Over 90% of Blacks voted for Obama. Therefore, it is clear that Blacks voted along racial lines. The color of your skin does not determine whether you are racist or not. Statements by Obama's Reverend Wright were racist in character. Obama stated in his biography that he sought to purge himself of his white heritage. His statement leaves me ambivalent.

Obama is a remarkable man and his accomplishment was no mean feat. However, he is still very far to the left. We will have to wait until history shows us where truly he stands, and whether he does well for our country. His first act in filling his cabinet was to fill it with a man known for extreme political partisanship. This despite his promise to govern from center and reach across the aisle.

When Democrats are the minority, they push for collaboration and scream partisanship whenever they do not get their way. When they have the overwhelming majority, it becomes a tyranny of the majority. you have only to look at Guam's recent history for this.

Two years ago, the Republicans brought up the issue of Freddie and Fannie Mac being in trouble. Frank Barney and Nancy Pelosi railed against the Republicans for being alarmists, and then in an about face railed against them for not acting sooner. Career politicians are mostly an unsavory, duplicitous lot. There are very few true statesmen or stateswomen.

Once again, time will tell.

We are all racists if you think about it.
Use of the word has become politically incorrect, but we are all racist, if we would just admit it.
I don't see how that is a bad thing.

Just come down south and you'll see what racist is.
I've never in my life seem a more racist bunch of rednecks.

I am very familiar with the southern states, I have family living in Georgia.
Let me tell you this if you've never had much experience living down south.
The blacks "know their place" and how to act down there.
