What If Obama Were White?
World Net Daily ^ | June 12th, 2012 | Mychal Massie

Posted on 06/12/2012 8:26:06 AM PDT by ReformationFan

For nearly four years, criticisms of Obama’s policies, lack of business experience and Marxist proclivities have been labeled as racists attacking him because he’s black. And, of course, he has done nothing to defuse those ridiculous allegations. But let’s flip these allegations over for a moment.

If a white man with no business experience of any kind, on any level, were elected president and his economic plan increased government spending, increased government intrusion into private business and increased taxes on the so-called rich – what would criticism of him be because he is white? If this same white president employed failed Keynesian economic strategies, which resulted in his increasing our total national debt more than the first 41 presidents combined, in less than three years of his first term in office – would criticism of him be because he is white? If this hypothetical white president were driving us off an economic cliff from which economists say there is no return, would criticism of him be because he is white?

If, in less than his first full term, this hypothetical white president, increased food-stamp spending 100 percent – would calling him “the food-stamp president” be because he is white or because he is a dismal failure? If the increase in defense spending and transportation spending accelerated 11 percent each in his first three years, if Medicaid spending increased 27 percent in his first three years, and if food-stamp spending increased to $110 billion in his three first years would calling him “the food-stamp president” be because he is white? If food-stamp recipients increased by more than 14 million people in his first three years, raising the total number of recipients to more than 46 million, would disapproval of his economic policies be because he is white?

The only reason he gets a pass is that he’s (partially) black. If he were white, the tar and feathers would have come out long ago. Chris Matthews ... “do you really think people would vote against the first black president for a second term?” ... makes ‘ya sick!

If he were white, conservatives would be just as opposed and more vocal. His black ancestry has allowed his supporters to attribute principled opposition to vile racism. This shuts down discussion and slanders the person opposed to his policies. Yet, it's all a con game. They know we didn't support Clinton and his socialistic policies for health care, for example. They know we don't agree with bigger government approaches. Yet, this McCarthyite slander works for them to quiet many people. Instead of saying we're communists to shut us up they say we're racists. That's their tolerance. That's their counter argument. That's their bludgeon to end diversity of ideas.

The Left/Democrat Socialists in this country judge a person first by their politics, followed closely by the color of their skin then their "protected class" status (e.g., female; homosexual; Muslim; etc., etc.). Based on the history of the past 50 years or so, qualities such as values, morals and principles are so far down their list so as to be considered essentially irrelevant.

Although only fractionally "black", Obama is far and firmly to the left, he "looks black" and he is easily molded to what the Democrat Socialist party leaders need ... by their calculation, he is the "perfect candidate".

Without these "qualifications", Obama would have no better chance at being president than does, say, Al Sharpton or the "Rev." Wright.

If he were white, he would have a father who looked just like Jimmy Carter.

Finally the media is seeing through his thin skin blackness right to the core of his stupidity and hatred for this country as it was founded.

Yep, according to the left, if 0bama were white, suddenly conservatives would be supporting his Marxist policies... or something like that.

And if a black conservative were running, we’d not support him, no matter how much we agreed with his policies, because he’s black...

yep, you really only have to think about a micrometer deep in order to be a lib.

Even less. Wright, Sharpton and JJ at least have the ability to make rhyme and display an occasional sense of humor.

I'm trying to remember a single incident when BO displayed a genuine sense of humor as opposed to making a flat-out lame attempt at it.

Ironically, Ubama's race and Kenyan communist background are handy excuses for his agenda of Marxism and back-door reparations. Many people shrug and say, "Well, yeah... what do you expect?" If Ubama was white, he would have no excuse and he would be roundly pilloried (and feared) for that same agenda.

Frankly, I don't think he could ever hold down a private sector job.

I picture him as a clerk at a south Chicago DMV office, slouching behind a "Next Window Please" sign.

As Obama’s pathetically failed presidency becomes obvious to the dumb people in our society, watch as the media suddenly ascribes “whiteness” to him, so they can pin his failings on his White half and keep the black half “sacred.”

Chris Rock started it last week:
