Obama Plays The Racist Orphan Card On McCain

There is a rather well known apocryphal story about a boy on trial for murdering his parents who then begs the court for mercy because he is an orphan. That is a perfect analogy for Obama and his MSM enablers today. After repeatedly using claims of racism as a means to deflect any criticism (see here), Obama now complains about being called to account of it by the McCain camp:

ABC News' Teddy Davis and Sunlen Miller Report: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told NPR's "All Things Considered" on Friday that he finds it "troublesome" how the McCain campaign has amplified its allegation that he played the "race card."

Obama added that the "eagerness with which they’ve done it indicates they think they can exploit this politically."

While Obama complained about the way in which the McCain campaign has amplified a "race card" charge that he considers "ridiculous," he indicated that "in no ways" has the McCain campaign "targeted race issues." . . .

Read the entire article. This is just insane.


Obama Camp admits McCain Camp has never directly or indirectly made race an issue (updated with thoughts from VDH).


McCain Camp declares war against the NYT editorial board over their assertions of racism.

Obama plays the race card again - and the NYT claims McCain is inserting race into the campaign.

In fact, Obama's campaign is based on racism--and we're allowing the left to again set the terms of the debate.
As long as they can shut down opposition by playing the race card--no matter how tenuous the link--and yet employ race themselves to advantage when it suits them, the right side of politics will be massively handicapped.
