ABC’s Barbara Walters to Michelle Obama: ‘Will Racism be a Part of This Campaign?’: Interesting question. We’re tempted to say yes. This time around, just like last, a significant portion of the population will turn out and vote for the man simply because of the color of his skin.

I bet Jay Carney wishes he was getting softballs like that.

“Well racism be a part of this campaign?”

“Republicans see Blacks like Hitler saw Jews.” Al Sharpton on 05/26/12

Yes, if Sharpton, Obama, Holder, JJ, Farrakan and the NBPs have anything to say about it. The Democrats will rattle the race issue like maracas and if some people get hurt…well it’s just the price to be paid for Barry’s reelection.

WHAT AN ASININE QUESTION? Did she really say that? I don’t watch anything that has to do with the 0′s.

You can bet they’ll be sniping at Mitt’s religion, too!

Yes all the race baiters and haters will be screaming it very loud starting about Labor Day and then on the day after the election.

I won’t begrudge credit where its due: did y’all read the whole thing? Michelle at least tried to finesse it:

“For her part, the first lady gave a diplomatic answer and didn’t fall into the liberal game Walters was trying to play. Walters then went on to ask Mrs. Obama the question again after she failed to give an appropriate answer.”

Well, she’s probably treading very lightly because she doesn’t want to put any targets on Barry’s back.

In the story she was praised for “giving a diplomatic answer.” In other words, she was accurately described as not answering the question.

Ba BA Wa Wa has got to now be the dimest bulb in the house, where has this idiot been for the past three and a half years? It’s been nothing but racism either real or imagined since oba MAO took office.

Wait, you mean Baba didn’t ask her incredibly penetrating question – “If you were a color, which color would you be?”
