Racist Conservative Dolts, Not Obama, Responsible For Onslaught Of Scandals

Chris Matthews arrives at Time Magazines 100 Most Influential People Gala at the Time Warner Center in New York

Democratic apologists have had a busy few days as the Barack Obama Administration’s lack of competence has taken center stage in the American psyche with story upon story of scandal and screwup.

Those who feel the need to defend the President and his wayward Administration have used a variety of tactics, including: race baiting, claiming the President has supernatural power over Republicans, outright lying, and picking and choosing facts. The tactics are nothing new coming from people on the left, but the growing divide between Obama supporters waking up and those doubling down on ignorance is making the attempts more laughable — and frightening — than ever before.

Lefty talking head Chris Matthews has already noted that the tingly feeling in his leg has begun to lead to a bit more of a burning sensation, but he still can’t resist labeling as racists conservatives who are pointing out Obama’s debauchery. Full disclosure: President Barack Obama is sort of black.

During a recent interview, Matthews said he believes conservatives feel they are racially superior to the President:

But the problem is there are people in this country, maybe 10 percent — I don’t know the number is, maybe 20 percent on a bad day, who want this president to have an asterisk next to his name in the history books, that he really wasn’t president… He really wasn’t really the first African-American president. He really didn’t do healthcare. He really didn’t kill bin Laden. There’s an asterisk.

And they have been fighting like that, people like Donald Trump, since day one. They can’t stand the idea that he is president. And a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn’t like somebody in another racial group, so what. It is the sense the white race must rule. That’s what racism is. And they can’t stand the idea that a man who is not white is president. That is real.

That sense of racial superiority and rule is in the hearts of some people in this country. Not all conservatives. Not even all right-wingers. But it always come through with this birther crap and the other references and somehow trying to erase Obamacare, erase his record in history…

That’s the same sentiment that has been offered by Representative Emanuel Cleaver, a Montana Democrat, who bizarrely claimed that conservatives feel like the President has “taken control” of conservatives’ souls and that his “pigmentation” is responsible for the scrutiny.

“These people are obsessed with the president, he has taken control of their soul,” Cleaver said on MSNBC.

“It’s going to be very, very difficult for us to erase some of the things they’ve embraced,” he added. “They simply want this to be a figment of his pigmentation.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) somehow, remarkably, refrained from attempting to make conservative backlash a racial issue. Instead, she said conservatives are upset because Obama is just so damn smart and eloquent.

“This president — they make so much of these issues because this president is such a great president,” Pelosi told reporters during her weekly press briefing. “They will use talking points on Benghazi, they will use the IRS, they will use AP, as, I think, subterfuges — evasions — of what the American people want us to do.”

Pelosi went on to assert that conservatives need scandals because Obama, the “visionary,” has greatly outmatched them.

“He has a knowledge of our country and the concerns of the American people as of what plan we should go forward with to strengthen the middle class, and he has an eloquence to communicate that message,” she said.  “They fear that.”

And then there are those who don’t even believe anything has happened, like MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell. He said, during a segment of his show, that the Internal Revenue Service is essentially supposed to single out conservative groups.

“I do not believe what the IRS was reported to have been doing is an outrage. I believe that the IRS agents in this case did nothing wrong,” O’Donnell opined. “Let me say it again, you won’t hear it anywhere else: the IRS agents did nothing wrong. They were simply trying to enforce the law as the IRS has understood it since 1959.”

David Axelrod, a former top political adviser to Obama, absolved the President of responsibility in the IRS scandal by co-opting an argument that conservatives have been shouting for years: Government is way too big.

“Part of being president is there’s so much underneath you because the government is so vast,” he said. “You go through these [controversies] all because of this stuff that is impossible to know if you’re the president or working in the White House, and yet you’re responsible for it and it’s a difficult situation.”

It’s not like Obama is the Commander in Chief or anything.

    By reading this it surprised me to hear so many suck ups to Obamma, they think of him as if he were a GOD or at least something close to that. Pelosi really needs some waders, so it goes all the way up to her head. She is truely inamored with the prez. They all talk as if he has never done anything wrong and is perfect. They all need to grow up and get a real life, not in politics.

