Jacob Weisberg: The Only Reason Obama Will Lose is Racism

Jacob Weisberg has a post at Slate in which he publishes a preemptive strike should Barack Obama lose:

If it makes you feel better, you can rationalize Obama's missing 10-point lead on the basis of Clintonite sulkiness, his slowness in responding to attacks, or the concern that Obama may be too handsome, brilliant, and cool to be elected. But let's be honest: If you break the numbers down, the reason Obama isn't ahead right now is that he trails badly among one group, older white voters. He does so for a simple reason: the color of his skin.

So older white voters' racism is the only reason why Barack Obama could lose. Really? There are a lot of reasons why older white voters are reluctant to vote for Barack Obama. These are only a few:

Maybe it's because older white voters remember the depression and how it caused many, many Americans to lose everything they had, forcing some to roam the country like nomads looking for work, so they're reluctant to make a man who is inexperienced managing a budget and setting economic policy, and who wants to institute an economic nightmare called socialized medicine president of the United States.

Maybe it's because they remember the cold war with the Soviet Union and how Nikita Khrushchev threatened to bury us and who insisted our children would grow up speaking Russian, so when they see Obama react with nonchalance and even go so far to blame the US when Russia's tanks rolled into sovereign Georgia, they are reluctant to put him in charge of America's foreign policy.

Maybe it's because they remember clearly how Jimmy Carter destroyed America's strength and respect in the world because of his pacifism and weakness in the face of aggression, so they're reluctant to make a man who wants to surrender in Iraq when it's clear we've already won commander in chief of our armed forces.

Maybe it's because they remember the human rights tragedy of the Tienanmen Square Massacre when the communist Chinese government killed and injured their own citizens in an effort to squash political descent, so when Barack Obama praised China's infrastructure and said it's significantly better than America's, they're reluctant make Barack Obama president of the United States.

According to Jacob Weisberg, it couldn't be any of these reasons. No, it can be only racism.

So, apparently a big chunk of people suddenly came down with racism.

Obama was supposedly leading a while back. He had upwards of a ten point lead, but that's gone now.

Did several million people just notice that he's not exactly a plain old white guy? If race was the reason he's not massively in he lead, wouldn't that have shown up before now?

"...the concern that Obama may be too handsome, brilliant, and cool to be elected."

Good Lord. The man is as close to being a completely empty suit as any candidate for the presidency has ever been. His only asset is the color of his skin, which will make a substantial number of Americans uneasy about voting against him.

At some point, when the polls have ceased to be guided by politically correct selection of audiences and settings, even the Old Media will have to take note of Obama's micro-miniature resume and ineptitude when deprived of a teleprompter. Until then, the Weisbergs of the world will continue to trumpet the invincibility of the Chosen One.

He is racist and projects this on others, accusing them of racism; he is communist when it comes to any state other then, I bet, Israel; he is filled with a desire to see the "evil Germans" (all whites) overthrown in all nationstates that were once thier own. In short, he's a jerk.

I didn't have time to read the above, but I'm glad someone apparently got the courage to point out how racist most American blacks have become while whites are going in the other direction. All of my kids are inter-racial (yes, half black) and I have seen up close and personal the kind of blind "loyalty" to the left and their pseudo-civil rights line the "black community" has adhered to, but now we know, by Obama, that it was always all about race. It's just that the offenders and offendies have migrated into the others former position. Which means: Even though 99.9% of all blacks will vote for the black guy no matter what, the fact that more and more whites are free from the shackles of "white guilt"(with all due respect to what Shelby Steele has outlined in his books and articles) now, it only takes about 60% percent of "us" to vote pro-American(not anti-black) to reject an anti-American, full blown Marcist like Barry Obama.

(shh, don't tell the media about this. They would have to change all of the opinions they insert in every story they report on. Wouldn't want to put them out or anything now.)

