Barack Obama, our next President

Quit acting so stupid. It is his administration now. Did he or did he not appoint idiots to run it while he was in office?

Don't expect a retraction.

It's typical of fetchie to try and slide a lie through on a regular basis, then run from it.

The idea that Obama is a racist reads as baffling to most Americans, but it makes sense if you understand the particular racial beliefs of conservatives. If the liberal perspective on racism is that racial inequality is a genuine fact of contemporary American life—and requires race-specific remedies—then the conservative view can be expressed with a line from Chief Justice John Roberts’s opinion in Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1:“The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”
In other words, only the “colorblind” are capable of stopping racism. What’s more, the inverse is also true: if you’re not colorblind, then you are incapable of stopping racism. Which leads to a final conclusion: anyone who treats race as a social reality is a racist. The corollary to this—seen here, for example—is that accusations of racism are more troubling than actual discrimination against minorities.
Because Obama acknowledges race as a force in American life—and because he even suggests that there are racists among us—he becomes the “real racist,” a construction designed to give conservatives moral high ground, while allowing them to insult Obama. After all, for them,“racist” is the worst accusation in American life.
This rhetoric, it should be said, extends beyond the fever swamps of the right wing. In his concurrence to Fisher v. Texas, the recently decided case on racial preferences in higher education, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas likens supporters of affirmative action to slaveholders and segregationists.“Slaveholders argued that slavery was a ‘positive good’ that civilized blacks and elevated them in every dimension of life,” wrote Thomas.“Segregationists likewise defended segregation on the ground that it provided more leadership opportunities for blacks.” In this telling, the real racism is using racial preferences to account for past discrimination.
With three years (and some change) left in President Obama’s term, we will see more of this rhetoric. Until then, however, it’s worth giving a quick primer on what racism is. Racism, as The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote last year, is the “broad sympathy toward some and broader skepticism toward others.” It’s both the miasma of beliefs and assumptions about blacks and other minorities, and the policies passed in response to those beliefs and assumptions. It’s the white supremacist heritage of this country and the ways in which it continues to shape individual lives. It’s “cantaloupe calves,”“stop and frisk,” and the presumption of black criminality.
What it isn’t, by far, is a black president who talks about race, and tries—whenever possible—to talk about its role in American life.

That is really a lie. Russia's government said Obama's decision showed the U.S. is unable to develop relations with Moscow on an "equal basis." Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, played down the Kremlin's role in the Snowden controversy, describing the American's status as a situation that "hasn't been created by us."

Barack Hussein O'bama making President Putin look like the leader of the free world.

The word is "affect", not "effect", you illiterate Bocajew.

Tanning salons are low-class, low-rent places, mainly for the tattoo parlor crowd plus NYC Bocajews.

Others get their tan from the sun.

Barack Hussein O'bama is making President GW Bush look like the smartest President in recent American history. Neither Bush was dumb. But O'bama has proven he is over and over again. What goes on at the Winter Olympics--do you know? how many states in the USA---do you know? what side is the golf side--can O'bama even find the United States on a map? doubtful. But there lots of chatter, chatter, chatter...
