    I can't help getting the feeling that a lot of his fellow democrats as well as media pundits are a little bit more reluctant to disagree with him and/or criticize him than they otherwise would be, simply because they fear nothing more than they fear being labeled a racist.

    Am I stating the obvious here or am I off my rocker?

    Discuss.

    No, his being elected President of the United States should.

    Obviously, Republicans don't see it that way.

    It amazes me sometimes how much I have to spell shit out for nitwits!

    So let me be more clear: RELATIVE TO OTHER PRESIDENTS, Does Obama's blackness get him special deference?

    sheesh!

    Obviously not. He has been ripped to shreds. He has NOT lied us into war. He has not given no bid contracts to his friends. No other president in history has been ripped the way he has, except for possibly Lincoln because he fought to keep the country together.

    What are you drinking? I'd say if anyone admitted to voting for Obama because he was black it was manifold, not rdean.
