Shame On the Congressional Black Caucus for Continuing the Blame Game

Congressman Andre Carson, where’s your proof?

Carson, a Democratic congressman from Indiana and the legislative “whip” for the Congressional Black Caucus, recently made incendiary accusations about the Tea Party movement and his colleagues supporting it on Capitol Hill. Those remarks appear to lack even a scintilla of truth.

Carson’s comments are likely to only further stoke the fires of racial politics and generate unrest in a manner that Barack Obama promised to end with his election in 2008.

Instead, as liberal politicians such as Obama and Carson continue losing appeal and support when offered the tea party movement’s alternative platform of smaller government, fiscal responsibility and liberty, the race card is being played against the tea party with increasingly regularity and vigor.
