Obama Claims Tea Party Has 'Subterranean Agenda'

Fasten your seat belts tea partiers, it's going to be a bumpy ride. With 2012 around the corner the race card is at the top of the deck. First, Eric Holder declares that the nightstick wielding Philadelphia New Black Panthers of 2008 were nothing compared to the racist poll watchers of the 1960's.  On the heels of Holder's remarks before a House subcommittee, we learn that President Obama believes the Tea Party harbors a "subterranean agenda."

Veteran White House correspondent Kenneth T. Walsh interviewed Obama for his newly released book Family of Freedom: Presidents and African-American in the White House. Seems the 10% unemployment rate, the dismal housing market, the rising debt and his apology tours have nothing to do with anti-Obama sentiment in the country. No, it's all about race:

Obama, in his most candid moments, acknowledged that race was still a problem. In May 2010, he told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent "Tea Party" movement that was then surging across the country.

A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to "take back" their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn't dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a "subterranean agenda" in the anti-Obama movement-a racially biased one-that was unfortunate. But he sadly conceded that there was little he could do about it.

In his own words from the famous race speech of 2008, the President has promoted a "politics that breeds division, and conflict and cynicism" and has used "race only as a spectacle."

Racist and "subterranean?" After three years of race-baiting, the present administration might find that the 2012 electorate, not just the Tea Party, is bored out of its mind with the faux race issue.

Time to fold 'em, Mr.President.
