I wonder if Barack Obama was influenced by this woman he calls his wife. It is hard for me imagine someone with his background going to a ghetto church where all this ignorant stuff is spewed. If Obama had married a White woman, do you think he would be better off? Is Michelle the person that is influencing him with all this ghetto-slave-oppression crap?! Why has not Obama married a white woman?

I don't know about all that but I did just say elsewhere that it seems like Mrs Obama wears the pants in the family.

Wives influencing husbands, you say?

What a novel concept.

Next you'll be claiming that mothers-in-law often clash with wives.

That church is not in a ghetto area, as the term is used. It is a middle income neighborhood with some subsidized housing. And his pastor is certainly opinionated but not ignorant.

Some statements merit no response. May we get to the issues now?

the 2 women who influenced obama would be his mother and Michelle; his mother gave him a globalist view and michelle gave him an "american" view LOL

if Obama had married a white girl, he would be Tiger Woods, great at golf and not much of substance much else

I think Michelle married Barack because she really wanted to marry a white man.

You mean marrying white women makes you great at golf?

If Obama becomes president everybody would want to be associated with him ethnically and perpetually. Some will say he is black by virtue of his father being an African, Others will say he must be white due to his mother and his intellect, others will say he is Asian since he grew up as a child in Indonesia, and others will say he is Muslim due to his middle name.

I don’t see why in 2008 an American cant just be called an American.

There is no doubt about that... she has been characterized as bossy and emasculating. I also read that she hates to lose. She seems like one tough lady... I would not want to tangle with her. I am sure that she keeps Obama on a tight leash.

As any man who is fortunate enough to be married to a black woman knows, black women almost always ADD and ELEVATE the quality of the marriage and the person if the man is true. Because she is black, meaning that she is incredibly strong, intelligent, versatile, and possessing great dignity and integrity herself, their union allows him to more easily be who he is and maintain his extremely high level of brilliance. He is a fortunate man to have a woman like that.

He is not married to a white woman, so who cares about that scenario? He obviously didn't run into one (or any other race of woman) who was nearly as suitable.

About the ghetto-slave stuff, there is no human in history as barbaric and supremely ignorant as the slavemaster and those who are indifferent to the devastation that such evil wrought on an entire race and the effect it has had on successive generations descendants of slaves. The mentality of the "ghetto" pales in comparison to such people.
