if he were white, I don't think he would've beaten Hillary in the primary.

Obama is Hawaiian
Obama is from Hawaii, he isn't "Hawaiian" ethnically.

If Obama was white

I dislike his white half. He's in over his head. No experience. Junior (very junior) senator only. Community organizer for job experience. Would you have hired him to run a business that you owned? Yet you hired him to run the USA.

I am black and I am sure there are people who hate him because of his race, (forget the half white line, that is a media creation). One the other hand, there are millions for whom he can do no wrong because of his race, so it kinda evens out. Add to that the intimidation applied to anyone who opposes him, by the constant whining about racism whenever he is opposed.

Truth be told, he is an effective rabble rouser but a poor leader. He never seems to take ownership of any problems. Note his reaction to the problems with the Obamacare website. He tells us he is "frustrated", as if he had nothing to do with it and like us, he is just now trying to use it. I was waiting for him to tell us to rise up and demand an answer from the folks in charge. News flash, he was in charge!

He's always looking for a scapegoat or excuse. This may work well with his adherents but does little to inspire independents or opponents. He reminds me of the kid we all knew growing up who always had an excuse for poor play. "The sun was in my eyes"or the "stupid ball jumped out of my glove". Want to see an example of real leadership? Google the text of Ike's speech he had ready in case D-Day failed.

This President has, through his surrogates, exploited his race while appearing above it all. He could stop the constant complaints about racism if he wanted to do so. I guess he and his backers do not think he is as capable as dealing with opposition as a white man would be and that is real racism in action.

The clincher to me though, is the fact that he has been treated more gently than either of the last two white men who held the office. Anyone think both Clinton and Bush were not far more reviled?

E46fanatics will bring back MLKs dream.

By focusing their negativity on blacks and telling them to pull themselves up by their bootstraps.

Someone should erect you guys a monument.

Old ways die hard

Chase's Grammy is racist

They're the same age.

You really think there is an off switch for inbred racism?

545 people run the federal government yet...

Everything bad is Obama fault.
Everything good has nothing to do with Obama.

Obama care was Obama's wrong doing...
even though the President does not create or pass laws.

Obama has a 48% approval rate and congress has like a 10%.

But...somehow...everything that is wrong with America is always blamed on Obama.

I am not even a democrat but I so tired of everyone bitching about Obama.

The fact is...
Congress can do ANYTHING they want WITHOUT the President's Approval.
All they need is 2/3 of the vote. Less than 70%. If you get less than 70% in a class you fail.

What is congress' excuse? They can pass ANY bill they want overriding the President's veto. If THEY are so smart and THEY know how to fix the country, then do it!

60% is technically passing
