    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.


    Only black people have birth certificates?


    Wright is a racist. Obama being black has nothing to do with that.


    Obama has stated numerous times comments about whites being typically racist, etc.

    He being black has nothing to do with it. FAIL

    So, you;d agree all those that opposed GWB's policies -- including yourself -- after the 2004 election were out of place to do so.
    Correct?

    But to say this he is a socialist, and his policies are detrimental, only makes you belong with the Birthers and 9/11 truthers.
    Except that to say those things about The Obama are true, whereas the bithers and truthers are just nuts.

    I know more than a few people who use everything BUT race as an excuse to attack Obama. Before Obama was elected, these same people were not so reluctant to use derogatory terms for minorities, now they avoid doing so to hide their real reason for going negative...

    This is exactly the stupid **** that I'm talking about. YOUR opposition to Obama is OBVIOUSLY based on his race.

    Of course, that doesn't apply to more sane conservatives.

    I think he being propulsed to the Presidency was based on his race.

    Fools that substitute arguments with idiotic Hitler comparisons, the race card, and other strawmen should be ignored. Taking them seriously lowers one's intelligence.

    Actually, there's some pretty good evidence that shows the rise in domestic terrorism and the dramatic increase in militias and anti-government groups (>100) now have added race to their protestations.

    Although they arose previously in response to Democratic control of the W.H., now they have added race to the mix creating a very dangerous climate.

    The increased incidence of incendiary racial slurs being passed around via posters, emails, signs and on talk radio shows about Obama, Sotomayor, Holder who happen to be NOT liberal, but moderate Democrats adds fuel to the fire.

    The multitude of problems our country faces just gives racists another way to couch their racism, hiding behind the facade of "opposing his policies". Of course you're not racist and I'm racist to even suggest it.

    I WISH he were more liberal, it just ain't so in spite of how loud people holler.

    What a crock of sh!t!! First off, Obummer, Soto, Holder and the rest of that ilk are the most Left wing Liberal lunatics ever to disgrace the hallowed halls of Congress, the SCOTUS and the WH. Second, I personally take strong offense to your broad brush assertations. Like I said, if Obama were a solid Conservative Republican, I would definately support him!

    Please, do explain how you came to that conclusion?

    I'm a very liberal, progressive and none of that trio come close to being even "closet" liberals.

    Which part did you take offense to? Maybe consider it was meant to target a certain "group" of people who are being less then honest.
