We’ll have to see if this one makes Anderson Cooper’s “Keeping Them Honest” segment on CNN’s “AC360.”

On Cooper’s Tuesday program, Democratic strategist and Obama 2012 campaign pollster Cornell Belcher took aim at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s response to a question from Fox News Channel’s Juan Williams during a Monday GOP presidential debate, saying it was “it was dog-whistle politics at its worst.

I did not like Herman Cain, but there is one thing I am certain he’s not, and that is a racist.

Now as for this clown with the witchdoctor hair, he’s got racist all over him.

We’ll have to see if this one makes Anderson Cooper’s “Keeping Them Honest” segment on CNN’s “AC360.”

On Cooper’s Tuesday program, Democratic strategist and Obama 2012 campaign pollster Cornell Belcher took aim at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s response to a question from Fox News Channel’s Juan Williams during a Monday GOP presidential debate, saying it was “it was dog-whistle politics at its worst.

That drew a response from Cooper’s other guest, former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, who noted that Belcher has made these charges before.

“This is the second time I’ve been on the show with Cornell,” Fleischer said. “Earlier, he said Herman Cain was a racist. Now he’s saying Newt uses these terms, as he put it. And what I hear, Anderson, is actually the opposite.”

Belcher then denied that he had ever called Cain a racist:

BELCHER: Well, you know, I agree with my friend, Ari. I wish I had the confidence. By the way, I never called Herman Cain a racist. I said –
FLEISCHER: You sure did.
BELCHER: His language was bigoted. No, I said his language was bigoted. I never called him actually a racist. I understand the difference. Because I understand. I never called him racist; I did say it was bigoted, because I do understand the difference between racism and bigotry.

However, on Cooper’s Sept. 29 program, Belcher had some strong words after Cain said, “African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded” to a conservative point of view.

At the time Belcher said it was “a racist, bigoted statement” and suggested that Cain be “treated like a racist and bigoted person who makes those racist and bigoted statements.”

It seems racist to me that the democrat party implies that all blacks must be democrats.

They are essentailly saying that melanin content should determine political persuasion.

I’m also sorry he dropped out too, granny. I was also for Cain. Whether or not he was ready for the job is debatable, but one thing I do know is that Cain is an honest man, and that is what I am looking for in my president.

That’s pretty good! I like it. There’s no way that muslim demon twink was ever American... every American boy can throw a baseball, bowl, ride a bike, etc., better than that phony can. Just watching the monster try to perform traditional American iconisms is all the proof one needs to know he is as fake and dangerous as allah. Obama. What American boy is given that f’d up muslim name? None. Obama, I challenge you to 30 seconds of bare knuckles drama in the public arena. We’ll give the proceits to pay down the national debt.
