my perspicacious partisanship, on the other hand, has lead me to say things far worse about every republican president we've had, and I'd hate to think that i couldn't be just as vehement in my antipathy towards a black republican president without some jackass calling me a racist.
its every american's right to call the president a worthless, lazy, lying sack of crap. When we do the obvious reason is partisanship - not racism or traitorous anti-american biases. well, partisanship and the fact that they have pretty much all fit that description for the last 30 years.
And yet when you accuse a black man of being "lazy," especially when any reasonable reading of the evidence directly refutes the claim - you're wide open for accusations that that you're hitching a ride on a venerable racist meme. And you should expect to be called on it.
