Why is it that wealthy people can hide behind their religious/political affiliations and be completely racist, but if a poor person says the word "black" they're called a racist bastard? Yeah, it's okay for a doctor/lawyer/politician/etc to call himself a "tea party radical" or "right wing republican" and say that he only hates our President because of his social reforms, when the real reason that person hates Obama is because he's a black man. I'm not black, don't draw any government assistance, and pay all my taxes, and I see nothing wrong with what Obama is doing. He's trying more than our president to actually help our country, rather than drive us more in dept. People are so quick to forget what it was like 8 years ago. I won't forget. Fear of a draft, record low approval ratings, recession, housing market crash, gas rising every day, cost of living rising every day, fear of government invading our privacy, fear of terrorist attacks, stock market falling every day. Yep, I want that all back. Please, bring back all those great things we came to love. Obama is the black devil.

You don't read the papers do you? What you describe is happening now, not 8 years ago.

Bahahaha!!! Yeah we weren't 16 trillion in debt 4 yrs ago much less 8. Obama has added more debt than any other president in history. On top of that he has done nothing with unemployment rates. And made us more dependant on forgein energy. What Planet have you been on? Seems that's the way his supporters hide his failures, "your racist". Unbelievable!!!!

True...I started to reply to your posts with reason why our President's policies are not popular with conservatives but it really is no use. You are simply uninformed. If you cannot see the socialist agenda of the current administration and staggering debt we have incurred in the last 4 yrs, then you are either incapable of understanding where we are headed or you desire the government to play a huge role in your life. Race plays NO ROLE in it. If a white President had forced the Affordable Care Act down the american people's throats it would be just as horrible a law.

You are sadly wrong. It's just all black people vote for him because all they can see is, "look, a chance for the first black president to have another term." While everyone against Obama is saying, "This is a chance to keep the MUSLIM president from getting another term." The election is over. It does not matter now anyway. Who cares if he is black? We need to keep the terrorists across seas and not invite them into the white house. This guy is destroying our country from the inside out.

It just shows how stupid the citizens of our country are. Bush dragged us through the mud just to get revenge for his father against Saddam. The entire country then turns around and votes for him again.

We all lost and if you can't see that, you are truly blind. Either way we were getting a bad egg. It will always be this way more than likely until we get rid of the 2 party, you can only be rich to win system.
