Obama and the Democrats play the race card
By Yael T. Abouhalkah, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist
I see that Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has joined Barack Obama in warning Americans to watch out for the GOP playing the race card this fall. Heck, the Democrats are already doing that, to a degree.
As if people didn't know Obama is black, Sebelius and others are saying that Republicans would "try and frighten people about him" because of his race.
The Democrats are throwing out what they consider to be code words that might be used by people who don't want a black president.
Sebelius offered up "he’s not qualified" and "he's too liberal" as potential code words.
Obama said he might be called "inexperienced" and "young."
A lot of Democrats didn't think Obama was well-qualified to be president. That's part of the reason why millions voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries.
Face it: There are plenty of racist Americans who won't vote for Obama because he's black. We all know that.
But let's not allow Obama, Sebelius and others to chill the discussion -- by the GOP or Americans of all parties -- about Obama's actual qualifications for the presidency.
I agree...do not allow Obama, Sebelius and others to chill the discussion....it is called freedom of speech...we still have that in America...
