It's like putting in the black guy was more important than anything he had accomplished to that date. It's now about what he has done (or in his case, hasn't), and how bad a job he is doing with failed policies in the most part. Just getting so sick of the left playing the race card anytime someone has something bad to say about this president. Please can you please think a bit more liberal and give people credit for their own intelligence and opinion and their right to come to their own conclusion and not immediately jump to the wrong conclusion. It's been either blame Bush or blame the color of his skin, get over it.
Of course there are extreme elements of society truly against the color of people's skin, just like there are extreme elements of society against hard working people making money and being successful.

just as all the rantings of the fringe right...from palin or beck to limbaugh or fox news...do not portray accurately the average (d) or, for that matter, obama and his record
by and large...the overwhelming majority of americans (especially the younger they are) have been at a point where they really do not let race, as an issue, get in the way of political decisions...
which is one of the reasons i have a problem with all this: unfortunately, there will probably always be a few who will not...and the (r)'s have been very good at attempting to appeal to these voters...all without really...um...agreeing with them...we give them space to vent...and thus a bit of legitimacy...even though we don't agree with them, all in order to secure a few measly votes

however,to be fair, i think many r's just hate obama just because he's a dem. just like they hate all dems for being dems. i can accept that, i know i didn't have too many nice things to say about gw a few years back.
chris wrote:before most get their knickers in a twist here...i'd love to pose a question. who here...can and will criticize there own side? because that shows an ability to discuss politics rationally. if think your side is right all the time...then you have no intention of "discussing" politics. it's more like you like to lecture. this is an open question for both sides.
