Time To Go It Alone

So there’s a growing recognition that what is fueling most of the anti-Obama movement these days is nothing more than old time racism. Ya’ think? That’s exactly what I pointed out a month ago. It’s nice to be in the company of President Jimmy Carter, along with others. This is an issue that needs to be brought to the forefront and hammered on until the majority of Americans understand exactly what the true nature of the opposition to Obama’s agenda really is. Certainly not all Republicans are racists, but there’s no doubt that all racists are Republicans. And the Republican Party is going to die a slow death unless they confront this element, and exorcise it completely from their ranks. There are certainly legitimate concerns about Obama’s economic and health care reform programs. But none of these legitimate issues are even being discussed because this racist element is dominating the discussion with their various birther/death camp/teabag/nazi/fill-in-the-blank crusades. As long as this element dominates the Republican party, there is no way that the Democrats can or should negotiate with them. They have to go it alone. And hopefully that’s what we will start seeing more and more of in the coming months.
