Silence that is what we're hearing from the Obama campaign after one of the president's Virginia -- team members.
State senator Louise Lucas made the outrageous claim that racism.
Is playing a role in governor Romney's campaign on his reminder what she said.
Let's be real clear about.
Mitt Romney is speaking to -- group of people out there who don't let folks like president Barack Obama if any elective -- leadership position.
We know what's gone on here and some people may not be afraid and -- -- may be afraid to -- what I'm not.
I'm not afraid to say please -- into that brand out there.
Who do not want to see anybody.
Other bands up about a white -- did that in a leadership position.
Do you really believe now that.
This is still about race.
Absolutely believe it's all about race to -- -- first time.
In my life I've been able to come -- my children ballots that racism and other -- and whale.
Now her comments are absolutely absurd and the president and his team should have come out immediately and that denounce these comments after all.
The president's chief spend doctor David Axelrod he made a very bold statement earlier today saying that they eighth meeting the Obama campaign a running a positive campaign -- some of us.
I would point out that that -- much of our advertising has been.
Positive we've been.
Of from the very beginning of this campaign we've been the target of hundreds -- more than a hundred million dollar dollars of negative ads from governor Romney.
And his colleagues.
I just another example to add to the long laundry list of Obama hypocrisy -- joining me now -- reaction.
Nationally syndicated radio talk show host David Webb and he's on serious -- -- and the new York civil rights coalition Mike Myers that's good to see -- first of all it wants to once it's it's actually Obama who was outspent Romney and 90% 95% of his -- at the negative.
That's issue one.
What I wanna know was -- president's ability.
John -- and I mean let's face it it was never going to happen -- his.
We've talked about this the only way you can do this is divide people up into groups into sub sets and try to get that amalgamation again.
But this goes beyond that because we -- This is horrific what she said.
-- you know what's even horrific to me that she says I absolutely believe it's all about race and for the first time in my life.
I've been able to convince my children finally that racism is alive and well.
Racism is taught.
That's why can be on -- that's why people get their Tiffany's this woman is actually practicing racism and this campaign.
And she has for a national conversation on race.
But she's you are good but she it -- -- she's a surrogate she's with a quote Virginia truth teams she's speaking on behalf of the campaign.
And once again.
The president is silent any lectures a country regularly.
-- -- -- and -- I must say that when I heard her comments I show.
Because they were not only -- they were ignorant.
They were abhorrent to you were raised since they were venomous poison this -- who -- -- And it needs reputation it needs to be answered and the answer to your question is where is -- Barack Obama the voice.
Either there's -- affiliates he the tools like two things one is gonna callousness he just doesn't have dubbed.
Courage to speak up against racial bigotry of this time this -- -- rhetoric.
Didn't -- all else they have agreement he must agree.
This guy's -- be wondering what particular approach people in the India in the world and he had not addressed the issue here is -- and I think he had done it fives which racial rhetoric I think -- Arafat and Jeremiah -- how to get better environment with.
Derek -- He identifies with Al Sharpton he identified with the new Black Panther Party he and Eric Holder who call call that they can -- and I would understand they need all the talents that not speaking truth can see -- -- the truth from our panel to team up and he cannot speak to prove my -- a hero wanna know.
Because it seems.
They -- this is one very big distinction between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
You know welfare as we know at -- big government is over and a sister soldier moment Bill Maher.
You know the war on women he takes a million dollars from a guy who uses the C word B word against.
You know prominent conservative women.
This case racial rhetoric used by somebody that's a surrogate spokesperson.
Part of their truth squad and silence and the media also no coverage well.
That there's two forms of hypocrisy going on there the one is the media the media won't cover it to the Obama campaign comes out and they take every effort.
When a sorry get from live for Mitt Romney's speech to Parse it to attack it.
But when bears do something even worse think about it this woman it represents Virginia's eighteen district.
Do they represent you.
That's the question for America tonight as -- -- these people represent you and your values.
Last -- Mike throughout my last word is that IE I have to say that this is such who are racist statement.
Anytime you evaluate a person.
Simply because he's black it's racist if you oppose his record could do that you criticize it probably want to -- also felon at Romney's you know now basically been -- -- -- -- -- I say to Barack Obama -- say to him directly.
Find your voice condemned as a racial poison stopped his hatred and -- -- Polar literally what you don't know if you will not do it won't do this is who he is who.
Take a look at the man for who he is it's sad to say hey he's a racist I'm saying that this is part of who we had -- -- -- of racial demagoguery write and think about the show on file we're.
Progressives pray PR -- on everybody to achieve their goal is that -- is -- more simplistic and that that there -- that the Obama campaign is willing now to say anything because they can't run their record to get a lap salute without what is a more simple double file divide in just -- I say get him to vote for I say that this.
He has failed in terms of what he promised.
And people need to speak the truth.
His numbers have his trophy to -- the true.
And if -- and and they never do that all there and -- engage in the political rhetoric and and force hood where -- president's ability.
-- isn't it never was there there's not enough.
