Comments on: The First Draft: Bill Clinton on race and the healthcare debate http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/09/22/the-first-draft-bill-clinton-on-race-the-healthcare-debate/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Adam H. http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/09/22/the-first-draft-bill-clinton-on-race-the-healthcare-debate/comment-page-1/#comment-399369 Wed, 23 Sep 2009 06:04:21 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=20439#comment-399369 This is absolutly disgusting. I can’t believe that two former American Presidents have drug themselves so low as to call any opposition to President Obama as a racist. No it is the silent majority being reawakened. A silent majority that threw Carter out of the White house. The same mojority that elected President Clinton, President Reagan, and Resident Bush. No the democrats don’t like it when the silent majority isn’t so silent anymore. These political figures believe that they are untouchable and they always forget that we can choose not to elect them as easily as we chose to elect them. End the dems in twenty-ten.

Whenever I speak with those opposed to healthcare reform and ANY other agenda the White House is working on (and it is never just one issue being opposed) – always – ALWAYS – the President’s color come in to play. Oh no, these people are not racists – they just oppose policy.

What’s needed now is for American blacks still predisposed to view ‘whitey’ as suspect to develop a more mature attitude also. A good first step would be to repudiate race-baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and… to acknowledge that Bill Cosby (and Booker T. Washington) were right.