Maybe it's because older white voters remember the depression

Unlikely. The Great Depression started in 1929 and lasted about ten years. To have any meaningful memory of the Depression, a person would have to have been born no later than 1934. Someone born in 1934 would be 74 this year. I think you can safely say that "people 74 and older" is not a significant voting bloc .. and that age group tends to vote Democrat anyway, since many of them believe it was a Republican who caused the Depression and a Democrat who ended it.

Your other suggested reasons are all quite valid. And I would add another: older voters probably remember clearly the Great American Economic Winning Streak of the 1950s and 1960s, all under economically-conservative administrations, as well as the economic woes of the 1970s and the revival that followed Reagan's election in 1980.

Crickmore, the Hagee association does not work. Read Obama's two best sellers to find out why.

Obama has been getting a pass from the legacy media in large part because he is not white. NBCCBSABCWPNYTLATNPRTIMENW et al swill white liberal guilt and have been in the tank for Obama from the beginning.

There is no underestimation of Obama's task to become president; rather there has been a very sober analysis by voters of recent that has cast a critical eye on this very soft treatment by the legacy media. U S voters are not stupid and they have an inate sense of fairness that is far superior and discerning than the intoxicated media celebrity worshippers.

Obama peaked in July just before the Berlin speech, which was effrontery and arrogance at its worst. Americans have a keen ear for this sort of thing in spite of the piss poor public education that liberals offer. Obama has squandered the advantage given to him by the obsequious guilt ridden legacy media in this country.

That is why the Clintons are so pissed. And they should be (although I can't find much of anything that I agree with them on politically, except NAFTA) because they are fighters and real competitors that overcame all manner of obstacles that the fawning legacy media has ignored or removed for their buddy Obama.

Steve Crickmore:

There is no doubt that Obama benefited enormously in black areas because of his heritage. But in the overall scheme of things he loses perhapslet's say double, even in Hispanic areas, what he gains because of his skin colour, rather than his race. He is after all as much white as black genetically.

It was Mark Penn, Hillary`s strategist idea to run a campaign based on Obama being "unAmerican". I wonder what smears the Rove strategists who are now in charge of McCain`s campaign will dust off. At least, they won`t be able to highlight that there is only one major candidate in this election who wasn't born in America.
As far as Hagee goes it took quite a lot of 'barracking' before McCain backed off. McCain actively sought Hagee`s endorsement when Hagee`s views were well known, not the other way round. I mean that was why Hagee was popular (and controversial),and McCain still wanted his endorsement.

And Hugh, you know why Obama as a local organizer, attended Wright`s church, the largest and most influential in the South side of Chicago, even though Obama used to dissent personally with Wright`s interpretation of how Wright viewed modern civil rights. You have read his books, where he actually talks about their disagreements. Are there any traditional Anglican "high churches and Tory" on the South Side. They seem to be about the only ones that don`t give offence..but wait, they are now riven with controversy about who their ministers can sleep with.

And the Clinton's overcoming all manner of obstacles . I grant you that was an obstacle, having to swear that she was telling the truth, on the Bible, in front of a grand jury. Hillary`s 120 odd "I don`t recall performance" on `travelgate` when she blew off the Bible so contemptously, was that the beginning of your enormous respect for Hillary that they (the Clintons) are fighters and enormous competitors.

MikeW:

Actually, blacks vote overwhelmingly for Democrats, not for black candidates, and the extent that they do is dramatically overstated, given that blacks are disproportionately urban dwelling and below average income. Black voters voted strongly for the white Ben Cardin over the black Michael Steele and for the white Ted Strickland over the black Ken Blackwell.

I think Weisberg dramatically overstates the impact of racism, but he does make a couple of good points - by historical standards, Obama should be ahead by double digits, and he's only ever been ahead of McCain by a couple of points. He also raises the statistic from the PA exit polls saying that 5% polled stated that they wouldn't vote for a black man. Five per cent makes a huge difference.

