Your reference to the "race video" being bizarre and BS is because you only address what you assume to be the complaint from the "ostensibly" the racist right wing. The left's response to the tape was that conservatives must think he showed some unacceptable level of blackness. That was not the issue, nor did anyone say it was (yes, yes, I know it was the subliminal message) although it was evidence of him being a kind of phony. The outrageousness of the tape was how divisive he was being, pitting people against each other - which he has made into an art these last four years - and not only that, but lying blatantly in order to accomplish this. Obama said the Stafford Act was waived in New York and Florida because the people there were considered to be "part of the American family." But the people in New Orleans, "they don't care about as much." Less than two weeks before that speech, the Senate had voted to waive the Stafford Act for New Orleans. More federal money was spent rebuilding New Orleans than was spent in New York after 9/11 and in Florida after hurricane Andrew, combined. Barack Obama voted against waiving the Stafford Act for New Orleans. It's about lying and dividing, not race. Keep beating up those straw men though!
