Representative James Clyburn: Obama is only criticized because of racism

It seems that the desperation strategy for the Democrats/Kleptocrats/Statists going into the 2012 election cycle is to paint all critics and criticism of President Obama as being racist.

This is no better clearly illustrated than by the verbal vomit uttered by Democrat Congressional Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina. In an interview with McClatchy News Service, Clyburn had this to say:
"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."
OK, I'll bite. Tell me Rep. Clyburn, how it is that Obama's approval rating could have gone from around 65-70% at the beginning of his presidency down to 45-50% now, without some of that disapproval coming from many of the people who voted for him? Are those people racist now, but were not racist in November, 2008? The same people who don't like Obama's politics (including me), don't like the politics of Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter very much either (including me). I am white; am I a racist for not liking Clinton or Carter either? The whole premise of blaming criticism of Obama on racism is absolutely absurd, but you know how this story goes. If the charges are not answered, no matter how stupid the charges are, then the meme is cemented in people's minds. You cannot let these slimy lowlifes like Jim Clyburn control the narrative. Remember the concept of "The Big Lie"? The bigger it is, the more likely people are willing to believe it. Calling me, and others like me, a racist because I disagree with Obama is a pretty big lie, wouldn't you say? All the more reason to call people out when they accuse you of it.

Clyburn then delved into the birth certificate controversy in an attempt to prove that the people who insisted that Obama release his birth certificate were/are motivated by racism:
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."
Is Clyburn trying to purposefully deceive the unknowing out there, or is he really that stupid that he doesn't know that McCain's birth status was investigated by the New York Times and a Senate hearing was ultimately held on the subject? In fact, a member of the Senate committee that found that John McCain was indeed a natural-born citizen was none other than Barack Obama; the same Barack Obama who took three years to finally release a PDF file of his long-form birth certificate only after countless pundits, lawsuits, authors, and millions of Americans urged him to do so.

Fight the "Big Lie" folks. Unfortunately, there are way too many people out there who are ready and willing to believe it. The least you can do is stand up for yourself.
