Clinton accuses Obama of playing the racist card

There’s been news circulating online about how Clinton referred to herself as Lyndon Johnson while Obama is Martin Luther King Jr. or how she diminish Dr. King’s role in favor of LBJ. Clinton disputed that claim. Here’s is what she actually said:

Dr. King’s dream began to be realized when President Lyndon Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, when he was able to get through Congress something that President Kennedy was hopeful to do, the president before had not even tried, but it took a president to get it done.

My first impression was she was simply saying that as a president, she would be able to make people’s dream (like Dr. King) a reality. Nowhere did she say Lyndon Johnson is better than Dr. King. The fact is if you have a bad president and one who does not listen to the people, then it will take a long time for dream such as those of Dr. King to be realize.

Scan Hopper’s blog at daily kos talked about Hillary’s reaction to this allegation. Scan also posted a talkingpointsmemo.com youtube video of Barak Obama campaign questioning Hillary’s emotion and how she did not cry when people were losing their home.

I guess both sides are getting muddy and might be taking their gloves off. Just when I was starting to warm up to Obama as being a nice decent guy, allegation that he might have perpetrated this distortion of Hillary’s word (if true) would reduce my respect for him. This means he is taking Hillary’s word out of context to trump up the racist card. I guess both of them are fighting for their political life and their true character is bound to appear. As they get desperate, they might reveal themselves as nothing more than just disgusting bad ole’ politicians like the others.
