This is pathetic but it is also was expected. They think Obama is being graded on his record at a higher standard from white voters because he is black. With this false rhetoric you can get a idea of what is going to happen when this election heats up and Obama is unable to run on his record having delt with the economy. Obama was given a pass and not vetted in 08 because of the mindsets the MSNBC hosts have.

"[Obama] now has a specific record of governing," MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry said today on her show. "A record that, I contend, because of his race will be held to a much higher standard than it would have been for a white incumbent.
Alex Wagner, host of MSNBC's NOW, agreed. "I think race absolutely has to do with the conversation about reelection," she said.
Harris-Perry opened her segment with the cogent observation that Obama "this time around, President Obama really is a black guy running for president."
