    Boo Hoo, Funny, he doesn't mind that most blacks voted for him because he is black. I asked some of them why they voted for him and in various ways the answer was -he's one of us.

    Barry gets worse by the day.

    Funny too, that these same people who don't like Barry would vote for Ben Carson or Herman Cain, I guess they aren't really black huh Fred.

    This is the whole quote in context from the original article. Not only was he making a point that most people already recognize, he was making it in a larger context:

    None of this is terribly controversial, much more legitimate things to get upset about, even if you disagree with him IMO.

    Let's get real here, whether this speech is racist or not, Obama is all about dividing our nation into segments he thinks he can win over to his side. And he has, several times before, used the "race-card" to get sympathy from the sheeple voters.

    This makes no sense, unless he's worried about his third term polling numbers.

    It was a slick way to get race injected into the Obamacare disaster. Some people don't like him because he is black (suggesting they are racist), by extension then, not liking Obamacare means you don't like me and people who don't like me are racist, therefore if you don't like Obamacare you are a racist.

    Agree 100%, he is on record as saying he has one campaign left.....and that's for Obamacare.

    since he doesn't have to run himself anymore, he is now free to make any accusations he wants directly

    Racial animus is part of what got him into office. His policies were secondary.

    The same sort of thing will happen imo if hillary runs, her gender will get her in.

    Voters seem to be more concerned with how you look on the outside nowadays, unless of course your policies are too moral and happen to be against abortion, homosexuality, etc. then they won't vote for you

    True leaders don't blame their failures on their followers. True leaders ask the tough questions of "What did I do to cause whites not to support my agenda?"

    But its much easier to blame racism. Its what mentally weak people do.

    I hate Obama because I lost both my insurance plan and my sons doctor due to Obamacare.

    If that constitutes racism.....I'm guilty as charged
