Helene Cooper: "Four years of covering Barack Obama, he does not play the race card. Not in a negative way. He does not do that."
Joe Klein, TIME: "He hates it. He hates it. He probably should, though. He probably should address it because the bitterness out there is really becoming marked.

Is this a broadcast from an alternate reality?
When did he stop playing the race card?
When has he NOT played it?
thanks for posting this!
...best laugh i’ve had all day !!!
Yeah, maybe O should take this advice.
End his convention speech by telling voters: If you don’t re-elect me, you’re racists.
Is that a joke?
As many brains as Howdy Doody. They are wooden people without an ounce of reality to them.
He has a painting outside the Oval Office with the “N” word on it. I don’t see how it could be possible for him to play the race card any more than that.
Klein is slick. He knows damn well the only thing the communists have left if their race card. They sure as hell don’t want to talk about their record and the economy. Stick with the race card RATS! The retards living in this country eat that crap up!
Allegory time, this is the final weeks of the Jim Jones now Obama cult. Now of course you “respectable” conservatives take the anti-white leftists seriously so you dismiss this, but if you watch MSNBC everyday they basically give Jim Jones’ final speech.
Same old Alinsky rules.
He’s been playing it 24/7/364 for 5 years now.

I was about to write a similar comment. I hope they take old Joe up on this suggestion. These folks are really on a different planet and in an alternate universe, actually.
To play the race card more blatently will go really well with their Muslim prayers, their war on Women, their LGBT demostrations, their tearing down the pro-life banner on the neighboring Catholic Church, the lecture by the defiant liberal Nuns, Sandra Fluke begging for more condoms, etc. etc.
Last evening with some friends we were discussing the end of the DNC convention when Cardinal Timothy Dolan will stride to the podium to issue a final blessing. We all agreed that was one time we wanted to watch to see if there would be smoke rising from the floor and a putrid smell in the room.
Would he have to start first?
We were told that Obama’s election would be a healing of racial tensions, and a beginning to the end of old prejudices, lingering since the Mayflower struck anchor. Instead, millions of people who were quite happy to be colorblind, goodwilled and fair towards all, have been called racists because of the social application of Critical Race Theory. White liberals are tripping over racist code words people drop while unawares they were thinking of race. The damned things are everywhere, mucking up and complicating the most basic communications. Throw them away. Obama has no political enemies, except those who hate him because he is black, even if they are unaware of their bigotries, or even if they hate him because he is gay, though they might be surprised to discover they hate him. We are all homophobic racists, and we are tried of it. We have learned our lesson from Obama, and believe it is time to send him on his way.
does Klein even realize or care how horrible (& racist) this statement is?
What? He’s got tens of millions of people to do it for him whenever he wants.
The ONLY thing he ever plays is the race card.
He's right; 0bama hates America.
Don’t throw us in that briar patch...please.
Just call everyone not voting for Obama and his policies racist.
Call everyone who disagrees with the current PC culture racist.
Call whites racist.
Promote that white guilt.
0bama doesn’t need to play “the race card”. There are thousands of stooges who do that for him. He can just stand back and pretend to be Mr. Nice Guy.
The same time he stopped campaigning... wait....
Well.. says it all, doesn’t it ;^)
I wish he would. Then he’d be done for. 2016 had a great point on how Obama succeeded where Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton failed because he didn’t play the race game. If he were to do that, though, and start accusing all those people who voted for him in 2008 but are now on the bubble about voting for him again in 2012 that they won’t do so because they suddenly became racist, then that’d be enough to sink him with those people permanently.
I can’t believe even Joe Klein’s fellow lefties do not laugh in his face every time he speaks. Then again, they’re a stupid and delusional as he is.
Please do...really want to piss more people off, play the frakin race card like no tomorrow! Dombarses have no clue how many people in this country tired of this race crap!! =.=
Dems aren’t playing the race care enough? OMG is this guy nuts or what?
Joe Klein is a major league Clymer.
I know. Obama could say, "Sure I was elected president of the Harvard Law Review but I didn't get every vote because someone didn't like the color of my skin'. No, wait, I think he did get every vote..
How about, "I was looking for a good job, but because of my color all I got was this White House gig." Nah - that might not work either...
Really, how could he play the race card?
