From Politico:

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said on Sunday the Republican presidential ticket will be sending “not-so-subtly coded messages” to white voters as the campaign continues.

“When you have a party that says coded things, that makes totally false ads up, falsely saying the president is trying to undo welfare reform, I think you’re going to see a lot of heavily and not-so-subtly coded messages from the Romney-Ryan campaign,” O’Malley said on CNN’s “State of the Union” when asked if presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney was trying to appeal to white voters.

“I think the birther comment, when you combine it with Mitt Romney’s other comments, the comments he made abroad, about the president not truly appreciating, when he was in England, the Anglo-Saxon perspective on the world, when you put it together with some of his anti-immigrant policies and the things that he has said, I think what it reveals is a sort of perspective on America that would take us back to the days of ‘Ozzie and Harriet’ rather than recognizing that we in fact a strong people because we are a diverse people,” O’Malley said.
