On June 9 at the official opening of Obama campaign’s new headquarters in Atlanta, Rep. John Lewis, obviously referring to the Tea Party, smeared his opponents in Washington and all over the country as wanting to “take us back”, noting they’ve “come too far” and that some of them “gave a little blood on that bridge”.

Watch below:

The inference is that the white Tea Party wants to take voting rights away from blacks and it’s no surprise to hear Lewis use this kind of race-based hyperbolic rhetoric as we’ve documented it over and over. But given that it was at an official Obama Campaign event, I’d like to know if President Obama believes that the Tea Party is trying to suppress or take voting rights away from blacks. After all, if this were a Romney campaign event and one of his surrogates began saying Obama was born in Kenya, he would be forced to repudiate it by the press.
