The latest poll numbers must be worrying Barack Obama. With Clinton in freefall, Obama is now once again making race an issue of the presidential campaign. Odd, considering both candidates are white…
President Obama this weekend issued perhaps his most urgent appeal yet for Hillary Clinton, telling African-Americans that he would “consider it a personal insult” if they don’t turn out to vote for the Democratic nominee in November.
“I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election,” Obama said Saturday in his address to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation in Washington. “You want to give me a good sendoff? Go vote!”
If only Obama could win — or help someone win — an election without constantly calling his opponents “racist” and forcing the country's minorities to conform or be rejected. It seems silly now that many once considered this man the one who could finally mend race relations in America.
