Speaking of "Racism"

Two paragons of leftist statism comment on the first black president in our history (before he was elected, of course) :

"A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee." - Bill Clinton (as recounted by Ted Kennedy)
Here's one from the man who just days ago characterized opposition to socialized health care as akin to support for slavery. Speaking of our (now) President, he assessed Obama's positives as a candidate by saying Obama is :

"[L]ight-skinned'...with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." - Harry Reid - Democrat Leader of the U.S. Senate

And, of course for good measure, let's not forget the Human Gaffe Machine cum VPOTUS, speaking of candidate Obama during the campaign:

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." - Joe Biden

Do I think any of these elitist power-lusting buffoons is racist? No, I don't.

Incredibly smug paternalistic hypocrites witlessly revealing who they really are as they look down their noses to make such unfortunate comments? Absolutely.

But more so, who am I (or anyone else) to sit in judgment of those with such deeply-contemptuous self-superiority towards a black politician.

Best to leave such incendiary accusations and hysterical rhetoric to all their faithful supporters, the experts in such tactics.
