Well, all I can say is if we women and minorities have a president who represents US in President Obama, you sure had one that truly represented YOU in George Bush.
I don't have to tell myself anything, liberal freaks have already done that. I didn't create the hateful and discriminatory program, you liberal freaks did. I am just throwing your hatred and bigotry back into your face. Maybe if you choke on your own bile and bigotry long enough you will do the right thing and treat everyone as equals. Then there will be no more Affirmative Action Presidents, Governors, Senators, Representatives, and Supreme Court Justices, but not until then.

Any true American would be insulted by such an erroneous assumption and demand that Affirmative Action be abolished. Liberal freaks, on the other hand, embrace their bigotry and fully support government instituted discrimination.
Hmmm, let me count how many nonwhite or female presidents has there been since the inception of this country.....(still counting)

You clearly have no clue whatsoever. Just like the Affirmative Action President.
Oh, so it was purely by merit that everyone in a position of power for most of the United States' existence was a white male. Oh yeah, purely merit. No affirmative action whatsoever. Uh huh.

So why is it that we needed laws that allowed white women, black men, and black women the rights and privileges that your affirmative action allowed white men by nature of their birth?

Poor little white men who propped themselves up by excluding others through the laws of the land because these same men couldn't hack it with real competition. Bunch of limp-*ick losers and their descendants who now whine about catch-up affirmative action for others. PATHETIC!

And more than likely you would be okay with that. I can guarantee it won't have anything to do with his policies, hell the fool that would even attempt it probably has is a complete idiot with no real insight on politics and/or policies. He/She would merely be doing it because of the ignorant loud mouth idiots creating a hostile environment!

Neither. Obama would be the victim NOT the CAUSE.
The CAUSE would be because of the violence instigated by the drooling, gangsters on the right....the illiterate slimebags who post lies, the "Palin's" who have NO qualms about who they may hurt, the followers of Limbaugh and his like who have NOTHING going for them , canNOT use what little brains they have and so, like cavemen and woman, resort to the lowest level...violence.....

So what you are saying is that people who take high risk jobs such as police officers and the military who risk their lives daily for the sorry likes of you b/c they "wanted" the job and all that it entails.......you are truely a sorry azz person

You clearly have no clue whatsoever. Just like the Affirmative Action President.
You clearly have no sense of irony. The form AA always took before was through "legacy" admittance to colleges, "old boy network" way of doing business, and getting hired at a place because your dad or your uncle or both worked there and so they hired you. Good grief....THAT is how affirmative action ALWAYS worked for white men in this country. That is WHY there needed to be an Affirmative Action plan for the rest of us. Because of there had NEVER been a black or hispanic parent admitted to a college in the FIRST place then there could be no "legacy" enrollment possibility. And if there was no person of color or woman in the "old boys network" then there was no way for a person of color or woman to get any of the business. And if no black or hispanic dad or uncle and no mother had ever been hired by a company in the first place than there was way to get their foot in the door. If people want to pretend that white men never had a leg up in this society then they've been going through life blindfolded...or they're 12 years old.
