My fellow conservatives:
For the love of Pete, do not criticize the “cadence” or “accent” of the newly released Obama video.
Go bananas on the content. Please. He says some absolutely ridiculous and inflammatory things in that video. There’s plenty there to work with.
But lay off of the style stuff. Be quietly amused by it, if you must, but shut the hell up in public.
“Code switching” is a well-documented political phenomenon. Congress-critters from all places have more pronounced local accents when they go back to their districts. Heck, I myself speak differently depending on what sorts of folk I’ve been around lately.
It happens, and it has nothing to do with the content of one’s speech.
Stick to content. To do otherwise is to play into the liberal narrative.
