Poor Jimmy Carter the Dems have thrown him under the bus yet again.
“The president does not believe that criticism comes based on the color of his skin,” told reporters in his Wednesday briefing. “We understand that people have disagreements with some of the decisions that we’ve made and some of the extraordinary actions that had to be taken by both this administration and the previous administration.”
I hope bookmark this set of remarks whenever someone plays the race card against someone disagreeing with Obama. I think the true racists are people like Maureen Dowd with this statement.
And New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote that “fair or not,” she heard “an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!”
She hears phantom things out of the bad old days of the 50s when her party was doing everything it could to keep blacks from attaining civil rights. I mean Jim Crow Laws were not passed by the GOP. It was Democrats that kept these things going for more than a century. It was GOP Minority Leader Everett Dirksen that was instrumental in getting the Civil Rights Bill passed in 1964.
