Hey Michael Tomasky, Guess Who Else Says “Obamacare?”
Michael Tomasky over at the Daily Beast has written a post where he calls Mitt Romney some pretty unsavory names after the candidate gave a speech yesterday to the NAACP. Here’s what he called Romney:
I think of him as a spineless, disingenuous, supercilious, race-mongering pyromaniac who is very poorly intentioned indeed and woe to us if this man sets foot in the White House as anything but a tourist.
One of his biggest issues was Romney’s use of the word ‘Obamacare.” He was very unhappy with that and had this to say:
You don’t go into the NAACP and use the word “Obamacare” and think that you’re not going to hear some boos. It’s a heavily loaded word, and Romney and his people know very well that liberals and the president’s supporters consider it an insult.
He even goes on to say that President Obama campaigned in 2008 without using “such loaded phrases he and his speechwriters knew would piss off his audience.”
OK, so ‘Obamacare’ is heavily loaded word, Romney knew it would piss people off, and now Tomasky has decided that makes Romney a racebaiter. Fair enough.
Since I’m a helpful guy I wanted to help Tomasky out and give him a tip on another person who uses that heavily loaded, insulting, and racebaiting term ‘Obamacare” so he can write another post and also point out their insensitive racebaiting. Here goes:

And just in case that was a typo or something, there’s also this:
At a fundraiser at the Tyler Perry studios in Atlanta last week, Obama also used the term and said he doesn’t mind it because it shows he “does care.”
“Change is, yes, health care reform,” Obama said to applause. “You want to call it Obamacare — that’s okay, because I do care.”
I await Tomasky’s post calling out this ‘racebaiter’ for using this horrible, insulting, racebaiting word.
