For Anyone Who Ever Thought This Election Wouldn't Be About Race

This election is all about race. The Republican Party have made it about nothing but race. They've honed their communication skills to the highest level of euphemistic grandeur when it comes to ways of making something contain a racial undertone.

Somewhere Lee Atwater is smiling.

With various state officials, North and South, referring to a repeat of the Civil War, should the President win a second term to the subtlest of subtleties in racial innuendo, the Republican party are seeking out those people who fear that because a black man has made it to the highest office in the land, it will open the door to others of his ilk and other minorities to do likewise.

It's naked, ugly fear, and you can see it in every white face who gazes beatifically at Mitt Romney and the Eddie Munster monster clone who is his running mate. It won't matter, should they win, that these people's lot in life will worsen. That will always be blamed on Obama, even though we're reminded now that we really shouldn't blame Bush for anything at all.

Always easier to blame the black man.

Some of us remember when Mitt Romney's father pointedly walked out of the 1964 Republican Convention when the GOP refused to endorse Civil Rights as part of its platform. Today, George Romney's son is a race-baiter.

The boy ain't his daddy ...

And Willard is still hanging around with rats.

These people should be ashamed, and they should be called out for what they are - low and common, lying racists.
