Birthers vs. "Racers"

This is from NewsBusters, Tony Katz, talk show radio host, appearing on MSNBC News Live with Contessa Brewer, whoever she is--do people really still watch MSNBC? Whatever. Anyway, I like Katz's point: media members and other people who blame all criticism of Barack Obama on the color of his skin are "Racers." Let's hope the term catches on.

Katz: But this whole idea of race, you know what, if there are birthers and they're all crazy and silly for actually wanting to see a birth certificate, well let's talk about the racers, the people who believe that everything is a conspiracy about race. It's Obama’s race that people want to see the birth certificate. It's Obama’s race that people don't like the out of control spending. It's not his race. It's that he's awful. The policies are terrible. ObamaCare is a lie and a failure. QE1 and QE2 didn't work. It's crazy.

For another article about the Left wanting to resurrect the "racism" theme, see Douglas Herz at American Thinker: "The Racism Racists." It seems the Left has chosen its 2012 presidential campaign theme: racism. But a legitimate question to ask is: who are the real racists?
