Hiding Behind Racism

I just watched a network news report that made the astounding claim that any opposition to the agenda of President Obama is motivated by racism.

No less an authority than former President Carter confirmed the claim.

Nothing gets people on the defensive faster than the charge of racism. But the charge of racism doesn't stick this time around. People who oppose President Obama's agenda are not upset about his race. They are upset about his ideas.

Ideas deserve a full and serious debate. Bad ideas deserve the criticism heaped upon them. Really bad ideas try to hide behind something else.
