    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
    I would vote for Allen West or Condi Rice in a heartbeat, as would 99% of conservatives (especially if it was Condi).

    What defines truth is that it ISN'T subjective. If it's subjective, then it's an opinion and not truth.

He's more conservative than Bush and had implicitly adopted many Bush policies. Still, the political right hates him. I can only come to one conclusion as to why; Race.
    Actually, I think the only reason is the "D." If he were an "R" they'd be falling all over themselves to praise him.

    I don't particularly like Obama. I didn't vote for him in the last election (voted for Jill Stein - Green Party) Among other things, he's a liar and corporate tool. However, the reasons I dislike Obama are diametric to why the political right (GOP, TP, religious extremists, etc) dislikes him for. I am not loyal to the duopoly.

    Really? You base that on what? One person's opinion on the internets?
