AP: 'Obama's Presidency Has Been Marred By Racist Backlash'

Is there no limit to the liberal media's race-baiting?

Consider a Wednesday report by the Associated Press that claimed, "When he became president, Obama blasted through a heavy barrier that many before him had only pushed against. But his presidency has been marred by racist backlash and his administration has found itself refighting battles already thought won, such as ensuring equal access to the polls."

As our friend Jammie Wearing Fool observed in his dissection of this drivel, nowhere in this piece did author Suzanne Gamboa explain what the racist backlash was.

Maybe she thinks it was racist that Obama got reelected.

Of course, her point about "ensuring equal access to the polls" suggests that like so many of the dishonest media, she believes requiring voter IDs is racist.

Maybe she should talk to former President Jimmy Carter who recommended such IDs while co-chairing a committee on election reform in 2005.

And then she should consult the Atlanta Journal-Constitution which reported in 2012 that minority turnout actually increased after Georgia implemented a voter ID law in 2007.

No, that would probably be too much like journalism for this race-baiting shill.

That said, she's quite right about racism being alive and well in America - and liberal media members such as her are to blame.
