Politics: Another ex-prez, Bill Clinton, tackles the Obama racism question

  • If you look at some of the signs, listen some of the rhetoric, there’s no question that’s true. But I believe if he were not an African-American, all the people who were against him on health care who would still be against him. Because they were against me too. He believes that.
  • Former President Bill Clinton • Discussing whether the tone of the health care debate was brought on by racism against Obama. Clinton’s answer is perhaps a bit better than Jimmy Carter’s. He attacks the racism on a general level, but isn’t fooled into thinking that’s the only reason why the Obama administration is getting attacked on health care. • source
