Never mind that he uses the term, that Michelle uses the term, that pretty much all Americans, left, right, and center use the term.
Now that the whole steaming pile of donkey [bleep] has turned out to be a… whole steaming pile of donkey [bleep], applying his name to the whole steaming… you know… is, like, racist:
I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man. To render him inferior and unequal and to diminish his accomplishments.
President Obama has been labelled with this word by his opponents. And at first he rose above it, hoping that if he could just make a cause for what he achieved, his opponents would fail in making their label stick. But no matter how many successes that he had as president, he realized there were still many people for whom he’d never be anything more than that one disparaging word. A belief he knew was held not just by his political opponents, but also by a significant portion of the American electorate.
And so he decided, if you can’t beat them, you’ve got to join them. And he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren’t expecting — ‘if that’s what you want me to be, I’ll be that.’ Y’all know the word that I’m talking about. Obamacare. That’s right! I said it and I’m not ashamed and neither is President Obama. Because he knows that of all his victories over two terms in office his legacy is ultimately going to be remembered for this one single word.
And I thought the word was doofus. That’s the word Aggie used that got our one liberal commenter, Richard, Robert, whatever, to quit in a huff. I still think doofus is a better word to describe his “legacy”.
But didn’t we also call Romneycare Romneycare? And Hillarycare Hillarycare? And weren’t the Bush tax cuts the Bush tax cuts? Let me apologize to all black people offended by my past use of Romneycare. I didn’t mean to render you inferior and unequal and to diminish your accomplishments. I don’t recall using Hillarycare, but if I did, I’m really sorry if I put myself above and apart from you.
Such nonsense could only come from the ridiculous and self-humiliating (and kinda hot) Melissa Harris Perry of something called MSNBC.
But then, I’m always a sucker for a woman with fashion sense:
This was the same woman who said kids belong to the state, not their parents, and the state has an overriding interest and say in how they’re raised. Maybe she can start with Sasha and Malia. Those poor sweet girls don’t deserve the family they’ve been born into.
