    Let me ax you a question. Obama has around a 57% negative rating now but 91% of blacks give him a positive rating. Why is that? :rolleyes:

    I think its hysterical that he won. Was he the first name on the check list? Or was he so improbable to win that everyone voted for him, and won by default?

    Imagine a southern republican saying such a thing!

    What cracks me up is the lengths these blame everyone else democrats are going to to pin it on the republicans!
    Fuckin' idiots wanna blame everything on the right, including their own incompetence.

    The whole thing is very amusing.

    Part of it may be an anti-incumbent mentality, part might be that Blacks wanted to vote for another Black and they recognized the 'Black' spelling of Green (Greene), part of it might be that his name was at the top of the list.

    I think it makes you wonder at Democracy in general. Is the public really informed enough to be voting? They don't seem to know what they're even voting for.

    I've seen it spelled both ways both black and white.

    No, not at all.
    The guy is a total ignoramus. Let's start with "race might have been a factor." Yeah, so might a dozen other things.
    As for the spelling, whenever you see a standard name and one spelled with e at the end, this is what is going on: in England the illegitimate branch of the family attached an e to the end of the name.
    I dont know how a black man got the name Greene. Maybe a friend or someone who manumitted his ancestors.
