Gore did not win, that was proven. Gore is Nashville's Laughing Stock. He was in the paper for having the highest electric bill in all of Nashville. Noone used as much energy as him. He was not even mentioned in the state capital building. When we brought him up, the tour guide said not that cry baby.

In a word, yes. They don't even teach basic logic in schools anymore.

Nope, but he's never been presented as such, has he? No aura, mystique or "coolness" factor, I'm afraid. Just a candidate with much pertinent experience. Rational people don't need to "feel a tingle" from politicans to support their candidacies.

So many people voting for BHO not because they agree with his message (if he even has one), but to "make history" by putting a black man in office for the first time... and as it turns out, we already did that 80 years ago.

Republican "Warren G" Harding was actually our first black president in 1920. This is not invoking the "one drop" rule and claiming he had a black ancestor centuries earlier. The man's great-grandmother was black. When you consider that Barack Hussein Obama is just as white as he is black, I don't see why it would be that much bigger of a deal to elect him than it was to elect Harding.

Maybe it's time for idiots like Ludacris and MOD CUT Winfrey to start paying attention to the issues on which Mr. Obama is obviously clueless instead of trying to make history that has already been made.
And obama's mother qualified for DAR and so do his daughter's and he does for SAR ( read his ancestry on any good website; try NEHGS)... he is half white. He doesn't admit it unless it is beneficial

I think there are plenty of other idiots closer at hand.

Was Warren Harding treated as a black man as he was raised? Did the general public think of him as a black man? Did his opponents make it an issue in his campaigns?

You know what you can do with your asinine claim.

The amount of Blacks who have white in them is astounding--to them--and they won't acknowledge it b'c of their extreme hatred for Whites. These Blacks are self-loathing. So, I suppose that the amount of Whites with Black in them is very high as well. Not quite as high as the reverse, but high, so I wouldn't be a bit surprised if this were true. In fact, I've wondered about it myself as I've met many people who claim their Black heritage, although, you couldn't tell by looking at them if you looked at them all day. I couldn't care less about the color of someone's skin. I just don't want to hear the woe-is-me no one likes me b'c my skin is [fill in the blank] bit anymore.

well you know what WHO CARES who is black or white. This thread suggests people are voting because he is black in him. Not me, I like him and his politics. I could care less what color.
Lets talk about the so called white alternative ...
sarah..5 babys, and a pregnant unwed mother for a daughter...
mccain on his second wife after cheating on the first with her, wife who steals pills from her own charity.. man no thanks, talk about some stereotypes being reversed..lol.
