The Democratic National Committee released a video clip Monday of the president rousing his troops with what Politico, the Capitol Hill political paper, calls with artful euphemism, "unusual demographic frankness." The auguries for November do not look good, the president concedes, and he wants "young people, African-Americans, Latinos and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again." Many of these "surge" voters cast their first ballots in 2008 and then ignored pleas to turn out for gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia (or that famous Senate race in Massachusetts) and the Democrats took a licking.
No candidate, Democrat or Republican, would take the risk real and even frightening of drawing the race card unless absolutely necessary, of course, "absolutely necessary" defined as the occasion when his survival is at stake. Mr. Obama's survival is not yet at stake, but if a calamity like the big blowout of '94 falls on the Democrats again this year the president's prospects for re-election in 2012 would dim considerably. Now's the time for unusual demographic frankness of the kind that the Barack Obama of 2008 so eloquently denounced with word if not always in deed.

Ageist, racist, and sexist.
rats know they are in trouble unless they get out the black and hispanic vote and that is why bozo played his racial politics the other day.
imagine if Bush or Sarah said we need and want those white Christians to come out and vote for us again .
The media would be up in arms with their racial poltics but no bozo gets away wiht it again
The MSM will be running this racial card right up until election time now to get the black commmunity out and angry
no red states, no blue states, well where is the GOP saying about this , why are they not calling out these race baiters, staying silent does not work and one would think they would have learned this by now
Everything tot he far left is about colour, religion, etc and it makes me sick.
Throughout history they have always been playing race and they get away with it because people stay silent on the subject.
The GOP should remind who were the KKK, who were against civil right, which party MLK was for, who did segregation for the military
yep all the rat party s GOP get your mouth open and tell the black community and the dumb far left what true history is about
opening line...I’m betting we get to Post 15 before “Ace of Spades” is mentioned. Ooops.....
Every day is a good day to play the race card for BO. He takes victimhood to a new level.
...all the Messiah has done is play the race card....
The race card belongs to the Right, for it is the Left that is the nazi thuggish race baiters.
