    Any choice works, but I picked black because......it works.

    I must say I expected to see descriptive choices like... competent/incompetent, likeable, devious, honest, etc. "Color" me shocked at the actual choices.

    Okay, my answer is "black", because that's how Obama describes himself and it would be disrespectful not to honor his choice.

    I think that he is likable and has a great sense of humor but can also be quite arrogant at times and does not like to be criticized. I also think he is hung up on the celebrity lifestyle and that he REALLY enjoys the hobnobbing with them during his fundraising activities and things.

    As far as his presidency is concerned, he believes a lot of things that I don't agree with. I honestly can't say whether or not he is incompetent because I don't know if anyone could fix some of the messes we are in now. However, he IS completely inexperienced. I think a more experienced person with a business background who would make the cuts needed and raise the taxes needed would be a much more effective leader during these difficult economic times.

    EDIT: Sorry, I couldn't just pick black or white. This should be more in depth about what we like and don't like about him IMO.

    For those who don't know, his father was Black and his mother was White.

    On the way home from Starbucks I was listening to conservative talk show host Michael Berry; he said President Obama was half white, do you agree?
    For those that think racism is a thing of the past, nothing shouts "racist" louder than someone obsessed with such a nuance.

    The real measure of this would be if Obama boarded a bus in Savannah in 1964, would it be ok if he sat in the front, was remanded to the back or would they be happy if he merely sat halfway back... (we all know the answer to this question)....and we know this Michael Berry guy is a racist of the highest order, keeping racism is alive and well in the 21st century.

    President Obama is a cactus!

    I would describe him as a war criminal. His skin color is not important.

    Race-baiting for sure. Which is Tiger Woods, black or Asian? Only matters to someone who's got their own reasons to keep score.
    Out of all the misfits in society- psychopaths, pedophiles, serial rapists and killers, whatever,- none is as detrimental to our community as racists and bigots. If there's a next step in human evolution it can't happen as long as there's racists and bigots among us.

    Re: How would you describe President Obama?

    Well...lets see...the black side of his parentage abandoned him, and he has abandoned his white side in favor of the more politically advantage black side...so...obviously he must be black. But thats not how I would describe him. I would use his own words to describe him. Blind, incompetent, uninformed, uninvolved, pathetic excuse of a leader, embarrassingly disengaged, and irresponsible.

    Well, some people apparently still believe that Lenin was not a mushroom:
