For the record….

The comments presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) made about his race in Union, Missouri on Wednesday–was not the first time Obama talked about his expectation that the Republicans will use race to detail his candidacy.

Last June at a Florida fund-raiser Obama–the first African American to have a viable chance of becoming president–said the GOP will go after him because he is black.

Obama said then, “The choice is clear. Most of all we can choose between hope and fear. It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy. We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”
