At least he's honest about why he doesn't like Obama.
Rather than coming up with a bunch of BS or trying to pretend otherwise he just ups and admits it.
On the flip side, how many black people were voting for him just because he's black? I wonder whether there are more people voting for him because he's black, or voting against him because he's black.
Might we be more inclined to vote for an open atheist? Might we find the issue of non-religion to weigh more than other issues? We might.
Sigh. Black people are not voting for Obama because he is black. It is because he is the best person to carry forth an agenda that most black people identify with. The fact of his race just adds a cool historical and multicultural element to the election. Black people vote for white candidates all the time, and rarely make racial insults about them. Not so much the other way.
I get so annoyed with this question-- as if black people would abandon the Democrats and vote for an idiot like Herman Cain (R-Ignoramous) or Allan West (R-Crazytown) just because they have brown skin. On the other hand, millions of white people have rejected decades of loyalty to the Democrats to vote for Republicans with terrible policies, purely on the basis of race.
I saw this first-hand when we elected the progressive Harold Washington, the first (and so far, only) black mayor of Chicago. The racial hatred during that campaign was undisguised, and almost resulted in the election of an inexperienced unknown candidate scraped up in a last ditch emergency effort to defeat the nig. This guy would have been a terrible leader, and the first Republican mayor in memory, but at least he was white. After Washington won, the racism continued, with people calling him up during live on-air policy discussions to ask him how many monkeys and gorillas he had working for him in the mayor's office.
People vote for a candidate for a lot of reasons, many of them pretty superficial. In the US we almost always choose the taller, more robustly photogenic candidate with the nicest hair and teeth. Can you imagine someone who looked cadaverous like Lincoln or was handicapped like FDR being elected today? And these were arguably two of our best presidents. Look at how Reagan made people think he was their kindly doting uncle while warmongering abroad and destroying the middle class at home.
