Matthews: Will Voters Be Reluctant To Dump The First Black President? (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | April 19, 2012 | Ian Schwartz

Posted on 04/19/2012 2:52:32 PM PDT by i88schwartz

On Thursday's broadcast of "Hardball," host Chris Matthews discussed a path to victory for a second Obama term: being afraid to kick out the black guy.

Matthews wondered if there would be "a reluctance on the part of the voters and the political community" about "dumping the first African-American president."

Chris Matthews: "Let me ask you about something which is not in the polling, but I want you as experts -- Barack Obama is the first African-American president, okay. Is there going to be a reluctance on the part of the voters and the political community that talks politics as we get into November about dumping the first African-American president? Is there going to be something that just wretches people? 'Wait a minute here, this guy is going to knock out the first guy who got aboard?"

Yes, let's drive the country, and by extension the Free World, off the cliff just so we don't look like racists.

Is this what we are reduced to? Talk about racist-- we don't dare hold Obama to objective performance standards.< / sarcasm>

That was a helluva reason to vote for this disaster, eh Chrissy?

His race obsession continues.

He’s always going to be the first (half) black president, no matter whether he’s reelected or not. I’d like to make him go down in history twice-over for being the first black one term president.

Sounds like the Libs are becoming apprehensive that Ye Ole Race Card might not work like it did in 2008. All that White Guilt might have dissipated enough to cause The One to lose.

Obama is going to have to grow up. His father dumped him; a few years later his step father rejected him and his mother abandoned him.

So all those years.. and it's time that Obama faced it -- he is not and never was a genius, messianic personality. That is not why no one ever said No! They were not in awe.

They felt sorry for him and because he was tending left and he was identifying black.. they never said no because they were afraid of being called racist.

And then to compound problems he was raised as a Marxist-Alinsky spoiled brat.

For Obama's own good we need to elect someone new.

I don’t know how somebody can expect that a person who believes in racial preferences in public and private employment, school admissions, and government contracting, who becomes President, will contribute to racial harmony, no matter what the race of the person who becomes President.

It's this simple,Chrissy:in 2008 we judged him not by the color of his skin but for what we *hoped* was the content of his character and the extent of his abilities...in November,we'll be judging him not for the color of his skin but because of what we now know to be the content of his character and the extent of his abilities.

Just think Jimmah....you remember him,don't ya?

I totally agree with this.

I think a lot of people voted for Obama because he was black. They wanted to feel good about themselves.

I can see some Peggy Noonan type idiot making such a calculation.

It may indeed be the thing that saves Obama.

Wasn’t Clinton the first black President?

And he was termed out of office.

This guy, what does anybody own him? He was given a shot, the job was found to be way too big for him to fill, move on in further quest for excellence, or at least a better grade of mediocrity.

Matthews wondered if there would be "a reluctance on the part of the voters and the political community" about "dumping the first African-American president."

Chrissy will be depressed to know many of us can hardly wait for this man to be unemployed as the nation's president. He should never have been elected in the first place and about 75% of us want to correct that democrat "mistake." In fact, we can hardly wait for November to vote him out.

Only a damn fool would be reluctant to drop kick the sob out. I’d even pay to move him to a location my choice.

If we don’t exile the maggot he will continue to stir up trouble. He is going to have to end up like Napoleon.

Talk about desperate! Most non-blacks voted for him as an experiment. The experiment failed, Chrissy.

I did not vote for o’blamer - voted for Palin. But Chrissy’s grasping did get me thinking that over the years I’d never heard anyone say that they wished they could vote for a black or even a woman. That dog just won’t hunt but very revealing that the left are counting on people not realizing what rolling the dice on that particular black man has cost them.

Your double racist if you voted for and elevated a black man just so that you could knock him off his horse 4 years later.

Racists are sneaky like that.

I loathe libs like Romney, but what if Romney chose Allen West as VP candidate?

A least it would make the racism arguments more interesting, just like a Herman Cain nomination.
