The Racist ReElectO Gambit: “If I could find a black man who had the white sound and the white feel, I could make a billion dollars.”

We must make every effort not to care what they think, but to counter it strongly. They've had this narrative for far too long, and it's time we turn the, strike that, turn the lash they've been using on our backs and whip them into a bloody political pulp. And if they move, hit 'em harder.

"Obama" is a cult. A religious cult.

Americans elected a turd because they liked the colour. Is it too much to hope that they'll smarten up?

GOP=Goofy Obsequious Pansies

They gave away the PR battle to a finger puppet.
They will cave on this dustup so everyone will like them; more importantly, so they'll get re-elected.

Not our 'first post-racial President', but our

"First Affirmative Action President", with the chute leading to the Oval Office greased by all the do good racial prejudice of EEO.

Obama is such a failure, and a demonstrated incompetent, that his fascist ideological presidency will, unfortunately, in all likelihood eliminate from consideration for the presidency all "people of color" for the next 50 years. And, because of the politically correct nature of our present culture, women will likewise be treated as a "minority" and eliminated from consideration. Instead we will get a bunch of big government white males who will introduce fascism slowly, or, at any rate, no faster than George W. Bush did.

Even a pile of manure is new and shiny at some point.

""Obama" is a cult. A religious cult."

Funny: someone already made that point using lyrics from Cake in a video montage that has been censored by YouTube.

We were all forewarned in 2008. The electorate didn't listen. Fine. They're getting it now, good and hard, for not listening to those warnings in the first place.

But the reckoning is coming. As soon as The One is sent packing (and I believe it will happen), expect the entire U.S. economy to sing the Hallelujah chorus for years after.
