Jimmy Carter: “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man …”

Jimmy Carter weighs in.

As predicted, the idea here is to try use Mr. Obama’s race as a weapon to intimidate the opposition into silence.

Won’t work, Jimmy.

No one, repeat NO ONE is going to shut up because Jimmy Carter or anyone else says that opposing Mr. Obama is “racist”.

There is nothing special about Mr. Obama. He is just another politician. They are a dime a dozen.

Nor does anyone have to be polite about it. We saw the level of courtesy extended to Mr. Bush. That is the “new normal”, the Democrats and their allies chose those rules. Get used to it.

Mr. Obama is a president trying to aggressively expand the power of government and impose gigantic new and unnecessary burdens on the American people.

Thank God, lots of people are opposed to this and trying to stop him.

God willing they, we, will stop him.

If someone lies about you and calls you a racist for acting like a responsible citizen, for exercising free speech and peaceable assembly, to oppose Mr. Obama’s programs, that is an insult that should be responded to as an insult. Nothing more.

These people are pretty desperate if they are playing this card already.
