Some animosity against Obama is 'race-based' says Brown
Dayton Daily News ^ | September 18, 2009 | Tim Tresslar, Staff Writer

DAYTON — Sen. Sherrod Brown said Friday, Sept. 18, that he believes President Obama should have a health reform bill — one with a government-run insurance plan and universal coverage — on his desk by late fall.

The Ohio Democrat said he would be “hard-pressed” to vote for a bill that does not include a government insurance plan as one of the options available to people. He made his comments following a breakfast speech sponsored by the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Also Friday, an audience member asked Brown about comments by Nancy Pelosi, the U.S. speaker of the house, called on political leaders to cool down overheated rhetoric, lest it spark violence.

Brown said the animosity aimed at Obama, America’s first black president, was “pretty amazing.”

“I think some of the animosity against Barack Obama is race-based,” Brown said.

The comment drew some boos from the audience.

Brown said the people who dislike Obama for racial reasons represent a minority of those who oppose the president. But the senator added that he has seen racial vitriol against the president expressed through letters, emails and phone calls.

Is “Red” a race? Becuase that’s why I don’t like him, Hillary Clinton, or Pelosi—and two and a half of those 3 are whiter than I am!

The only ones that are raced based are the ones shouting “Racist”.

To characterize criticism of Obama’s policies as racist is a rather vile, evil and insidious manifestation of racism: It makes race more important than the debate over the merits of policy, it assumes that the President is inferior to any of his predecessors (since he requires special protection that they did not,) and it assumes that criticism is insincere based solely on the color of the critic’s skin.

12.8% of Barack Obama's support is because he is black.

Yep, no doubt the blacks hate the fact that he is mostly white, and sure as hell has never had the “black experience”.

When 98% of blacks vote for Obama, they are not voting based upon race. They are only considering Obama’s policies if they only knew what they were. Racism, according to liberals, is only applicable to white males.

No, it’s because this is the most radical leftist President ever. It’s a chilling lesson in what might have happened if Wallace had still been Roosevelt’s V.P. instead of Truman. He’s even left of Kennedy and Johnson, who at least thought we should defend the country.

Another spineless, wimp, panty-waiste hack whose ideas and values are rejected by the majority of Americans tries to shame people into agreeing with him and "Jimmy the Creep" by blaming so-called race for failure. What weakling, spaghitti-spined, slugs!!

Of course some of the animosity is race based, but no grounds exist to call everyone opposed to Obama a racist.
Anyone who voted for Obama only because of race is a racist but no one is commenting on that!

Ironic, isn’t it?

The kool-aid drinkers say that Obama’s election was healthy politics and the current opposition to his collectivist schemes are the result of racism.

But it’s really just the opposite.

Personally, I am more concerned about his being a Chicago politician than being half white/half black man: that and his associations with “the Weathermen bombers, militant communists activists”: He learned from one of the most entrenched corrupt systems in America. MO

All right, then so I believe that wraps it up with Sherrod Brown being the final white democrat in the world to pile on the the ‘racist’ bandwagon. Thank you Senator for this historic event.

What an idiot. I would have voted for Alan Keyes for president. I read all of Walter Williams, Shelby Steele, and Thomas Sowell’s books.

Disagreeing with the head marxist does not make one a racist.

Some support for Obama is race based.

The dems would have more credibility on this if they did not shout “racism” every time someone disagrees with them.

““I think some of the animosity against Barack Obama is race-based,” Brown said.”

Yep, and almost 100 percent of his support by black voters is race based too.

And dont forget the race based support of guilt tripping white “liberals”.

I like the booing part!

Yeah, we’d all just roll over for socialized medicine—if only it had been proposed by a white guy.

We also wouldn’t be opposed to Communist Revolutionaries in the White House-—if only they’d been hired by a white guy.

We’d really love the federal deficit—if only i had been run up by a white guy.
