    No, but I do believe that it's a feather in the cap for some of those who don't like him. Some use racial slurs, innuendos, whatever against him (and his wife) in an attempt to get under the skin of those who do support him.

    I do think that there are some who despise him because of his skin color. My neighbor is one.


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

I mean some may like him because he's not doing as bad as Bush; but that's like saying a movie is better than Ultraviolet. Sure, it can be true, but it doesn't actually give any information about the system. Better than Ultraviolet can still be a really ****ty movie. Better than Bush can still be a really ****ty President; and on the absolute scale Obama is doing a bad job.

    Angry because his health care bill sucks, yes. Because he is black?

    Don't start playing the race card now.

    I love it that we can see who voted for what position. The lone "America is racist" voter is...frickin hilarious.

    No, I do not believe it is based upon race. Obama is Arrogant. Obama is far out of the mainstream. He is not a leader type and more like a Boss type who demands obedience. Much of his childhood was in Kenya and after that he spent most of his time with the left fringe so he doesn't have the acculturation to understand what America is about really. Most of the far left understand somewhat at least what Mainstream America is about, they just want to change it. Obama doesn't have a clue; he believes the rhetoric that the opposition is being disingenuous in it's opposition to his programs.

    No, I'm sure there are a lot of people who genuinely disagree with his policies. I believe many Republicans would oppose universal health care or bank bailouts or climate change legislation even if it was Hillary Clinton or John Edwards or any other Democrat sitting in the White House.

    However, I'm afraid there ARE also a lot of people who oppose Obama because of his race. I'm referring to the people who question his birth certificate, the people who tie him to Jeremiah Wright, those who honestly believe he "hates white folks and white culture" (as Glenn Beck recently claimed), etc.

    "Mostly"? No. A substantial part? Absolutely.

    I would wager that >95% of the people who oppose Obama would oppose a white Democratic president with the same policies.

    The fact that he's black might shape the way in which some people express their opposition (birth cert nonsense/secret muslim v. whitewater rapist/murdered vince foster), but it would be there either way.

    It is of course a convenient way for supporters to write off opposition as "just a bunch of racists." We're seeing the same thing with the criticism of anyone who opposes the proposed health care bills as being a tool of the industries or part of astroturf organizations.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
