This is, of course, laughable. There is a laundry list of people in the "tea party" and political right community who have made racially offensive comments and images about President Obama. A simple search of text and images on Google or Bing will show this definitively.It has nothing to do with him being black-it has to do with his being wrong.
On the flip side, Ive heard people say they specifically voted for Obama because he's black-I find that quite racist.
I will assume you are not among them.
There are MANY people who oppose Obama BECAUSE he is black. Only a fool would deny that.
As for people who voted FOR him because of his race, no doubt it occurred. How would you look yourself in the mirror if you had fought for civil rights all your life , and then the first viable black presidential candidate comes along and you turn away.
Obama is an HISTORIC president. It is a hard swallow for a lot of right wingers who wished the day would never come, but it came.
Even the blame game he and his supporters try (Bush!!!!!) is a tacit admitting that he has failed.
We agree he's historic-I think he's historically bad.
Talk about conspiracy theories...
We have gone from "Obama will fix everything" to "It's Bush's fault", "enemies" to blaming all his screw ups on a cabal of "Tea Partiers"..
I guess Sarah plain gets the last laugh after all....
Well, she should, she is five or six times smarter than Obama...
Damn that Tea Party is powerful. I thought the Obamameme was they were dead.
