No politician in American history has gotten more mileage out of racial demagoguery than our "post-racial" president, Barack Obama. But it has cost him. White Americans are sick and tired of being tagged as racist for merely disagreeing with his progressive agenda.
Obama has an uncanny ability to use the racial sensitivities of white people to his advantage. He got himself elected president by preying on white guilt and voicing an endless, mesmerizing stream of feel-good hope and change rhetoric that promised a post-racial America under his stewardship. Instead, he has done more damage to race relations since George Wallace and Bull Connor, both segregationist Democrats.
