MSNBC: Obama graded harder because he's black (Dog-Whistle Racism From MSNBC?)
Washington Examiner ^ | 4-21-11 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 04/24/2012 6:46:12 AM PDT by tcrlaf

MSNBC hosts agreed this weekend that white voters hold President Obama to a higher standard than his white predecessors because he is black.

"[Obama] now has a specific record of governing," MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry said today on her show. "A record that, I contend, because of his race will be held to a much higher standard than it would have been for a white incumbent. Those white voters who found what they were looking for in 2008 will not necessarily be so enthusiastic in 2012."

Alex Wagner, host of MSNBC's NOW, agreed. "I think race absolutely has to do with the conversation about reelection," she said.

CAN YOU SAY "DOG-WHISTLE RACISM"???

It's NOT because the Obama brand over-promised, and undelivered, it's because WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACISTS!!! WHO KNEW!

The alternative side of MSNBC's racism is "we shouldn't have expected Obama to follow though on his promises, because he is BLACK!". How do these klowns get by with this crap?

What a pathetic excuse. the "You aren't ALLOWED to citisize Obama because he's BLACK!" excuse isn't going to fly this time. Obama promised the sheeple Unicorns, and delivered a schit sandwich, instead.

Anybody remember Peggy Joseph from the Obama Orlando Rally?

Dear Melissa Harris-Perry,

You need to be more nuanced and recognize that Zer0 is a white black.

Earth to MSMBC:

Your president is graded F because he’s a vapid dork.

Were he white, he’d still be a vapid dork.

He is the ultimate example of a quota baby...all show and no talent.

Vapid, vapid, vapid, dork, dork, DORK!!

Maybe the practice went all the way back to his time at Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard, which is why we have never seen his University transcript?

Wow, even though I ignore these foolish TV networks I have heard of anchor and anchorettes. This is one dunce whose name I have not heard. Is she a “typical white person” as Big Earred Barry would say or is she an anti-white bigot?

This is just part of

“He’s black so you can’t criticize him”.

Obama was selected by the commies SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE his skin color is a scrutiny shield.

I grade against obama because he is against principles that were formed when America was formed and against all that I was ever taught by tradition and in school!

Shut the F*** UP Joe Gehrke.

Household incomes are DOWN $3,000 because of Obama.

And he's playing 100 rounds of golf that I am paying for!

It's not his skin color. It's his policies!

Nahhhh.

Just look at the numbers:

joblessness,
college students un or under employed,
housing price declines and rampant foreclosures,
increases in food stamps and welfare,
increases in disability applications because people can’t find jobs,
fuel prices shooting up,
food prices showing significant increases due to inflation,
ineffectiveness at fixing social security,
ineffectiveness at fixing Medicare,
etc.

Those numbers have nothing to do with the color of Obama’s skin. They are directly related to his policies and ineffectual leadership.

Obama is getting a helluva lot of passes because he is black. Bush would never have survived three years pulling the crap Obama has.

State-controlled media grades Ubama on a curve because they are racists who believe blacks are inferior and can't be held to the same standards as everyone else.

So when 94% of black people vote for Obama are they racist?

Down $3000 per family? No, that’s an average.

Probably more like “Down $9000 per working family”.

This is an attempt to rebuild “White Guilt” so the poor racists can have penance by voting for the black man.

That is some funny stuff right there.

Obama has been graded on his own special curve for at least the last 40 years.

Seems to me that the claims of MSNBC that whites are racist in their attitude towards Obama is completely off base. If racism were involved wouldn’t he be held to a LOWER standard, suggesting that because he is black he is LESS capable? Holding someone to a higher standard suggests that he/she is capable of being held to that standard...

You’ve never heard of her? She’s on MSNBC a lot.

Maybe you don’t watch MSNBC???

I channel surf, and sometimes stop on MSNBC. And it seems that she and that dude “Toure”, are there lecturing us about this and that.

Why is it that liberals tend to lecture?

If a white guy had pulled 1/2 the stuff Obama has, there would be people with pitchforks pulling down the Whitehouse fence.

He is forgiven and his Marxism overlooked because of his skin pigment.

I really hate the left. They are wicked and self-destructive, and they are taking us all down with them.

I resent the living crap out of this type of accusation. The MSM’s very definition of racism is people who don’t take color into consideration, and yet this type of evil spews out the other fork of their tongue.

“give him more slack because he is black”

Oh no! That would be racist too. I guess we’re just expected to either say how wonderful he is or shut up. The liberals view everything through the prism of race. Makes it difficult to have an intelligent or meaningful conversation with them.
