Aside from his own racially-insensitive joke about President Obama, for Mike Turner to once again accuse Tennessee voters for not embracing the President's failed economic policies because of racism is nothing short of outrageous.
Tennesseans overwhelmingly reject this President based solely on his failed policies that have led us to more spending, higher debt, and 23 million Americans still struggling to find work. Saying that Tennesseans' objection to the President is because of racism is a slap in the face to the integrity and morality of voters, and Mike Turner should be ashamed.
Update: Democratic Party spokesman Brandon Puttbrese responds—"Mike Turner has a long history of fighting for all Tennessee families. He has a solid record of renouncing intolerance and bigotry. If Chairman Devaney wants to hear apologies — he should start with his own sorry caucus which spends its time bullying select groups of Tennesseans and finding new ways to drive up unemployment and punish working families."
