I dont know...I dont buy it. If he wasnt a 'clean well spoken black man' he would have no less credentials to run for president than many on this blog.
    well, he did hold other political offices briefly. he's well educated and genuinly intelligent.

    what exactly are the requirements you think he doesnt have that say, carter or eisenhower did have?

    Re: The Tea Party Is.....

    Ummmm, he served as a Senator for 18 months, and voted "present" the majority of the time....

    He was a "Community Organizer".....meaning no real job....

    He never said ONE real thing during his campaign...the man is a zero.

    Carter was a governor and a military leader. Ike was a military leader. Obama was elected as a state rep were he did nothing and a senator where he did nothing. Im not knocking him personally. But other than the fact that he gave good speeches written by other people, he would as Bill Clinton put it, still be getting us coffee.

In the last 100 years, there have been a grand total of 6 black Republicans. Until three months ago, there were none, and even now, there are only two.

    Actions speak for them.
    Sorry read through what I originally posted, what you are doing is a causation = correlation mistake. I'm not saying that every individual that associates themselves as tea partier's are not racist but as a whole the organization only asks for fiscal responsibility. How is that racist, the tea party does not discriminate against black people, black people just do not agree with their policies as a whole. So if they as a group are non discriminatory and their policies are non discriminatory, how are they racist?

    I like a lot of what they stand for. But their organization seems to bring out more crazies than the Republicans and Democrats combined.

    carter was a humdrum governor and a crappy military leader. Ike was a stellar leader in the military, which helps, but doesn't necessarily qualify one for President. He had no political training which is akin to the new justice being appointed with no experience as a judge.

    I'm no great fan of President Obama, VM, but his expierience was just as good as a great many that have served. His knowledge of law, at a minimum, is probably greater than most.

    It's where the really mad people go.

    My oldest brother and his wife are like leaders of it. They're about the most normal people I know but he loves talking to his little brother about consevative stuff. And he has nothing against liberals. He says they're the grandparents and cosrvatives are the parents.
