These folks really need to better coordinate their talking points.
The latest campaign email to supporters of President Barack Obama’s reelection effort tries to capitalize on the president’s coolness. “From coaching basketball to knowing how many Jonas brothers there are, Barack is a pretty cool dad,” writes First Lady Michelle Obama in an email to supporters.
Funny, but just the other day some Black Congressional Caucus simpleton told us cool was a new racist codeword.
“There’s an ad, talking about [how] the president is too cool, [asking] is he too cool? And there’s this music that reminds me of, you know, some of the blaxploitation films from the 70s playing in the background, him with his sunglasses,” Rye said. “And to me it was just very racially-charged. They weren’t asking if Bush was too cool, but, yet, people say that that’s the number one person they’d love to have a beer with. So, if that’s not cool I dont know what is.
She added that “even ‘cool,’ the term ‘cool,’ could in some ways be deemed racial [in this instance].”
So I guess Michelle Obama is racist. Thanks for clearing that up.
