South Carolina Congressman Bob Inglis, who was defeated in a Republican primary by a tea party candidate in spite of a 93% lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union, accuses his party of using racism and demagoguery in response to President Obama. (via Think Progress)

Inglis lists the examples: falsely claiming Obama’s health care overhaul included “death panels,” raising questions about Obama’s birthplace, calling the president a socialist, and maintaining that the Community Reinvestment Act was a major factor of the financial meltdown. “CRA,” Inglis says, “has been around for decades. How could it suddenly create this problem? You see how that has other things worked into it?” Racism? “Yes,” Inglis says.

Inglis also said that Minority Whip Eric Cantor and House Leader John Boehner need to stand up to the likes of Rush Limbaugh.
