Democrats just can’t help it. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX certainly can’t help it. When policy debates go against them, they accuse their opponents of racism.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Friday strongly suggested that members of Congress are making it difficult for President Obama to raise the debt ceiling because of his race.
“I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness [toward] this president,” said Jackson Lee, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. “Why is he different? And in my community, that is the question that we raise. In the minority community that is question that is being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully? Why has the debt limit been raised 60 times? Why did the leader of the Senate continually talk about his job is to bring the president down to make sure he is unelected?”
Stunning remarks wouldn’t you agree? What are Republicans supposed to do . . . help Obama win re-election? It’s mighty hot this summer. Do we need these type of inflammatory remarks. Or is this another shot across the establishment bow, a warning that this hot summer could be a longer and hotter summer. Is there anything left in Detroit to burn that anybody would miss? No, decades of Sheila style governance destroyed that city (and many others).
Maybe one day before too long, the race card will go away. Maybe the mainstream media will finally cast it away. Maybe black America will decide they don’t need that crutch.
Hope and change? Fade to black.
