We are constantly told that we portray Barack Obama as The Other because of his race.
We don’t portray Obama as The Other. We portray him as what he is not what he pretends to be, and none of what he is or pretends to be has anything to do with his race.
The hysterical reaction to Mitt Romney joking about Romney’s own birth certificate was very telling. And predictable (via Right Scoop):
I can’t help but feel that these are the race card death throes of people who know they have lost The Other war.
Obama’s supporters made Obama The Other by falsely accusing critics of Obama of racism and Other-ism.
Remember voters, do not think of The Other in the room. Even though Obama’s supporters have been talking about The Other incessantly for four years.
