This Confirms What Most People Already Knew

There isn't anything post-racial about this President.

But Obama, in his most candid moments, acknowledged that race was still a problem. In May 2010, he told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent "Tea Party" movement that was then surging across the country. Many middle-class and working-class whites felt aggrieved and resentful that the federal government was helping other groups, including bankers, automakers, irresponsible people who had defaulted on their mortgages, and the poor, but wasn't helping them nearly enough, he said.

A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to "take back" their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn't dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a "subterranean agenda" in the anti-Obama movement—a racially biased one—that was unfortunate. But he sadly conceded that there was little he could do about it. [Emphasis mine]

It isn't the color of his skin. It's the color of his politics. Red.

Obama is either willingly ignorant about this or gleefully lying about the 'race' aspect of this. I'm guessing he's lying.

  1. The race crap is a posture of convenience for the committed Progressive, whose ideology depends on dividing people and agitating on the division lines.

    BHO demonstrated this when he went full-in "black" with his associations and fabricated public image, despite his white maternal heritage.
