Four more year of Obama will result in a Greece like default and riots. Actually, we could see this before his first term is up. We could see the riots before the month is up ...

Default Obama remains high

The question remains, why would anyone cast a vote for candidate Obama when he had no qualifications to be president of the USA.

Now after four years when candidate Obama has revealed his socialist heart, reversed his positions as documented on many videos, the question remains, why would anyone vote to re-elect him?

Even the mildly conscious can see Obama is a charlatan whose empty words constitute his imaginary accomplishments.

President Obama's Job Approval Ratings Remain High Among Black Voters

I am sure that Hitler's approval rating remained high among Nazis as well. Have blacks ever NOT SUPPORTED the democratic candidate by an overwhelming majority? Is there anything "new" here?

They will not vote for Obama based only on the color of his skin, because between you and me, as they so put it, this vote is for all of us, and the way we our currently going, we can't afford to go on as we are, we need change and good true change once and for all.
Not one person is ever the same, regardless of color, everyone is still a individual, but then there are those, who to me are ignorant, and will vote for OBAMA, based solely on his color, that is the most ignorant reason to vote for anyone, solely based on their color, regardless of the shi-- way he is running this Country and this economy.
What do you mean by "black very good friends"?

Well, is that really so surprising?

Whatever one thinks of Obama's record, being the first black President is an accomplishment. I have given Obama a few swift kicks myself, but I fully understand why Black folks would look more at the man than the record.

Wow. The non-black people in here speaking for blacks makes me very uneasy.

FYI, having "black friends" makes you no such expert on the entire race of people.

I reckon being black makes you no such expert on the entire race of people.

You damn right. Some black folks I still don't understand.

Still, amongst blacks, there is a general spirit of understanding and kinship. That much can't be denied.
