    Democrats who pile on with concern trolling when Obama has done exactly the right thing are Democrats who fear that they're obsolete.  

    Obama is a 21st Century politician with a 19th Century opposition party, trying to move a 20th Century party into the future (or even the present).  That's terrifically threatening, and more so when the leader is black, very skilled, very successful, and personally charming.  

    This is the endemic racism in our country - something embedded beneath cognition and very frightening to take into the light and deal with.   Old white guys grew up with "Once you go black you never go back", and that's driving a lot of the controversy on all of today's issues.  

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
