A senior adviser says Obama disagrees with those who see racism at play
President Obama doesn't believe that racism is much of a factor in the wave of opposition to his policies evident at rallies and other protests around the country this summer. Obama acknowledges that many Americans oppose his ideas on healthcare and other issues, but he disagrees with those who see racism at play, a senior Obama adviser told U.S. News.
Obama, the first African-American president, still feels a strong sense of approval and affection from the crowds that he speaks to, a replication of the positive attitudes he felt from voters, both white and black, during the campaign. Obama believes that any racist sentiment against him is held by a very tiny minority that doesn't reflect the attitudes of the vast majority of Americans, the senior Obama aide says. Obama tells friends that the American people have been very "welcoming" to him, and he gets the feeling that they are still rooting for him to succeed.
The media, including CNN, Fox News, columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times, and writers in the blogosphere, are raising questions about whether the anti-Obama movement is tinged with racial prejudice. Some critics have also questioned whether Republican Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina would have disrupted President Obama's address to Congress last weekcalling Obama a liarif the president had been white.
He’s playing like he always does - he’s the cool, unoffensive guy...
but he lets his minions do all the screaming.
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
He doesn’t need to.
Obammie’s Commies will ensure that ANY criticism of the Commie-in-Chief is rooted in racism.
I see BO is lying again.
If he were any kind of a leader (or man) he would hold a prime time speech and rebuke the democrats for their overuse of the word racism.
I think we’re starting to see the tipping point
where everyone is shouting “racism” and no one is listening,
or worse, ridiculing the shouters.
If Bummer himelf is denying racism, why doesn’t the Rat media listen?
That's because he knows he can't honestly claim to be an authentic US African-American. He can claim no cred other than melanin count.
Once again, cooly detached and floating above the fray, as the ObamaMedia and his race thugs do the dirty work for him.
You have him pegged.
What a fraud. The Big O can act so holy and pure by claiming to be above it all and wink to his MSM worshipers, “Go get them.”
Yep, he can stay above the fray and look magnanimous.
By the way, who was the first and only person to bring up Obama's race during the presidential campaign?
Not according to Jimma: Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst to President Barack Obama during a speech to Congress last week was an act “based on racism” and rooted in fears of a black president.
“I think it’s based on racism,” Carter said in response to an audience question at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta. “There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.”
That’s Jimma for you!
Its the Obozo style. Oppose what you hope others will do for you and do nothing as they do.
Obama Doesn’t See Race as a Factor in Criticism.
I agree however you can bet the present first lady Michelle sees nothing but white robes and burning crosses when pictures of tea parties are shown.
Either he’s more intellectally honest than many of his sycophants among the elite, or he’s deliberately playing role #1 in a “good cop, bad cop” shtick.
Certainly race plays a part in the criticism of the criticism.
Dhimmi Jimmuh, a disgrace to the USA and to the South, can kindly go and kiss my cold instant grits. With is visceral hate of Israel and the Jewish people, Jimmuh is in no position to say and any damn body’s act was “based on racism.”
Naturally Hussein gets to fake taking the “high road” while his media flacks play the race card on his behalf. It’s GOOD to own the MSM!
He can't say this. This is one of the "strengths" in the talking points of the Democratic Party. Without it they don't have a rebuttal to the GOP talking points.
He’s only saying this because HE HAS TO. He doesn’t want to irk swing voters in swing states such as NC, VA, OH, etc. He probably agrees with Carter for all we know.
Got to give the ZERO credit for one thing, he KNOWS why we hate him.
Per main stream media, doesn’t this make Obama a racist? I mean by definition if you don’t think race plays a factor in criticizing him, that makes a person a racist doesn’t it? I mean, I am being told essentially that I am a racist because I too happen to believe race does not play a factor.......so that in and of itself makes me a racist right?......somebody help me.....I need to know.....am I a racist?......this is so confusing.....thanks.
I think you are on to something!! Eureka, we have found the gail!!
Your statement implies that HolyO STOPPED lying at some point.
I see no evidence of this!
Because he ISN’T denying it—he’s just saying he’s not going to DWELL on it—meaning—OMG, half of the freakin’ United States is racist and hates him because he’s a BLACK man!!! Run away!! Save yourselves while you can!!!!
