Rhetoric from Obama Campaign Hits New Low


July 2 turned out to be another big day for the Obama campaign – his surrogates demonstrating once again, the spirit of divisiveness that has been the hallmark of his presidency.

The first example came on the heels of the Supreme Court’s decision on the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act.  While the controversial government mandate survived the high court’s ruling, their ability to leverage Medicaid expansion by holding hostage other federal funds  to the states did not.  Accordingly, several states immediately telegraphed their intention not to expand Medicaid within their borders.  One of these states was Florida.  Florida Democratic Representative Debbie Wasserman-Shultz was quick to weigh in, giving her professional opinion of the decision by Governor Rick Scott. 

“I have to tell you,” said Wasserman Schults, “ I think he’s acting like a SPOILED BRAT.”[1]

Not to be outdone, Obama campaign surrogate Bill Burton constructed a strawman during a television interview, in which voters on the sidelines:

“…look at Mitt Romney and say, ‘Yeah, but is this CLOWN really going to beat President Obama?”[2]

All in all, another proud day for the Democrats – and they have so much reason to be proud.  Here are just a few other examples of their equally inspiring judgments on fellow Americans:

 “All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party.”[3] 

‘Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics,’ Ackerman wrote, ‘Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.’”[4]

“the ‘tea party’ can go straight to hell,”[5]

“Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens…Some of them in Congress right now with this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.”[6]

President Obama, an organizer and agitator by experience and training, continues to illustrate how his strong example has set the tone for both his administration and his campaign.
