So “The Donald” managed with just a few weeks of mild effort to do what the American people couldn’t do in three years of protests and litigation; he goaded Obama into providing more evidence of his American birthplace and, hence eligibility to hold the office of POTUS. At least that’s how Donald Trump is playing this up.
Somewhat unfortunately for him and very unfortunately for we, the People of America, I believe that Trump was playing the wrong suit in this hand. He forgot that under the rules of the game under regime of the First Black President and his Liberals spades are trump. 😉
You’re White; You’re Racist – Unless You Give Me Money & Votes!
Obama is back in full campaign mode, not that he has ever particularly left that “comfort zone,” and everything is to be described as being about race, especially anything involves criticism of Obama or his agenda. This will just get worse whenever Obama or his cultists feel threatened.
Trump forgot that Obama only had two major themes to his 2008 presidential campaign, “Blame Bush” and the race card. With President Bush long out of the picture all Obama has left is race-baiting.
By forgetting this Trump gave Obama and his cabal the perfect opportunity to revitalize the controversy over his titular status as a natural born American citizen and eligibility to be POTUS to their benefit.
No crisis, especially manufactured ones, should ever be wasted…
Obama has lost the support of a lot of his far Left base and there’s almost always the concern that the Blacks, while fully in support of Obama not being perceived as a failure, won’t be motivated enough to go to the polls. Trumping this political hand by playing the race card is an almost sure fired remedy for these problems.
His campaign staff may not be able to drum up enough support in the form of campaign donation and vote for Obama but making the 2012 campaign about race may give them the ability to fire up the Liberals and Blacks to spend and vote against whoever runs against him.
