Dan Rather: “Obama couldn’t sell watermelons” [Video]

DAN RATHER: Part of the undertow in the coming election is going to be President Obama's leadership. And the Republicans will make a case and a lot of independents will buy this argument. "Listen he just hasn't been, look at the health care bill. It was his number one priority. It took him forever to get it through and he had to compromise it to death." And a version of, "Listen he's a nice person, he's very articulate" this is what's been used against him, "but he couldn't sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic."
Well here is the video of the much talked about quote from Dan Rather.  Notice how Mathews immediately begins talking over Dan Rather and never bothers to admonish him.  This is the typical way the left plays fast and loose with off colored statements.

From what I heard on Rush today, the video clip has been scrubbed from Matthew’s site. Had this been a conservative or a Republican who made this analogy, it would have been blasted on every single network in America.  That old double standard is firmly in effect.

When ObamaCare finally crashes and burns, expect a lot more of these off colored remarks to slip past the lips of the compassion people.

Ohhhhh, I get it now.

Apparently black people in America are notoriously known for eating watermelons, so Rather made a racist statement.

Of course, as you said, since he is a liberal, the MSM ignored this whole exchange.

I wondered why this story broke today on the Conservative grapevine.

Hey, I love your stuff. You are one of the few blogs I take the time to visit often. Nicely done!

Long Live the Republic.

What is Rush Limbaugh had said the same thing? All hell would have rained down on him. I wonder if obama spits the seeds out on the floor?

But then Slick Willie Clintons, He would be serving us coffee not long ago.

Apparently Rather flobbed his setup phrasing. He really was trying to get us all to be ragging on the Republicans for being racists.

Nice technique if you can pull it off.
