    I find it so awkward that with all the possibilities regarding why Obama could have gotten elected president after the catastrophe that was 8 years of a Bush presidency - the one that seems most likely to people who think:

    - that the Civil War was not about slavery
    - that the reason black people feel they're being racially profiled is cause they're 'stupid'
    - that 40 years of mediocre efforts to do away with wealth discrepencies was enough to undo 300 years of slavery
    - that debating black and race relations boils down to catch phrases like 'get over it'

    AND

    - that bringing up countless examples of all the other people who've practiced slavery in who knows where does anything to strengthen their arguments,


    is because he is black. So awkward.

    ----

    I mean I honestly don't care. But the people who seem to bring up the subject of why Obama got elected are the ones constantly trying to boil the history of race relations in this country to stupid 3rd grade chit-chat. It's like the guy in the room who says 'The Civil War wasn't about slavery! It was about the rights of states to say whether or not we owned slaves in the South!' is most likely to be the one to say 'Obama got elected cause he was black!'

    this is nothing but a failed attack against obama.

    most of these things were spun by the right-wing

    however I think we should cut military spending, put it towards social programs so that the people can benefit.

    we pay for unnecessary wars while children in america go hungry and we have many living in poverty.

    Obama got elected through a massive and very succesful marketing campaign.

    Let me throw it right back in your face. Say a Mark Blackwell, a conservative Republican, was running against a lilly white male Liberal, would you vote for Blackwell?

    And what sort of defense would the US have?? Not to mention the fact that National Security (re. Military) is specifically mandated in the US Constitution, whereas Social Welfare programs are not!!

    If that's what you think, you should know the path to that started a looong time ago, probably before you were born.
