    That's unfortunate. This is why there is a major Conservative backlash underway right now!

    1) never been accepted at Harvard Law with his piss poor grades

    2) he never would have been manufactured by the chicago skunk works operation to be a politician

    3) and he never would have been president

    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!'
    I believe this is called a "strawman"? Correct me if I'm wrong, you're making quite a few generalizations here, and tossing about accusations left and right.

    Honestly, Obama is growing the stock market and is actually getting things done.

    The healthcare reform bill really wasn't that bad, it is helping others receive insurance and now those with pre-existing conditions can now obtain insurance.

    Plus, Obama has raised no taxes on the middle class like he promised. As far as I see things, he is keeping his promises and actually getting stuff done. Our economy is recovering and he is really bringing change to America.

    No longer will we be constrained by big banks that are too large to fail, no longer will people be denied medical insurance either. Isn't it a good thing now that they are off the government's check and on an insurance plan?

    Regardless, Obama has pulled no April fools jokes. He is keeping his promises, where is the joke in that? It's nice to finally have a president that's willing to put his actions where his mouth is.

    It wasn't... If you studied the history of it, you would know that.

    This is a stupid generalization, on both your part and anyone who actually thinks it.

    Anyone who thinks that is insane. By the same token, anyone who thinks we need to or could do anything to “undo 300 years of slavery” is insane.
    Nothing can ever right that wrong.
    The only thing to do is move forward and ensure it never happens again.

    I would not consider the rollercoaster ride growth. The only thing Odumbo and the rest of the Dizzy Demo-Rats are growing is government

    There are still some serious constitutional issuew with mandating coverage.

    Not yet, but he will.

    "that 40 years of mediocre efforts to do away with wealth discrepancies was enough to undo 300 years of slavery"

    Okay, so what would you propose? That the United States government take responsibility for blacks enduring 300 years of slavery?

    Jobs are finally being created and the economy is looking better. With all recovery there will be dips, but the upswing has been larger than the downswing.

    The Democrats are trying to save this country through government regulation. If we didn't allow the private banks to do their thing we wouldn't be in this crisis.

    We'll see about that
