What is up with giving ammo to the racist Obama haters?
Usually when someone from the left criticizes Obama it's not out of racism. When someone on the right does, it is.
MikeB, how do you figure that? How is it in your mind that one from the left who would likely be more in line ideologically with Obama gets a pass for criticism but your default is that one from the right who would be way different ideologically is mostly racist? Why is it that you can't seem to wrap your mind around the idea that there are legitimate moral, philosophical and ideological oppositions to the current administration? It seems many use the default explanation of racism to avoid actually having a legitimate honest conversation. And as I have stated many times, I believe it is foolish to have race be a consideration for anything. Whether giving him the benefit of the doubt or criticizing him.MikeZ
I watch Fox News every day. That's how I know these things. When Cenk or Piers criticize Obama they're being straight, but when many of the righties do it, it's out of racism. Fox has pushed the idea that Obama is indecisive and has mismanaged the war against ISIS. But, I believe if he'd sent in the Marines and destroyed those fanatics already, the Fox line would be exactly the opposite, that he'd acted unilaterally instead of getting a coalition, or he acted too aggressively or any fucking thing to attack him. They hate Obama regardless of what he does and just like you, they claim it's honest and fair political disagreement. I don't buy it.
Of course you don't buy it Mike, you don't have enough political capital to spend on it. So you just make a default setting for it. Are all the blacks in this country racist for criticizing Obama as well? There are tons of black people that are completely dissatisfied with his promises and performance. How do you explain them? He cant even muster the Mexican support for him either, are they being racists as well for promises undelivered or promises that they didn't want in the first place? Or are the blacks and Mexicans only being half racist to his WHITE side? He does have one you know.
