Race-baiting hypocrite: Blocking Burris would put Reid in same position as George Wallace

posted at 1:00 pm on December 31, 2008 by Allahpundit

It’s Bobby Rush, back for a bottom-feeding encore after yesterday’s bravura performance at the presser. Only a neo-segregationist would oppose the Senate’s only black member, says a guy who himself endorsed a white Democrat in the Senate primary four years ago over his old nemesis, Barack Obama. He called Blago’s actions “heinous” earlier this month, too, and agreed with Democratic consensus that he shouldn’t make the appointment before instantly reversing himself yesterday in the interests of racial solidarity. Obama has political capital to spare and multiple reasons here to spend it — tactically, to give Senate Democrats cover and burnish his credentials as the post-racial president, and personally, given his long rivalry with Rush. He should step up and lay this turd out. He’d have plenty of support based on early indications.

Lest you think Burris is a helpless bystander in all this, do note that he’s now merrily playing the race card, too. And not for the first time in his political career.

What kind of a person would even want the appointment under these circumstances?

If Blago had tried to appoint me, even if I felt supremely qualified and felt I could do a great job there, I’d have turned him down.

The fact that this guy not only accepted the appointment but is known to have stepped up his lobbying for the appointment AFTER the Buy-A-Senate-Seat scandal broke blows my mind.

George Wallace is getting a bad rap. He wasn’t a racist, he was an opportunistic politician. He lost a campaign because he wasn’t segregationist enough. So he changed his strategy.

Rush is an honest-to-God racist.

Best thing to happen to IL politics in a loooong time.

Completely exposing the crooks and hypocrites for who they are.

Burris will get the seat, b/c there’s no constitutional way to stop it. The big talk on the local radio here (crook county) is “how expensive a special election will be”.

Now, if only the Reweaklicans can field a viable candidate in 2010.

Is it me or does Bobby Rush sound like he is perpetually drunk? Or maybe he speaks with a mouthful of marbles?

The best way to avoid a Supreme Court showdown is to seat Burris and then unanimously vote to kick him out. That should not be a big deal and will make things a lot less messy (and expensive).

Flash back to October and a certain GA representative, no not Cynthia, but John Lewis, and what he had to say to Sen McCain.

“As public figures with the power to influence and persuade, Sen. McCain Reid and Governor Palin Blagojevich are playing with fire, and if they are not careful, that fire will consume us all. They are playing a very dangerous game that disregards the value of the political process and cheapens our entire democracy. We can do better. The American people deserve better.”

Still hoping and dreaming that the O is for real, Allah?

Good luck with that; he had his chance to urge for a special election to avoid this. He didn’t. Keeping the seat’s more important than a show of integrity or chutzpah. Consider it kept. Reid will cave.

Nichevo on December 31, 2008 at 1:53 PM

You could not be more wrong in suggesting that Obama waste political capital on this matter and have no idea how the black community will respond negatively to Obama if Obama turns this into a street fight. Obama may gain props from the ruling class but the black community will skewer him for it.

Obama would not have won the election if he had not gotten blacks to come out in droves to vote. It doesn’t matter who the Republicans put up as a candidate in 2012, blacks won’t vote for him (her). However, they will stay at home if they see Obama as little more than a tool of Whitey.

Obama will not get too deep in this. If Republicans were smart they would stoke the fires and encourage any suggestion that Reid is a racist. I hate Reid but wouldn’t label him a racist. But, since I do label him as a traitor, I would feel better to see everyone pile on him as a racist pig determined to keep a black man out of the Senate.

JadeNYU on December 31, 2008 at 1:03 PM

If Roland Burris is qualified and ethical, why should he not lobby for the seat? He’s 71 and this may be his chance to cap off his political career, holding the seat for just the next 2 years. He knows there might be a ‘taint’ over any candidate Blago chose, so if he is clean, he had a compelling reason to lobby the Gov for the appointment. It may be that after Blago got arrested and he surveyed the lay of the land there in Chicago, he saw an opening to present himself to Blago as the best choice. Burris, Blago and Rush may all benefit from the Identity Politics of the DEM party. Will the DEMS really mount an effort to block Burris from being seated, and is that even Constitutional?

