Obama Using Race As A Weapon Against Opposition

Ironically, Obama's team is more race conscious than the opposition.  Reverse discrimination is still that, racial discrimination.  Just because Obama is (half) Black doesn't mean he should be immune from criticism.  And just because someone criticizes him or his policies, doesn't mean that the person is looking at the color of his skin.

U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama and his fans have a colored chip on their shoulders.  If Obama had been white, Hispanic or Asian, he never would have gotten nominated and certainly not elected.  Maybe with a decade or more experience he would have been more qualified, or maybe he would have just become a disappointing has been.

Now, because his supporters produced a great campaign, the world and the United States are stuck with him.

Just consider how quickly he is moving. Under your scenario it would have taken a full decade for everyone to recognize him as a has been (or more accurately as a never was). Now that he has been elected to the office of President of the United States, he was able to achieve that status in less than a year, even while serving.

The debacle with the Nobel prize and health care and now economy are sinking his ship quickly. I just saw on the news this afternoon that his approval rating has dropped to below 50%. That's progress.

With Hashem's help the US and world will be toss him.

You're right Batya. He does indeed have a colored chip on his shoulder, even going so far as to accuse his elderly white grandmother of racism.

Who does that to an elderly grandparent? Only the scum of the earth.

Batya said...

Sabba Hillel, yes the speed of this is very worrying.

And Keli, do ordinary Americans really show their disapproval? Only the whites or the blacks, too?

Keli Ata said...

That's a good questions, Batya. Sad to say, the majority of blacks I've talked to defend everything Obama does. They're like pit bulls. If you disagree with Obama on an issue you're branded a racist.

The majority of white people are too afraid of being called racist to express any real disapproval. There's real tension. Some even feel like they have to pretend to adore all things Obama, including how "attractive" Michelle when come on, she's very ugly and doesn't have anywhere near the class Jackie O had.

My brother has noooo problem telling people how much he dislikes Obama:)

Hopefully they'll express themselves at the voting booth in 2012 and vote this turkey of a president out of office.

The best Thanksgiving present for the country:) And the world, really.

Batya said...

Keli, it doesn't sound very good, and 2012 is a long way from now.

He knows that eh longer he is in office, the less people will want him in office. It is a race between his trying to force his agenda down everyone's throats and the 2010 elections. All he can hope for is to be able to get his minions in a position to fraudulently vote his henchmen into power before an honest election "throws the rascals out".

Keli Ata said...

It is a long way off and considering all the damage Obama has done in just nine months I shudder to think of what he'll do in three more years.

Regarding race, I can honestly say that the majority of white people I know, including me, have never once cited race in opposing Obama. It's all issue driven objections yet a lot of blacks and liberals twist it around.

Take the congressman who shouted "You lie!" to Obama. At least one liberal writer twisted it around and said she could hear the unspoken "boy" as in "You lie, boy."

Obama's pit bulls have made everything about race. They're the true racists in all of this.

Batya said...

sb, are you sure, that Americans will really reject him?
keli, that liberal writer sure projects his own hatred.

Unfortunately we have allowed Obama to use the race card.
If we call him what he is- a biracial raised by his white family and having no slave blood-he couldn't play the race card.
By letting him call himself the first "black" president we give him carte blanche

Batya said...

Daniel, Obama looks more black than white. Plus he is married to a proud black woman. The most "American" thing about them is that they live as cristians not Moslems.

american left is happy with a black as president, even though he's unqualified. American Jews think it's good for the Jews, which is a terrible mistake.