Look, no one will admit to being racist, but it's ridiculous to assume that it's not there. On either side. And if Obama loses, there will be a number of factors, not the least of which will be his numerous shortcomings which have been documented to death. It's certainly not true that "anyone who doesn't vote for Obama is a racist". But racism will play a part in this race. Maybe not a big part. Maybe not a noticeable one. But it will be there.

Obama is the fastest rising... (Below threshold)

Obama is the fastest rising political star we've seen in a long time. It could be argued that Obama has been so successful because of his color. He has carried a small lead almost all the way. Even against his white female opponent who had the advantage of mass recognition. If "the road Obama will have had to travel in order to become the nation's first black president" is rough it's partly because he has been deliberately throwing tacks in the road, not only in front of him, but behind him with his own allusions to race; the "clinging to guns and religion" remark, the not looking like the "other presidents on the dollar bill" remark and the "typical white person" remark, just to name a few. People felt they were being pigeon-holed due to religious beliefs or their color. If he had stayed away from it, he would have gained more of the undecided group.

Gore got 90% of the black vote. Kerry got 88% of the black vote. And you know what? They were both white. Black people generally vote Democratic. They're voting for Obama because he's a Democrat. They're surely more enthusiastic about their vote now because their candidate is black, but there's little change in the numbers. So I wouldn't accuse them of racism. But since many white people are voting for Obama then suddenly the one's that don't are implied racist. Not because they're republican or conservative, but because their candidate is white.

I call horseshit. If all I have to do to prove I'm not racist is vote for a black guy we're in a real mess. I mean, why would I be so stupid to think that my everyday actions speak for me? All I have to do is act against my carefully considered judgment of who would make the best President and I'm off scot-free.

But because I'm voting McCain, I'm eyed with suspicion. I'm a 'closet racist' or I'm 'racist on a subconscious level'. I know this because Obama himself told me so.

And to end:

Wolfwalker: it's not whether older white voters constitute any sizable voting bloc. That's not the point at all. The implication that they're racist is what Kim addresses.

MikeW -

I don't give a damn, speaking as a hypothetical white older male voter, (Man, how did I ever get into THAT demographic?) about skin color. I'd vote for McCain if he were white or black or tan or yellow. I'd probably have some problems with dark purple and unbreathing or greenish-yellow and bloated, but I will freely state I won't even CONSIDER voting for the metabolically challenged. They've allowed the MC to vote in Chicago for years, and look at what that's gotten 'em.

Conversely, I wouldn't consider at all voting for Obama no matter what color his skin is.

What matters to me is experience and ideas. McCain's got experience, Obama doesn't. I don't neccesarily agree with McCain's ideas, but they don't fill me with the sense of a train wreck waiting to happen that Obama's hopey-changefulness banalities generate. Obama's a hell of an orator - but that's about the best that can be said for him.

The Democrats have well and truely screwed themselves into the ground on this one.

The reality is that this article is setting the stage for the poison pill of berating America for being racist for the next 4-8 years if you pick John McCain. Just like berating America for being a Warmonging Civil Rights violator was punishment for electing/re-electing George Bush.

MikeW:

JLawson,

I'm sure that racism isn't a factor with you personally. As I said, people will choose not to vote for Obama for any number of reasons, not the least of which are his many weaknesses and his inexperience. What I said was that like it or not, racism will be a factor in this race, if not in every individual voter who participates in it, and it is ridiculous to assume that it won't.

Mark,

1. According to the RCP tracking polls, Obama has never been up by that much. (To be fair, there was one Newsweek poll in June that had him up by 15, but it was clearly an outlier.) He's been ahead all of this year, fluctuating between high and low single digit leads. Given the circumstances, his lead should be 20 points.

2. There are a huge number of factors that influence how people vote, and you can't break it down to a "one-two" step like that. Personally, I'd like to see a study that compares black and white voting habits, controlled for geography and income. I'd bet that blacks still vote disproportionately Democratic, but it won't be by a 9-1 margin.