    • skippy

      Steve, great comment. But you see, Ovomit has done nothing wrong!! That’s the ‘beauty’ of the beast!! He’s never there, he’s never involved, he never makes decisions, he never knows anything that is going on, his hands are on NOTHING!! As you recall, when Senator, he always voted ‘present’….hmmm…real qualification there for a POTUS…yeah, sure, you betcha. Sure will be a hap-hap-happy day when he leaves the WH.

    • John Cherish

      In all reality Obama is not the president, he is a puppet…George Soros is the unelected president and sits behind the curtain pulling Obama’s strings making him dance for us. You can put lipstick on a pig and make him speak eloquently but in the end it is still a pig … Obama is perfect for Soros’s needs he knows nothing and is the perfect yes man. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, George Soros the same Hungarian Jew who ratted on his fellow Jews to the Nazi’s for part of the take

    • The Snarf

      It does, increasingly, seem like a cult. I remember hearing a while back about one of the celebs at the Soul Train awards referring to Obama as their ‘lord and savior’. As for Matthews, apparently his slobbering schoolgirl crush on Obama has dimmed a little,but is still going. Seems like he has declared half the English language as ‘racist’ in defending the indefensible.

  • Kat

    Why is it always some white guy screaming racism! This country has come a long way since the fifties, seems to me we are going backwards. That’s what happens when government gets too big for their britches. The problem really is that government is just too BIG!

  • weneedrubio

    They haven’t noticed that every time Obama answers a question he looks down and to the right? Come on people, this president is the beneficiary of every one of these scandals yet he had zero to do with them? Common sense is dead in this country and we need badly to revive it.

  • rendarsmith

    Did Chris Matthews support Herman Cain or Ben Carson? Somehow I doubt it. Geez! What a racist!

    • BTeboe

      I understand that where he lives is nothing but ‘rich white people’ and he sends his kids to private school. Hate mongering is how Matthews makes his money. He’s nothing but a pig.

      • momo

        Matthews is nothing more than limousine liberal with a do as I say not as I do attitude.

        I understand he sold his condo in Harlem.

    I’ve heard rhetoric like that before – it reminds me of North Korea.

    • CommonSense4America

      Sounds more like “Bagdad Bob”

  • TLC

    “He has a knowledge of our country and the concerns of the American people as of what plan we should go forward with to strengthen the middle class, and he has an eloquence to communicate that message,” she (Pelosi) said.

    Is that why a high percentage(60-70%) of the country feel Obama is leading us down the wrong path?

  • Nadzieja Batki

    The new Dem/Prog/Leftist mantra, “the GOP made us do it”. The Dems/Progs/Leftists will turn on the Conservatives and Libertarians and Republicans, the Christians and the Jews and any one else who notices the wrong and the evil that is done by the Dems/Progs/Leftists. The greater crime is not that they do the evil but that anyone calls them on it.

      ad hominem!

  • SmithWinston6478

    It makes him happy to hear people call him incompetent. It means they’re not yet on to his Trojan Horse mission of sabotage to destroy America. He’s doing exactly what he intended to do. He was never on our side, so he can’t be called a traitor.

    • Al Chemist

      That is a good quote, but would change it to “…it is all Crap flowing down hill.”

  • Al Chemist

    Obama is a crooked as Nixon, and as incompetent as Carter. Conservatives dislike of him has nothing to do with his pigmentation. After all, it could be the white half that makes him a liberal/commie, and that is what we dislike.

    • marylou

      Obama is an evil man with intent to be a dictator!

    • Motov

      I hate to disagree with you. Obozo has exceeded Nixon, and exceeded Carter on this subject.
      Nixon did the decent thing by resigning, and Carter, did the honorable thing by losing the 1980 election, without having an army out to manipulate the vote.

  • speedle

    Chris Matthews is a disgusting insult to manhood. This is not hyperbole. I really think this guy spends his evenings having a hired black man chain him up a whip him with a leather strap. He probably instructs him to not hit him anywhere it shows (for television purposes), but tells him to keep it up until his leg quivers. Geez, I think I will puke every time I see this guy on TV.

