ELDER PATRIOT – As President, Obama has never held himself above the fray. In fact, he has almost always found a way to slither around in a most unpresidential way under it.
That was the case today when Mr. Obama used the occasion of a radio interview to, alternately, wallow in self-pity and accuse Donald Trump of being a racist.
He accused Donald Trump of fostering resentment by exploiting the anxieties of working-class males caused by “flatlining” wages. Speaking on NPR, Obama noted that “particularly blue-collar men have had a lot of trouble in this new economy, where they are no longer getting the same bargain that they got when they were going to a factory and able to support their families on a single paycheck.”
“You combine those things, and it means that there is going to be potential anger, frustration, fear — some of it justified, but just misdirected I think somebody like Mr. Trump is taking advantage of that. That’s what he’s exploiting during the course of his campaign.”
This is a new low in altering reality even for Obama.
Of course American workers are disgusted. Obama’s corporate cronyism, limitless immigration (both, legal and illegal) that has filled every one of the seven million jobs created under his watch, consistent attacks on their religious beliefs and culture, and complete disregard for indebting the children of these hard-working Americans couldn’t possibly have anything to do with their deteriorating financial positions, could it Barack?
Then the self-pity evidenced itself when he felt compelled to argue that the disapproval of his policies was due to the fact that he is African-American. Nice try, Barack. Just one thing, please explain the dissatisfaction blacks are feeling towards your policies.
If Americans were racists, Barack, we’d never have elected a drug abusing, gay bar cruising black man over a white war hero, in the first place. And if we were racist please explain why it’s the Republicans who are the only one’s with a black man on their debate stage?
Sorry Barack, you used your two terms to attack everything we hold dear and to turn our economy over to corporations, bankers and Globalists. Now that we’re on to you, playing the race card won’t save you. It isn’t racism, it’s policy, ask Jimmy Carter.
