    He's playing to many different constituencies and this is the kind of result you get, crap.

    So the person I could think of, would be one who actually cares about solving problems, rather than one who wants to buy people off.
    Still looking for this mythical person.
    Daniels said he wouldn't run (even after a few months, it still hurts).

They want a everything rich and corporation teaparty administration.
    Anyone that believes that corporations and the rich dont manipulate and can be vicious and uncaring about it...imho is quite naive and blinded

    Low approval - No. Obama was black in 2008, when the voters elected him in the first place. To the extent that it has any discernible negative impact on his approval rating, it's always been factored in anyway. It's not like this is a new phenomenon.

    Investors - No. This economic slump (and the upcoming sequel to the 2008 financial crisis) is global. And many of the countries that are ruled by the same familiar white faces are in a much worse situation vis-a-vis the United States.

    Here are some ideas I have floating around in my head:

    Do investors (the majority of which are no African American) not trust the president because he is seen as being an African American?
    Are people nervous because this is the first time a non-Caucasian has been president?
    How much do you think the presidents race effects things?

    Does Obama's race effect low approval and/or investors' timid buying behaviors?
    I don't think Obama's race affects his low approval anymore than I thought Bush's Southern accent and trust fund baby life affected his low approval ratings. I think, at this point, people evaluate their approval of a president based on his policies. Racial, regional, economic, gender and other biases play a part in the intensity with which they criticize him, not in the presence of criticism itself.

    That's all I got.

    Let's also keep in mind that the stock market seems to be completely out of touch with the state of the American economy...and Obama's approval ratings.

    The Stock Market has regained much of its horrible losses since the mortgage crisis, and yet GDP has NOT recovered and the unemployment rate stays ridiculously high. Clearly, the Dow Jones and the American economy are totally unrelated.

    If you are retarded then his race might effect effect your low approval of him and/or investors' timid buying behaviors. There are legitimate reasons to disprove of Obama or be timid of investing and race is not one of them.

    Those trying to blame his low approval rating or timid buying behaviors on Obama race are nothing more than race parasites. Who are these race parasites. Who are these race parasites? They are the race baiters who try to bring race into every discussion for example Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson who feed off the color of their own skin to try to remain famous and relevant.The other race parasites are the racists themselves who are just as bad are the baiters who also worry such insignificant things as race.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
