I knew it was only a matter of time before Obama pulled out the race card. In a recent speech he gave in Philadelphia regarding the upcoming elections, the president said, "They're counting on young people staying home and union members staying home and black folks staying home." Why does he have to bring race into it? What does being black have to do with the Republican vote? I guess he doesn't know that not all African-Americans are liberal. What a racist.
The only group Republicans wish would stay home is the dumb group. I don't care what color you are or what your age is, or if you're a union worker. If you're dumb … just stay home. Let me define "dumb." If you go into that voting booth completely unaware of what you're voting for, that's dumb. If you pick something because it's "popular" or just a random pick, that's dumb too. Stay home. Just because you have the right to vote doesn't mean you should. You shouldn't be voting unless you actually care enough to do the research.
It's obvious by Obama's words that he thinks all "black folks" agree with his message. That is a terribly racist assumption to make, and he should be called out for that.

If a white president said, "They're counting on white folks to stay home" people would have flipped, especially Obama's cronies. Everyone would have made a federal case about it. Why is it OK for Obama to speak like this, but not anyone else? No one should count on an entire race for voting security. We are individuals bonded by common traits. We are all capable of being in whatever party we decide is best regardless of our skin color. Did I vote for Mitt Romney because he is white? Absolutely not. I voted for him because I agreed with a majority of his policies and I truly felt like he was the best candidate.
I don't have to use my race – or gender, for that matter – as a crutch through life like most liberals do. I have a mind of my own, and I understand it is wrong to vote for someone based on his or her gender and race. I would never count on "black folks" to stay home on voting day, because I understand each person has an opinion regardless of race. I don't think Obama understands that.
It doesn't take a genius to see what's really going on. Obama thinks that because he is half African-American, that means all African-Americans should vote for his friends. How is that not racist? He knows that he can get away with racist remarks because he has the menacing Rev. Sharpton and a slew of other flower-power misfits to back him up. As long as the racist remarks didn't come from a white person, don't worry about it.

The more important thing to note is this: Democrats need to count on Republicans staying home. Not "white people" and "black folks." We have watched this country disintegrate before our very eyes, not because we have a half-black, half-white president, but because we have a half-wit president running the country. His hair may have turned ten shades of gray over the past two years, but that doesn't mean he's any more the wiser since he began this journey. We need representatives who have a moral code and who will stick up for us, not apologize for us.
I cannot stress how important these upcoming elections are. If we are ever going to redeem ourselves, now is the time. Obama will be helpless without his Power Rangers in Congress. My dose of honesty: We have to let our representatives know that the time for threats is over. They have failed us, and it is time to move on. Thank you for playing, but you're out with yesterday's garbage. It's time for us to take back this country. We don't need universal health care; we don't need spineless leaders; and we don't need a president who thinks all "black folks" vote the same way. As for Obama, just keep telling yourself, "It's only two years away. It's only two years away." It'll be here before you know it.
