Certainly not a "white" America looking for a conservative "black" great hope, just all of America (no matter of color) looking for a great hope (whatever color). I would take the boss of a pizza joint many times over a community agitator who has allegiance only to irresponsible welfare seekers any day. Maybe that's just because I value work and being productive and responsible for my own destiny and actions.
Yes, he might be older than you are, but obviously much more intelligent and responsible. Unworkable ideas?? Excuse me?! He made himself a potential candidate for potus, and what have you done?(c'mon, we're all waiting for your answer). Forget the potus part, look at his professional accomplishments. Name one accomplishment for BO - oh, he agitates the drug users, welfare queens, pregnant teens, etc. in chicago for votes. Meanwhile he was raised all of his life in a privaledged life, with no kinship to slaves or even blacks.
You are making exactly the same errors in judgment as Cain and others by making sweeping generalizations about blacks. In addition, anyone who is familar with Obama's childhood knows that his father deserted the family when he was 2. His childhood was not desperately poor, but it wasn't "privileged" either.
His mother's second husband was an Indonesian, and he lived abroad from the ages of 6 to 10. He saw his biological father only one time after the father deserted them, and that was when he was 10.
It was an unhappy occasion, and he never saw him again. The stability of his childhood was in large part due to his maternal grandparents. Cain grew up in a 2-parent family, which struggled economically, with the father working more than one job. I for one don't judge either man by the circumstances of their upbringings because they had no control over them. As for "accomplishments," each man has different ones--Cain as a businessman and Obama as a Harvard Law Professor and then in politics. Cain is nearly 16 years older, with at least one defeat for political office behind him, while Obama has been in politics in one form or another since his 30's. The issue comes down to ideology, and I firmly reject Cain's which happens to be the rigid, anti-people one that the GOP currently embraces.

You kiddin me?? No, we're not generalizing about blacks here, since Obama surely is NOT black. He didn't have a privileged upbringing, but went to Harvard? Whoa, what a laugh. No he was certainly not desparately poor by any stretch of the imagination (extremely far from it). Not nearly as underprivileged as Herman Cain's family. The big difference is Cain's family taught him personal responsibility and the work ethic. That is something people of today, maybe those such as yourself, reject in favor of being dependent on the fruits of those who are responsible and self-sufficient.

Cain is anti-people?? Seriously, Anne, you are grabbing at straws in this debate. What in the world would bring a statement like that on? I guess one could say BO is anti-people, since he wants to remove traditional American principles and replace them with principles of socialism. And the world has seen what that does to "people". Cain embraces the traditional American work ethic and the philosphy of personal accountability, while BO promotes the fruits of living on welfare and inequitable "spread the wealth" propaganda in order to gain votes. Are you just plain blind?

Your "anti-people" blurb places you in a kindergarten level. Please grow up, at least just a little?

Let's see, Cain wants people to stop demanding the govt take care of them and become responsible for themselves. Hmmm, yep, must be anti-people. Since he proved himself, it makes perfect sense his path and his ideas are bad, right? Thanks, Anne, for setting us straight.

Well, well,well!! If it isn't the trained parrot who can't utter any word but racism, regardless of the fact that it almost never applies when you do use it. Cain shares the same ideology with the likes of Bachmann, Perry, Gingrich, and the other GOP candidates, all of whom are white. So, what you are saying makes absolutely no sense when you accuse me and other blacks of rejecting Cain's ideology because of racism. I love how people on this forum are supporting him in spite of the fact that he was the one who brought up race in the first place. He definitely said those blacks who vote vote for Democrats are "brainwashed," which is nothing but a direct insult. It made no sense when he made the remark, and it makes even less sense because he wants our votes. Then, he has the absolute audacity to say the president has had no part of the black experience. The stupidity of that remark lies in the fact that blacks in this country have various experiences. In this country, it is easy to find any two blacks who have little in common besides their race. There is NO one-size-fits-all "black experience," and he needs to quit harping on the nonsense of "authentic blackness" that he imagines he possesses in relation to the president. He's obviously trying to have it both ways by insisting on one hand that race doesn't matter but on the other hand making remarks that show he IS trying to be the black Republican answer to the president. If he had actually talked to blacks who vote for Democrats to determine why instead of talking down to us, he would have had a lot more credibility. And given the record of the GOP in 2011, it does no good to cite the good they did in the past, because they have diverged from that path.

Blacks have de- evolved in direct correlation to their subservience to the surrendercrat party. Income, life expectancy, education... you name it. The poverty pimps like jackson and sharpton have enriched themselves keeping blacks dumb and unemployed.

Haha! Gee, after years and years of you racist leftists attacking all conservative blacks as "not authentic", now you're whining when the same charge is thrown back at one of yours.

Sorry if my holding your racism up for examination irritates you, but, really, you put out a lot of windy verbiage that is easily summed up in a few words: you're a racist.

So, how do you explain the fact that there are well-to-do, middle class, and working class blacks who receive no "handouts," yet still vote for Democrats? If you don't know by now, then the track record of the GOP for the last 30 years explains it all. Many if not most of us reject a party that callously blocks unemployment benefits for those down on their luck, tries to use anti-abortion as a wedge issue while making it more difficult for women to obtain the very services that reduce the demand for abortion; would willingly "balance the budget" by cutting critical services like education and job training; and tries to scapegoat unions for the economic problems in this country. Yet, they have no problems with endless, expensive wars or giving even more tax cuts to folks who are doing extremely well without them. BTW, this rejection of the GOP is not confined to us blacks, either. Contrary to your patronizing and insulting remarks about us, we have more than enough sense to reject something that we have no use for.

