In Response to Re: Palin Film Premiers To Empty Theater In Orange County : Thanks...here is another one. May 2011: House Assistant Democratic Leader Jim Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, blamed most of President Barack Obama’s political problems on racism… “You know, I’m 70 years old,” he said. “And I can tell you; people don’t like to deal with it, but the fact of the matter is, the president’s problems are in large measure because of the color of his skin .”… The claims of racism in opposing Obama's policies has perhaps quieted down a bit, because it is so absurd...but when the 2012 election draws near, it will be hyped again, to stir up racial division and win votes..that is the Democrat's M.O.

Two quotes is "the Democrat's M.O."?
Two quotes = conservatives being called racists constantly for four years for disagreeing with policy?
Still, Mr. Clyburn's questionable words should be read in full:
Clyburn, who met his wife at a 1960 court hearing after spending a night in jail for having engaged in a civil rights protest in Orangeburg, S.C., then brought up Obama's race as the first black president.
"You know, I'm 70 years old," he said. "And I can tell you; people don't like to deal with it, but the fact of the matter is, the president's problems are in large measure because of his skin color."
Clyburn noted that he himself got hate mail, racist phone calls and offensive faxes on a regular basis. Asked how that relates to the president, Clyburn retorted: "We have the same skin color; that's how it relates to him."
Clyburn described a recent racist image of Obama that received widespread news coverage.
"When he sees his face being put on a chimpanzee's body; do you think he didn't see that?" Clyburn said. "And I suspect they send the same faxes to his office they send to mine."
Marilyn Davenport, a member of the Orange County Republican Central Committee in California, forwarded an email to friends last month that displayed a photograph of a chimpanzee with Obama's face superimposed on its head.
In response to the immediate uproar, Davenport apologized but rebuffed demands from the California NAACP that she resign her GOP post.
Clyburn suggested that the "birther" movement of Americans who say Obama wasn't born in the United States is fueled by racism.
"I don't know why anybody didn't ask for John McCain's" birth certificate, Clyburn said. "He wasn't even born in this country."
The Republican senator from Arizona, whom Obama defeated in the 2008 presidential election, was born at the Coco Solo Naval Air Station in the Panama Canal Zone, where his father served as an officer who'd later become an admiral and commander of the U.S. Pacific Command.
Heyyy...wait a minute. Perhaps I can find another way to convince brat and bobin that reliance on one or two examples is no good...
1. Davenport sent a racist picture about Obama. Davenport is Republican. Therefore, all Republicans are racists.
2. Sarah Palin spends her time spouting nonsense vomit for purposes of attention and money. Sarah Palin is a TP-republican. Therefore, all TPers and Republicans are greedy attention-starved buffoons.
See where I'm going with this?
Enough with using false victimhood as a shield from criticism.
Nothing could be farther from the troof than claiming that Republicans/Conservatives have constantly been called racists for the last four years because they disagree with Obama.
