I was reading an article today about how "if you listen to Hannity, Beck or Limbaugh, you'll think the president is doing a lousy job," but if you listen to anybody else, you'll think he's doing a great job.
There were several comments appended to this article, and more than one of them said, "The reason why Obama is getting all this criticism is because Hannity, Beck and Limbaugh are racist." But they went further. "Everyone who criticizes Obama is racist."
What these people don't seem to realize is that Obama is not being criticized as a man. (Unlike his wife, of course - who is insulted regularly about her looks and the way she dresses. But that's not racist either. That's just the way men treat women, regardless of what field they are in.)
He's being critizied on the issues. Let me repeat, ON THE ISSUES.
Listen to any of Limbaugh's programs and he cites SPECIFIC things Obama has done that are bad for the country. He, like Hannity and Beck and Savage, also cite SPECIFIC things that white folks do, like Robert Gibbs, Nancy Pelosi, Napolitano, ya da ya da. THey go after everybody who is not a democrat, regardless of race.
To state categorically - to believe categorically - that the ONLY reason why most Republicans and most Independents are tired of Obama is because he's black is just plain stupid.
