ObamaNation: McCain Says Obama Playing ‘Race Card’

John McCain’s camp is accusing Barack Obama of playing “the race card,” according to the New York Times.

“Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck,’’ Rick Davis, McCain’s campaign manager, said in a statement, citing remarks Obama made on Wednesday, where he said Republicans are scaring voters by pointing out he “doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

“It’s divisive, negative, shameful and wrong,” Davis adds.

A spokesman for the Obama campaign said: “This is a race about big challenges…Barack Obama in no way believes that the McCain campaign is using race as an issue, but he does believe they’re using the same old low-road politics to distract voters from the real issues in this campaign, and those are the issues he’ll continue to talk about.”

    Hmmm…seems like a not so subtle move from the McCain camp to remind people that Obama is black (he’s actually mixed heritage…its funny how the media forgets to actually report this fact). This is nothing new. I recall the Clintons did the same thing in the primaries. Bill’s South Carolina comments come to mind.
