Obama Re-Election Strategy!
I don't have to tell you what that makes you
if you don't vote for me, right?
Now that that's been covered, lets' talk about the OTHER big strategy they will use:
"A vote against Obama proves you are a racist!"
Yes, it's deja vu all over again, to quote Yogi Berra.
First, look at this question Chris Matthews asked on MSNBC's Hardball:
Chris Matthew on MSNBC's Hardball Last Thursday
"Is there going to be a reluctance on the part of the voters, and the political community that talks politics, as we get into November, about dumping the first African President, the first African-American President? Is that going to be something that just ratchets people -- Waaait a minute here, this guy's gonna knock out the first guy that ever got aboard?OK, shorter version, courtesy of Ace:
"When are the people not on MSNBC going to be more overt in their support of Obama?"The other day Bernie Goldberg addressed what Matthews had to say:

In 2008, America's media fell in love with the idea of the first black president and as such decided to completely ignore any vetting process of candidate Obama that would have given voters a sense as to whether the junior senator with the completely undistinguished legislative record was up to the task.It's becoming pretty clear what the strategy is going to be. Voting for Obama in 2008 meant you weren't racist. And - SURPRISE! - voting for him in 2012 is ALSO the only way to prove you're not a racist!
Now, four years later, the same folks might just possibly push the idea that despite his shortcomings and failures in his first term, Obama should be reelected because it would be somehow wrong for the first black president to get dumped.
Martin Luther King Jr. once dreamed of an America where his kids "will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
Does that mean absolutely nothing to liberal media members anymore?
Think for a moment how insulting this is to people's intelligence. Liberals are all about race, class and gender politics to the point that people are told to stop making evaluations of leaders on the basis of any thing other than class, sex, and skin color.
You can't vote out Obama for being an incompetent doofus because he's the First Black President!
You can expect 6 months of this right alongside of 'Romney = Obama'.
