    I think you have it backwards.

    This half-black man was not ready for the Presidency.

    Yes really..... based more like those on Bing, Google, MSN, and all those other links all talking about the same thing and reporting the same thing they did back in 2008. All coming up with the same interpretation and meaning.

    Despite all the different wording and terminology.....and despite your self alleged opinion.

    Race is irrelevant - either they have good policies and work for the betterment of ALL people in the country or they do not. Green, Black, White, Blue... color matters not at all.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I think it really is as simple as this: If we weren't ready for a black President than we would have never elected one... TWICE!

    What possible reason could you have for even asking this question? Do you imagine that anything he has or hasn't done was because he's half black?

    I would have to say it was his re-election that showed that. Anybody can make a mistake, even a country in an election, but he was re-elected showing the majority of the public approved of him and what he was doing.

    So if a whole lot of people think something, it must be true then?

    Seriously, you are not doing well here. I would advise you actually watch the video so you know what she said(hint: she mentions demographic groups she has support in, that is all she does), then stop and think if a whole lot of people are saying she said something she did not, does that change her actual words.(hint: it doesn't). See, here I am, discussing what she actually said, and the only way you have found to argue otherwise is to show that other people are saying she said something else. Except we have an exact record of what she did say, and what she said it in reference to. No amount of opinion pieces, blogs, and people on social media is going to change her actual words, no matter how much you might like to with they could.

    Yeah it does.....It pointed out exactly what she said. Using the term White.....Twice. With the meaning that all others got but you didn't, and then why they reported it as to what.....her words were all about.

    All back in 2008. That's the reality.....whether you like it or not.

    Spot on in many respects.
    Despite what he may have campaigned on, His real "reign" (teehee) is as just another massively pro corporate authoritarian, but one who has "liberal" social views. From his adoption of the Heritage fix to health care, to his extension of tax cuts, ..... he could probably say that breathing in air is good for you and the GOP would in reflex commit suicide.

    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.

    ahahah an interesting list you chose there.
    seems to be missing a key demographic from the world's constituency.
    i'll also disagree on the "for years" part, but I'd like an explanation on the prior point first.
