“What Barack Obama was talking about was that he didn’t get here after spending decades in Washington,” Gibbs said. “There is nothing more to this than the fact that he was describing that he was new to the political scene. He was referring to the fact that he didn’t come into the race with the history of others. It is not about race.”
This reminds me of that game one plays with children where you cover your face with your hands and tease, “You can’t see me! You can’t see me!” They will giggle and shriek, “Yes, I can! You’re right there!” Children love this game and will play for hours. Apparently, the Obama campaign believes we will, too.
