I like the fact he sounds mildly worried that they might have had enough of his disengenuineness, narcissism, ego, lack of concern for their needs, partying instead of taking care of business and general incompetence that they might stay home or worse yet, vote for someone else.

Wait...

It's "partisan garbage" to post the other "_______ for Obama" groups, in a thread about "Obama playing the race card"?

Maybe it's putting things it context. Is "context" "partisan garbage"?
Playing the race card has been proven

What excuses you make is of no concern.

Of course it's "self serving" and "insincere". It's a political campaign.
Alright, then you don't have issue with people calling him out on it...I thought you were defending him.
No, not defending him.
I'm not an Obama supporter by any means.

Just hate fake outrage more than anything else.

Of course it's true.

Well, I find it supremely odd that the man who was supposedly going to get us past racism in this country has instead embraced racism where it suits him.
It is not odd. He simply doesn't recognize it in himself.

For decades, Democrats have suffered continuous and increasingly severe losses among white voters. But preparations by Democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class.

All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned
in favor of cementing a center-left coalition made up, on the one hand, of voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment — professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists — and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic.

Of course it's true.
So, hypocrisy is A-OK.

I think you might need to look up the definition of "hypocrisy".

It would be hypocritical for ME to be "outraged" at the idea of a "Whites for Romney", and not be "outraged" by this. I'm not "outraged" by either of them.

The fact that other people will get outraged isn't under my control. And it's not fair, I know.

But life isn't fair, and usually Conservatives are the first people to say that.

so, how long do you think that would last? seriously?
It wouldn't last long, and people would be "outraged" about it.

That doesn't justify getting "outraged" over a hypothetical situation, just because it's not fair to white people.

Life isn't fair.
ok, hey, tell that to the left, the only reason this is even an issue is the lines they have drawn. the crux of my not very outraged outrage is; the media will let this pass with nary a whisper....................and Gutter v. Bollinger is back up for grabs this year, that 25 year nonsense of O'Connor's may be a goner, wanna see outrage? wait.

You laugh, but in your own thinking, it is. You said 'whites for Romney' would be racist.

So, unless you are a hypocrite, 'blacks for Obama' is also racist.

So, which is it?

I certainly hope you aren't a hypocrite - seems like that should be a minimum prerequisite.
