So I came across people that said they refuse to vote for Obama and these were the reasons they gave....

I don't want a black man in office, He's a racist, and he's a muslim.

Why are people so completely retarded?

I don't care if someone isn't voting for him just don't stand there and tell me that I shouldn't because he's racist against white people.

Were they offended or threatened in some way that you are going to vote for him?

They acted like it, they acted as though I shouldn't be voting for him because I'm white.

Then stay away from those people if you don't think you can change their attitudes. They sound kind of poisonous.

I know that although I won't vote for the good Senator from Illinois, I pray that if he becomes our president that he's the best president imaginable. We need that badly right about now.

If people don't wanna vote for him that's fine but I'm really tired of the racial overtones people have about it, or that he's a Muslim or racist. I've had some people say things like that, that I thought were somewhat intelligent, guess they fooled me.

The worst is the people who believe the stupid circulating emails.

Well, a good rule of thumb is never to believe anything you read in a forwarded e-mail.

I've seen more racism charged against voters who won't consider voting for Sen. Obama than I've seen charged against the Senator himself.

Maybe I just have a better e-mail filter and more liberal friends and relatives than you do...

Unfortunately there are more people with that attitude than you would ever know. That is the main reason that he will not be elected. There are a large percentage (30% if I remember the report) of democrats that said they would never vote for a black man.

If you really want a black man in office you need to pimp Powell, he is exceptionally intelligent and has more experience than anyone that was in the race from the beginning, either party.

I won't vote for Obama because he is not qualified to hold the office IMO.

QFT. The libs with rose coloured glasses don't get it, things really have changed all that much since 1960. despite the laws passed... the ability and continual play "the race card" by Jackson/Sharpton/etc doesn't help their cause.

Bill Cosby told the black community to take responsibilty and he now isn't real popular with them.....

Until the get off the doal, and really lift themselves up and do what it takes run their own lives, they will always be looked down upon...
Unfortunately. they have kept it that way all by themselves.

The few figure-heads in media, politics isn't really enough. When as a whole the populate the major of prison, crime etc.

That's really weird cause I have never, ever received even one email like that. As far as I knew they didn't even exist.


*Edit* - I have liberal friends and family and I have conservative friends and family. Why is it that only the conservatives send me political emails? And how do I get on the mailing list for the libs? And are the liberal political emails as moronic as the conservative ones?

Well he does break down Americans into 17 different groups and "white" people aren't among them. Sounds like exclusion to me. So why would he include all those other groups defined by race and not "white" people?

Those are stupid reasons. There are plenty of good reasons to not want him in office.

I just looked at he's taken it down. I do notice under his issues section he includes women and not men. When will these "leaders" stop this crap. I also just read that he'll expand hate crime legislation. The crime is the crime. Murder is murder. Stealing is stealing. He also wants to expand the "War on Drugs".

When you say expand War on Drugs do you mean where he says "Expand Use of Drug Courts"? Just wondering, cause they're not the same thing and I don't see anything specifically mentioning War on Drugs.

So all blacks are disqualified because (at least in your view) many or a majority of them fit within your comments?

I agree. It is disappointing to hear that this still continues. Sounds like my grandad (RIP), he just couldn't get around the race thing.

If BHO had some more years under his belt at the national or executive level, I might actually consider voting for the guy. Too green and too idealistic for me right now. 2012 might be a different story though. This country does need to make a change but I am afraid that his prescription wont cure our disease. IMHO- BHO will toe the party line, no different than what we have right now in that respect. Change is just a slogan. We'll change from one sham artist to another

The problem lies within the people's representatives being the same old partisan guard year after year. More concerned about preserving and wielding power than preserving and wielding the will of the people. Friggin shame really.

You are correct. I read it wrong.
