Show me the race-baiting in his comment on Katrina:

"Look at what happened in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast when Katrina hit. People ask me whether I thought race was the reason the response was so slow. I said, "No. This Administration was colorblind in its incompetence."


Quoting rocketracer:

Spot on being racially divisive and using the black community.


Quoting _Kissy_:

He's spot on

Um, wasn't this covered 4 years ago?  We've all seen it.  It's a speech he gave at HU in 2007.

The prepared text of the speech was disclosed/discussed.  The prepared text didn't match the actual speech and the media back then didn't pursue it.

When Obama said the federal gov't wasn't spending money on Katrina he had to know he was lying.  Two weeks prior to that speech the fed gov't gave 7 BILLION dollars no strings attached to New Orleans, LA.  He was a sitting US Senator.  

Typical race baiter....in his speech whipped up racial divsion...saying the federal gov't doesn't care about you because you're black.

I so agree with what Tucker Carlson just said ... different cadences, different accents, different gestures ... there is a falseness and he is definitely playing a role in one of them.  

Which one do you think is a role?  Maybe the one where he is using the teleprompter?  Just sayin ...

No, the video has been on Youtube since it was given, and was watched and debated (esp by the right leaning media) during the elections.  I specifically remember this.

Same old BS - here's Obama talking about his good buddy Rev Wright, whom you all have decided is a racist because you refuse to take his sermons in context or are incapable of understanding where he's coming from.

Either way, this is old news.  And it really wasn't news when it was new.

Maybe he's purposely changed his speaking style to me more palatable to all Americans instead of to a more narrow audience. It doesn't have to be fake, it can be experience.

Does the black community really like hearing that they are victims over and over and over?

Nope. He spoke of poverty and minority businesses not receiving more funding. The only "black" reference I heard was more blacks are in jail than in college...and no blame was attached to it, just states the fact. Link me to or quote it here where the racial division was "whipped up".

Newsbusters article from 2008 discussing the video (not the transcript, the video) and making the same lame conclusions everyone else did:

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/warner-todd-huston/2008/03/16/contrary-claims-obama-very-close-racist-preacher-wright

i.e. that ship has sailed, but good luck getting it back to port so you can launch it all over again.  I'm sure all the other irrational Obama haters will pretend they never saw it before with you.  "Oh the racism!  Oh my ignorance!"

lol
