Used to be, long ago, Americans would have rejected this sort of whining. But in the Obama administration it’s become standard. Blame, blame, blame others, and always declare or at least imply that the criticism one receives is due to race.
This has been the most divisive, whining, blaming administration in history, in addition to all its other flaws. And this modus operandi was foreshadowed even before Obama was elected. In fact, it’s part of how he got elected. During the 2008 campaign, Obama not only cynically played the race card, but he played it preemptively:
At a fund-raiser in Jacksonville, Fl….Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he expects Republicans to inject race into the campaign…:
Obama “The choice is clear. Most of all we can choose between hope and fear. It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy. We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”
Republicans hadn’t mentioned it and weren’t going to mention it (or even, for the most part, think it). There were plenty of other reasons to disagree with Obama and want him defeated. But Obama managed to finesse his opposition by implying that Republicans would either say it or think it, and that criticism of him was racism de facto if not de jure.
For example, “He’s young and inexperienced” was merely simple, obvious fact. But note how cleverly Obama linked it with accusations of a racist agenda on the part of his opponents. And his supporters and associates (including Eric Holder) have taken that ball and run with it very, very far.
