This is not only for those in our community who consider themselves Republican but for those who are Democrat, Libertarian and everything in between; What do you dislike about Obama.

Here's what I see:

- Came into a shit-storm of a situation, economy wrecked and in two wars.

- He made decisions that can be criticized and should be however, the economy is on the mend.

- He has ended one war and is ending another one.

- He has restored the reputation of this country in the eyes of much of the rest of the world.

- He killed Osama.

- He created health care reform that will benefit millions (not perfect by any means, but a step in the right direction for sure)

- He ended DADT

He has disappointed us in many ways as well but all in all I think he has done well considering not only the circumstances he came into, but also the hostile and overtly racist government he has to deal with.

What are your thoughts on this? What do you dislike about Obama?

And if her WERE black enough to satisfy your high standards, what would his "deep cultural structures" consist of exactly?

again black is a skin color, not a race or culture...

but I do understand what you are implying...he'd first of all create policy that doesn't alienate Nature. But he can't do that because the power is with the European culture and if he could I'd doubt if he's know that from his father's cultural perspective, it would be the thing to do if he wanted a strong and fair America.

But that's over you head because you too are European..

He is absolutely black - to racists.  And that's who we're talking about here.  The white mother doesn't make one bit of difference.

Patricia, unless they're immigrants, I seriously doubt that there are any racially pure people in this country, despite what some might say.

I don't know why you think I wouldn't know that - can't see it in my comment, or why it matters here.  I'm not trying to be a smart-aleck - just want to understand the point.

not only racist..people who have been educated in the European world view.  It's just that some are more "understanding."  

Please define "European world view"

Isn't Michelle Harvard educated?  Quite a few blacks are.  But I understand your general point.

More than likely but so what?  I often wondered if Michelle didn't pick Obama because he was a "black white man"..her education dictates that she has the European spirit of power for control over others

She didn't pick him - he picked her.  He pursued her relentlessly.

I'm sick and tired of that bull shit racist card. People need to get their heads out of hes perfectly bleached ass and realize most people dont care about his color. and to choose a president based on color is completely irresponsible. And racist.

Actually that is not true. Where I work most people cant give me a reason why they dislike obama. When I point out that it most likely is because he is black. They give me a look that speaks louder than words. I have been hearing comments on how "We will not have another black man as president in the white house" and "He is the president but not the president of the south" and the list goes on and on. I live in VA in a part of town that is not very racist. I cant even imagine how worse worse it gets in SC, NC, TN etc. and the Midwest. His race is a big issue for a lot of people, even people that voted for him in the past. They did not voted for McCain because he was too reckless
