I think a lot of them have figured out that Barry isn’t “black” as they know it. Barry is a big Marxist first. “Black” is further down his list.

Does that mean that these black voters are racist, if they are not going to vote for Obama???? I thought liberals have told us that it is racist if you don’t support Obama.

It’ll be a cold day in hell before they vote Republican. The black voters will stay home and sit it out if they’re unhappy, rather than voting against their messiah.

Actually, this sounds like a double-whammy against zer0.

Romney gets 20% and undecided gets the other 4%, so a significant number go ‘R’.

And, the double whammy? Not only do 20% go ‘R’, but many WILL stay home, depressing total % vote, thus lessening the effect of the apparent 76%.

And many of these citizens are devout Church going respectable citizens. Perhaps they question his devotion? So many liberals leave Church in its place on Sunday.

Whites voting in 08 were suggested vote for Obama proved they were not racists. Can we suggest African Americans prove they are not racists or bigots and vote for Romney?

A hero is only a hero until he becomes an embarrassment, then he is no longer a hero. Many blacks are beginning to realize that Obama is costing them more than he is worth.

I’m seeing a bumper sticker in your post.

Now I’ll prove I’m not stupid and vote Romney in 12

His margin of victory was tiny in NC last time so it is hard to see how he can win the state this time.

I was amazed he took NC in 2008 when Kerry couldn’t carry it even with Edwards as his running mate. Wasn’t even close in 2004.

First it shows me that many blacks are coming home to church before they come home to 'black' on this one. Obama truly is the 'new' black and they don't want it. No way no how are you going to get the black church to turn on themselves and their rock and go the new black. I think we are hearing a large, general sigh of relief from the black communities and it WILL grow.

We can thank Obama for setting God fearing blacks--that once supported Obama--hearts straight with God here.

Secondarily we are finally seeing the chink in the chain of color support and so are the blacks that probably for sometime have been wanting out. Yet weren't so comfortable saying so. Now there is permission and they can always blame it on the fact that Obama is supporting gay marriage. Which is also true in addition that the blacks are suffering financially too.

A lot of blacks don't trust the guy either.

And Obama’s “coming out” in favor of same-sex marriage did not set well with many in the Black Community. There was a post on here last week with the picture of a Black lady on a street corner in VA, with a Bible in one hand, and a sign saying: “Don’t Vote for Obama”.

He will get the same percentage of the Black vote that he got in ‘08. But, he won’t get the same number. Blacks might not vote Republican, but they will sure as hell stay home.

“It’ll be a cold day in hell before they vote Republican. The black voters will stay home and sit it out if they’re unhappy, rather than voting against their messiah.”

Had a black Vietnam vet in the other day. He voted for Reagan, not sure about Obama. Said he will listen to each person during their debates and then make up his mind. That is probably not the norm for very many people.
But it says that Obama won't get the blind support he got 4 years ago.

They woke up and discovered that the dream is over. Obama dosen't have any pixie dust that sets us free.

They do know that today, there is to much more week left at the end of the money than it was 4 years ago.

Yep, he is losing A-A votes. Probably from 99% to around 97.5%.
Never forget “Black Pride” trumps good sense every time. Barry losing black votes is nothing more than a wet dream to the Republican Hierarchy,

I think (as I’m sure we all do) that Daily Kos is scared to death of repeating these results. Mustn’t mention the elephant in the living room, you know. Just like black on white crime.

Larry Elder is going to have to increase his ‘10 Things You Can’t Say In America’ list.

Yep. My siblings are all married professional people with homes, kids, good jobs, college educations, 401Ks, investments, etcetera, and they ALL voted for Obama.

Last time I was home to visit in 2010, they'd all lost the Hope because of the Change. I have a strong suspicion that most of them will be busy cutting the grass or some such on election day.

