If it's subtle racist code to talk about Chicago or welfare, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick was far less subtle during his DNC remarks when he said that he refused to let Barack Obama "be bullied out of office."
So the mean white kids are picking on the poor, defenseless black kid at school?
(After all, if Patrick was watching MSNBC last week, he might have thought the Republicans only had mean white speakers at their convention...he might totally have missed the mean black and Hispanic and Indian kids.)
Meanwhile, this president is the biggest politicial bully on a major (American) stage whom I can recall, complete with talking about Republicans as enemies who should be punished. And when his union thug supporter, Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. introduced Obama by saying of Tea Party Members that Democrats and other union thugs should "take these son of a bitches out" (sic), Obama did not bat an eyelash in disagreement.
Bullied out of office? Give me a freakin' break.
