OBAMA PLAYS RACE CARD: RALLIES BLACKS, LATINOS FOR ’10 UPSET

Obama seeks to ‘reconnect…young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women’ for 2010

The Democratic National Committee this morning released this clip of the president rallying the troops, if rather coolly, for 2010. Obama’s express goal: “reconnecting” with the voters who voted for the first time in 2008, but who may not plan to vote in the lower-profile Congressional elections this year.

Obama speaks with unusual demographic frankness about his coalition in his appeal to “young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again.”

Turning out those so-called “surge” voters — who turned out for the first time to back Obama, but who sat out gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia last year — has become the Democrats’ central pre-occupation for the midterm elections, and the new Democratic effort to nationalize the election around Obama and his agenda mark an attempt to energize those voters.

    How is it the race card if the President rallies common sense democrats to vote for common sense democrats?? Y’all cry racism where there is no racism. Yet y’all deny racism where there IS racisim. Y’all gotta get a clue and educate y’all selves to what racism is really all about. Y’all hatred of our Genius President is racism. Y’all hate him cause he is a Genius Black man that made it to the very top.
