Obama says Republicans will use race to stoke fearVia Baldilocks.
"We know what kind of campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid.
"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"
Uh huh. Alright Mr. Post Racial Hope and Change. It was only a matter of time before we started the getting vote for me or you're a racist type of messages from Obama.

How exactly is it transcending race to claim that your political opponent is going to use your race against you (the way Mr Obama is trying to use the race of potential voters and Mr McCain against them) in an election? This is just the same old baseless race baiting nonsense that has had this American rolling her eyes for years.

As to Mr. Obama's wife,
He said he was also set for Republicans to say "he's got a feisty wife," in trying to attack his wife Michelle.
There is a great American tradition of holding people accountable for the things they say. The American people will challenge Mrs. Obama, the same way they challenge Mr. Obama, when she inserts herself into the political arena. If you don't like it perhaps you should find something else to do.
