Yeah, a descendant of Africans wanting to be black and identifying as such is really racist.

He is half white. Now you could say, what if Obama were colorless? Colorless, as many whites consider themselves to be.

Absolute poppycock. The US Census doesn't identify anyone by one race unless they want to be. You can claim all races available if you wish.

The rest of this gibberish doesn't even merit a response.

Obama is half white and half black. Who says he is one and not the other is either stupid because they want to be, or really has no clue what is real. More dumb race baiting about him being black. halfway only folks!

Actually why don't you try reading up on the history of the US Census. Obama does want to change who controls the census, but currently the race is based on the birth mother.

Which would count him as white.

What if 0bama were white and he had fired people simply because white bloggers released selected videos of them, people like Van Jones and Shirley Sherrod?

What is up with all these people of color being thrown under the bus? I don't see a lot of white folk under them bus wheels, even his former mentor, inspiration and pillar of religious fortitude, Rev. Wright, is under the bus.

Every other month or so the Congressional Black Caucus has a new bone to pick with 0bama, even going so far as prompt Jim Clyburn to say 0bama’s inner circle keeps “screwing up” on race: He needs some black people around him.”
Obama is just as white as he is black. In fact, I heard that his father was part black, part arab, but I never did confirm it. However, your queston os not in comportment with the facts.

Obama throws anyone under the bus who impedes his narcissistic fantasies of unopposed dictatorship and a elitist Socialist regime. No one must steal the light of attention off the GREAT ONE.That's an opinion stated as a FACT. I suggest you learn to discern the two. Under the bus with you!
Obama succeeded during the campaign because he campaigned with his true self. We elected him on that principle. Now, he seems to flailing as he tries to please everyone in the Nation. All of us know we cannot please everyone all of the time. With Obama being the first BLACK President of this very White controlled country he is carving new paths. IMO, he should move forward with the honesty and heart of his ideology just as he did during his campaign.

Choose a side and stick with it. If the other side doesn't like it the so what---------they don't like it. They are like Mikey. They don't and won't like anything about Obama. He only has a chance at two terms. One is under the belt; the second is up for grabs and the Repugs have NO ONE to offer up that is viable. He shoudl be who he is and he isn't doing that right now. IMO, that is why this administration is flailing.

Never, never, never, ever let anyone influence your heart. That is Obama's biggest mistake.

Choice a bloomin' side and stick with the program.

BTW, I don't care what "color" wants to claim they are, If that person wants to be President, then I look at what they believe/ at least claim to believe on policy. I completely disagree so far with the self centered moron stinking up the whitehouse now. And I dislike the Vice President about the same amount.

I live in conservative racial hatred ground zero. I was born here. I constantly feel like I'm politically in enemy territory. So I'm in enemy country. I got involved in politics when I left here and went to the military. See my folks had been "discouraged" from participating in politics long ago so it took me to leave to find other ideas about the political world. ya dig?
