The problem is, to many Blacks vote for him because of two reasons: He racially mixed (NOT BLACK), and the twisted idea of "freebies" would be coming to them soon!

Some wanted him to be a "Robin Hood", take from the rich, and give to the poor!

This is called "Class Envy".

Can any of you "Obamamites" tell us how much are things are better for you today?

I do think that Obama is a socialist.

LOL! There's nothing "prominent" about the president of the National Black Chamber of Commerce. Most Black people have never heard of him.
And a Black "leader" who lease no one is perhaps simply a comic mouthpiece of white corporate power, a poseur pretending to lead a community that doesn't recognize him.

As for Obama, I wish he was a socialist. Then maybe he would have pushed for single payer national health care, rather than that paltry health care package we got. At least get a public option going.

So true sir.
That is Tox news again ... maybe we've found the identity of "yop" troll.
"On Monday, a prominent member of the African American community blasted President Barack Obama's performance in the White House. The president of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, Harry C. Alford, appeared on the conservative radio program Andrea Tantaros Show and criticized Obama's poor handling of the U.S. economy.
In the March 4 interview, Alford also accused the president of using Saul Alinsky tactics to transform America into a socialist state. With a current unemployment rate at 8 percent, and 13.8 percent for blacks, Alford alleged that the president has no intention of bringing jobs to America, but rather wants the federal government to take over the lives of citizens.
"We do the sequestration; things are just out of control and chaotic. And sooner or later, someone's got to call it out," said Alford. The NBCC president served as an officer in the U.S. Army before serving in executive positions at several Fortune 500 companies such as Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson and the Sara Lee Corporation.
According to Alford, Obama got elected as the nation's first black president because African Americans, including many whites, did not use rational judgment at the voting booth regarding Barack Obama's radical past and Marxist ties in Chicago."

While him being black/mixed (your choice) might not have been much of a factor, it WAS a factor for the blacks who voted for him..Kasandra, your statement about Herman Cain being president if it was based on skin color is way off..You and many other blacks would never accept him because of the party he represents..and if people don't like BO, instead of moving, there's always impeachment..:)

There was a time, not too long ago that if you had one drop of Black blood you were considered Black at 12%. Obama is Black. He married a full bloodied Black woman. His children are Black. He thinks and acts like a Black man.
No, he wasn't simply accepted as President because he is Black. If that was the case, Herman Cain would have been president.
Obama deserves to be President because of his intelligence and strength of character. History will show in the future that things are better for all Blacks because of who he is in our struggle against racism and prejudice.
I have a hard time believing that a Black person OP-ed this bullshit thread.
If you don't like Obama, there is always Europe. So, see ya. Don't let the door hit ya, where the Good Lord split ya.
They wouldn't have such azzholes in Europe. During the so-called Republican wave of 2010 even European CONSERVATIVES were wondering if Americans hadn't lost their minds to have return those reactionaries in state elections whom they'd just booted out in 2008. Probably those reactionaries would have to live in Nepal or Saudi Arabia.

I think that many blacks adopt the socialist attitude,is because it is attributed to long , lost African culture, whereas on hunter goes out and kill game, and is expected to SHARE his kill with the entire village! Never mind the other sorry men that didn't go hunting, just "SHARE"!

Obama is a bigger threat to the nation than Al Qaeda could ever hope to be. He's never going to stop campaigning and actually do his job.

Intelligence? Strength? Yes he's got strength or else its called stubborness when he forbids people to do nothing and let Americans die.