Good points, and GOP moderates better get a clue, too. Social matters still...matter. A clear majority of Americans have not bought into sodomite marriage. We all know President Obama was ALWAYS in favor of homosexuality, but he went too far. Outside of the media and some small areas of the country, Americans are willing to tolerate homosexuality, but we don’t applaud, encourage, or consider it normal. Most normal people would not be happy or even neutral if their son or daughter came out.

Oh, yes he will. The only difference is this year a few of them might sit it out.

What I still just can't get over is simply imagine what it would be called if there was a White candidate that received 90% of the White vote..... (cough...racism ...cough....cough)

Let’s not forget that Obama ran as a moderate. We FReepers were better informed, but most voters only saw the media’s propoganda. For example, I bet most FReepers know President Obama was always in favor of homosexual rights. He was deceptive during the election. He had to be, because as California’s gay marriage vote proved, a good number of blacks do not buy into Hollyweird’s anything goes culture.

You're not racist if you only vote against the white half of Obama. And because you can't vote it halves, blacks should just say they couldn't vote for the White guy Obama turned out to be.

If you voted for him because he was half black in ‘08, vote his half white out in ‘12!

True, but he allowed his loose lipped VP to box him into a corner, and 'evolved' his position on gay 'marriage' over night.

Now, some are of the opinion that this was all orchestrated to give Obama an excuse to publicly come out in favor of homo nuptials, but he and his handlers would have to be nuts to think that his black supporters would buy into that, under any pretense. He's supposed to be the boss, remember? How is it that his goofball VP can force him to adopt a position which he knows is going to sour the mood of the black community?

I'm sorry, but even the numbskulls in the White House have better instincts than that. Especially when it comes to his core constituency. No - in this case, I think it played out exactly as it appeared. Obama caved because 'Stand Up' Joe knocked him into that corner. He would never have gone there in an election year, otherwise.

I don’t know if we will ever know what caused Obama to come out, but as a political strategy, deceptive though it was, his “evolving” stance was a good one. It gave socially conservative blacks enough wiggle room to support him. Now any black who professes to be a Christian has no excuse. A vote for Obama is a vote for sodomite rights and religious oppression.

I started composing my reply as soon as I read the article. Before I posted I read the thread.

A little different interpretation of what you posted:

What I was going to say: “2008, voted for him because he is half black. 2012, voting against him because he is half white.”

Race over everything.

So, will it be obama or biden that announces the first White House Homosexual wedding?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Joseph Robinette “Joe” Biden, Jr. born November 20, 1942) is the 47th and current Vice President of the United States, serving under President Barack Obama.

It proves how out of touch Obama really is. He had no clue how supporting gay marriage would effect Blacks, much less church-going. Obama is getting creamed in Sunday sermons.

He always understood that he couldn't afford to cross that line with blacks. There was nothing for him to gain in coming out in support of gay 'marriage', and with so many other things working against him in this election year, he had everything to lose by offending his most dedicated voting block.

This was an error of monumental proportions on his part, and proves to me that Obama is just as ignorant and incompetent as we've often thought he is.

Then again, you sort of have to ask yourself; if Obama knew he'd lose black voters if he sided with the radical gay agenda, why did he do this? Is he deliberately trying to throw the race to Romney?

Why did Obama come out for sodomite marriage? That’s an excellent question. You could chalk it up to something as simple as political incompetence. Personally, I think it was just as foolish to force the contraception mandate. Why not wait until after the election? It’s also possible lead Democrats are as out of touch with their base as ours are with us.

Sometimes I hear people like Jeb Bush and wonder how they could be so wrong about the Tea Party and conservatives in general. Maybe they only associate with like minded politicians? How many times do we have to tell them to cut some programs, reduce regulation, don’t give illegals an amnesty, stop with the unilateral truce on social issues, quit trying to act as Team USA World Police, etc? I wonder if the moderates agree with us on ANY of these issues. It’s not like we have to accomplish everything at once. Just start moving the ball down the field to the right!
