The Boston Globe reports that on NPR today the national chairman of the Democrats’ called the Republican Party the “white” party:
“If you look at folks of color, even women, they’re more successful in the Democratic Party than they are in the white, uh, excuse me, in the Republican Party,” Dean said at one point.
You can listen the Democrats’ chairman continue to play Obama’s race card below:
If you want more context, you can listen to the entire NPR broadcast here.
Obama can’t get away with playing the race card anymore. No, not now that the McCain Campaign called Democrats’ presumptuous nominee on playing the race card. No, not now that the Obama’s chief strategist admitted that the Obama’s comments referred to Obama’s race. No, not now that a majority see Obama’s dollar bills comments as racist.
According to the Globe, McCain campaign co-chairwoman Carly Fiorina, called Dean on continuing to play the Obama’s race card:
“It is disappointing to see Howard Dean trying to use gender and race to divide voters. His comments are insulting, inappropriate and have no place in this election.”
DNC spokeswoman Stacie Paxton claims Dean misspoke,
“He misspoke and corrected himself immediately.”
I’ve listened to Dean’s comments several times. You are never going to convince me Dean’s comments were not intentional. If you believe Dean’s comments were unintentional, well, I have ocean front property to sell you in Kansas.
