Constantly referring to Obama as black was a clear attempt by the Dems to show what a historic event it would be to elect him. They played off of the emotions of the election and did what they needed to do to win.
IDK if that's what that guy was referring to but it's something the GOP should have addressed regardless.
I agree. The repubs didn't talk about Obama's race enough in the last election. I hope they decide to debate the merits of Obama's "blackness" as a campaign issue in 2012. I'm sure that'll be a winner
