    He failed to use the proper code words. He made his meaning very clear and left no room for plausible denial.

    Food stamp president? Nothing racist about that.

    Lazy inner city males? Nothing racist about that.

    Young buck standing in grocery line using food stamps? It could have been a white buck. No, really.

    Would they be happier as slaves? Ouch. Not really any way to spin that. Now they have to go to full blown rejection. Not often that you can find a Gooper willing to denounce a racist statement but Bundy left them no wiggle room. I bet they're feeling very uncomfortable about now what with having their racism laid out so explicitly.
