The Obama Presidency is proof that the country wasn't ready for an underqualified community organizer who was elected because of a rock star image instead of any legitimate leadership, economic, or foreign policy expertise.
This country is and has been ready for a black, Indian, Hispanic, Asian, female, Jewish, gay, or atheist President for years. Obama isn't a failure because of his skin color, and his skin color isn't what caused him to fail.

You people can say what you want, BUT EVEN HILLARY CLINTON TRIED TO CAPITALIZE ON OBAMA'S RACE! THAT'S HOW BAD IT IS!!!
ROFLMAO @ Hillary Clinton!!!! Man, this country is something else!!!!!

Not the majority of them.....but that's not to say BO and his supporters wouldn't use the same tactic from the opposite end. Which is always demonstrated now, after 6 years of failed policy where the Big Boys play. On the World Stage where it matters most.
The people got what they wanted.....now its nothing but buyer's remorse for the majority.
The Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases. Obama took the side of a vicious attempted cop killer, rather than supporting the brave officer who had to fight him off (Mike Brown case). Can't make this sh*$ up.
Anyway, I think cases like that Obama should have not played the race card (which he did INdirectly). Also, him associating with Al Sharpton in ANY way is like a white President associating with the KKK. He needs to cut that out.
But other than these issues Obama brought on himself, his skin color is irrelevant to actual policies. I think a black President would be more progressive than a white President, which a lot of people would want. I don't really care, myself. I really just base my vote on the resume.
For instance, I will not be voting for an elitist, lying, 1%er with offshore bank accounts- Hillary Clinton. Her horrible Sec. of State bid sealed that deal. But she might win soley because of the voters who want a WOMAN in the White House. Not someone qualified.
Anyways, my point being, I think Obama was certainly voted in because of race rather than resume. Heck, he barely had a political career. IS THERE ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT THOUGH? No, I think it's okay to try something new and take a chance. However, this time it failed us.
That doesn't mean we can't have another black president though