And IMHO, you were pretty concise.

MikeW:

RM, "controlled for geography and income" means that black and white voting habits are compared across levels of those categories. Since black people are more likely than white people to live in large urban centres (big cities voted for Kerry over Bush by a 60-39 margin) and have a lower mean income (lower income groups vote more Democratic), it's reasonable to assume that these factors are exaggerating the extent to which blacks vote Democratic.

On the other hand, it's equally possible that big cities and low income groups vote more Democratic purely because they have greater proportions of black people. I don't know. But I'd like to see it studied.

"I'd bet that blacks still vote disproportionately Democratic, but it won't be by a 9-1 margin."

Yours would be a safe bet. We have empirical evidence of it. But a 9-1 margin is pretty damn close - at least when applied to the general election.

By election (rounded to nearest percent):
2004 - 88% Kerry
2000 - 90% Gore
1996 - 84% Clinton
1992 - 83% Clinton
1988 - 88% Dukakis
1984 - 89% Mondale
1980 - 86% Carter

Avg. 86.9%

Incidentally, the "First Black American President", Bill Clinton, got less of the black vote than others in recent history and dragged the percent down a bit.

If you're speaking about ALL elections, city, state, etc. it shouldn't be too hard to research. But if we're making bets here, I'd bet it's closer to 8-10.

My only point is, it's probably more like 10 - 1, left v. right, in the final analysis. Trust me, you don't even joke about voting republican in the circles I travel.

"Are you assuming ALL the rest went to the GOP?"

No. And never implied it either. I wasn't talking about polls or how much of the black vote went to republicans.

But if you're interested, the republican candidate did not get ALL the remaining black votes.

For instance:

1980 - Carter 86% / Reagan 12% (other 2%)
1984 - Mondale 89% / Reagan 9% (other 2%)
1988 - Dukakis 88% / Bush 10% (other 2%)

In 92 'other' was as high as 7% (maybe because of Perot) and 96 was 4%. The rest are 1% - 2%. So I don't know where you're getting your "AT LEAST 5% (AND UP TO AS MUCH AS 10% OR EVEN MORE!)

I know that black voters have historically voted overwhelmingly Democratic, and by the looks of it, it remains remarkably constant over the years - except, as you point out, 1992 and 1996, where Ross Perot took a chunk of the black vote. I'm interested to see the extent to which blacks vote Democratic compared to low income whites who live in large cities.

JLawson - you could be right. We'll never know, given that the majority of people who vote based on race won't admit it. Racists exist on both side of aisle.

Okay, I see. I misunderstood your question. I was answering to the question of whether or not blacks vote majority Democrat and what percentages (in the general election). Not the percentage of blacks and whites in urban areas and low-income groups. Got it, and I'm doing a little searching now to see what I can find. But the simple fact that most large cities are Democrat strongholds may say more about class than race. I did see a study not too long ago that showed that low-income urban blacks voted Democratic in higher percentages than those in rural areas.

And I just had a whole comment laid out to you when I realized I was confusing your last comment as Mark's. :)

Oyster,

I'm sure you are the more accurate as you are actually delving into the numbers and I am operating (partially) off of anecdotal evidence. To be specific, I was referring to all of these, "Who's where, right now" polls, where it is very common -even now w/ BO and JM- that the numbers for each only add up to 89% or less sometimes. I realize there is no "Don't Know" choice when you actually vote, but I am surprised that the "other" number isn't higher. Assuming it represented the ACP or some other leftist group, it pretty much did amount to a 10 - 1 ratio though. Good work just the same, thanks.

Or maybe voters will actually think and decide, wait a minute this guy has done nothing of significance in this country and he wants to be president...No your right it couldnt be any of those reasons. It would have to be racism because Obama is half black, imitates martin luther king during speeches and his the messiah right? So if people don't vote for him than their racist.
