Barack Obama, Race Baiter

On Friday, June 20 at a Florida fund-raiser, Barack Obama proclaimed that Republicans will make the Presidential contest about race:

“The choice is clear. Most of all we can choose between hope and fear. It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy. We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”

I consider this demagoguery and race-baiting by a Presidential candidate to be appalling.

Now I understand that Obama hopes to be “Big Brother,” but I don’t think he has the ability to read minds.

Not to mention that racists probably wouldn’t vote for a qualified, accomplished African-American for President of the United States, so they certainly wouldn’t vote for him.

Such a campaign by Republicans, which only exists in Obama’s imagination, wouldn’t make sense. We saw that in his races against Hillary when he had extreme difficulty winning the big blue states.

It’s also ironic that Obama would assert that Republicans would run on fear, since it is a hallmark of the Democrats, such as their continued lies about social security.

This paranoid, mean spirited and divisive talk is offensive, and it serves to do nothing but drive a wedge in our country.

Obama - how about running on concrete plans and solutions, rather than the race card?
