    I don't like him and it has nothing to do with his race.



    Maybe personal responsibility will take hold.
    I don't have to assume much,,,they don't use the N word much anymore, but the inflection they use when using the word "blacks" tells a lot....and the derogatory things said about blacks in conversation tells even more.
    Granted, this may not be a large percentage of whites, but there are plenty still who would just as soon provide one way tickets to Africa....

    Not sure what you mean about personal responsibility...are you suggesting that there are no cases where government shouldn't assist?

    There are a lot of kids out there with disabililties that they were born with, and no insurance company is going to provide for them the rest of their lives.

    What does this have to do with the majority of opposition to Obama being racist?

    That is what private charity's are for. The Federal Government is not in place to take care of the medical or retirement needs of the nation.

    Good luck with that notion. The government starting taking over that responsibility during the great depression when private charities were overwhelmed. There is no going back....and no amount of wishful thinking about it will change that.

    My feelings about that particular issue are irrelevant to the thread anyway.

    This still does not explain why you think most of the opposition to Obama is racist based on anecdotal evidence that does not apply or represent the majority of the opposition.

    Who can tell what people really think? Not me, nor you...just telling what I see in my neck of the woods, and you would think the western states would be better about the races than the deep south where I grew up. I think the majority of us are past racism, but I also think that a substantial number of us are not...

    I agree, but this has no bearing at all on the majority of opposition to Obama being racist, or caused by racism.

    I agree with this as well but again it has nothing to do with the opposition to Obama being because of racism. Even the White House is not willing to say such.

    Again no evidence exist to support such a claim. It ranks right up with birthers and 9/11 conspiracy's.

    Strangely enough those 'other posters' happen to be liberals.

    What would they know about the people who are in opposition to Obama other than onezies and twozies they happen to work with, or their 97 year old great grandma, who has probably disliked the negro all her life.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: Do you believe that opposition to Obama is mostly based on his race

    All this poll shows is that we have at least 17 people who are capable of pointing and clicking, but can't comprehend the world around them. I have met three people who are opposed to Obama based on his race. I have met thousands of people who are opposed to Obama's policies, but not because of his race. I also live in the deep south, so I live and work around a lot of racists.

    I don't know if I should feel sorrow, pity or disgust for those who voted 'Yes' in this poll. Opposition to Obama is clearly not based on race and the fact that it is the liberal loons who are bringing race up is the ultimate irony in all of this. We've seen Devil divert, divert and divert some more. He has no facts to support his belief, but we are to take it that he is right? I don't think so. I like to look at the facts before I reach a credible conclusion. Since there are no facts or statistics to support his claim (just his feelings), how can anyone believe for a nanosecond that he is actually right?

    I am adamantly opposed to nearly every one of Obama's policies. It has absolutely nothing to do with his race. It has everything to do with how horrible his policies are. Many are starting to wake up to this which is why you see his poll numbers dipping and what once was a majority support for Obamacare is now the minority. I don't look at Obama as a black President, I look at him as the President. The color of his skin bears no weight when I judge his character or his policies, and I know that I am not alone. Anyone who believes that the main point of opposition to Obama is his skin color is clearly not in touch with the world around them.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    and how about the people who send the derogatory emails out? do you think they do that because they LIKE Obama? I get at least 4 or 5 a week, from people who think they are christians. People like that know how to keep a low profile with their racism....it is a learned talent.
