Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution

The Democrats are settling on one major election strategy: Portray opposition to President Obama as a form of racism. In a nutshell, the liberal argument is that conservative dissent from Mr. Obama's social democratic agenda - Obamacare, the nearly $1 trillion stimulus and Dodd-Frank - is driven not by the color of the president's politics, but the color of his skin.
Presidential campaigns are notorious for unleashing scurrilous rhetoric. Only George Washington was elected as an uncontroversial reflection of the nation's will. Then we got political parties, and it was downhill after that.
liberal writer Lee Siegel argues that Mr. Romney has a secret weapon in a general election campaign: his race.
In short, Mr. Siegel is essentially saying a vote for Mr. Romney is a manifestation of racism - a desire by white America to reassert itself.
