Okay, Iíll Say It. Why Is Obama President? Because Heís Black.

Political Correctness Run Amok

This is an issue that constantly comes up in conversation lately, particularly when people express their puzzlement that Obama’s “likeability” polls so high coming into the election. “How can his policies be so bad, yet people still seem to like him so much?”, I constantly hear.

Well, the question they should be asking is how such an incompetent perpetual-campaigner and golf-pro-wannabe ever got elected to that office in the first place. And as far as I’m concerned, the answer is very simple: because he’s black. Or half-black, to be exact.

Let’s face it. If a white guy named Barry O’Malley had put his hat in the ring with a resume that included zero private-sector experience, zero state-level executive experience, and only two years of experience in federal office, he’d have been laughed out of the primary. Yet that’s exactly what Barry Obama did, and he got away with it.

His entire 2008 campaign consisted of shameless sloganeering devoid of actual policy proposals: he was the “not Bush” guy; “Hope and Change”; “Yes, we can!” and “Si, se puedes!”; “Transform America”; and pretty much nothing else.

How did such abysmal vapidity succeed in propelling this empty suit to the White House, you ask? Because for far, far too many voters this was the opportunity to show how enlightened we’d become. We’re actually going to elect a Black Man as President! Aren’t we just oh so sophisticated and open-minded! What a great country!

And why do the polls even now show Obama having such high personal popularity? In my estimation based on human nature, for the exact same reason. When polled, many people are hesitant – at the least – to express a negative view of the amateur in the White House for fear of being thought of as “racist”.

And they may well have good cause. In an administration that was supposed to put “racism” to rest, we’ve reached the point at which any criticism of Obama’s policies is automatically “RAAAACIST!!!” Far from removing racism as an issue, it’s been amplified beyond all sanity.

Of course, the reason for this is because Obama’s policies have been so disastrous for the country that he can’t possibly run on his record and hope for re-election, so he and his supporters have to stifle any policy criticisms at any and all costs.

Let’s hope they don’t get away with it this time. Let’s send this nimrod back to the driving range, where he belongs.

Democrats are the real racists. They think the most important characteristic of individuals is their complexion. Obama is the naked emperor whose followers keep telling him how beautiful his clothes are.

2016 goes into this.

Obama is a ‘bargaining’ black leader: Prove you aren’t a racist by voting for me.

Basically, he’s an Affirmative Action President elected for what he symbolizes more than any actual qualifications or competence.

But we can ill afford to give four years much less eight to an unqualified anti-American would-be leader.

Obama’s Presidency is a failed experiment. He’s set back the possibility of a qualified “person of color” from becoming President for two decades...at least.

OMG I’m blind. I didn’t realize he was black. I hated him because he is a marxist. (By the way. What is black?)

Yep! White guilt and misguided black solidarity.

And the right kind of black, we might add.
Not too dark, not too threatening, speaking standard English,
wearing his hair short, and the crotch of the pants above the knees.

There is absolutely no question that the only reason he got elected was because he is black.

A white (or asian) guy with the same credentials wouldn’t have made it out of Iowa.

A white Republican with the same credentials would not have been shown one percent of the respect afforded to this amazingly unqualified Democrat candidate for the senate seat held by Jim Demint.

I think a lot of the white guilt that existed in 2008 has evaporated. Not saying that means they will all vote for the other guy, but it may mean that it’s one less voter for the First Anus.

They want you think it’s because he is black. It’s because he like Bill and Hill are so morally shallow and corrupt is the real reason.

Hand it to the guy—He is a great snake oil salesman—2008 he told the people what they wanted to hear and they bought it hook line and sinker. He proved worst that most political times. No one with half a brain should vote for him now. I think no one should be president unless they have been a Governor of a state first. Handle a state—and run it well—and then I will think about giving you my vote.

It’s the only thing keeping him afloat in light of his clear failure to do the #1 thing: revive the economy.

If he was John F Kerry or John McCain, he’s be roadkill in the polls and among the most hated men in America. Legions would be waiting breathlessly to vote him out.
