Top Democrat Tells German Newspaper: Americans Don't Like Obama Because They're Racists
Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression. The Obama-Pelosi economic plan resulted in a cumulative 7.5 million jobs deficit. By every objective measure the democrat’s Trillion dollar stimulus bomb was a complete disaster.
Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi tripled the national deficit last year by nearly a trillion dollars – something unheard of in our nation’s history.
After an unheard of record deficit last year of $1.4 Trillion the economy is on track to experience a $1.3 Trillion deficit this year.
Instead of focusing on the economy the past two years the radicals in Washington beat up on business and rammed through an unpopular nationalized health care entitlement program.
Despite these facts, democrats continue to believe Americans don’t like Obama because they are racists. Rep. John Lewis told a German newspaper that Americans don’t like Obma’s radical agenda because – “People cannot get used to the idea that a person of color is president of the United States.”
This is getting old.
Doug Ross uncovered this outrageous interview at Der Spiegel:
SPIEGEL: Were you not surprised how quickly the political mood changed in the US?
Lewis: No. It’s the first time in the history of the country that we have a black president. You have to understand that there are some people in our society that say he is not one of us. He may be down in the polls right now, but he will come back. Just like Bill Clinton came back. He’s going to campaign his heart out…
SPIEGEL: But the question is whether Washington would function better if the Republicans had a majority in either the Senate or the House. Would that not make them less inclined to be obstructionist?
Lewis: No. I think the Republican Party is going to the extreme. If it continues on the path it’s on, it will continue to be a minority party for many years to come…
SPIEGEL: Is there any difference between the backlash against President Bill Clinton in the 1994 midterm elections and the backlash against Obama we are seeing now?
Lewis: I don’t see a vast difference. A lot of people on the other side didn’t like Bill Clinton for different reasons, and they tried to destroy him. But he hung in.
SPIEGEL: The radicalization of the right, in other words, isn’t necessarily due to the US having a black president for the first time ever?
Lewis: In some quarters, it’s true, people cannot get used to the idea that a person of color is president of the United States.
