WASHINGTON -- U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, on Wednesday blamed most of President Barack Obama's political problems on racism.
Clyburn, the assistant Democratic leader of the U.S. House and a close ally of the president, offered his views in response to a question about Obama's re-election prospects next year.
"I think they're improving every day," the South Carolina representative said. "I think the president has been a good president, a great commander-in-chief."
Clyburn, who met his wife at a 1960 court hearing after a night in jail for taking part in a civil rights protest in Orangeburg, then voluntarily brought up Obama's race as the first black president.
"You know, I'm 70 years old," he said. "And I can tell you -- people don't like to deal with it, but the fact of the matter is - the president's problems are in large measure because of the color of his skin."
Clyburn cited the hate mail, racist phone calls and offensive faxes he said he gets on a regular basis. Asked how that relates to Obama, Clyburn retorted: "We have the same skin color -- that's how it relates to him."
Clyburn described a recent racist image of Obama that received widespread news coverage.
"When he sees his face being put on a chimpanzee's body -- do you think he didn't see that?" Clyburn said. "And I suspect they send the same faxes to his office they send to mine."

Jimmy Carter said the same thing. Would any of us take issue with anything Jimmy said?????
Note how the article slips in that Clyburn met his wife because he had been arrested in a civil rights demonstration. They are slipping in there that Clyburn is a veteran civil rights activist, which is supposed to give his opinion great weight.
As if his being a good Democrat didn’t give it all the weight in the world. Same is true for Jimmy, as Jimmy is a good Democrat. (sarcasm)
Another racer heard from.
Do these race-baiters not know (or care) how silly they look accusing folks who find fault with Obama as being racist?
Actually, I agree with his headline...
everything 0bama has done has been de facto reparations,
“redistributing wealth” on a de facto, if unstated, racial basis.
So were in good company.
In a way, we are all black and we all think he sucks.
Other people are capable of rational thought.
Well, Bush was pictured as a chimp all the time...
“U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, on Wednesday blamed most of President Barack Obama’s political problems on racism. “
I agree. Obama and his wife and even Eric Holder are closet racists and that has become a big political problem for them.
Darn, I thought it “Completely vapid idiot” vs “Reasonably intelligent populace”
Those ‘rat mo-fo’s really need to learn a football truism:
You can go back to the well too many times.
Just because a play worked in the first quarter doesn’t mean it will work in the fourth.
The kind of plays Clyburn calls require leather helmets and cardboard shoulder pads-—that’s how funky they are.
We’re laughing at you, Jim. The “flying wedge” doesn’t work anymore.
And when Obama is not acting is a racist manner, he is going for cultural racism as he honors his muslim heritage....
1. Gave military and political aid to Islamist rebels in the Arab Spring.
2. Gave billions in oil resources to Al Qaeda in Libya.
3. Is giving billions in loans to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
4. Is trying to disarm Israel and turn that country over to the Palestinians.
As I tell ALL when asked about whether my dislike of Obama is based on race:
“I will tell you this, I DO NOT LIKE ‘white half’ either”!!
Definitely shuts people up. Give it a try, you will like the results.
That old race card is soooo Obama 2008...
Lets see..Vote 97 to 0 against O’Bama’s budget makes all of the Senate RACISTS!
They need to keep playing the race card until it finally goes away into the trash heap of history.
Listen to these astonishing racist remarks in Obama’s own voice from his own books!!
If a white candidate had similiar comments out in print about blacks, they would be CRUCIFIED!
IOW, suppose that all Obama's destructive behavior and crazy schemes are BECAUSE HE IS BLACK, and that he's trying to destroy America BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT BLACKS WANT.
What then? Where does that analysis take us?
A very wise man once said....
There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do do not want to lose their jobs.
