Rep. Jackson Lee Plays Race Card in Debt Talks
July 16, 2011 by righthook38
It was just a matter of time. Yesterday, Representative Sheila Jackson Lee strongly suggested that Congress is being extremely difficult on the president, in regards to the debt talks, among other issues, because of his race.
First of all, it’s simply not true. Jackson Lee said no other president has been attacked in such a way, and she has never seen such disagreement and inability to work together. Uh…remember President Bush, lady? Liberals treated him with blatant contempt, and constantly called him stupid. Have any of our Republican leaders referred to Obama as stupid? I think not.
Secondly, has any other president run up the amount of debt that Obama has? Not even close. The current administration’s runaway spending is like nothing we’ve seen before. This situation is unprecedented. Maybe that’s why folks are being so hard on him. But I’m just sayin’….
Thirdly, note Jackson Lee’s comment….”I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president has received [these] kinds of attacks…..”. She just said a mouthful. It seems that’s the problem in a nutshell. They’re overly sensitive to the racial aspect. It’s been like this since Obama came into office. Over and over again, we’ve seen that when someone disagrees with Obama’s policies, they’re accused of being a racist. It’s the default argument, and one that is further dividing this country.
