Very good. There have been 2 black U S Senators. Both were Republicans. When will those liberal Democrats give us a black Senator? They are too busy killing each other off in their ghettos. Still waiting for the President to pay as much attention to the black ghetto dead in Chicago that he paid to Trayvon, and the white children in Connecticut. Phony President!!

Liberals are people of words, but republicans are people of action. That's why there isn't a liberal black Senator.

You must be a stroke victim. How about a liberal black president?
Republicans don't mind a black senator, as long as he's a brain dead teabagger. Care to count the number of black Republican House members?

Sorry if the truth hurts, but those little gangsters are doing more to reduce welfare costs then the Democrats ever did, ever.

It seems Obama's Senators are a bunch of white racists. Who knew? Although when I picture a white supremacist, I do picture Harry Reid. He fits right in there.

Obviously you forgot about Sen Carol Mosley Braun & Sen Obama, both from Illinios.

At least the GOP got their token black finally. I'm sure that'll get all the blacks to vote GOP in 2016.....

It must really be eating you up on the inside because I have been 100% right about everything I’ve predicted over the last 4 years:

I said that Obama would be elected in 2008: He was.
I said that he would pull our economy from the edge of total collapse and out of the Bush recession/depression: He did.
I said that Obama would get Health care Reform passed and signed into law: He did.
I said that Obama would find and kill Osama bin Laden: He did it single-handedly after changing all of Bush’s failed policies.
I said that the Supreme Court would find OBAMACARE constitutional: They did.
I said that Obama would destroy Romney in all the debates: He did.
I said that Obama would win re-election in another landslide: He did… and with a mandate to boot.

So I fully understand your frustration, but I have to admit that I am enjoying every minute of this. I would have been devastated had Obama lost to you right-wing idiots… BUT WE WON; and no matter what you say I know that it is coming from a loser who can’t debate me on anything, and who is wrong about everything. Your words mean nothing, especially since you didn’t win, you loser…

Only one thing good about this presidency is that it will eventually end. Enjoy the over $22 trillion in national debt by the time He leaves office in 2017. Oh that's right. Patricia won't be getting the bill.

Obama has divided this country. Children are losing respect for our country under Obama's caustic imprint. Winners are losers and losers are losers with Obama.
