Most Americans are not racists, & more voters voted for Obama then voted for McCain.
The question is aimed at the opposition to Obama & yes, I feel that tghe core of it is indeed race based. Oh, the far right racists will find 10 million reasons they will CLAIM why they don't like Obama: His economic policies, his use of diplomcy, his HC reform ideas...etc
These, IMO are just dodges & as Senator DeMint honestly said, the right wants to "Break" Obama & I believe it is mainly racists thinking.
Is it possible to not be a racist & dislike Obama's policies? ...Of course!
Do I think that is most often the case with anti Obama people? Not on your life. I think it is mainly racist.
