    First of all, it's the white middle class worker losing his or her job.

    Secondly, Foxnews' demographic is white people. And I don't hear MSNBC seriously contempating "outrage" regarding Obama talking to students about staying in school.

    Thirdly, he's losing numbers in ALL demographics. He's lost TEN points in approval rating according to Rasmussen since his 100th day.

    If he lost 9% of white democrats, that's better than his total numbers. Basically what I am saying, is how does "white" play into any of these numbers.

    And why must you keep telling me how high unemployment is. How the hell is that Obama's fault. A lot of people are working that would not have had the opportunity thanks to than stimulus plan you hate so much.

    In my own state (WI) $500m has been pumped into our schools to save teachers' jobs. FBO.gov currently shows more than 3,600 recovery jobs currently looking for work.

    Insurance groups are cutting jobs as are banks, manufacturers, automakers, and even profitable corporations looking to bank more profit in an opportune time. How is Obama to blame for the economy.

    Blame him for the indoctrination of our youth.
    Blame him for turning the US into Soviet Russia.
    Blame him for being a baby killer.
    Blame him for being a Muslim.
    Blame him for being a non-citizen.
    Blame him for being a crooked Chicago politician.
    Blame him for being an "elitist."
    Blame him for being soft on terrorists.

    Just please DON'T blame him for an economic mess he inherited and is doing his best at fixing. He passed the stimulus. In roughly the same amount of dollars that Bush passed. We didn't see ANY of Bush's stimulus money unless you were on a corporate board.

    Obama's economic plan has been passed. The money is being spent. There is nothing you can do about it. Quit whining about it, and help make it work.

    You want wasted money? Many of the people I am talking to on this very site are wasting thier bosses money, spending time on here while on the clock. Who the hell can possibly say they are "hard working" Americans who "earn" their money when they have 10k+ posts, most of which are posted 9-5 Mon-Fri.
    and so it goes...

    Yeah, we learned that the first six years of the Bush Administration. (Democrats are at fault too, and the Clinton administration as well, so don't even bother)

    If we are going to break it down according to race, the White vote is still needed in a big way. Blacks and Latinos are a small portion of the country.

    Blacks: 13%
    Latinos: 15%
    Whites: 80%

    The overlap is due to the fact that the census does not have a separate category for Latino, only "Non-Hispanic [Whites or African American]", or "Hispanic [Whites or African American]."

    United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Also, Obama is losing ground in all major demographics, including Blacks and Latinos. In the month of August alone, he lost 10 points in Black support (from 86% to 96%), and 10 points in Latino support (from 77% to 67%). He has kept White support relatively well, falling only 4 points (47% to 43%).

    Gee...I never saw the prof as a racist. Until now.

    I guess someone should welcome him to the far-right white pride fold.

    But I think they'll find he's more trouble than he's worth.

    It seems to be what some on the far right latently desire when they are accusing a good portion of the population as being unAmerican un patriotic etc.

    You're right, just like there are some on the far Left that want to see the same thing. Both are wrong.

    They would have demonstrations if the man put the toilet paper role on the holder wrong.... You know, it doesn't fold over the front but rather hangs in the back. They would be like... He's a commie pinko socialist fascist who causes all people who have diarrhea to have diarrhea! Oh yeah, and constipation too! And the medicines for these issues are also government owned and tampered with so don't take them! That would be socialism and and....
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    You might want to edit this also...

    Blacks: 13%
    Latinos: 15%
    Whites: 80%
    = 108% (or is this extra 8% the illegal alien vote?)
