I've got a crystal ball and I can see in to the future... I see Obama, in 4 years, still responding to every criticism with "Bush did it".

Allen West would have been a real President.

My only issue is with the numbers.

93% of registered black voters voted Obama.

60% of registered white voters voted Romney.

I have zero issues if you voted for the guy you felt best suited to lead.

I do have an issue if you voted solely because of skin color and these numbers suggest it was less of issues and more in line with a Yankee fan voting Yankee players on the All Star Ballot.

If you think A-Rod deserves the All Star team, no can defend.

If you vote A-Rod JUST because "I'm a Yankee fan, of course I'm voting for my guy", it's an issue.

An issue the media won't dare address but one which bears looking at without emotion given we all purport ourselves to be moving forward as a less biased collective. Phone Post

93% of the black vote for Obama is only partly about race. 90% of the black population is leftist, so it's not very slanted. John Kerry got 88%. Black America is only about 12% of the total population though. 60% of white voters for Mitt reflects the fact that America is generally center-right.

People like to point their fingers at America when they talk about racism, but it's bullshit. America is the only country in the history of the world where a non-black majority population elected a black leader. Only America. And we won't see it in Canada or anywhere in Europe in our lifetime.

Agree 1000%.

 

If you are black, and vote black just because, that is racism at it's finest.

little bit out of context. 95% of black registered voters are dems. clinton and gore both broke 90% and kerry a guy that didn't seem to inspire blacks at all got nearly 90%. so those numbers are in line with what any dem would get.
