Senator Ted Cruz made an outrageous comment today that President Obama has “Inflamed Racial Tensions” in America. How exactly did President Obama inflame racial tensions? Ted Cruz didn’t offer a coherent explanation. The truth is Ted Cruz’s comments are a dog whistle signal to the hard-right base of the Republican Party that have wanted the nation’s first black president to fail from day one. His comments are aimed at white Republican primary voters who “Can’t quite put their finger on it,” but haven’t trusted President Obama since he burst onto the national scene in 2007. They call him the most liberal, the most lawless, the most un-American president we’ve ever had. They basically call him everything but the “N” word that they can get away with without sounding overtly racist. Sorry Ted Cruz, but we’re onto you.
