Obama’s team suggests racism behind proposed Wright ad campaign
Daily Caller ^ | 5/17/12 | Neil Munro

Posted on 05/17/2012 3:04:40 PM PDT by Nachum

President Barack Obama’s supporters are raising a claim of racism to quash a proposed $10 million ad-campaign that highlights the president’s personal ties to his one-time spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright.

The pushback helps the campaign minimize Obama’s association with the controversial pastor, but it also keeps the public’s focus away from the stalled economy’s 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 Obama’s 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.”

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.

I suppose its too much to expect the GOP to stand up to this obvious ploy by Obama and his lickspittle toadies in the media.

Its so transparent its laughable.

“Obama’s 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)

Sure they do...when anything that is going to catch Obama in his own spitoon comes along, it is always, "racist."

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


WRIGHT REVEALS ALL ABOUT OABAMA

Watch the video at the link, and watch Hannity tonight for more playing of this tape. They had quite a bit on last night.

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...

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.

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.

There is something sinister going on, beyond the usual collusion between the media and the Obama administration. Apparently the PAC had not made any decision to run ads playing up Obama's ties to Wright, but all of a sudden the NY Times knows about the story and makes it a page 1 story? Do they have a plant inside the PAC, or an agent provocateur?
