Carter 'Racism' Claim Draws Widespread Criticism

Here we go again.

From Fox News;

Former President Jimmy Carter drew widespread criticism Wednesday for saying in an interview that Rep. Joe Wilson's "You lie!" outburst last week was "based on racism" and that an "overwhelming portion" of similar demonstrations against President Obama are rooted in bigotry.

Obama's supporters have attributed racist motives to some opponents of his health care plan for weeks, but Carter is the highest-profile person so far to push that claim.

While some anti-Obama demonstrators have been seen carrying over-the-top or racially offensive signs, administration critics say Carter is flat wrong to claim that those fringe protesters make up the bulk of Obama's detractors.

What "racial" signs? My husband and I watched the rally, what they were broadcasting anyway, and never saw a sign that had anything to do with race. We even had one of the protesters on our Radio show and he said it everyone got along, no violence, no problems. Again, President Obama cannot be criticized, ever, by anyone.
