Former Obama White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, now a political commentator for CNN, casually admitted that, yes, his party uses race to convince minorities that Republicans seek to oppress them.
Before the midterm election, Carney said: “Republicans are going to pick up seats in the Senate and the House, and they may win control of the Senate. So (Democrats) need to mobilize their base voters, and that is especially true of minority voters.”
Carney also admitted that the use of the race card is cynical: “Equating support for stand-your-ground law … doesn’t mean you supported the action that took Trayvon Martin’s life. So that’s the kind of, you know, rough ad — similar to the one we saw from the Republican. I think we’ve come to expect that, and hopefully a lot of voters … kind of tune it out.”
