    I'd guess that would be a low percentage, but that's only based on my own experiences.  

    So white Liberals/"Progressives"/Democrats can't be racist?

    But until Webster's Dictionary includes the definition of racist as being people who are against Obama's actions and inactions, then nah, we aren't racist.

    Obama still has time to announce he's not running for a second term. THEN we could have a productive and meaningful Democratic Primary. We desperately need that.

      You all are holding him to an unusually high standard that you're not holding other Democratic leaders to.  For all of the things you claim he's not doing right, none of you have thrown Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid into the mix.  What about Sen. Leahy or Sen. Kerry? Shouldn't they also share the blame and scorn of you "Progressives", or whatever, equally?  Where were the calls to primary them?  When were they called Republicans?

      I'm convinced that all of you are pissed because he's not the black Democratic politician you percieved black Democratic politicians to be.  So that doesn't make you racists, just white privileged liberal bigots.
