Horrible! Obama Blames Racism For His Lower Approval Ratings
Gateway Pundit ^ | January 19, 2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 01/19/2014 12:54:01 PM PST by Hojczyk

Obama blamed his sinking popularity on racism in his latest interview with the >New Yorker.

It couldn’t possibly be his failed economic policies, the fact that he lied to Americans for years about Obamacare or his destructive foreign policy. No, it’s racism. Bloomberg reported:

President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today.

“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, appearing in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition.

“Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president,” Obama said in his most direct comments on how race has affected his political standing since he’s been in office.

That’s all he has..because he can’t actually blame all the horrible things he has done to this country on himself, so he has to blame racism, gee, I guess he forgot about his white mamma

This doesn’t surprise me, because it would take at least some intelligence to grasp why people don’t support him.

Can we just collectively say, “Awwwww, poor baby...”

Interesting -- and very telling -- that it is HE who actually said it. Usually, he sends forth his minions to parrot this line. The fact HE is doing it shows the deep kimchi he is in.

He'll be doubling down on the racist thing for rest of his term.

Recently, he said pot smoking was bad but since it was Latinos and Blacks who were going to jail for it (and not "middle class kids") he would help to legalize it.

Expect much more of this garbage.

Yes the Benghazi Scandal - that has to do with racism...(sarc/)

The Fast and the Furious - has to do with racism...(sarc/)

The IRS targeting the Tea Party - has to do with racism...(sarc/)

Spying on the media - has to do with racism...(sarc/)

Electing a known socialist twice to POTUS - has to do with racism...

Yeah - Barry - you’re half black — so what - everyone knows you are a lair - and that has nothing to do with racism! You created it - we didn’t - but we sure are getting the painful end of it!!!

I just learned something new - apparently racism can become dormant over many years, causing the racist to forget they were racist for that extended period of time. Must be, since that would be the only explanation for those racists who now disapprove of him to have voted for him twice.

“Obama blamed his sinking popularity on racism”

Obama is like a spoiled child. He refuses to take responsibility for anything. Nothing is ever his fault.

Every failure of his administration is either Bushes fault, the fault of racism or some other dishonest excuse.

The question is how many people are stupid enough to believe this.

Half black... He’s the one who plays the race card when he sees it favors him. But, that’s not racist. Is it?

The simple truth is that his particular brand of socialism is rubbing real Americans the wrong way.

Great logic. Those who voted for him, and who were propping up his approval ratings, did all of that despite being racists, and now they just can’t suppress their racism any longer - so his approval numbers are dropping. OK.

He truly is a narcissist. Nothing is ever his fault.

He should blame racism. HIS racism! He hates a majority of the American people and it’s obvious. How can he expect to earn our trust and approval when we know he hates us.

Obama is a racist. He needs to stop projecting.
