Dislike For President Obama Is “Almost Irrational”

December 11, 2015

Sen. Lindsey Graham spoke with clarity about the root cause of so much dysfunction within the Republican Party.  Over the past seven years we have all witnessed how that dysfunction has crated a government that can hardy walk and chew gun at the same time.

Graham told the Boston Herald that Donald Trump is leading in the polls because nearly half of Republican primary voters hate Obama and think he is a Kenyan-born Muslim.

Said Graham: “Well there’s about 40% of the Republican primary voter who believes that Obama was born in Kenya and is a Muslim. There’s just a dislike for President Obama that is visceral. It’s almost irrational.”

This racist hatred against President Obama  has long been something I have posted about on my blog.  But now it is being confirmed by an establishment Republican.

    Its hard to imagine the term “racist” really has any meaning left anymore. Most people, I imagine, simple can’t hear it because it has been so overused. This is especially true in forums where the term has been tossed about so causally and so constantly in an effort distract attention from valid criticisms.

    Republicans and conservatives knew from the day of Obama’s election that the term would be used to deaden any criticism of the president. This has proven to be correct and is certainly one of the reasons the left has created one of the most racially polarized periods in American history.

    This has consequences, too. “The boy who cried wolf” comes to mind. I think of this often in the context of the Syrian refugees. But in the end, who cares what Lindsey Graham says, he doesn’t speak for anyone but his own bitter self.
