    "I don’t like some of his policies, like on energy," said Bob Beidelman, 69, a white Democrat from York, Pa., who held an unfavorable view of Mr. Obama. "Also I don’t like statements his wife made. She seems like a spoiled brat to me."

    He added: "I’m one of those white people who clings to guns and the Bible and those things that Barack said kind of turned me off," he said. "This isn’t a black and white thing. If a conservative African American like former congressman J. C. Watts was running, I’d have bumper stickers plastered all over my car supporting him."

    Why would a white democrat just love JC Watts?  Can someone explain this to me?  

    My explanation is the guy is a republican posing as a democrat, but I'm open for other explanations.

      is spot on. he's a republican posing as a democrat. It's laughable that he labels Michelle Obama as a "spoiled brat," considering she probably grew up under worse circumstances than him.
