Which comment do you think has racial overtones?
“This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen…So you can talk about Mark Penn all you want. “
..described then-Sen. Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect.”
If you picked the second one, you obviously can’t see a racist comment when you see one.
Obama puts out statement on Reid’s apology: ” I accepted Harry’s apology without question.”
While Bill and Hillary were run through the mud.
A series of comments from Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, her husband, and her supporters are spurring a racial backlash and adding a divisive edge to the presidential primary as the candidates head south to heavily African-American South Carolina.
The comments, which ranged from the New York senator appearing to diminish the role of Martin Luther King Jr. in the civil rights movement — an aide later said she misspoke — to Bill Clinton dismissing Sen. Barack Obama’s image in the media as a “fairy tale” — generated outrage on black radio, black blogs and cable television. And now they’ve drawn the attention of prominent African-American politicians.
“There’s a groundswell of reaction to these comments — and not just these latest comments but really a pattern, or a series of comments that we’ve heard for several months,” she said. “Folks are beginning to wonder: Is this really an isolated situation or is there something bigger behind all of this?”
I think the GOP do have a case for a double standard, just not the way they want it. The double standard here is not Democrat vs GOP, but Dem Party establishment versus anyone that don’t like. I think it is clear some DNC leaders, wanted Obama to win the Primaries. The Dem Convention in 2008 was a scam. They didn’t want Hillary to win. They wanted Obama, so when Bill made any comments that could be taken as racial. After all racism is the easiest ad hominum attack to level againt any opponent.
