memo of obama race baiting

OK. I am posting the memo Obama campaign is distributing in SC as a race baitig technique. first I have to give the context.
Obama lost NH. He immediately dispatched his campaign operatives to call it Bradley effect. Now here is an argument against it. Hillary led by double digits in polls before november last year. if obama's campaign theory is true, then all the racists decided to ell the pollsters that they were racist and were voting for hillary. then in december and early january, the racists told, NOW I have to trick the pollsters into thinkiong that I will vote for Obama but in the end I wont. So the pollsters were all suddenly tricked. tey all started believing that those 10% of racists were going to vote for obama. on election day, racist NH voters told themselves, gee I am a racist. I cant vote for obama. so let me vote for hillary since I am a racist. give me a BREAK. is this how elections work?
Now dismantling the racial innuendos and race baiting methods after NH loss. the obama campaign came out and warned clinton campaign and america openly they they would get rough and engage hillary campaign into "chicago style politics". clinton campaign was cought offhand when they saw jesse jackson jr. coming out and making this statement on CNN as a classic race baiting technique.
Now obama is distributing this memo in SC> why is he not distributing it in NV? or FL? its for voters and pundits to decide. but here is the memo.

now its upto potential bloggers and voters to decide whats going on here. I will end the post with what hillary said when she was on abc today.
"Well, I think its regrettable because both of these accusations are baseless and divisive and any fair reading of what both of us said would be clear and I think it's regrettable that these are being in a way used to try to divide people in our country during this election and I'm not going to have any part of it," Clinton told ABC News. "I personally find it offensive."
"You know," she continued, "I was inspired by Dr. King when I was a young girl. I considered him one of my heroes, a global symbol, an icon of everything that is the best about America and he worked his entire life to make the changes that we enjoy today so I hope that this kind of unfortunate political activity really just ceases because I don't think this is what we want this election to be about."
that is absolutely right. lets stop this presidential race being about obama's being african american. I request obama campaign to stop this race baiting. it hurts them in long run.
