Once again, he needs to heed what he lectures the rest of us with. When seeing someone close to Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio, Obama threw not only a racial taunt in reference to the Hispanic senator, but also threatened violence (Politico, via Miami New Times).
Obama's trash-talking competitiveness, a trait that has defined him since his days on the court as a basketball-obsessed teenager in Hawaii, was on display one night last February, when the president spotted a woman he knew was close to Sen. Marco Rubio in a Florida hotel lobby. "Is your boy going to go for [vice president]?" the president asked her. Maybe, she replied.
"Well," he said, chuckling, according to a person who witnessed the encounter. "Tell your boy to watch it. He might get his ass kicked."
Of course, if someone had used that term toward Obama, the allegations of RAAAAACISM would be flying all over the place.
But since Marco Rubio is a Republican, Obama and any liberal Democrat can get away with racial or violent language.
