President Obama could not have been elected by black voters alone. There aren't nearly enough of them. We have learned that white Americans can be trusted to look beyond race and skin color to elect the man they think will be best for the job... More

I really do not care that he was a minority at all. The fact that he is incompetent and lies all the time makes me frustrated. Yes, people need to vote for the most experienced and a proven record over minority status.

That when people are involved, as they were in 2008, we make good decisions. Statistics show that when fewer people vote, conservatives tend to win. This is why they always work so hard to suppress the vote... More

race based political action is wrong. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MGT_cSi7 being personally "p****d off" because someone suggest minorities be held accountable financially is how affirmative action has corrupted policy.

It has nothing to do with him be a minority, it is all about his policies and agenda. Sadly there were those that voted for him strictly due to race.

Many things, but I think the most important ones are: 1) Take control of the education system away from the government. 2) Start teaching the next generation about economics, the meaning of the Constitution, and civic responsibility (along with some history of the founding of this nation)

Only that we judge a man by his worth, instead of his color, a mistake made mostly by, but not limited to, minorities. Had this been the case in '08, we might not be in the mess we've got goin' now.

well we have seen how much bigotry masked by "political indignation" there is. Im not saying all those opposed to Obama are acting out of bigotry, but there are many no matter how loud the denial.

Ok I voted obama because he said he'd end Iraq which he hasn't, let the Patriot Act expire which he hasn't, not use the federal government to enforce marijuana laws which he did Eric Holder did, and I'm pro-choice. So I voted for what I my personal beliefs are not because he was a minority.