Yes, you ARE sorry, but not for the reason you say you are. And you have proven your stupidity by including me among those who label blacks who vote differently from me as not being "authentic blacks." I disagree with Cain strongly, and have only contempt for him because he's too dumb to keep from talking down to fellow blacks whose votes he wants. But I don't buy the idea that one black is more "authentic" than another, including Cain. If you want to jump on someone for saying another is not "authentically black," Herman Cain is a good one to start with. For someone who says race doesn't matter, he brings it up all the time especially in relation to the president.

I'm talking about the majority.

Look at the statistics.

I met a sociologist from Iceland who referred to it as the "scourge of the American black." I corrected him. I said it's because we give them all this free stuff, which translates into "you can't compete with us, so here's 10 pts on the exam." Every successful black person should be asking themselves did they earn their success, or did I get it from affirmative blaction.

It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. In that era, almost all black Americans were Republicans. Why? From its founding in 1854 as the anti-slavery party until today, the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks. And as one pundit so succinctly stated, the Democrat Party is as it always has been, the party of the four S's: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism.

The character Simon Legree in Harriet Beecher Stowe's book "Uncle Toms Cabin" was the black hat, he was the back stabber who informed on others trying to escape to freedom, keeping them in servitude as slaves. Uncle Tom on the other hand was the hero, giving advice and helping others escape to freedom.

Most here are Simon Legree's busy attacking the Uncle Toms, the heroes, Clarence Thomas and Herman Cain.

P.S. Anne; Obama was never a law professor, let alone a Harvard law professor. He did guest speak at Chicago university law school a few times and was not well received as such.

The Republicans of 2011 are a different breed from the ones of the past who promoted civil rights. Since there are also Democrats who have been instrumental in doing so, as well as people from both parties who tried to hinder it, you need another talking point. Besides, the ones of the past who were instrumental showed signs of progressiveness in other areas, which would cause them to be labeled RINO's today. While it's true that in the past, most blacks were Republicans, the exodus from that party didn't occur in a vacuum. There were racist Democrats, AKA Dixiecrats, who bolted from the party to become Republicans. Then the GOP has also adopted the Southern Strategy which exacerbated existing divisions between blacks and whites who are poor and working class, for political gain. The record of 2011's GOP greatly overshadows whatever Republicans did in the past. They are about an ideology that benefits no one except the wealthy, and they are colorblind in that respect because their policies hurt many whites and other non-blacks as well.

Frankly, I couldn't care less whether you apologize or not. When I said you were sorry, I meant sorry as in worthless. You do nothing but call names and make completely unfounded assumptions about people you obviously disagree with. Some of your assumptions are so absurd that they don't even deserve the dignity of denial. If you think that insults or citing the good the GOP did in the past, in spite of their present record, amounts to reasons to vote for them, you are sadly mistaken.

To use the term “dependent liberal agenda” is yet another sign of political stupidity. If a liberal believes that healthcare should not be a for-profit business and that to live or die should not be a luxury sold to the highest bidder doesn’t not mean DEPENDENT, it mean they want things to be FAIR.
If a Democrat believes that rich people should be responsible for paying the same tax rate as those that are not rich, does not mean DEPENDENT, it means they want things to be FAIR!
And if you even waste my time with the stupid right-wing argument that 47% don’t pay federal taxes, I will slap you in your face with the question you aren’t educated enough to answer…….WHY NOT?

Herman Cain shifts the entire tax burden onto those who make less than 50K a year. He increases taxes by 27 percent on the working poor and middle class, and he ends social security and medicare. The party of taxed enough already now supports huge, huge tax increases on themselves because they are not evaluating the 999 plan like the economists are. It is a nine percent value added tax on every item you buy, a new nine percent national sales tax on top of your state sales tax. It lowers payroll taxes a couple of points but ends SS and Medicare, then his Chilean model takes 20 percent of your income to pay into a private pension plan to make up for the loss of social secuity. The idiot tea party supports anything, anyone who is a Repub, anyone who is flip and who lashes out at people. Cain lied that his economist was Rich Lowery. The press went and found Rich Lowery. He is a bank employee, not an economist. Cain lied on national television and did not think the media would go and find his "economist." This guy is insane is what he is. It comes out that him and Lowery got the 999 plan from a computer video game called SimCity. He does all of this and just thinks no one will check, no one will ever find out??? Who is that nuts?? He didn't think the economists would crunch the numbers on 999??? This guy is a total mental case. And here is the idiot tea party cheering on a 27 percent tax hike, cheering on the entire tax burden going onto them, cheering on a NEW tax, cheering on value added tax and national sales tax and they can't even figure it out they need those kind of taxes to fund social security and Medicare otherwise those programs will be ended. They would let this guy shove these new taxes onto them to lower and lower taxes on the corporations and the rich and let him end SS and Medicare, not use the new taxes to fund SS and Medicare. The tea party cannot think, it should NOT be voting.

So to break it down, you prefer long-winded, bombastic "civilized" insults over short, succinct earthy insults. Got it.

If anyone is arguing for the sake of arguing, it's you and your pals. You just keep repeating the same angry, thinly disguised racism straight from the leftist playbook.
