I can't help putting this into the context of the whole "barack obama is foreign" mantra…calumny…the Romney campaign is using. It's all about "the other." it's an oft used and ugly part of American campaigning. Code language to your base: he's not one of you. He's not American, he's other, and yes…he's black. And as LGBTQ Americans that should make us nervous too, b/c we're attacked exactly the same way…and will be more and more if this is any indicator of what Romney either believes or is willing to gin up among his base….