    • Jeff

      Let’s hope you keep puking for years to come.

  • crossrammed302

    Who cares what color his skin is? I could care lessif he was an albino I would still hate him based on his lies and the condesending way he looks out asnif how dare anyone question him. Savior of the middle class? MY A** he has done more to destroy the middle class and kick hard working Americans out of it than anyone. Actions speak louder then words. This administration follows the most anti-American path the world has seen since the Nazi invasion of Germany.
    Sometimes I wish I could be as clueless about the path we are forced onto by this president. Then maybe I wouldn’t cry when I think of the future my children will have to look forward to, if they get to live…. ignorance is bliss? But, maybe I’ll be glad I’ve prepared my family for the hard times when they get harder than they are now. I feel pity for those who are not aware or prepared because things will be worse for them and they won’t be mentally prepared to handle the situation.

  • Jim

    Progressives are in a world of their own. They have their own particular mindset as to what should be and ignore any and all facts that contradict their preconceived ideas. To justify their view point they use all sorts of muck and “slippery-slope logic” to get their point across. There is no logical argument against them . . . They are the modern day equivalent to “flat-worlders” and the-sun-revolves-around-the-earthers” Nothing you can say or do will change their mind.

    • Jeff

      Really? Because they disagree with you? Funny how the actual Flat-Earth people who believe every word of Genesis to be literally true regardless of science are all right wingers. But why should facts get in your way?

      • Seanoamericano

        Yeah and it was southern democrats that started the KKK, yet everybody else is racist. global warming is based on fraudulent science and the left embrace it as real. The left is proud of fraud lies and the belief that everybody is as dumbas a rock like them and intolerant of anything else.


    Chris Mattews is the stupidist white person in the world!
    Someone should make it against the law to be this stupid.
    He acts like obummer is his husband and he will defend him no matter what.
    Someone please shut this dummy up!News flash mattews he doing a terrible
    job its not because hes black. GET OVER THE COLOR DEFENSE!!!!!
    HE CANT DO THIS JOB!!! If he was white everyone would be slamming him just the same including the lame stream media.Wheres the race issue when the lame stream media reported everything any White president did wrong,and they were to blame for everything. Like black people said Bush was a racist because he didnt care about the unemployment rate for blacks. But its doubled under obummer and they dont call him a racist. They say he is the best prezi ever.
    What a crock of crap.And by the way he is half white you know.
    So i say everyone has been racist when it comes to a white president and now we have a half black president who does nothing wrong and nothing is his responsibilty.This is wrong in so many ways very wrong!!!

    • Bob666

      “Chris Mattews is the stupidist white person in the world”
      Only if you are not white.

      • Jeff

        What about Doug Feith? Interesting the way IT calls Chris Matthews “the stupidest WHITE person in the world.” I think IT may be another Archie Bunker or maybe Archie Bunker was modeled after IT. Good initials for a sub-human racist!

  • marylou

    The RACE CARD has been cancelled…
    Mr Matthews obviously didn’t get the memo…it’s been proven that Conservatives are NOT racists…No one have ever been able to come up with any evidence ofracism.
    On the other hand…is there anyone more racist and who tosses out the race card when he is caught in another lie… than Obama???


    Does Obama Fulfill Islamic Prophecy of, “Sun Rising in the West?”

    Did you know that there is an Islamic prophecy that predicts that the ‘sun will rise in the West.’ Here is what it says in the Hadith…

    ” The day of the hour will not come until the sun rises from the West, if it rises and the people see it they will all believe…” [Abu Bukhari, Muslim]

    What I want you to note in this statement is “until the sun rises from the West.” Technically the sun can not rise in the West, because it rises in the East. As a result many Islamic scholars believe that an Islamic leader will rise from the West and bring many to their faith. In other words a Western Leader will pave the way for Islam to be received and accepted by many.

    Oddly, the very “symbol” of our President is a ‘sun rising in the West.’ Coincidence? I think not, if anything I believe Obama knew the prophecy and thus, made his ‘icon’ around it.

    When it’s coming from a liberal, is it still racist?
