    What does color have to do with anything.
    I'd consider voting for Condi Rice. Or Powell. Long before I thought about Hermann Cain or Benjamin Carson.

    I've met Cain and I think a lot of him. Carson could be my doctor and he's a bright guy. Doesn't make him presidential material.

    Is it just as bad to like/support a President because he's black as it is bad to dislike/not support a President because he's black?
    Before president obama was first elected there was an op-ed in the huffington post urging voters to vote for Obama because he was black. I thought it was ****ed up and just as racist as not voting for him because of his skin color. That was my first and last experience with huff post, I avoid them like the plague if possible.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    I couldn't care what color the President was or is. If they are doing their job and leading his country in it's best interest (for the country, not pandering for votes) then they could be plaid for all I care.

    Unfortunately, from the moment he said 'fundamentally change America' my vote wasn't going in his basket.

    Of course you are partisan.

    You made it all about "liberals".

    I would hope that one's racial bias wouldn't be a factor. Judge the President based on the merits - his ability to lead, his agenda, his achievements, his actions or inactions - not because of the color of his skin.

    So if one doesn't love something or someone, it naturally follows that hate is the only other option.

    Re: Loving/hating a black President

    Unfortunately, more people voted for him because he was black than people who voted against him because he was.

    It's basically the only explanation for voting for a man that was a United States Senator for about 37 minutes. I don't think it was a coincidence that he was black. McCain's resume made Obama's look like a fry cook.

    I don't consider race to be a factor, but that's also due to high intelligence - something many Democrats cannot boast about. Lot of Republicans too, but that's immaterial here.

    What do you weirdoes mean by 'race'? I find the whole concept totally baffling.

    And?

    I correctly pointed out that liberal policy depends entirely on the demographics.

    What does that have to do with partisanship?
