No-no-no, the bigoted racist ignorant right-wingers need to cling onto the delusion that Obama is some kind of foreigner who illegally got into the White House… otherwise they would have to deal with the fact that they can’t get “their country back” because ‘We the People’ no longer are just Whites with a superiority complex.
It is so great to see Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream evolve into the first African American President, whose very existence drives these tea—baggers more insane.

LOL, now the bigots are an authority on the inner-thinking of Dr. Martin Luther King… wasn’t too long ago when these same people were all against King getting a holiday, and still steadfast against celebrating it. President Obama won the White House twice… King’s dream has been surpassed 100 fold…
It just eats away at you doesn’t it? LOL!
Blacks 1 (actually 1/2); Whites 43 [Presidents].

It doesn't take much to get you excited, eh?

Must be a pretty exciting 'dream' for you? <perhaps a 'wet' one?> <<LOL>>

Ask your local Imam about queer Muslim men. But don't have your dingleberry exposed, they like to keep their perversion on the down low. Just like your Preezy.

The only ones who are suffering are those who cannot find work.

The only color that matters in THIS COUNTRY is GREEN!!!

Those who are still waiting for those 'shovel-ready' jobs are the ones who are suffering the MOST.

They would get those 'shovel ready jobs' if the republicans in the house would stop trying to repeal Obamacare and vote on the presidents jobs bill. They're afraid that the jobs bill will be another success for President Obama.

Might surprise your racist azz to learn that Conservatives/Republicans/Tea Partiers have no problem with a Black President. They DO have a problem with a SOCIALIST one who HAPPENS go be Black.

Mom of Murdered Obama Gay Lover Speaks Up
Breaking => Mother Of Obama’s Murdered Gay Partner Speaks Up ~ All 3 Homosexual Members Of Obama’s Trinity Church Murdered Within 6 Weeks.

Mom of Murdered Obama Gay Lover Speaks Up
Fellowship of the Minds
In late May, Wash. DC-based investigative journalist Wayne Madsen had a bombshell revelation about Obama’s membership in a Chicago gay club, Man’s Country. Madsen also reported on Obama’s sexual relationships with other men, including named D.C. politicians and Donald Young, the openly-gay choir-director of the church in Chicago of which Obama was a member for some 20 years — Jeremy Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ black liberation theology.
Obama’s relationship with Young was confirmed by Larry Sinclair, who claims to have had two sex-cocaine trysts with Obama.
There were two other openly gay men in Wright’s church: Larry Bland and Nate Spencer. In late 2007, as Obama began his ascent to be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, in a span of 1½ months, all three men “conveniently” died:
No surprises here.... I have family in Chicago and they heard the rumors,....and THEY'RE White. It WASN'T a well kept secret.... Until Obama had political ambitions.

Wow!! You win the prize. That is by far, and hands down, the stupidest post that I have read here. You have my vote for president of the tea party. Did you write that fairy tale yourself? Pretty funny. The photoshop wasn't that good though.
Have you read Wayne Madsen's bio on Wiki? What's the word that I'm looking for? Loser! Total loser!
Larry Sinclair? Are you crazy. This criminal can't even get a job in prison where he should be.

This is epic BS. Yes, you and your brothers Wayne and Larry will need Obamacare to cure your mental defects. Good luck.

I just laugh at your ignorant stupidity because you’re so frustrated that a Black guy is President of the United States and am wallowing in your misery. Keep the racist comments coming so that I can keep laughing and everyone can see exactly what you are… THANKS!

Lie on pookie, everyone knows about Reid not letting the Houses jobs bills come for a vote. They would pass, jobs would explode, but that's not Obama's plan. He wants distraction and destruction.

I guess you forgot that Hillary Klanton wanted to be the first white female president. The Repubs chose Sarah Palin only because she was a female. Romney did not want Condeleeza Rice as VP, because it would have paved the way for her being the 1st female and black female president.
She would be a good one.

Do you really, really think that no one likes him because he's Blk? It's because he's stupid!!!!I have so many Blk freinds but they are smart. Skin color doesn't matter-only to someone racist like you who can't believe a person is judged by their character not skin color. Keep on thinking like 50 yrs ago. No one really cares.
