CHRIS MATTHEWS: Put 100 of these people in a room. Strap them into gurneys. Inject them with sodium pentathol. How many of them would say "I don't like the idea of having a black president"? What percentage?
CYNTHIA TUCKER: Oh, I'm just guessing. This is just off the cuff. I think 45 to 65% of the people who appear at these groups are people who will never be comfortable with the idea of a black president.
There you have it. If a white guy was threatening to fine people who don't buy health insurance, force older Americans in front of a death planning committee to advise them of their options, ration care, limit choices, and diminish the quality of the world's best health care system these ignorant crackers and misguided Uncle Tom's would be shouting "hallelujah, guvmint, please take over my life!"
Cynthia Tucker is a lightweight airhead, so her comments are ultimately pointless. However, this line of attack is being used by Democrats and Big Media across the country. This is further proof of the cynical way in which Liberal-Leftist-Progressive-Socialist-Democrats manipulate the issue of race and truly do not have the interests of Blacks, or any other group of Real Americans, in mind. They put socialist ideology ahead of individual liberty. Fomenting racial divisions where none exist demonstrates they will say and do anything for power. Considering it was a Black man who was beaten down by SEIU thugs outside a town hall in St. Louis and a Black man who challenged Maryland Senator Ben Carden over fining citizens for not carrying insurance.
This is ultimately about freedom and liberty. The same jackals who have cried "keep your hands off my uterus" when it comes to abortion now want to turn every American's body over to the government at all stages of life. The government will pay for your abortion. They will pay for Chaz/Chastity Bono's addadichtomy. Criminal illegal aliens will have get free health care from the U.S. taxpayer, but those same taxpayers will be considered criminals if they pursue care outside of a government mandated program.
The word "racist" now has about as much sting as "doodoo head." The word once had power when segregation and discrimination were a part of daily life. Now, its just a cheap insult used to score political points or a trump card to cover a losing argument. I don't care if the President is a Lynyrd Skynyrd-listening, baseball-loving, truck-driving, white guy who lends me his lawn mower and his condo at Hilton Head. If he supports socialized medicine, I will oppose him.
