AN OPEN LETTER TO OBAMA VOTERS
Breitbart.com ^ | Matt Barber

Posted on 10/21/2012 12:59:44 PM PDT by jimluke01

Did you vote for Barack Obama in 2008? A lot of people did – obviously.

What a time. There’s still room for improvement, but what a testimony to just how far we as a nation have come in terms of racial harmony, tolerance and diversity.

Only decades earlier a man like Barack Obama – a black man – couldn’t even drink from the same water fountain as a white man, let alone become president of the United States. A hundred years prior to that, and he may well have been counted another man’s property.

On Nov. 4, 2008, millions gathered at the ballot box to prove, once and for all, that, in large measure, we as a nation have healed from our disgraceful, self-inflicted wounds of racial abuse, bias and division.

That we could elect an African-American to lead the free world is indeed a very good thing.

We just happened to elect the wrong African-American.

You ought to more concerned about write-in voters.

If they spell like you do, their "votes" will be even MORE meaningless.

Matt Barber is spot-on, as usual! I like the former Obama voter Matt quoted: “Because I refuse to be that stupid twice.”

These voters read Breitbart’s site?

I don’t see how anyone could vote for Obama. Ever. The evidence he was far left Soviet-style government first black liberation theology was out there with any research. All hype from the MSM and no substance.

Yep, all that is now known was available since long before the 08 election but low info and no class idiots were taken in by this clown posse. See Evelyn Pringle’s ‘Operation Board Games and Curtain Time for Obama’....for everything known about ChiTown Obama and friends!

These men blow open what the ADMN is trying to hide about the Benghazi attack. Lt. Col. Tony Shaefer, Former CIA operatives, Gary Berntsen & Mike Baker. They confirm what Col. David Hunt initially said about worldwide listening posts hearing the cries for help from Benghazi.

"We just happened to elect the wrong African-American."

Ain't that the truth. If this black man ever runs for president, he's got my vote:

The tragedy of Obama’s term is that he has made it more difficult for true Americans such as Alan West to overcome the damage to our psyche.

Obama truly was the first ‘celebrity’ President. He is more comfortable on talk shows and is familiar with ‘pop culture’ personalities.

I have more taste than BO - and you have more intellect;)

True story - when I was a kid, there were still "colored-only" and "white-only" water fountains in parts of the country.

One day, as the story goes, while my mom, brother, sister and I were waiting at a bus station, I got up and got a drink out of one of the water fountains. A man nearby quickly told my mom that I was drinking out of the "colored-only" water fountain.

"It's ok," my mom replied, "he can't read!"

It's one of my favorite stories about my mom.

I believe that's true, but only to an extent. People on our side love Allen West, and would vote for him to assume a higher office in overwhelming numbers. And there are other conservative blacks in our stable who would find similar support on the right.

It's the left that is consumed with identity politics. I think our folks are a whole lot smarter than that. The proof is that we on the right disagree with Obama because of his politics, and not because he's got the 'wrong' paint job.

Indeed. As I was just telling sodpoodle, folks on our side see the content of West's character, not the color of his skin. It's one of the chief distinctions between us and the left.

We may despise Obama, but we're not the sort of knee-jerk people who won't give another black man a chance because he happens to be of the same race. If that man supports and believes in the tenets that built this nation, then we'll support him (or her) fully.

Too bad that the Americans who elected him were dazzled by his appearance and knew nothing about his philosophy or history. Thanks MSM.

[ Only decades earlier a man like Barack Obama – a black man – couldn’t even drink from the same water fountain as a white man ]

THE TRUTH IS.. Obama is no blacker than he is white..

He is half white raised by whites, educated by whites, given affirmative action by whites, even elected by mostly whites.. several times..

He is no blacker than Rev Wright is.... who is also half white.. He says he’s black assumes a black persona and manipulates white race guilt as skillfully as Jackson or Sharpton maybe even more..

He is a con artist and bunko man.. a huckster.. one of the white Hoodrats in Chicago.. he is not what he says he is.. and never was.. Louis Farahkand is also half-white.. impersonating a black man.. There is much of this going on.. IT SHOULD STOP..

If anybody should be for a colorless society it should be mulattos.. They are NOT.. They generally use their color and lack of color like political artists to paint pictures that are CARTOONS..

Yeah, but he's a blogger.

Who will know it besides his immediate family?

You know, LOTS of people are right yet they don't lower themselves to blogger status.

Please let's not pretend that anyone reads that poop.

It's a dang BLOG after all.

There surely must be.

If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you're not racist, you now must vote for Romney to prove you're not stupid.
