MSNBC: Obama graded harder because he’s black (Dog-Whistle Racism From MSNBC?)

MSNBC hosts agreed this weekend that white voters hold President Obama to a higher standard than his white predecessors because he is black.

“[Obama] now has a specific record of governing,” MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry said today on her show. “A record that, I contend, because of his race will be held to a much higher standard than it would have been for a white incumbent. Those white voters who found what they were looking for in 2008 will not necessarily be so enthusiastic in 2012.”

    Amazing how they just will not give up that “because Obama is black thing.” As for race playing a major role in anything these days, it is because the Obama administration and their media puppets are shoving it down the throats of the populace.

    As my mother used to say, “and this too shall fail.”
