Obama made in Missouri on Wednesday.
"Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they're going to try to do is make you scared of me," Obama said. "You know, he's not patriotic enough, he's got a funny name, you know, he doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."

Call him out John. Way to fight back for a change!
If McCain is playing the race card, then Obama is playing the Messiah card.
Using the D word on the Democrat race baiters. I love it!
“Obama playing the race card?” DUH, you think!!!
Obama plays the race card all the time—its one of the few cards he has to play. If it wasn’t for race, he would not be where he is today—Expect more of this in the weeks to come.
John must counter this least he be painted as a racist.
“...he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”
Oh, I don’t know, I think if you put a beard on Obama, he and Lincoln could be brothers.
Let us begin with point one:
As a matter of fact, Senator Obama, I AM QUESTIONING YOUR PATRIOTISM!
When you sit at the feet of a minister who damns America for 20 years, I QUESTION YOUR PATRIOTISM.
When you establish and nurture relationships with people like Bill Ayers, a domestic terrorist, who is on record as saying Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon, I QUESTION YOUR PATRIOTISM.
When you stand with politicians and prevent this nation from securing its own sources of energy, and thus become energy-independent, I QUESTION YOUR PATRIOTISM.
When you publicly declare I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction and say nothing about standing with our armed forces who are sacrificing themselves to defend our way of life, I DEFINITELY QUESTION YOUR PATRIOTISM.
Go ahead...Senator, or anyone else on this planet...refute this if you can !!!
He did. It's what the article is about.
Obama is the ultimate Trojan Horse for the left as they can always claim “racism” when he or his ideas don’t pass the smell test.
'Boma doesn't even have any slave ancestors
His daddy was a sperm donor from Kenya (harsh but true)
Where does he get off telling anyone about American racism
Hussein is a fake phony fraud
“McCain’s campaign manager is now accusing Obama of raising race.”
Don’t be so hard on Obama.
After all he attended a racist church for 20 years, what do you expect?
Pure talking points, McCain said zero about race and denounced anyone who did.
Paul Krugman on Larry King seems to think the latest McCain ad was subliminal racism because it had a black guy (Obama) with white women (Spears and Hilton) in it.
KING: Now, Paul, he uses Paris and Britney in that ad to begin it.
Again, the same question, whats going on?
KRUGMAN: You know, what it really is saying is that McCains got nothing. I mean they havent got anything substantive to run on. You know, hes trying to say Obamas bad for the economy. Its, you know, weve had weve had a Republican administration for eight years. It hasnt done so well. You know, it might work. People you know, God knows, theres a little bit of maybe subliminal, you know, black man/white women. Who knows what they think is going to happen here.
Black Whiteguilt Oblack is a Racist.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Obama is Black?
HuffPo is saying McCain is using the race card against Obamessiah! lol
If McCain campaign had brains, could be doubtful, they are more than lucky that Barry always steps in it...um....however, they need to accentuate that Barry and his big head are really more divisive, pitting blacks against whites, patriots against subversives, old against the young, Americans against Euros, etc.
Surely this is a plus for McCain if his campaign uses it right. Remember that Barry has claimed he is a uniter.
*sigh* I wish McCain could thrill me.
Obama’s running a three card monte scam
“Leave Barack Alone!”
Obama can play the race card because he’s black. (A very real and challenging dilemma, proven by this comment itself being considered racist.)
Well, he’s insinuating he’s the president already, again.
Leave Barack Alone!
Looks like the same gay dude who ranted & cried about Brittany Spears. They must have hacked that video
“The Spears ad was a direct hit as evidenced by the Drive-Bys outrage;”
HuffPoers are outraged by the ad and are saying it`s racist. One poster said the ad leaves the impression of white women being terrified by a sex-crazed black man.
reparations for obama-because whites will not vote for him or his shallow stature.
