...and Frank Marshal Davis, and his father, and his mother, and Jeremiah Wright, and Professor Derrick Bell, and all of the nameless Marxists, Communists, and Socialists that he admits he hung around with in college...
And he sold himself as the "great uniter". Too bad "the great deceiver" is already copyrighted...

What do you expect?

Yes, and I truly believe Obama is insane: mind you the old saying, any who object to this - "Crazy (or insane) does not mean stupid."
Daishi3100 Rechtglaubig • 17 minutes ago
The matter is this: He is not even bothering to try and put out the fires - gasoline or not.
He wants the divisions to escalate, and allow his progressive socialistic agenda to advance even further and faster: all-encompassing Federal government is progressive end-game.

"Put out fire with gasoline."I see the analogy within it now: well said, and sadly, very true.
We have a narcissistic sociopath in the White House who views Americans as the main enemy. To him, our nation must be 'duly punished' for all of the 'crimes real or not' he believes to have happened.
I know Obama mentioned one time about taxes and his time in office would be based on 'what is fair, not what is right." Of course, his idea of 'fair' is pure socialistic in nature; or should I even say communist-dictatorial in nature.

Like I have said before. Obama has set race relations back 30 years. And Americans will see the real damage he has done once he is out of office.Being called a racist everyday cant help race relations that is for sure.

Try 40 years ago!
30 years ago Bill Cosby, Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson among others were huge American celebrities for many whites and others. The 80's had great race relations.
Daishi3100 Seewetoldu • 11 minutes ago
If I may say so: HE and his radical associates have set them back 30 years, but it will remain that way only if WE, the people of the land, chose for it to remain so.
The damage has been inflicted: from the wreckage we can make the nation all the greater again. We must ensure the lessons of Obama and the progressives foul-manner and methodology are never forgotten, and never allowed to arise a second time.

After watching the left leaning MSM praise Obama like he was the second coming for the last 6 years, I can tell you the real Barack Obama is no Barack Obama.

You had it right at "rear". He's the south end of a north bound swine.
Daishi3100 Ron Myers • 10 minutes ago
Not quite: it proves you can make a sow's ear LOOK like a silk purse. Deeds testify to the truth of the matter though.

That must be the same 10% that thinks Elvis is still alive.

Seems to me that race relations are not only not improved, they are quite a bit worse than when Bush was president.

So more people think that he's made it worse rather than better and the majority think he's just been ineffectual. Sounds about right.

I want to know who makes up the 10% that say it's better. They need to donate their brains to science when they die...

It would take an electron microscope to see their brains. But you can be certain that they are Obama voters. All is consistent.

improved? I'm from St Louis, Hussein Obama set race relations back 25 years. way to Obama and Holder. By the way, where was the remark from Obama, "if I had a nephew he would look like Mike Brown". Remember that stupid remark about Travon the thug.

If I were Obama, I would be incredulous over these poll numbers. I would also ask Marvin Nicholson what he thinks about it while playing a round of golf.

Obama's mental depression has catapulted him to the cusp of the abyss. The growing stress of the job, which he runs away from every day, will soon push him into a black hole of serious mental sickness. His mental illness and depression is the legitimate subject of discussion.
