The Race Card and the Victim Card

Isn’t it interesting how Barack Hussein Obama repeatedly plays the race card? Here’s a direct quote from Obama:

“What they’re saying is ‘Well, we know we’re not very good but you can’t risk electing Obama. You know, he’s new, he doesn’t look like the other presidents on the currency, he’s a got a funny name.’”

It’s as if Obama was expecting John McCain to mount a racist attack, and since he hasn’t done so, Obama has to go to the trouble to imply it himself. Obama expected to fight a race war, so he could play the victim – and when it didn’t show up, he has to pretend that it did, so he could still play the victim card.

Also, I wonder why he’s ashamed of his middle name?

I hate psychological manipulation in all its forms. When Obama tries to play at being the victim of racism, looking for sympathy as demonstrated by this direct quote; well, that’s manipulative and I don’t like it. Anybody with any gumption wouldn’t need to invoke this crap. Besides, he’s personally wealthy and successful – he doesn’t look like a victim to me.

I can’t speak for anybody else, but my vote will be cast based on a number of criteria: honesty, morality, experience, direction, ability, and how these match up to the needs of the country. You will notice that neither race nor gender is on this list.
