-- home party in -- says coded things that makes totally.
Adds up about stuff falsely saying the president's trying to -- welfare reform I think you're going to see.
A lot of pretty heavily and not so subtly coded messages.
From the Romney -- campaign.
-- Maryland governor Martin O'Malley the head of the Democratic Governors Association in an interview last week.
Warning people to watch for what he calls and coded attacks at the Republican National Convention.
Since then we've heard more warnings like that -- from some on the left.
And here weigh in on all of -- Herman Cain former GOP candidate for president and the founder of godfathers pizza.
Welcome back to the program mr.
king is a pleasure to Seattle Megan thank you.
This feels like the debates okay.
Let's get back to the 999 plan now -- 99 is fine fine fine it.
Is that a coded message he has sent a.
I am so sick of this racial coded by loaning.
They not only but taken black people for granted but taken a -- vote for granted.
But they also.
Keep being black conservative faces away from.
The general public.
Because of what some of the liberal outlets do -- now -- people to look for racially coded coded messages is baloney.
But and the reason is is because.
They have three tactics.
Yes -- if that's an acronym that -- -- seeing it they shift the subject.
They shifted it from Obama -- record over to all of the distractions I they ignore the facts.
They ignore the fact.
That 716 billion dollars he is a cut and they ignored the fact to Medicare by Medicare Obama exactly and they ignored the fact.
That in fact.
That the whole thing relative to Obama wanting to.
-- The work requirements in welfare it's true but I'm not mad at you -- -- -- that that's true but can't make combat.
And try to use different language to basically why.
This is the ad that they're talking about that you're talking about where -- where Ronnie wrote governor -- suggests that.
Obama President Obama has stripped the work requirements out of welfare.
And this is something that has been raided this claim pants on fire and gotten some Nokia's from the Washington Post and yet.
Others have come out and said yeah.
Hold on not so fast is actually does have a legitimate foundation.
Also there's a debate about that but the question is whether the argument is going to a racial place with a visit coded racial message in this.
And I'm saying absolutely.
Not that is not a coded message in that let me give you another reason.
There -- allowed only.
Black people will -- There are some white people welfare and there -- -- Hispanics on welfare.
They are so desperate.
That they want people to begin looking for something that's not there in the run the ads and in the run again but they're also going after governor Ronnie for making this joke.
Add their campaign stop in and you watch for yourself hold off.
I love being home in this place where and I were raised where both of us were born.
And was born and Henry Ford hospital I was born and harper hospital.
No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate they know that this is the the place.
So he makes a joke and now.
Among others Michael Eric Dyson he's a refresher for a sociology authored eighteen books on race and racism comes out and says that is some of the basis most despicable bigotry.
When you can imagine.
And in the Obama campaign manager Jim Messina actually tried to fund raise off of -- saying imagine what this actually says about Mitt Romney.
When I was still a candidate and I was campaigning in Tennessee.
I made the state and it.
I am glad to be home I was born in Tennessee even though I was raised in Georgia and I have -- -- -- -- and I don't have to show it to you.
It was a joke in Nam because they are desperate they want to use any possibility to try to shift the subject as I've seen it.
Didn't make this racial because they are so desperate.
That if they can't play the race card they wanna played a class warfare card and it's so bad they have them look at thought cool -- -- still below.
The other item that they've pointed to is when President Obama mean when governor -- came out after Joseph Biden our vice president came out and told a group of voters largely African American that the Republican Party wanted to put you all back and change yes.
Governor Ronnie finally came out and said it takes your politics of hate.
Back to Chicago he said Mr.
President take -- campaign -- division anger and hate back to Chicago and let us get about rebuilding immediate re uniting America but now some people are saying.
Hate and anger those words that's a coded -- -- racial -- -- -- the black man in life full of hate and anger.
That whole party is full of hate and anger OK and like I say -- they are so desperate look.
They are talking about coded racial comments.
Vice President Biden said they wanna put you all back in -- that's not cold.
That is direct -- other words the liberals and the Democrats they want that -- kids both ways.
They wanna be vicious being used foul language and crossed the land.
But as soon as governor Romney bought in either Republicans or conservatives has anything that.
Challenges their position then they're ready to say it is the Republicans and not them they want it both ways.
I got a -- -- quick answer but it's so great to see how he's doing is this is this exciting for you or is it hard because you know.
You wanted to be begun to stage this is still very exciting for the following reasons wanted to reasons that I'm here in Tampa to do as much TV as -- doing.
Is I want to track and basically -- communicate the enthusiasm that's here at the convention.
Back to the people that wanted to make the Tampa I'm having a ball I don't -- electrified a senior and Larry King you know -- a -- there thanks Megan thanks for being here.
