    that the passionate Obama Derangement Syndrome is purely racial.

    Even Obama hasn't been warned by any politicians that it's not safe for him to visit military bases, as President Clinton was.

      But I know that much of it is racial.

      Some folks truly hated them some Bill Clinton, back when he was president.  Hell, every president is hated by some people.  

      But Clinton also won Georgia.  Arkansas.  West Virginia.  Appalachia didn't hate Clinton, but it sure as hell hates Obama.  I don't know what percent of the white vote Clinton won in Alabama.  In 2008, Obama won 10% of it.
