The Race Card

The race card: it’s worse than the Queen of Spades in a game of Hearts. The Left says Obama doesn’t play it enough. They’d probably say that my referring to the President as “Obama” is racist. It’s President Obama, not just Obama.

With the Left, everything can be viewed as racism. Disagree with Obama–pardon me, President Obama–and you’re a racist. Disagree with Bush ‘43, and you’re a patriot. See how it works?

The President was elected, then re-elected, in the least racist country in the world. He said in a recent interview in The New Yorker magazinethat, “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.”

Is this true? Probably a little. You will never be able to eliminate all racism. You can’t legislate against stupidity, right? That being said, we’ve come a long way. I mean, our President is only half-white. That has to count for something, doesn’t it? Maybe the racists only hate 50% of him?

Even the President went on to say, in that NYM interview, “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.”

He’s right on this one. I’ve said ever since he was first elected, President Obama was elected precisely because he was African-American; Kenyan, to be specific. I’m kidding! “Nope, Scott, you’re a racist.” Darn it, I’ve been outed! I’ve always said I don’t care where the President was born, I only care where he currently lives, especially when, as he’s moving in, he says, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

That would seem to be a more realistic reason why people “dislike” the President. Only those on the Left want this country “fundamentally transformed.” The rest of us want it tinkered with, improved, or left alone. China needs to be “fundamentally transformed,” as does Iran. How about Saudi Arabia with their wonderful women’s rights? Try being a homosexual in Riyadh. See how well that goes over with the powers-that-be. The list of countries that need transformation is a long one, and the U.S. shouldn’t appear anywhere near it.

Obama is disliked because he is a horrible President. It’s really that simple. He’s disliked because of ObamaCare, period. He’s disliked because of the IRS targeting conservative groups. He’s disliked because instead of heading up the “most transparent administration in history,” he’s been the front man for one of the most opaque White Houses ever. He’s not disliked because of the color of his skin; he’s disliked because he’s in over his head–and has been since the day he took the oath of office. Our country has been reeling ever since.

Iraq is once again a mess. So is Afghanistan. Iran had sanctions lifted and in return they’ll now get a nuclear bomb. You’ve heard of win-win deals? Well, that was a lose-lose; something only John Kerry could come up with. Syria looks like a huge success in comparison, and 1,300 civilians there were gassed by their own president. Benghazi? Ask Ms. Clinton how that turned out. (Then again, “At this point, what difference does it make?”)

I list all of Obama’s accomplishments overseas because his work here at home has been even worse. Unemployment continues to go down because people have given up looking for jobs. For the “Hope
