    Why is criticism of the POTUS condemned as racist by some?

    This has been an ongoing question I've both argued against and in some cases suggested is might be true. Why is criticism of the POTUS condemned as racist by some?

    Because some of the criticism really is racist. The birth certificate nonsense was a good example.

    Your poll suggests that all the criticism is treated the same way. Some people correctly point out that some of the criticisms of the president from some sources stem from racism.

    For the same reason that some people insist that Clinton was impeached because he allowed Monica Lewinsky to give him oral sex under his desk. It's repeating talking points without paying attention.

    Why be careful? Hillary was a gods-n-guns racist during the primary. I am one of the one's who will never vote for woman, she's entirely disgraced herself and the Democratic Party during her primary run. The only hope I have for 2016, is that it will be a replay of 2008 and she's get booted during the primary by .... well nearly anyone else.

    Everybody uses ad hominems because they're persuasive. They're persuasive because 99% of the population is afraid to think for themselves.

    Same reason why some tell liberals they hate America, and the same reason shy people attack the messenger instead of the message in any other case. It is just easier to do. Realize that both sides do the same thing, and race in politics right now consists of each side pointing to the other and screaming "RACIST!!!".

    Who would ever do that? He is at the top of the heap. He would be of a superior race.

    Some of the criticism towards Obama is legitimately racist. However, there are those who will pass off any criticism of Obama as racist because they are too lazy to actually counter such cricisms and/or are delusional.
