Good point. I have ask that question over and over and the Obamatrons can't give a good, solid answer.

Again, if he so believes in "unity" as he claims, why did attend a black, hate-filled, church for 20 years? A church that railed against whitey. Nothing about that says "unity" to any sane, thinking, adult.

You're so sour.

Obama just completed an historic primary campaign. But you refuse to recognize his accomplishment.

That's good. You're clear on something.

To me the only black and white things he brought together were his chromosomes, which then makes every mixed race person as qualified as him to become the next President.

Here's one.

Your turn - How about one from a candidate you support?

YouTube - Obama campaign rep STUMPED on legislative accomplishments
How does a black man become Democratic nominee, beating the wife of a popular former President, without any accomplishments?

I am not confused about his accomplishments! he grew up a spoiled brat drug abuser, benefited from affirmative action, got his degree from one of the most liberal colleges in the united states, and then got a senate seat which he didn't earn.

Bush fatigue, sycophant media people who don't know how to be journalists, like Olbermann, and Bill Clinton's stupid remarks throughout the campaign.
