Things former vice presidents with a record of unconstitutional acts should not say with a straight face: “I think they’re playing the race card, in my view. Certainly we haven’t given up—nor should we give up—the right to criticize an administration and public officials. To say that we criticize, or that I criticize, Barack Obama or Eric Holder because of race, I just think it’s obviously not true."

Of course, no one has ever said that the criticism is simply a question of race, but it goes without saying that race has played a role in the automatic disrespect both President Obama and Attorney General Holder have received while in office. We aren't talking about simple disagreements here. We're talking about orchestrated efforts to disappear the eight year Obama presidency, from the Affordable Care Act all the way down to Pell grants.

Without irony, Darth "rectal feeding" Cheney also said, "I look at Barack Obama and I see the worst president in my lifetime, without question—and that’s saying something. I used to have significant criticism of Jimmy Carter, but compared to Barack Obama and the damage he is doing to the nation—it’s a tragedy, a real tragedy, and we are going to pay a hell of a price just trying to dig out from under his presidency,”

As ThinkProgress notes, this has been an ongoing theme from conservatives.

The conservative critique that the Obama administration is “playing the race card” is fairly common. After Obama gave a deeply personal speech about race after the death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin in Florida, conservatives were quick to say that Obama was the “first racist in chief” or that Obama was making the death of the unarmed teen “all about race.”

Of course, in his discussions about Ferguson he didn't mention anything about the gangster government extorting its own citizens to stay afloat, because then he would have to admit that it was all about race.

Why do they let this man crawl out from under his rock? Back, Darth! Get back under that rock!
