Default What would Liberals do to defend Obama if he was white?

I have heard "the race card" fly by so many times I have lost count and interest.

The Republicans were the first to have a black Secretary of State, Sec of Defense and Ambassador to the U.N. We nominated the first black Supreme Court Justice.

So - let's be completely honest. Color really does NOT matter to conservatives. We care about ideology. And dear liberals, you know that.

You know your constant references to "The race card" is a "trick" is to take certain racist people who may tend to vote republican (probably less than 1% of the republican roll call) and flip that around to say all conservatives are racist.

That is the truth - its a political tactic - not a reality. Pure propaganda, and you do know it.

So, I am curious. If you did not have "the race card" - how would you explain the disdain conservatives have for Obama as a President? If you could not just say "well, they're all racist" what else would you say to give a reason as to why we don't respect this presidency other than his ideology?

No, no. no... race is not allowed in this debate. Tell us why you think conservatives dislike Obama - with examples other than his race.

They don't like him because he is a champion of all the people, not just the rich and we all know the division of wealth in this country.

If race is not allowed to be discussed, why was it brought up?

I was wondering why it is part of the thread title.

Let's see....I'll go out on a limb and say the reason race is part of the thread title, and then Paul said to not use it as a reason we conservatives dislike Obama is because the question is to give reasons OTHER than race in your responses. The parameters of the question have to be defined. If 'white' was not in the title, and race not addressed in the question, then you'd all be saying we conservatives don't like Obama because he is black.

And despite his being one of the rich, he most definitely is not a champion of the rich, well, except for his benefactors. Perhaps the biggest reasons I don't like Obama are his devotion to divisiveness and how he is never responsible for anything. He drops into casual observer mode whenever something isn't going his way, as though he has nothing to do with it.

Is not President Obama as much white as he is black?

I have never heard a Liberal say that a white man does not belong in the White House.


On the other hand I have heard several Conservatives say that a black man does not belong in the White House.


A 'former friend' of mine said that a @#$%& does not belong in the White House unless he is a janitor.

Well, I've known some 'liberal' people (lots of them) who are equally opposed to black people being in the White House, so what does that prove? Bigots and racists are well represented on both sides of the aisle. Are we going to trade anecdotal comments back and forth on this subject or are the liberals going to try not to use the race card in explaining why they think people like me don't like Obama?

The reality still remains that President Obama represents the majority of Americans and the Republican party only represents an affluent subset. They hate him because he represents America better than they do.

Dave, you have your reasons to not like Obama. I understand that.

Personally I don't think that we have had a very good president in quite some time.

I do believe that a black man in the White House would have a tough time of it no matter what he did.

If race did not matter this subject would not have come up.
