Race card

The first time I heard about Obama "playing the race card" as the Republicans are calling it, I defended him.

But this time, I'm feeling like it's overkill and unnecessary.

For some reason, Obama's remark that the Republicans will try to scare voters by saying that he "doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills" rubbed me the wrong way.

And then I think, it's quite the tightrope he has to walk . . .

It is a tight rope. He's expected to not address race, when that is a big reason why some won't vote for him. He's more up to handling this than say Jesse Jackson.
