(:57) • Daily Caller (8/13/2012) MSNBC host: Paul Ryan quoting Thomas Jefferson a 'lovely thing' for 'a wealthy white man'.  

On MSNBC's "Hardball" on Saturday, weekend morning host Melissa Harris-Perry expressed her displeasure with the selection of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney's running mate.  In particular, Harris-Perry took issue with Ryan quoting Thomas Jefferson's line in the Declaration of Independence, in which he declared rights come from God and nature and not from government.

"The thing I really have against him is actually how he and Gov. Romney have misused the Declaration of Independence," she said. "I'm deeply irritated by their notion that the 'pursuit of happiness' means money for the richest and that we extricate the capacity of ordinary people to pursue happiness. When they say 'God and nature give us our rights, not government,' that is a lovely thing to say as a wealthy white man."

Harris-Perry said the words didn't initially mean rights for African-Americans and women.

"When you sit in a body like mine as an African-American woman, you know that God and nature have in fact made us — inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," she continued. "But we could not have them until there was a Civil War that allowed the federal government to impose those nature and God-given rights would actually be respected by our government. And I think that they cannot continue to go down this line on the Declaration of Independence."

// "I would never have even paid attention to it but for the fact that campaigns nowadays are waiting for any kind of little nugget to create an atmosphere of more and more discord," Cleaver said. "It makes absolutely no sense that some kind of a little throwaway line is now being used to make Vice President Biden appear to have been throwing out these words in order to somehow attract dumb African Americans who if they hear the words chains are going to automatically vote for him and President Obama."

O'Brien said Cleaver was "extrapolating" with the "dumb African Americans" description, and continued: "You cannot tell me that if in fact we were talking about Mitt Romney saying a line like that…that people would not be going crazy and crying about race-baiting and talking about tone and tenor and coded language. I think we would, wouldn't we?"

Cleaver said he wasn't "sure" about that, and that any such remark would depend on the context.


On Thursday, the panel of MSNBC's "The Cycle" dissected Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's claim that President Obama should "take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago." Though many would simply write this off as standard campaign rhetoric, co-host Touré argued that Romney was using "deep stereotypes" about black people, calling the comments the "ni**erization" of Obama.

"That really bothered me," he said. "You notice he said anger twice. He's really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the 'otherization,' he's not like us."

"I know it's a heavy thing, I don't say it lightly, but this is 'ni**erization,'"Touré continued, shocking his co-panelists. "You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we've been trained to fear." //
