You aren't saying anything meaningful. The same can be said about the republican party. Racists exist in both.

We were not ready for a black president. That is very evident by the propaganda the left spouts everyday on race. Everytime Obama does something underhanded , he knows the dems will cover him.. and use the race card to get their propaganda point across. I am not fooled..
We weren't ready for a mentally handicapped president either. That didn't stop Bush. Either way, we need to get better at voting.

We certainly need an agnostic president more than one of any particular race.

Harrier thinks that a better indication of the U.S.A. being a post racial society would have been given by President Obama not being re-elected.

It would have shown that we really do not make judgments based on skin color, and are able to hire and fire a black man based solely on merit and content of character.

Obama was not elected on color of his skin so this is just as good of an indication.

If we really wanted a good indication, we should have run a solid black candidate against a solid white candidate. Instead, we ran a mediocre black candidate against a bunch of mentally handicapped buffoons. It pretty much made Obama's election a given.

"Sigh" - Would that they had only run a real person against him.

These political parties really nominate some fractions, don't they?

I can't remember, who was the Tea Party trying to get nominated?

Milt was an attempt to out non the non man.

I guess I'd rather have a real non-president than a fake non-president.

Probably a genuinity thing.

Are you a psychiatrist?

Are you calling Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and John Edwards mentally handicapped?

I was speaking figuratively. I am calling the republican opponents to Obama mentally handicapped buffoons. That's the only reason why Obama won. No because he was good. But because America is at least smart enough to elect the lesser of two idiots.

You referred to a "bunch of mentally handicapped buffoons".

President Obama only ran against two Republicans in total when he was running for president in 2008 and 2012.

Harrier considers a "bunch" to be at least three of something.

President Obama ran against a bunch of Democrats in 2008.
