Obama accusing McCain of Racist Campaign

ABC has this (emphasis added):

Obama said that "John McCain and the Republicans, they don’t have any new ideas, that’s why they’re spending all their time talking about me. I mean, you haven’t heard a positive thing out of that campaign in ... in a month. All they do is try to run me down and you know, you know this in your own life. If somebody doesn’t have anything nice to say about anybody, that means they’ve got some problems of their own. So they know they’ve got no new ideas, they know they’re dredging up all the stale old stuff they’ve been peddling for the last eight, 10 years.

"But, since they don’t have any new ideas the only strategy they’ve got in this election is to try to scare you about me. They’re going to try to say that I’m a risky guy, they’re going to try to say, 'Well, you know, he’s got a funny name and he doesn’t look like all the presidents on the dollar bills and the five dollar bills and, and they’re going to send out nasty emails."

The bizarre thing is that Obama had made similar charges earlier in the day and had been called on them, but he claimed that it was due to other unnamed sources. You would think that he would have been more careful later in the day. Now he is saying McCain and Republican, so McCain is definitely implicated even if there are other unnamed Republicans.

I wholeheartedly agree, Obama and his campaign are stirring up hate, probably hoping to get a few extra votes by preying on peoples insecurities and guilt.

Well, his latest allusions that McCain and Republicans are "scared" of him because he doesn't look like George Washington is ridiculous. He is trying to redirect attention away from his neo-socialist ideology and his history of fraternizing with left-wing ideologues and outright America hating folks and bigots like Jeremiah Wright.

I really can't afford it, but I plan on donating $100 to the McCain campaign because of this race-bating crap.

It's unbelievable that this new agent of hope and change, with a straight face, says that his numerous references to the McCain campaign pointing out that Obama doesn't look like the faces on our currency were not references to race.

I'm sure he was referring to the different hair styles.

La la la la hopey changey!

When you know you're in trouble, throw out the race card.

I personally don't like Obama or McCain. I think McCain is just the lesser of the two evils (still evil) and I plan to write-in vote for Dr. Ron Paul, even if it invalidates my entire ballot, but Obama's accusations are moving me closer and closer to McCain.
