In 2008 131 million votes were cast: Ethnicity % of voters # of voters Voted Obama Attitude today White 76.3% 99,953,000 44% Democrat Obama BUT 38% vote today black 12.1% 15,851,000 91% for Obama 87% would vote today Hispanics 7.4% 9,694,000 more democrats 67% Asian 2.5% 3,275,000 not sure Of those 43.97 million white voters for Obama, how many do you think voted for Obama because they didn't want to think they were racist by not voting for Obama? KNOWING that MOST WHITE people really didn't know how inexperienced Obama was..(he was campaigning for president 2 years after his Senate term started), didn't know he had NO executive experience but was a community organizer. So when those ignorant Iowans had to physically STAND in the caucuses they didn't want the press, nor the country to think they were unsophisticated , racists, so they like the 44% of whites voted for Obama and I contend MOST WHITE voters did so because they didn't want to think themselves "RACIST"! What a shame that Obama who never 1) served in the military as Allen West, a black did..20 years rank of lieutenant colonel), 2) had ANY business experiences like Tim Scott a black GOP congressman who owns an insurance agency, and works as a financial advisor was the first affirmative action president.. to the endangerment of us all! And all because probably 10% or more of the 43 million white voters for Obama voted because THEY didn't want to think they were racist! Now there will be some idiot comments about me being a "racist" and mostly from those idiots that voted for Obama because he was black and they are racists. See I absolutely respect and admire West and Scott and knowing that both have FAR more experiences then Obama EVER had would be a Black Presidential candidate as well as J.C.Watts, Florida's Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll even better a black retired Navy Lieutenant Commander, Aviation Maintenance Officer after 20 years, Herman Cain GodFather's Pizza CEO (who I shook hands with great respect!!) just to name a FEW QUALIFIED,EXPERIENCED black people .. again I would work for to get elected and obviously vote for just to name a few! So those few idiots who want to call my comments "racist"? I ignore you as well as other intelligent people ignore you who realized early on that Obama was FOOLING people and those of you who voted for him and still defend him.. YOU obviously NEVER read his book where he told us he was FOOLING US and he's laughing especially at you WHITE guilt ridden voters! "Dreams of My Father" "It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned. People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied. They were revealed. Such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn't seem angry all the time." Fooled you Obama voters and he is laughing at you right now cause HE KNOWS you were fooled by him because he didn't tell you .. NOW he's laughing even harder because IN spite of his RECORD... you idiots are going to vote AGAIN for him.. this time because he knows you won't admit you were wrong the first time! He's counting on your pride. Counting on your not wanting to be fools! And fortunately there are fewer fools this time and MORE people looking at what HE HAS done to this country and he's flimsy excuses! His "transparency"! HIS RECORD!!!
