    the absolute and entire reason he was elected both times was because he was 1/2 black(embraced) 1/2 white(rejected), and people somehow managed to completely override any objective basis to vote for him, instead voting on subjective criteria and emotion only, his resume is/was thinner than any previous president and not even a white candidate would have tried to run on such a resume with any seriousness. and no way should a white/black/latino/asian/indian candidate with that resume, and lack of accomplishment been elected,nor re-elected.period.

    not to mention he got basically all the minority vote, not just the black. I would say that the majority of people who supported obama did not do so because they liked his policies. heck they probably had no clue what they were. They voted for a "brotha"

    Here is another quote that defines the extreme arrogance of Obama:

    Translation: "Anyone who doesn't think like I do is having trouble perceiving reality. And these are the people who are preventing Republican Congressional leadership from doing what I say."

    No hint of the need to negotiate with Congress, no need to even understand the republican position on anything. Republican Congressmen just need move in his direction, and Obama will tell them when they've gone far enough.

    Remarkable thing to say considering that Congressional republicans voted in a massive tax increase on the wealthy last year in exchange for spending cuts that never materialized.
