Melissa Harris Perry, You are actually one of the most delusional people on television…in my humble opinion.
Case in point, for some reason you seem to think that the term “Obamacare” was just a racist code word to replace other more…unsavory…references to black people.
What does the term “Hillarycare” serve as a stand in for then?
There is a reason we described the Affordable Care Act as “Obamacare” MHP and it wasn’t to be “derogatory” as you suppose it was. It was to make sure that Obama was forever remembered as the actual architect and the person who pushed this law. We do, indeed, want Obama’s legacy to be remembered through this one phrase and one signature accomplishment.
Because we knew it was going to be a cluster*beep* from the start.
Obama decided to “own” that term, because he “[does] care”. About what does he care? I’m not sure, but I think it might be his own ego, because it sure isn’t his citizens or the economy.
How is it possible that after the complete proof that this plan is a failure (zero interest from young people, proven lies from the President about the plan, skyrocketing premiums and deductibles) that you can still believe that ‘Republicans just don’t like it because Obama is black’?
Were you dropped on your head as a child or were you just born this stupid?
But you know what, I’m done playing your game.
If you want to believe I’m racist, then please do. I can’t convince you otherwise, despite having dated people of several races other than my own and having friends in who cover the entire spectrum of the races who I love and respect, because you have set it up so that no matter what I do you are going to find some bull*bleep* reason to explain to yourself how I really am racist and I’m just hiding it cleverly by befriending and respecting people of other races.
You can believe whatever you want, it’s not like I respect your opinion of me anyway.
That isn’t going to change the Obamacare will continue to suck and Obama will be remembered by a plan that he pushed, he lied about, and he is responsible for.
And you know what?
I’m glad he will be.
It’s his signature accomplishment, he should be remembered for it.
Just like Lyndon Johnson is remembered for his Great Society. Which, coincidentally, was just as bad for the country as Obamacare is, especially for minorites.
Please, promise me that Obama’s name will be synonymous with Obamacare for the rest of time.
Because that completely failure is the main entry that I want my children to read when they discuss the 44th President of the United States in their American history class.
That isn’t racism, it’s just holding Obama accountable for his actions.
Here’s a question for you to ponder MHP.
If Obamacare is such an amazing idea, then how could it possibly be derogatory to attach Obama’s name to it?
