Clearly, the national Democratic Party is in the grips of a racist fever.
More and more Democrats are publicly challenging Obama on a range of issues.
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) ripped the administration on Tuesday for considering keeping U.S. troops in Iraq beyond this year. In a floor speech on Tuesday, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) questioned Obama’s strategy in Afghanistan.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), meanwhile, are at odds with Obama on the trade deals he just sent to Congress. Reid has committed to moving them, though he has made clear he is not a fan. Pelosi has put the White House on notice she will not be twisting arms to pass the agreements.
Congressional Democrats are not exactly embracing Obama’s jobs plan. Pelosi has called for an up-or-down vote on it in the House, but Reid is in no rush to schedule a vote. Reid, who is worried about keeping his majority, is well-aware that voting on Obama’s proposal puts some of his politically vulnerable members in a tough spot.
When will Janeane Garofalo, Morgan Freeman and Samuel L. Jackson step up and condemn this obviously racist opposition to the president?
