I was over checking out the I Have The Floor blog this morning and saw this list of things that apparently the repugs and their media think are OK for a 'white' POTUS and his FLOTUS but have criticized the Obama Presidency for.  As soon as I saw the list, I wanted to post it here and give everyone the opportunity to add their particular point(s) of observation.  Have at it below the squiggle.

1.  Deliver State of the Union without being heckled
 2.  Complete Rose Garden remarks without interruption
 3.  Call for a joint session of Congress (the NERVE!)
 4.  Take a vacation (LAZY!)
 5.  Play golf (ELITIST!)
 6.  Play basketball (GHETTO!)
 7.  Attend Harvard (QUOTA!)
 8.  Have a birthday party (must instead be called “hip hop barbecue”)
 9.  Invite other black people to White House (THUGS!)
10. Speak to school children
11. Appoint judges
12. Serve without providing long-form birth certificate to douchebag rich guy and racist Sheriff
13. Serve without providing SAT scores (see #7)
14. Lawfully use executive authority when Congress refuses to act
15. Issue orders as Commander-in-Chief of the military
16. Take a single scintilla of credit for killing the world’s biggest terrorist
17. Run for re-election
18. Raise funds for said run
19. Go on late night TV
20. Encourage healthy eating
21. Have garden
22. Do push-ups
23. Display awesome arms
24. Be larger than size 6
25. Use teleprompter

I am sure that there are many more.  Please add yours in the comments section.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
