Sweetie Pie, Obama is white or at least half white as he is biracial. But then again he always denies his white heritage to gain and pander to the black vote. BTW, I feel that he is arrogant whether he has any white in him or not (again, he is biracial). Plus I feel Obama's bigotry and bias are against the white race. Notice how he is constantly denigrating the white race like he did his grandma that he threw under the bus to protect his black pastor.
Not only has Obama not denied his white heritage, he has spoken about it in great detail.

The rest of your comments are to silly to take seriously.

<quoted text>Obama did extend the Bush tax cuts, so the 98% wouldn't have to see their taxes go up. At that time Obama was not in a strong enough position to end the tax breaks for the top 2%. That is no longer the case.
Why do liberals punish success and demonize hard work? Why not punish laziness, envy, and irresponsible behavior instead of rewarding these character flaws as if they were virtues? Why reward and enable the nonproducers of society by doling out the private property EARNED and produced by the productive and responsible? No one should be forced to subsidize the lazy irresponsible bums that fill the ranks of Obama supporters. Children understand personal responsibility and that stealing, no matter how you try to rationalize it is wrong. You are not entitled to what you have not earned. Are you? If someone does not want to "share" you have no moral right to steal the property in retribution. Redistribution of wealth, which punishes success and hard work, is stealing. The recipients of this twisted scheme have no moral or legal claim to the benefits they recieve from it. You cannot make a moral claim that something that you did not earn because you have not worked for it belongs to you because you feel entitled to it or need it. I simply cannot understand how adults can't get that.

The liberal agenda is driven by jealousy and class envy. They stoke the worst emotions in the nonproducers of society to create hate directed at those who succeed. This results in the belief that they are entitled to the fruits of the labor of others. Pure poison.

A great goal during a time of tremendous economic upheaval, right? Time for the Republicans to stop campaigning & do their jobs. Americans want Congress to get to work.
Oh you of little clarity, Obama cares less about you as this is his game.

"Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Wednesday that President Barack Obama’s administration is “absolutely” willing to go off the so-called fiscal cliff if Republicans refuse to increase taxes on the nation’s top earners.

During an interview with CNBC, Geithner was asked if the White House was willing to dive off the cliff if Republicans don’t accept a deal that raise tax rates for those making more than $250,000.

“Oh, absolutely," he responded. "Again, there's no prospect in an agreement that doesn't involve the rates going up on the top 2 percent of the wealthiest."

Geithner’s comments offer the strongest indication that Obama would accept the automatic spending cuts and tax rate increases that kick in if an agreement is not reached before the Dec. 31 deadline."

In other words, Obama gives a sh*t about you and me or other Americans. It is one big game for him and his fellow Democrats to get the Republicans. IMHO, he does not care about the damage it does to America as he is doing it for political gain. Obama is so into dirty tricks and pool that if it destroys the America he is going to let it happen as it is my way or the highway for him.

So the President persents a plan, and Harry Reid says "no" to holding a vote on it, must be afraid of another zero vote count. LOSER!

<quoted text>Where to begin, Phil.
First of all, you state that blacks voted for Obama because he is black. How about the possibility that they voted for him based on his policies? Or the fact that Bill Clinton (who according to last reports was white) got well over 90% of the black vote? Black people generally vote for Democrats because the Republican paty continues to assault, degrade, and dismiss them.
Sure, a small number of people may have voted for Obama because he is black. I took that into consideration when I voted for him, and I am white. I was never prouder of my country than when it had finally broken this stupid color barrier.
But my primary reason for voting for Obama was that I found him to be an inspiring, billiant, visionary human being who shared my goals. I suspect that many black people felt the same way. That is not racism, that is good judgement.
On your other point, what you call Obama's "arrogance" is what I call a strong backbone and a firm belief in his principles. If we go over the "fiscal cliff", it will be due to Republican intransigence. Obama wants to end the tax breaks for only the top 2%. Most of the country is with him. If you're looking for arrogance, try John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. If you're looking for mind-numbing ignorance, try the Tea Party.
I guess that you don't know the latest. OBAMA WANT TO GO OVER THE FISCAL CLIFF SO HE CAN BLAME IT ON THE REPUBLICANS.
