In an interview with his former campaign chief, David Axlerod, Barack Obama said it would be impossible to win over white Southern voters and maintain civil rights. The thought never entered his mind that they are simply opposed to his Muslim based ideology.
“So part of the challenge for Democrats and progressives generally is that if we cannot compete in rural areas, in rural states. If we can’t find some way to break through what is a complicated history in the South and start winning races there and winning back Southern white voters without betraying our commitment to civil rights and diversity — if we can do those things, then we can win elections.”

Better yet, why does the president continue to deny the real reason why the Democrats lost — because the American people had grown up fed up with the president’s Democrat administration and his atrocious policies — not to mention the terrible candidacy of a fatally flawed nominee?
It was not racism that drove the national debt trillions higher, that weakened border security, that embarrassed America on the international stage and that crippled the economy; it was Barack Hussein Obama who performed these feats.
