        The Republicans are right in a backward way when they call Obama divisive.

        The existance of Obama in the WH is. But it is because of the subconcious and concious racism of many White Americans. So many do not realise that vague alarm and distrust that had Tea Partiers protesting Obama's election before he even took office often comes from deep seated racial bias.

        I am often ashamed of my country, almost daily when I read what these oblivious fools say.

        In a way the US was not ready for a Black President. Or many were not. Obama has had to deal with so much shit others haven't. I really do think the distrust and degree of vitriole and shear hatred he gets is from racism. I wish our country would talk publically about this. Obama can't; he is too close to it. But Black scholars and Dem activists and leaders not associated with the WH can bring it up and make it a constant converstation. Was the US ready for a Black President? HOw has it show it was not?

        Occasionally I imagine that Michelle and he must be sick of this crap and in their private converstations before bed talk about how sad the racism is in this country. As their girls grow through the teenage years they will become more and more aware. How sobering for their parents.

        I think history will be very kind to Obama for many things he's accomplished in such a foul atmosphere.

        and also that I think there are many in the US who were not ready for a Black President after all. Those fools say Obama is divisive, not aware that the current divisiveness is due to their own racism that was stired up by his election. I wish our country would talk openly about this. How have we treated this man compared to the WHite Presidents?

        History will be kind to him I think given especially this context he has to function in.

        And Michelle looks like a saint from this point of view. I think it is real patriotism that he ran for a second term.

          President Obama brought the closet racists out in droves. I have passed out literature in the south for every candidate since Dukakis and I have never seen such vitriol at the polls as I have seen with Obama. And people haven't been the least bit ashamed or afraid to holler outrageous racist comments. I suspect that many not living around it--and even some who did--did not anticipate the depth of race hatred.

      Wow!  The Scandal of it all.  What was the War of Northern Aggression about?  Was it to impose the rule of some Kenyan, Muslim, Communist, Fascist on the good Southern Baptists of rural Georgia and Alabama?  General Lee must be rolling over in his grave.  If he had known that this was going to happen he would have turned East toward D.C. rather than wasting his troops in the fields at Gettysburg.
