Obama Camp Concedes "Dollar Bill" Remark Was About His Race… Duh!

Either the Obama camp or the media thinks we’re all morons, or both.

The Obama Camp today conceded that his “dollar bill” remarks were indeed about race.
ABC News reported:

Sen. Barack Obama’s chief strategist conceded that the Democratic presidential candidate was referring to his race when he said Republicans were trying to scare voters by suggesting Obama “doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

The comment had triggered a charge Thursday from Sen. John McCain’s campaign manager that Obama had “played the race card… from the bottom of the deck.”

Obama’s camp initially denied the remark was a reference to Obama’s race.

Obama is poised to become the first black man to be the presidential nominee of a major political party when he claims the Democratic nomination on Aug. 28 — the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Figures.
