Skip to comments.Matthews: Will Voters Be Reluctant To Dump The First Black President? (video)
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?"

How much you want to bet Chrissy?
Can’t wait to see his ass dumped.
Izzee kidding? Americans will be deliriously happy to dump this rookie jerk.
Is this what we are reduced to? Talk about racist-- we don't dare hold Obama to objective performance standards.< / sarcasm>
I’m voting for milk toast to make it happen.
McCarty 3:16 says I just fired your ass!
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.
IOW, you’re a racist if you don’t vote for him AGAIN.
It would happen sooner or later. Why not be proactive and make it sooner?
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’ll help him pack and drive the moving truck.
If Barry starts to fall behind in the polls, the race baiting is going to be epic.
I thought we voted without regards to race?
We already know most of the black vote is ready to go over a cliff for him.
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.
Just think Jimmah....you remember him,don't ya?
Da Bro’ Gotsta Go!
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.
I was called a racist the first time, guess they can call me a racist the second time.
I would give ANYTHING to install a FAST FORWARD button on my Obama Countdown Clock. ANYTHING!
275 days just seems so far off!
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.
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.
Penetrating political analysis at its finest.
Guilty white elites might have a problem - the rest of us vote on ability...
So, Chris is going to play the Race card this early in the game?
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.
They will when they get caught in one of the race riots this Summer.
yeah....but he’s a white African-American (right, media?)
Not just “no”, but “hell no!”
If it wasn’t for their voter fraud machine I’d say he is gone - our White House may have to be rebuilt and furnished.
or tingling 'Mandingo' syndrome at its grossest.
Dear Chrissy, Zer0 is a mulatto. Or to put it in MSM terms you can understand, a white black.
I dont care if obama is black - he is killing the nation off w his communist policies.
ABO!!!! LETS ROLL AND DRAIN THE DAMN SWAMP!!!
Just dump the white half of him.
but sometimes you have to flush twice if the deuce doesn’t go the first time.
VOTE EARLY .. VOTE OFTEN .. MAKE SURE THE DEUCE IS FLUSHED
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.
TY for correcting me on that. I had forgotten Chris Tingles.
