Democrats To Play Tattered Old Race Card For Midterms
What else do they have? Well, there is the tired ol’ War On Womens. But, they want to avoid Obamacare (again). Can’t run on the stale economy. They have a president who acts more like a dictator. So, Race Card it is!
(The Hill) Democrats are injecting race into the 2014 midterm elections amid fears that a drop-off in minority voters could severely cost them at the polls this fall.
Democratic leaders in Congress and administration officials have suggested GOP opposition to policies ranging from immigration reform to ObamaCare are, at least partly, motivated by race.
More broadly, they’ve suggested conservative Tea Party criticism of President Obama is based on the fact that he is black.
Democrats reject charges that the rhetoric is a concerted political calculation on their part as they try to retain their Senate majority and make gains in the House.
“You turn out voters by demonstrating your past performance and what you’re promising to do for a constituent in the future,” said Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. “I don’t call that race-baiting. I call that a political platform.”
In other words, this is all Democrats have. A platform of pitting Blacks against Whites, stirring up racial animosity. That said, one commenter has a good point
The problem is that their race-baiting is effective, the minorities will continue to vote for Democrats even as they sink deeper into poverty, even as the administration tries to legalize millions of low skilled illegal immigrant workers into a country that already has extremely high unemployment in the black community. Because, you know, it’s all the Republicans’ fault.
But, if you talk about race relations and you’re a Republican,: then you are a h8er and a racist.
One of the things Democrats will pimp will be voter ID as being raaaaacist. Strangely, Democrats do not notice that claiming that Blacks are too stupid to earn a few bucks to purchase an ID is kinda racist.
