Brit Hume: Holder's, Obama's Racial Appeals "Crybaby Stuff;" Both Men Have Benefited "Enormously" In Political Terms from Their Race

Last week, first Holder and then Obama addressed Al Sharpton's National Action Network, both making emotionally-charged claims of persecution to the largely-black audience.

Bret Hume thinks this is nonsense. So it seems to me as well.

To those two men, race has been both a shield and a sword that they have used effectively to defend themselves and attack others, Hume continued. It is depressing at this stage in our national life, after all weve been through on this issue and given the overwhelming consensus of civil rights, that this stuff is still going on.

On the same panel (I think) George Will calls the left's constant invocation of race to explain away criticism of them as a "kind of Tourette's syndrome."

He notes that Obama's foreign policy is in "shambles," and the economy is miserable -- does one need to venture far afield to come up with clever subconscious explanations for why Obama is unpopular?

No, of course not; the reasons for his unpopularity are glaringly obvious. Thus making it all the more necessary to claim that "racism" accounts for opposition against him.
