This is why Obama can't win. RACISM. People don't want an intelligent black man to run the country who will have an excellent cabinet to advise him. They would rather have someone who barely got out of college, and bushes cabinet. Well, america is already second class, let's go for third world now.

My point is what the truth is - that he is not AA like any other real black person.
Call him a mutt, mixed, whatever - but we cannot, honestly, say he is AA and deny half of his background.
That is unfair and some could even say racist.
How dare you call him a mutt, and tell me what the hell is a real black person????? I dont think he is denying his other half, the fact of the matter is Sen. Barack Obama does look Black so his whole life he probably got treated like a Black man you would not know he is half white by looking at him, It is a shame that in 2008 people are still hung up on someones skin color, I would vote for Sen Barack Obama if he were GREEN!!! He is truley the man to be the President of the United States of AMerica, and I hope American will put the color issue aside and listen to Sen Barack Obama, he truly cares about this country and the people and I dont know why anyone would want the job escpialley after 8 years of Bush, because it will not be a easy job, Obama is the man!!!OBAMA/BIDEN 2008

Really? In a society of free speech and racial parity, burning an effigy should be considered either right or wrong outside the context of race or religion. There are many occasions where I have been flipping between news channels and seen images of protesters in the street burning an effigy of George Bush or Sheriff Joe Arpaio, but some of you people obviously think that Barak OBama is somehow off limits.
When Bill Clinton visited India back in 2000, protesters burned his effigy and chanted "Death to Bill Clinton!". Why; because he's America?
Also in India, angry crowds in cities across the country burned an effigy of Richard Gere after he kissed a popular Bollywood actress on the cheek at an AIDS-awareness event. Bollywood actresses get kissed in film, but if it's an American white guy doing the kissing, then I guess that's somehow diffferent. Does this make Indians racist?
Seriously folks, can we at least try to come up with a hard and fast rule regarding the burning of effigies; something not rooted in race, religion, or politics, something that we can apply across the board consistently without exclusions?

Quality of leadership huh? Yeah the area in Chicago where he was an activist looks just great! Kinda like a third world country, he really lead them! What a joke. This has nothing to do with race and everything to do with him not helping or doing anything for me in Illinois during his term...You make fun of McCain's age, well, I think it's a joke to have this young inexperienced do nothing senator with radical ties to be out leader. Bush was bad I agree, but Chicago style politics on a national level will bring this country to it's knees. Look at our state and the financial problems we are having, look at our city...Totally democratic run. Tax and spend liberals will hurt this country bad.

Calling out racism already? Obama could be PURPLE and he is only half black, so please stop with the BS racism card.

If Obama doesn't win it will be primarily because he is WRONG on so many important issues. Wrong on energy, wrong on socialism, wrong on national security, wrong on health care, wrong on __________

Just an FYI - the only reason race/color/creed was ever and is ever brought up is because, ironically, those that are not white, are always bringing it up.

The irony!

Obama has no experience and radical ties. He is the number 2 recipient of MILLIONS from Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac. His Chicago Democrat Machine Politics, tax and spend liberalism, will bring our country to its knees.

He could be polka-dot - he is wrong on so many things. A good and charming talker, but an empty suit. And I take it back, he is only a good talker when he is in front of a teleprompter.

Did you watch his Saddleback Church event?

My mother (a humble and deeply spiritual woman) has said that Satan could not have picked better accomplices than people who claim to be followers of Christ but who act wickedly. She was speaking of the Christian Fundamentalist Republicans who embrace divisive and hateful and violent political positions in the name of Christ. We shall know them by their fruit.

There is a CLEAR national media's blatant bias against Governor Palin by the liberal Media. Even CNN is reporting that Joe Biden has much more experience then Governor Palin, However they fail to mention before Barack Obama was in the senate he was a community organizer. I say Mccain has a lot more experience then Obama.
