Ah, the left is at it again; calling anyone who has the audacity not to agree with the policies of President Obama a racist. During an interview President Carter said the following: “…the overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity is based on the fact that he is a black man an African American.”. I could go into a long thing about race. But, plenty of other people are taking care of that part of the story.
My issue is where were the follow up questions for President Carter?
Why didn’t Brian Williams of NBC ask some of the following questions?
Were we racist on election day? After all he won. No candidate can win a national election with just the support of black people. Obviously white people voted for him. We couldn’t have been racist on that day.
Were we racist on inauguration day? His presidency was being touted as one of the most important things that ever happened to this country. It was a historic day for sure. We couldn’t have been racist on that day.
Were we racist the first six months of his presidency when his approval ratings were at near record levels? The approval ratings of the president were hovering at near historic levels for months. Again, this had to include support of other races. We couldn’t have been racists during those months.
Do you think that people who believe in limited government would like President Obama’s policies if he were white? The policies are increasing the size of the government and increasing the dependency we have on the government. Wouldn't that make them unhappy regardless of color?
Do you think that people who are fiscal conservatives would like President Obama’s policies if he were white? He is spending money that we don’t have in levels that we have not seen in decades. Wouldn't they oppose it anyway?
Fiscal conservatives were unhappy with the spending levels of President Bush who was white; wouldn’t that fly in the face of your premise?
And they wonder why we don’t trust the media.
