Skip to comments.Obama’s team suggests racism behind proposed Wright ad campaign
Posted on 05/17/2012 3:04:40 PM PDT by Nachum
President Barack Obamas supporters are raising a claim of racism to quash a proposed $10 million ad-campaign that highlights the presidents personal ties to his one-time spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright.
The pushback helps the campaign minimize Obamas association with the controversial pastor, but it also keeps the publics focus away from the stalled economys high unemployment, deficit and debt.
The information campaign must be rejected by an act of moral leadership, the campaign claimed in a 1:35 p.m. tweet from Obamas official Twitter account.
Campaign manager Jim Messina also hinted that the proposed ad campaign outlined today by the New York Times was motivated by racism.
The blueprint for a hate-filled, divisive campaign of character assassination speaks for itself, Messina said in a press release. Governor Romney has fallen short of the standard that John McCain set, reacting tepidly in a moment that required moral leadership in standing up to the very extreme wing of his own party.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Them breaking out the “racism” card shows that this Wright issue was striking a cord with them.
Romney is a tool. To borrow from savage, he’s the fall guy.
WE WON! You know you have won as soon as the ignorant, lazy, inferior, scum of the earth play the race card.
We are racist. Thats it. Thats all they got. Boring
Its so transparent its laughable.
Well paint me surprised!
“Obamas team suggests racism behind proposed Wright ad campaign”
They also suggest racism behind the sun rising in the east and Mitt Romney’s hairstyle.
As someone who isn't white, married a woman who is, and have 4 beautiful kids from that union....I am glad to have an authority like Messina to help me figure what is or isn't racist (snicker)
That’s the dude who melted in Indiana Jones!
This administration would claim racism if the sun rises in the morning!
But guess what, it is his own former preacher, Rev. Jeremiah Wright that is the author of the new info and noose for Obama. He's not happy with Obama and is spilling his guts about him
Watch the video at the link, and watch Hannity tonight for more playing of this tape. They had quite a bit on last night.
of course he plays the race card.
in battle, you apply your strenghths.
can 0bama play to his ‘successes’ (0bamacare, greenenergy, cap-n-tax, etc)?
no...hence the race card...
Oh now, that is funny. Is Obama’s white side claiming reverse racism?
Racism is behind the very existence of white people. It’s much like the Palestinian position: Israel’s mere existence is a mortal threat to them, and explains why as a people they have managed to achieve so little.
They just might as well come right out and say it, “If you don’t vote for Barack Obama, you’re a racist.”
Racism is clearly behind this. I mean, have you ever read any Black Liberation Theology? That’s some pretty racist stuff.
So the GOP is racist for pointing out that Obama sat in a racist church for 20 years. Yep...
Kraut hammer just blasted rev. Wright as a racist preacher on Fox! Bret baier’s show.
He is spot on.
They are discussing this very topic....
All it takes is to confront the Obama strategy - that he is using race, women, economic class warfare - to divide the country and to distract from his obvious failures.
You don’t take the bait, you throw it back in his face and tell people about the rod and reel he is playing with.
Talking about the racist church Obama attended is an open invitation for the liberals to bring up the racist church Romney has been a member of all his life.
So exactly what race is a communist?
What race is a moslem?
What’s Obama going to do when white folks stop caring if somebody calls us racist.
It continues to stun me that in a nation of over 300 million people this guy was the best the voters thought they could come up with for the top job.
If that fact doesn’t make you despair for the USA...
My dc comment: Exactly. It’s not racist, it’s Wright’s OWN WORDS. This was O’s preacher for 20 years. An intimate friendship. McCain style Mr. Nice Guy campaigners get snowed by the vicious undercutting Obama.
Get ugly, be vicious like O is. Don’t bring a limp-wristed pansy to a knife fight. You got to be ugly to show ugly. People don’t want a goody two-shoes Republican that finishes last. America is tired of that. Get ugly Romney. Forget the pretense. Get that out of the way, then you can win.
Kind of early fir the race card, isn’t that,
I thought that the earliest you could bring one out was September.
If that guy were any more white bread his first name would be “Wonder”.
