COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The only emergency room doctor in South Carolina's Legislature says frustration over Republicans' refusal to accept Medicaid expansion led to a flippant comment that was taken out of context.
Florence Republican Rep. Kris Crawford said Thursday he was telling a group of doctors the fight over Medicaid was a political one. He says his comment that, quote, "it is good politics to oppose the black guy in the White House" was not racial, and that he was wrapping up his explanation that the vote's not over health care policy.

“Good politics to oppose the black guy in the White House” comment not racial says Rep. Kris Crawford (SC Stste Legislator)
More reading indicates this Publican was pushing for an expansion of Medicaid in SC
So, is it “good politics to SUPPORT the black guy in the White House”?
Posted this last night, ashamed of being from ‘the south.’
........whatever the subject, wherever you are, whatever the venue...........
It is always and FOREVER ABOUT RACE, RACE, RACE, RACE, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS.
Did I mention it's about race? For them? Libs, too?
Better politics would have been remove the black guy from the White House!
It was a racist comment and UNLIKE democraps the Republicans denounce this stuff from our own instead of excusing it.
He should be taken to task for this
The mandate is, of course - ‘Make ANY and all opposition to Obama on any level ‘racist.’ Therefore, if you oppose Obamacare, you are racist. If you think he’s a schmuck, you are a racist.’
Imho, they are just projecting their own stupidity onto others. I’m not owning it, not one bit of it. I think Obama is a schmuck and a thug, he’s gone many bridges too far already and has more in his back pocket. I oppose EVERY SINGLE Marxist-Thug idea he proposes, and I believe he must be stopped every step of the way.
AND I am not a racist. MLK said all I ever needed to hear - “I look for a day when my little children can be judged by the quality of their character, not by the color of their skin.” I am judging Obama on the LACK of quality of his character, and I stand firm.
It’s “racial” regardless of what anyone does or says. Kiss his ass like so much of the GOP and it’s racial; ignore him and it’s racial.
Time to stop giving a $h!t what anyone else says and start saying and doing the right things.
They don’t like us, never will, and they are never really our friends so screw the bipartisan BS.
This is war, fight dirty and throw it back at the crap flinging hominid democrat party. Don’t worry when National Socialist Democrats like pelosi sends out her flying monkeys and grow some balls GOP.
FUBO, FAD & down with the democrat party
Why in the world would this guy be so stupid as to say something like this??
I only let purple guys steal MY money!
With blacks it’s about race,
but this has been hammered and indoctrinated into them by liberals,
who use race as a political tool to silence opposition to their Marxist policies.

He should be corrected; he’s not a “black guy”; he’s a “Mulatto”. (A term from the book “Tom Sawyer” is more accurate, but it’s not polically-correct. I got yelled at here last time I used it, on political-correctness grounds.
This article is right in that we don't want to give Liberals a convenience excuse to throw racism in our face, but they're going to do it irregardless of how far we bend over for them.
The idiot who said it was slamming the rest of the party. He was auditioning for John McQuig’s role as head maverick.
Om the other hand, "the black guy in the White House" plays racial politics to the hilt, and language needs to be developed to address this.
There is no question that "he" gets away with crap that a white person wouldn't because of the fear of being called "racist" for resisting his disastrous policies.
In other words, the left uses "race" as a slashing, stabbing weapon.
Why do you care what the racist nazis at AP think?
Back atcha: Why should I care to answer such a silly question?
Answer to that: I don’t
