I predicted that when Obama’s negatives began to exceed his positives in opinion polls — which they do now, by about 10% — he would play the race card as soon as the opportunity arose. With the economy in ruins and his foreign policy a joke, the Messiah’s only hope for getting his numbers back up would be to leverage that good ol’ white guilt that got him elected in the first place.
But it’s not working. And it’s not just those nasty white WAYCISTS who are turning on him: there are now black Americans who are willing to tell the TV cameras that they no longer support him.
An intelligent well-spoken black policewoman says that she voted for Obama last year, but she won’t vote for him again.
Now that’s change we can believe in.
