Get this, the new Obama strategy is to call the ugly growing color aroused hatred, bigorty and all out racism in this county, a fear of "big changes" and of the growing role of government -- not racism.
But he can find a way to call out black folks.
Am I missing something or did President Barack Obama just become the national enabler of white bigorty, color arousal and racism in America?
As blogger Antoinette recently asked, Where are we going? Back to the Jim Crow days?
The major news outlets are have a field day on the whole Barack Obama denial of racism issue. News outlets such as, Reuters,The Washington Post, the the New York Times Jeff Zeleny are reporting on how President Obama said Friday that he did not believe his race was the cause of fierce criticism aimed at his administration in the contentious national debate over health care. The Los Angles Times is reporting on the strory from Washington, Mark Silva with The LA Times reports, - Fear of "big changes" and of the growing role of government -- not racism -- are behind much of the criticism that the White House faces, President Obama said during a sweeping series of television interviews to air Sunday. Mark also reports that Obama's media blitz is intended to promote his healthcare plans. But he confronts much more than that issue in the interviews, which will dominate Sunday morning's news shows.
In a number of interviews, Obama also addressed the tone of a heated summer debate over healthcare, and President Carter's contention that racism underlies critics' Hitler comparisons and other harsh attacks on Obama.
Obama disagreed with Carter, saying that the invective instead reflected the kind of turmoil that is common "when presidents are trying to bring about big changes."
"Are there people out there who don't like me because of race? I'm sure there are," Obama told CNN's John King. "That's not the overriding issue here."
As reported by the LA Times, Obama's interviews will air Sunday morning on ABC News' "This Week," CBS News' "Face the Nation," NBC News' "Meet the Press" and CNN's "State of the Union," as well as on the Spanish-language Univision network.
Millions of Americans will be watching our President try to twist and turn America's color aroused lemons into lemonade. Candidly I'm sure sure the Presidents attempts to twist the ugly growing color aroused hatred, bigorty and all out racism in this country into lemonade will cool the ever growing thurst of hatred towards him and black Americans.
The twist is that a twist. When we turn around and look foward, the ugly growing color aroused hatred, bigorty and all out racism in this county will continue to be acted out in America.
