Matthews: Minorities Didn't Vote For Romney Because of Ethnic Dog Whistles

Posted: Dec 07, 2012 7:53 AM

Chis Matthews' obsession with race hasn't come to an end even though the country just re-elected President Obama to a second term. On his show last night Matthews claimed minorities didn't vote for Mitt Romney because they didn't like the "ethnic dog whistles" used throughout the campaign against Obama. Matthews played a clip of Newt Gingrich correctly stating President Obama is the most effective food stamp president in history. Today, there are a record number of people on food stamps, 47 million, and that number has ballooned since Obama took office in 2009. Not to mention, Gingrich has pointed out repeatedly that there are more white people on food stamps than black, so Matthews is the only person sounding that "minority dog whistle."
