Did the conservative pundits have any influence on your initial perception of Obama? Middle name is Hussein so that can't be a good sign. Goes to a black nationalist church so must have the same affinity for white people as Louis Farrakhan. His closest friends are terrorists. The man cannot stand America but loves the Islamic Middle East and all of its dictators. Is no friend Israel of Israel. Blah, blah, blah. Did any of that have an affect on your opinion of him?
Interestingly, once elected he goes on to practically wipe Al Qaeda off the map. Appointed a Jew as Chief of Staff who volunteered in the Israeli Civil Air Patrol when Saddam was shoot off Scud missiles at Tel Aviv. Has more whites and fewer blacks in his cabinet than Bush. Key in role in the overthrow of Gaddafi. I digress, sorry.
