Yup….you guessed it, they are all racist:
That President Obama lost roughly 40 percent of the vote in Democratic primaries in Arkansas, Kentucky and West Virginia over the last two weeks has drawn massive national headlines.
Those headlines have drawn a collective eyeroll from Democrats — and many others who closely follow national politics — who ascribe the underperformance by the incumbent to a very simple thing: racism.
No, none of these Democrats are willing to put their name to that allegation — either generally or for this story. But, it is, without question the prevalent viewpoint they hold privately.
…Former Texas Rep. Charlie Stenholm, a longtime conservative Democrat, acknowledged that “race is definitely a factor for some Texans but not the majority,” adding: “The most significant factor is the perception/reality that the Obama administration has leaned toward the ultra-left viewpoint on almost all issues.”
Oh, so race is a factor for “some” but he has also leaned ultra-left. That couldn’t be the reason could it?
According to the WaPo, it’s not because these states are mostly conservative (including the Democrats in those states) and they don’t like ultra-left candidates. No, it’s just racism.
Tom Cole, a Republican House Member, dismissed the idea of race as a major factor in opposition to Obama out of hand.
“Obama fares poorly in states like Oklahoma, Kentucky and Arkansas because he has nothing in common with them. They are rural, he is urban. They are populist, he is elitist. And in case anyone hadn’t noticed, they are conservative while he is liberal. That isn’t just true of Republicans in these states. It is true of Democrats as well.”
Get outta here. We all know it’s because they are all a bunch of redneck racist hillbilly’s.
