You are describing democrats and liberals. Hey who cares if millions lose their health insurance, who cares if Obamacare was sold on lies, just so Obama gets his way.

Wrong. I'm describing people on both sides, and not recognizing that this fits people on both sides shows that you are thinking this way too. It also shows one's partisan bias.

That is all I care about. Sadly, the very fact that you don't feel this way highlights the divides in this nation.
Obama is not a leader, he is not a good president. Oh and I and millions more couldn't care what race was president, that is how Obama got elected but once elected democrats showed who they are... forget that whites voted for him. Liberals and democrats thought because he is black he should get his way no matter what he does, disagree and the democrats attacked. Look what they did to Palin, look what they did to other blacks who disagreed with Obama. Forget that!

P.S. I am a woman.



The difference is petch751 is a women who uses common sense for her decision making. On the other hand, you played your hand by connecting her point to somehow say she would only vote for a white male. YOU are a feminist!

You've revealed yourself as the worst of hypocrites. After 5 years of constant cries of racism and womanizing toward anyone who disagrees with Obama (with VERY GOOD REASON) you have the audacity to reverse the field by implying that it's the conservatives (and not liberal progressives) that have been whining? WHAT AN ABSOLUTE JOKE!

How does it feel to be so utterly wrong about your Savior? He was supposed to be the racial healer and the great uniter, and all you got was a liar and divider. It must suck to know the conservatives were abosolutely right about this man. The pendulum has swung.

You better run, I think I hear your master calling.
That is exactly what the poster said! It is later admitted in another post - white male.

It is what it is.

I never said he was a good leader or a good President. Now you are putting words in my mouth. Name ONE(1) time when I said he was a good leader or a good President. Find one. All I said is that race and gender do not matter to me. Leadership and whether or not said person can do the job right is far more important. The very fact that you put words in my mouth could indicate that it is you who cares about the race and gender of the candidate. You have already indicated you don't want a female candidate.

So there are liberals who are bringing up race. Republicans have done this too. Republicans have proven just as divisive, and to deny this shows your political bias.

wow, defensive much? Did I say you said he was a good leader or a good president. "I SAID" Obama is not a good leader and is not a good president.

Except your intern, Mr. President. She's a sure thing.
