Raaaaacism, like flatus, is often closest to the emitter:
The key thing is that Obama is angry, and he’s talking not in his normal voice but in a “black dialect.” This strikes at the core of Obama’s entire political identity: a soft-spoken, reasonable African-American with a Kansas accent. From the moment he stepped onto the national stage, Obama’s deepest political fear was being seen as a “traditional” black politician, one who was demanding redistribution from white America on behalf of his fellow African-Americans.
Actually, President Obama’s voice is one of his better qualities. He consistently achieves a pleasant tone and cadence while serving a bunch of statist idiocy. To the tune of the Flintstones theme:
Race card. Meet the race card.
It’s the modern Commie’s favorite trope.
From the mouth of the Left,
It’s used like you’re a clueless dope.
Let’s ride with the family down the street.
The ACORN auto’s really sweet.
When you’re with the Flintstones
You’ll have a racially-guilted doo time.
A quota doo time.
You’ll have a gay old time*.
*In a future when all are legally required to co-star on an unspeakable 15 minute reality show to prove they’re not homophobic.
I realize that, to these flailing Lefties, playing the raaaaace card is the only way they can get electrolytes back into #OccupyResoluteDesk’s flagging campaign. It’s certainly easier than admitting the Progressive project is completely out of gas.

Jonathan Chait’s entry into the “if it’s bad for Obama, it’s racist” games is a keeper. What I love about this stuff is that liberals tend to insist how racism is not only repugnant to them, but alien to them. And yet, they continually demonstrate a sensitivity and acuity for spotting it that even real racists seem to lack.
We really need Amanda Marcotte to spin some theory that buggy makers in Lancaster County, PA are driving all this racial tension, due to hatred of the internal combustion engine.
Notice also that [Chait] inadvertently confirms the conservative criticism that it’s the liberals who are race-obsessed. In a melanino-centric politics, all events, people and ideas have to be translated through dark brown-colored glasses. Thus, conservatives criticize Obama for being essentially socialist, extremist, radical, and statist, which are all supposed “dog-whistles” for race. But when Chait expressly says that “the core of Obama’s entire political identity” is a political fear of being seen as a black politician, this is intellectual brilliance!
Or auto-moronic asphyxiation–you make the call.
Sorry, Jonathan, but the only one “blatantly lying” here is you. And your vile race-baiting is equal parts hilarious, maddening, unAmerican, and just plain pathetic.
