It’s Not Obama’s Race, It’s That He’s A Bad President
MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer, during an interview with Pajama Media’s Tony Katz, suggested that people are questioning Obama and his policies because of his race. “They say that there are questions about him, not because there really are questions about where he is born, but because he is black,” said Brewer.
Katz’s response? It’s not Obama’s race. It’s that he’s a bad President.
KATZ: But this whole idea of race, you know what, if there are birthers and they’re all crazy and silly for actually wanting to see a birth certificate, well let’s talk about the racers, the people who believe that everything is a conspiracy about race. It’s Obama’s race that people want to see the birth certificate. It’s Obama’s race that people don’t like the out of control spending. It’s not his race. It’s that he’s awful. The policies are terrible. ObamaCare is a lie and a failure. QE1 and QE2 didn’t work. It’s crazy.
Notice that Katz even coins a term (at least, it’s the first time I’ve heard it) to describe people who allege that any criticism of Obama is motivated by racism. He calls them racers, and it’s a good term.
It’s time to admit that it’s possible to disagree with a liberal politician like Obama, it’s possible to oppose liberal political orthodoxy, without being motivated by racism or greed or hatred for the poor.Tags: Barack Obama, birtherism, contessa brewer, racers
