    written, I would argue a subtle distinction.  It's not so much that the GOP is opposing Pres. Obama because he's black (no doubt they exhibit negative racial attitudes, but they would oppose any Democrat), the problem is that approximately 40-50% of the country can be influenced to oppose policies (depending on the issue) because of the Preident's race.  In other words, it's an effective tool to rally opposition within the white electorate.
