A South Carolina State Representative named Kris Crawford, who is also a doctor himself, met with doctors opposed to the Affordable Care Act recently and made a very interesting statement on the matter. Whether the law was a good thing or not, it’s just good politics — at least in South Carolina — to oppose the black guy:
Rep. Kris Crawford, a Republican from Florence and also an emergency room doctor, supports the expansion but expects the Republican caucus to vote as a bloc against the Medicaid expansion.
“The politics are going to overwhelm the policy. It is good politics to oppose the black guy in the White House right now, especially for the Republican Party,” Crawford said.
When I read this, I went straight over to Free Republic to see their entirely predictable reactions:
Half Black/Half White and a Natural Born Lying Commie B_tard…
It’s the libs bringing up race again. Shows where the real racism is…
No …it’s good politics to oppose the socialist, gun grabbing, Muslim, faggot in the White House.
Always keeping it classy and non-racist.
