Who cares what color he is? HE SUCKS AT HIS JOB. So bad, in fact, that not even a single Democrat has voted for his budget plans, in 3 years and 6 months and counting. That, my friends, isn't leadership. He couldn't get macaroni and cheese to come together.
Racism is what GOT him elected - undeniable fact - but even that won't work twice. The 95% of blacks who voted for him last time have dwindled quite a bit. Why? Because once you're in office, the rubber has to meet the road.... and all Obama did was slam it in reverse.
As for Daniel's delusional comment, he can hammer away on that keyboard til baby Jesus comes home, but he's obviously blind to the fact that it was Republicans that drafted, driven and brought every civil rights amendment in history. All the Democrats ever did was develop a strategy to re-enslave them: "Free crumbs for life, as long as you don't ever dare try to bake your own cake! Just keep voting Democrat and we'll be sure you get your scraps." THat sure as hell isn't freedom.
But this isn't about racism; this is about money. Thinking it a good deal that the government should take it, waste 3/4 of it and give 25% back to the citizens - REGARDLESS of who ends up with it - is just plain ignorant. Name one thing ANY government has done better and more efficiently than the private sector. It'll never happen. Why? Because compensation for government workers is in no way tied to efficiency or outcome. No incentive, whatsoever, to do a great job. If you don't believe me, just look at everyone from the DMV to the guy who just blew 6 trillion and has absolutely nothing of value to show for it. The more the government takes, the less ALL of us have, to buy from each other; to create and sell to each other; to start our own businesses; to take care of our families; and yes, even to GIVE to each other.
This has nothing to do with race; it has to do with WASTE. It was nice having our first black president; all of America was proud of that, myself included. But next time, post up a GOOD one, because this one has been a complete and utter failure. All talk, no walk. He's an overhyped community organizer who has never built or run anything in his life... and it shows.
Every now and then, American can afford the luxury of a bit of irrational idealism; this is most definitely not that time. All we can't afford right now is to tell government to get out of the way so we can fix the balance sheet and work on the bottom line.
