Geraldine Ferraro stirred controversy with her recent remarks that Obama’s campaign was successful because he was black.
“It wasn’t a racist comment, it was a statement of fact,” she said on CBS’ Early Show, adding that she would leave Hillary Clinton’s national finance committee if she were asked, but would not stop raising money for the New York senator’s presidential bid. She also blamed Obama’s chief strategist, David Axelrod, for misinterpreting her remarks.
Notice Gerrie goes on to say this:
Ferraro also told ABC’s Good Morning America that “every time” someone makes a negative comment about Obama, they are accused of racism.
Late Tuesday, she told interviewer that she felt she was being attacked because she was white.
Ok, that’s bullshit. You can’t have it both ways, sister. You can’t say that B.O. is winning because he is black, and then defend yourself by saying that your critics are attacking you because you’re white.
“Allow me to retort.” Your attempt to play the inverted race card will come back to bite you in the ass. Here’s how. I could say that you’re saying all this shit because you’re white. How about that? That’s consistent with your strategy.
Look, drop all this nonsense, Gerrie. The guy has a message, and maybe you’re just jealous that he’s winning. Notice that I just committed an ad hominem, but you’ve already given me license to do that–because that is your game.
