Obama puts all his cards on the table amid multiple scandals
President Obama has been hammered for the past several weeks as no less than three major scandals continue to erupt in his administration. As the facts emerge and low-information voters have started to take notice, the liberal media has had no alternative than to put down the White House talking points and actually do a little reporting.
As more and more evidence is uncovered by congress, it doesn't look good for President Obama. But he does have a couple of cards left up his sleeve - the race card and the victim card. And on Sunday during his commencement speech at the graduation of predominantly black Morehouse College, President Obama decided to go all-in and play both cards at once.
Masked in his personal responsibility speech to the Morehouse College graduates, President Obama clearly identifies himself as being down with the struggle and no less a victim of racist America than any other black man. He told the crowd, "As Morehouse men, many of you know what it's like to be an outsider, to be marginalized, to feel the sting of discrimination. That's an experience that a lot of Americans share." Obama also spoke of his personal mistakes saying, "Sometimes I wrote off my own failings as just another example of the world trying to keep a black man down. I had a tendency to make excuses for me not doing the right thing." But it's important to understand that the underlying message President Obama is trying to convey to his supporters has nothing to do with responsibility, but everything to do with excuses. More specifically, that he is a victim of racism, and that attacks on his administration in any form are just another attempt to "keep a black man down."
It's obvious from Obama's move that there are more revelations to come from the scandals in the coming weeks and months. So Obama's playing both the race and victim card is clearly a desperate move on his part. That's because he knows he needs to win over the low-information voters and win back the liberal media as soon as possible so they can begin to do his bidding in the arena of public opinion. The talking point will be that America's first black president is under attack. And you can bet that their voices will be heard loud and clear as the liberal media will cover each and every one of their demonstrations, rallies and marches wall-to-wall in conjunction with any possible damaging revelations that come out the Obama administration.
Watch closely the next few weeks as the liberal media begins to latch on to Obama's victim and racist narrative as more and more damning facts emerge on Benghazi, the IRS and the Justice Department.
