Bolson on… Observations and opinion on “We the People…”

CNN’s David Gergen flashes the race card, says too early for Obama to declare victory because Obama is black.

Citing a Stanford University study, CNN’s David Gergen just noted in post-debate analysis that it is too early to declare Barack Obama the victor of the 2008 presidential race simply because Obama is black. Saying the polls are not totally believable, Gergen noted that Obama’s “blackness” may cost him as much as six points. “We don’t know about the race factor in America,” Gergen said.

Clearly the race card is out of the deck and on the table in this election cycle and some in the mainstream media like CNN’s despicable David Gergen are willing to play it if Obama loses the election. Sometimes, in politics as in poker, the bluff is as powerful as the actual playing of the card–even if it’s a shameful CNN talking head holding the card in plain sight.
