Chris Matthews "has outdone himself," writes Tony Gallardo at American Thinker. "After the State of the Union Speech, he said, 'You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour.'
"Hold on there, fellow," says Gallardo, "you're going to fast for me. My head is spinning. You are telling us he is black, but you didn't notice he is black. Exactly how does that work?"
Gallardo concludes, "By repeatedly insisting that they are post racial," liberals are "telling us they are obsessed with race."
And what a sad, unnecessary obsession. By way of contrast, not as chest-pounding but as a simple, liberating fact of life, I'll reaffirm what I wrote yesterday (on Twitter and Facebook): "Sorry, but when I watch Obama speak, I see a man, not a skin color."
