I have to laugh at the dried up, knee-jerk and lame attacks from the tired liberal left’s old guard these days. It seems they have decided to trot out the race card and try for more white guilt. I guess they missed the memo.
In 2008 America elected an African American (or Black if you prefer) President. The colored/minority glass ceiling was busted for all time. I come from Virginia, the home of the capitol of the confederacy, and also proudly the state with the first black elected governor – Douglas Wilder. We have moved on from the race wars of the 50′s and 60′s. In 2008 the idea of people of color being inferior as a group was finally killed. Individual failure was not.
If liberals think they are going into the 2012 election crying ‘black victim’ while this economy is in this bad of shape they need to rethink their strategy. I for one am all for it, because it is time the the old ‘victim-hood’ political complex was dismantled anyway. It is a relic filled with relics pining over times long gone. They are actually the last barrier to finally breaking down the walls between the races. It is such a failed strategy that it should consume any lingering credibility the victim-hood complex has. It will also have a negative effect on Democrats. Their call of course.
Even more insane is the left’s attempt to pit their whining against the real concerns out in the nation about irresponsible spending and incompetent government solutions. Do they really want a black verses middle America fight? Is the country even in the mood for one?
It is not racist to point out the Obama/Pelosi/Reid policies have utterly failed economically. It is not racist to point out that pathetically error ridden global warming models have failed in predicting the impact of CO2 (which is actually a lagging indicator of warming, not a driver). It is not racist to point out Obamacare will cripple this economy and its health care into ruin. There is no desire to have a race conflict right now outside the usual complainers. They don’t number enough to make a difference.
Face it, President Obama just does not have the experience required to be an executive or understand even small business (let alone the larger forms). It is a personal failing, not a racial one. Liberal ideas are dying against the crucible of reality. They are failures and so are their proponents. Sorry, but not everyone gets to be right – no matter how hard one wants it or believes they deserve it.
If someone like Maxine Waters wants to go out looking the fool and claim Obama’s problems are due to the ghost of white racism and slavery long gone – it’s a free country. And it is also a free country where you can dismiss such relics for what they are. We elected Barack Obama with great fanfare and hope – and yet he failed. If Obama was really as good as everyone claims, he would walk above the pettiness of those Neanderthals still caught up in the racist insecurity that plagues bitter failures. In fact, even in failure as President he does walk above those racist rejects of human society.
Obama was just not up to the job of President in these hard economic times, and the black community only shows its glass chin when it complains it is unfair to hold Obama to the same standard as every other President.
