Derogatory Statements made by our Government Officials and others, regarding President Barack
Obama:

 Pat Buchanan responded to
Al Sharpton's comment regarding tax cuts: “Please don’t throw
me under the briar patch!
” The term Briar Patch, is a saying typically meant to indicate reverse
psychology that happens to come from “Uncle Remus and Legends of the Old Plantation” fable
that gave us the term “tar baby”. (The terms “Br’er Rabbi” and "tar baby" seem to be more
common now that Barack Obama is leading this Nation.) (2012)

 Pat Buchannan refers to President Obama as "boy." (August 2011)

 Representative Doug Lamborn (R-CO) said dealing with President Obama in the debt ceiling
negotiations was "
like touching a tar baby". (August 2011)

 As Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball with Chris Matthews" reflected on Obama
State of the Union address, he dropped the line, "
I forgot he was black for an hour," while
discussing the apparent lack of racial overtones during the speech. Later, Matthews tried to clarify
his comments on "
The Rachel Maddow Show" by explaining that he was delighted to see race had
no place in the State of the Union address after growing up in a country divided by race. "
It wasn't
even in the room tonight
," he said. (January 2010)

 Newt Gingrich has reported several times that Obama is pretending to be "normal" but actually
seems to be engaged in "
Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior". "Following a Kenyan, anti-colonial
worldview." Gingrich has also asked, "
What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that
only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his
actions]?" Another quote from Gingrich about President Obama, "This is a person who is
fundamentally out of touch with how the world works, who happened to have played a
wonderful con, as a result of which he is now president." He goes on to say, "I think he
worked very hard at being a person who is normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan,
transparent, accommodating -- none of which was true," Gingrich continues. "In the
Alinksy tradition, he was being the person he needed to be in order to achieve the position
he needed to achieve . . . He was authentically dishonest.
"

 During the
healthcare reform debates, the Tea Party and Republicans accused the President
Obama of "
stealing white Americans’ money to pay for his homies health insurance."

 When President Obama
instructed the DEA to back off medical marijuana users, the chatter
was that he was repaying the “bros” in the ghetto for their votes.

 One of several high-profile politicians to merit a mention in the controversial book "
Game
Change," Harry Reid, a Democrat and longtime Obama ally, was cited in the book for describing
the president before his election as a "'
light-skinned' African American, 'with no Negro dialect,
unless he wanted to have one.'
" (January 2010)

 Mike Parry, then a GOP Senate candidate, was found to have scrubbed several tweets from his
Twitter account, including one that described Obama as a "power hungry arrogant black man."
Neither Parry nor his campaign manager returned calls or e-mail seeking comment, but later said,
"
My opinion is that our president is arrogant and angry. The fact is that he is a black man."
(January 2010)

 Former President Bill Clinton was one of many politicians called out in Mark Halperin and John
Heilemann's new book "Game Change." In the book, they said Clinton caught flak from Obama's
campaign for reportedly telling the late Sen.
Ted Kennedy of Obama, "A few years ago, this guy
would have been getting us coffee.
