Eric Boehlert On Talking Liberally: Right-Wing Media Haven't Come To Grips With Fact That We Elected A Black President


Media Matters' Eric Boehlert noted that in the course of two days, conservative media figures suggested President Obama is leading the 2012 presidential race because he's black while other conservative media figures suggested that "there's no way that Obama can win because he's acting black."

Boehlert explained: "This is a cornerstone" of segments of the right-wing media. "They have not come to grips that Obama won in a landslide and frankly, that he's an African American president."
