Right-Wing Media Hopelessly Confused About Their Race-Based Attacks On Obama
Continued from previous page
Meanwhile, Instapundit noted with glee that a screenshot of the lengthy address showed Obama "pounding" the lectern! (He's angry!)
You get the idea.
The convoluted message? Obama's a race-baiting monster who's (still) black!
All of this though, came on the same day conservative George Will complained that Obama's minority status might secure his re-election because, as Rush Limbaugh put it yesterday, Obama was an "affirmative action hire." Appearing on Sean Hannity's radio show last week, conservative columnist Michael Barone made the same point, suggesting people don't want to be seen as rejecting the first African American president. And they don't want to admit that he's a failure, as Will argued.
Aside from the immensely condescending opinion that Will expressed, claiming unserious voters will punt an entire presidential election in order to not "give up on" the first African-American president, the columnist suggested race remains the dominant issue when evaluating Obama.
Will cynically claimed race is a huge asset for Obama, while Hannity and company clearly hope race will be used to drive the president from office next month.
Confirmed: When it comes to the right-wing media and race-based attack politics, they just can't keep their stories straight.
