I'm not racist. I disagree with Obama's white half, too.

Who knew Obama was black back in '08 when we all voted for him?
Gene, I'm sorry, but Dude, but it's time for an intervention! You can't live on Kool Aid!

You're SOOOOO predictable, Eugene. News flash: The "Race Card" isn't accepted most place anymore.

This column is so wrong its laughable. The Tea Party was a reaction to Obama's race? Hardly. Let's play counterfactual - if Hillary Clinton had been elected president and pursued the same course of action as Obama - overloaded stimulus, takeover of GM, massive healthcare bill - the exact same Tea Party reaction would have occurred. Its the spending, stupid!

Americans certainly can't be upset at Obama because he's an incompetent, naive, communist. Its because he's Black. Well I've got news, Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Barney Frank,and Grayson, to name a few, I hate ever bit as much as Obama, and none of them are Black
