Let The Race-Baiting Begin

President Obama at a rally in Philadelphia:  “”They’re counting on young people staying home and union members staying home and black folks staying home.”  “They,” of course, are those dirty racist white tea baggers.

With 90% approval among blacks and just 36% among whites, I can understand Obama’s desire to get out the black vote as much as possible.  But it is more than unseemly for a president to make racial appeals of any kind. 

Once again, just imagine if a struggling white Republican politician were to make a similar argument.
