    Does Obama's race effect low approval and/or investors' timid buying behaviors?

    Do you think that our current president's (of the U.S.) approval ratings dropping to record lows and that our economic recession is at all related to the fact that our president is viewed as an African American?

    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?

    Are colloquialisms the only thing you have to offer? What do you think? Is it possible that Obama caused unrest in investors by being non-Caucasian?

    So how is this race warfare again?

    No, it's not his race at all.
    It's his inability to get a firm grip on the situation at hand.

    Just my opinion of course.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Just to play the devil's advocate ..

    Do you know anyone who you think could be doing a better job as a president given the craptastic governmental system he inherited?

    Warren Harding.


    or, frankly, any of the post-war administrations that were handed off a market crash. thus far, this is the worst management of a recovery yet.

    No, not at all. Whatever “unrest” you are trying to blame on racism, he caused, not by his ethnicity, but by pursuing idiotic policies that have had a disastrous effect in the nation and on the economy. These policies would have been equally idiotic and equally disastrous if he had been Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, Martian, or whatever. Ethnicity has nothing the least bit to do with it. Racism has nothing the least bit to do with it. His policies have everything to do with it.

    I am a liberal democract, and I do not believe that Obama's low-rating has anything to do with his race.

    the economy is in bad shape, we have a huge debt, and there doesn't appear to be any easy solution.

    the buck stops with the President, and he happens to be black.

    It's not really a specific answer to your question but more of my personal observation.
    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.

    Re: Does Obama's race effect low approval and/or investors' timid buying behaviors?

    I believe it has more to do with the rich and powerful making one of their power moves, then pure race...I believe corporations and the rich are purposely inflicting pain by purposely not hiring and keeping the misery level up so they can control the rhetoric and the election in 2012. 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
