Every word used to describe Obama is now RACIST.  Including "cool", "Christian" and

Angela Rye, Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus, argued that
President Obama has struggled during his first term due to racially-motivated
opposition from conservatives who dislike having a black president.

"This is probably the toughest presidential term in my lifetime," Rye said during
CSPAN's Q&A yesterday. "I think that a lot of what the president has experienced is
because he's black. You know, whether it's questioning his intellect or whether or
not he's Ivy League. It's always either he's not educated enough or he's too
educated; or he's too black or he's not black enough; he's too Christian or not
Christian enough. There are all these things where he has to walk this very fine
line to even be successful."

She said that "a lot" of conservative opposition is racially-charged, citing the use
of the word "cool" in an attack ad launched by Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS superPAC.

"There's an ad, talking about [how] the president is too cool, [asking] is he too
cool? And there's this music that reminds me of, you know, some of the
blaxploitation films from the 70s playing in the background, him with his
sunglasses," Rye said. "And to me it was just very racially-charged. They weren't
asking if Bush was too cool, but, yet, people say that that's the number one person
they'd love to have a beer with. So, if that's not cool I dont know what is.

She added that "even 'cool,' the term 'cool,' could in some ways be deemed racial
[in this instance]."
