The Obama post-racial presidency is officially dead. This week, the president and Joe Biden killed it. On Monday, the Obama-Holder Justice Department filed a friends-of-court brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of race and ethnicity based admissions preferences at the University of Texas. Tuesday, the vice president broke into a southern drawl in front of a predominately African-American audience and announced that a Romney administration would again put African-Americans in chains.
Team Obama has transformed the 2012 election into a Chicago knife fight. The politics of hope and change have degenerated into desperation.
Back in 2008, the Obama election strategy was to ride a coalition of minorities and wealthy whites into the White House. Although the campaign prevailed, the Obama was not keen on drawing attention to this election tactic. This time out, David Axelrod & Co. has no such compunction. The Obama pincer movement on tax-paying, law-abiding middle and working class Americans is out there for all to see.
