So on the heels of Lewis’s comments this has to be the most ubsurd claim of racisim in this campaign yet… Obama’s advisors are claiming that McCain’s comparison of Obama’s tax plan to welfare carries a subliminal racial message.
This is really outrageous. Obama’s tax plan calls for “tax credits” in the form of checks from the government to people who don’t even pay federal taxes. The program that this is most similar to is welfare. Plain and simple. To say that there is anything racist about this comparison is so digusting that their camp loses what limited credibility they had left. The Obama camp really has no shame.
