    So that includes everyone in power on the right just as much as it includes Obama.

    So it's not "Obama".

    It's Washington.

    They are ALL guilty.
    Just because all are guilty doesn't take away from Obama's own words and actions......moreover both sides of the Aisle criticized him on his Speeches with Race. So it is Obvious he is not innocent by any means. Also he is the Leader of a Political party. So he has his blame.

    Myself, I don't care if people think he is or isn't.

    On Thursday, President Barack Obama signed an executive order creating the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans which will be implemented by the Department of Education.

    An excerpt from the order places a goal on "increasing college access and success for African American students and providing support to help ensure that a greater percentage of African Americans complete college and contribute to the goal of having America again lead the world in the proportion of adults who are college graduates by 2020, in part through strategies to strengthen the capacity of institutions of higher education that serve large numbers of African American students, including community colleges, HBCUs, Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs), and other institutions," (Sec. 2, subsec. VII).

    Of course, Obama was not talking about "every child," but only black children.

    Of course, there exists in this country a tremendous double-standard in regards to who is given a pass to preach and practice racism. However, we cannot be intimidated by left-wing Congressmen, nor by an illegitimate press which works for them. We must confront their dishonest claims with the truth.

    This man who has come out of nowhere and is now the President of the United States appears to be a racist, and he must be identified as such.

    Can you imagine the furor that would erupt over a 'White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for White Americans?'.....snip~

    Here was one Specific despite the Gallup material I put up.....did you still need more material as to Obama being the Most Divisive President in modern Day History.
    Now if only there were some notable difference between white and black people in our nation's history. Some difference that...set them apart somehow.

    Oh well, I'm sure it'll come to me later.

    I do agree that he should be pushing for the reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall act, but there seems to be bizarrely little drive for this.

    Why? Is there something notable in their history I should be aware of?

    What's dividing the nation is the extreme positions people are taking on the issues, not one leader. But that is probably more reflective in Politics and the Media than reality. As a matter of fact when they typically question John Q. Public in walk by's they don't even know who the vice president is. Even many partisans are only extreme on one or two issues like Abortion, SSM, Guns, Illegals, ME, Deficit Reduction/Entitlement Reform, etc. The bottom line is we all want reasonable solutions that everyone can abide by it's the definition of fair that our emotional egos keep getting distorted.

    Why would I be too good for them.....how did I get thrown up into the mix, Progressive?

    IS that how All you Libs think.....that when talking with others that for some odd reason you throw up a some type of judgment upon another. That this makes your discussion.....What? Did you have a hope that it somehow validates what you are saying or questioning?

    Did you think that you would put someone on the defensive or something by going off on a tangent and trying to make some innuendo or attempting to make a comparison?

    The One piece did talk about Asians and why there was no Initiative for them. Like some others too. I guess if it was all about fairness and equality it would be that way for all.....huh?

    How is borrowing 100% of federal "discretionary" spending reasonable? If it is worth doing then it is also worth actually paying for it, for the most part. To simply assert that all federal spending is really just "investment", and thus worthy of financing on credit, is simply insane. Obama proposes a 2014 "budget" that spends more than in 2013, yet tells us that is a reduction in federal spending; if that is not ego, then what is?.
