    How does me pointing out your trolling, race baiting post make me a troll? Do you not know what that word means?

    I think some voted for Obama because of his race and I think some didn't vote for him because of his race. The two cancel each other out in my opinion.

    I think he was largely elected because America wanted to send a loud message that we were tired of rightwing, warmongering, corporate special interests guiding our nation. I think he was elected the second time, because America still remembers what voting for a GOP president will get us.

    The collective memory of the American voter is short. But I STILL think there are enough voters with a hard-on for GOP presidential candidates to assure that we will be safe from them for another presidential election cycle, or two. Maybe. But make no mistake, the political pendulum will again swing to favor the GOP presidential nominee. And, make no mistake, they will stick it up our ass again. The question is, when?

    The GOP does GREAT during mid-term elections. But presidential elections, not so much. There are more democrat voters than republican voters. And there are even MORE independents. Independents don't like all that extremo righty stuff. The GOP is gonna have to come off of that if they hope to have any future in presidential elections. It's the independents who decide.

It was both sad and halarious at the same time. THey are still losing thier **** now and many of the same people are losing thier **** over equal rights for gays.

    anyway so again, it actually proved that AMERICA is read but we still have work to do because there are still many people (squeaky wheels, media whores etc) that do have a serious problem with race . . . but they dont reflect the majority of america
    wow I really gotta stop multitasking, treating my posts like text messages and focus more lol thats horrendous.

    lets try that again . . . . .

    Now that aside, what it did do along the lines of race . . . .to the people that ALREADY had a problem with race (all colors) . . . .it set them on fire, made them lose thier **** and go off the deep end.
    It was both sad and hilarious at the same time. They are still losing thier **** right now and many of the same people are losing thier **** over equal rights for gays also.

    So again, it actually proved that AMERICA is read but we still have work to do because there are many people (squeaky wheels, media whores etc) that do have a serious problem with race . . . but they dont reflect the majority of america.

    America in general has never been better with race relations, its only the loons that are hyper active.

    Well, the actual word I wanted to use to describe you would surely cost me points. I'm just playing it safe.

    Agree on the first election, but he won number two based on lies.

    Are you trying to tell me that politicians don't tell the truth? Say it ain't so!

    He won election number 2 because more American voters voted for him.

I think many people voted for him because he was black, but I don't think it was decisive in either 2008 or 2012.
    and proof that the superior candidate is not necessarily qualified for the job.

    Wait...you presume the progressives and liberals dont like him because of SOME of his practices (but they arent 'racist') but dont think conservatives might see things in his actions, behaviors, attitudes and positions? You dont think HE intentionally antagonizes his political opponents?

    Bull****.

    They all fool us. And you are right, candidates are a product of savvy PR firms and strategists. No one is actually "gualified," to be a president. That is the kind of job that only "on the job training," will qualify anybody. And, at least as far as I am concerned, Obama has performed as well, and even better than most before him, in my generation.