A black commenter responds to Rush:

Here’s Rush arguing for the importance of a black senator. To which I respond–Nigga, please!!

I don’t know if I’ve shifted politically or what. But after watching a black man named Barack Obama–who couldn’t get into the Democratic convention eight years ago–win Virginia, North Carolina, New Mexico and Colorado, my tolerance for Negroes claiming that we need an appointment like this–in this kind of situation–is zilch.

Look, I say this as a black dude obviously concerned about race in this country. If you want a black senator go out and do the work to get yourself one. Build the organizations, build the fund-raising, do a black version of Emily’s List, if need be. At some point, you have to stop bitching about the track. You have to stop bitching about your hand-me-down spikes. At some point, you just have to go out and run. I have little tolerance for the racial grievances of upper-middle class blacks. Do for your damn self, and speak for your damn self. Keep my name out your mouth.

Nobody should be surprised about Bobby Rush’s playing the race card. He got his start in the 1960′s in the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) then went on to be the co-founder if the IL chapter of the Black Panther Party.

So by background he is a Marxist and black nationalist who tempered much of his overt radicalism in later decades. Unsurprisingly, this 25 year Congressman is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

in_awe on December 31, 2008 at 3:27 PM

One day in Novenber we had an election, and the circus came to town.

Yoop on December 31, 2008 at 3:34 PM

For the uninitiated, let me bring you up to speed about Bobby Rush.

Bobby Rush is a loudmouthed thug who happens to be one of the founding members of the Black Panthers in Chicago. Following his election to a seat on the Chicago City Council, and later to Congress, both due in part to the Chicago Democratic Political Machine which Mayor Richard Daley runs and swears does not exist, he was elected to Congress, where he has continued his tradition of being a loudmouthed thug.

When you all saw him on TV yesterday and again today, he was once again proudly displaying his two most consistent traits, namely being a loudmouth, and a thug.

Oh, and Bobby just loves playing the race card! He’ll play the race card like a poker player will play an Ace. This is actually the third trait of his that he has remained consistent on.

So remember, whenever you hear the name Bobby Rush, just think loudmouthed race-card playing thug, and you will up to par on just one of the many many aspects of Chicago-style politics.

“He should step up and lay this turd out.”

and if he does, that would make one time in Obama’s life that he has done something that takes even an eentsy tiny bit of political courage.

So the chances of the One taking strong action here – hmmm, tap tap tap, de-dum de-dum…..well, the chances are zero.

notagool on December 31, 2008 at 6:08 PM

Bobby Rush has been very sick with cancer. I’m not sure what his status is today, but he looks like the Wrath of God that’s for sure. Not making excuses, the guy makes me crazy, but in all fairness he has been very sick.

Roland will be my Senator as Barry was my Senator. Maybe old Roland will pay more attention to the job than Barry did. Illinois politics and politicians are in a low class by themselves, that’s for sure. This is the environment that Barry comes from….keep that in mind for the next 4-8 years ahead.

UnEasyRider on December 31, 2008 at 6:09 PM

Since Obama’s senate seat has officially become ‘black’, does that mean that all future presidents have to be black? Guess for a Democrat that makes sense, seeing as Mass. will always need a “Kennedy” in the senate.

GarandFan on December 31, 2008 at 6:11 PM

…it would appear that Mr. Rush is consistent, and is continuing to be “professionally black”….

…it’s not a bad gig if you can get it…nowadays, it’s downright fashionable…nobody dares question your motives…hell, if you’re a congressman from Louisiana, you can get away with hiding hundreds of sponduliks in your various kitchen appliances with impugnity….

…we’ve come from a place where a man was automatically guilty if he’s black to an almost full circle, where a man’s automatically guiltless if he’s black….

…progress…of a sort….

I agree. Right now, Obama is seen as representing African-Americans. But eventually, he’s going to have to disappoint on something they want badly that the country as a whole will never go for. Once that happens, we’ll see the spectacle of a liberal Democrat black politician being called an “oreo.”

Obama probably knows it, though, so I wouldn’t look for any bold statements on his part.
