Barack Obama Is President Because He is Black
Political Realities ^ | 01/13/14 | LD Jackson

Posted on 01/13/2014 3:28:10 AM PST by LD Jackson

Barack Obama is President because he is blackThe title of this post is no great revelation. Anyone who follows politics, even halfheartedly, knows how much truth is in that statement. Barack Obama is President, not because of his qualifications, of which he has very few, but because of the color of his skin. Many of us have made that statement before, but we now have proof of that fact.

There is a new book coming out that is being previewed by several media outlets. It's title is HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton. The excerpt that is being used is called Hillary's Hit List and it tells of a list that was kept of the friends and enemies of the Clintons. It is especially specific when it comes to how Bill and Hillary Clinton felt betrayed by some of the people who failed to endorse her 2008 candidacy for President. Some of these people were supposed to be good friends of the Clintons, but history and circumstances got in the way.

As I was reading through the preview, I was not shocked to find evidence of how Barack Obama managed to win so many of the endorsements that should have gone to Hillary Clinton. What did surprise me was the openness with which the sentiment was displayed. The following quote is about Jim Moran, D-VA and Kris Balderston, one of Hillary Clinton's top aides. Part of the quote has been removed because of language concerns

Politico - For several months, Balderston and Elrod had kept close tabs on an even smaller subset of targeted members of Congress, who were still undecided after Super Tuesday. Because Hillary and her team made such an intense effort to swing these particular lawmakers in the final months of the campaign, they are the first names that spring to mind when Hillary’s aides today talk about who stuck a knife in her back and twisted it. For Balderston, the betrayal of Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) was perhaps the most personal. The two men were social friends in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, about six miles from campaign headquarters. They were even in the same book club. For months Balderston had casually pressed Moran about his endorsement. Moran played coy. He praised Hillary but came up short of promising an endorsement. Then, in January 2008, Moran left a voice message for Balderston: I’m all in for Hillary, he said.

Naturally, Balderston was excited. The courtship of delegates hadn’t been going well, and adding a new name to Hillary’s column was welcome news. But Balderston’s joy was short-lived. “What the ****?” he exclaimed a couple of weeks later as he read the news that Moran was set to endorse Obama. He called the congressman. “Do not ever call me again!” Balderston said. He stopped going to the book club. (“It’s an accurate account. But we’re friends again, and I plan on making it up to him in the 2016 campaign since I’ve always been in love with Hillary,” Moran said. “I simply thought that given the opportunity, it was too important that this country elect an inspiring black president.”)

I am no fan of Hillary Clinton and I am certain she would have been no better for the country, had she defeated Barack Obama and went on to become President in 2008. I can, however, see why she would have so disappointed. Many of the people she counted on to endorse her candidacy turned their backs on her and endorsed Barack Obama. The overriding factor in those endorsements was the color of his skin.

Stop and think about that for a moment. It was a potent combination. Barack Obama is good at reading speeches from a teleprompter. He is excellent at stirring up crowds and their fever pitch. He is a master at shedding blame and on top of that, he is black. According to the book, he was ratcheting up pressure on lawmakers, telling them they needed to get on the "right side of history". He can claim all he wants that is black skin had nothing to do with his winning two elections, but that's nothing but a lie and denial. He actively pursued that tact.

The results are plain to see. We now have had a community organizer as President for five years, based on the fact that he is black. Is it any wonder America is in the shape it is in?

So he was elected because he’s black. He won and was only half qualified.

Barack Obama Is President Because He is Black

Thanks be to low information voters.

And Hillary Clinton will be the next president because she is a woman. It does not matter that she has Benghazi blood on her hands; that she has questionable accomplishments as Secretary of State; that she is a Socialist, and that she has shady past. She will win.

The left wing conspiracy has successfully infiltrated and taken over our country, and is well on its way to creating world chaos.

It’s the whole Barry White mystique.

I have zero doubt that the single largest factor in his election was day-dreaming white women.

Sorry if I offended anyone, but if anybody has any facts to disprove it, I (and Obama!!!) am all ears!

Toss in a little bit of the-guy-on-the-corner with the shells and peas, and that covers all the bases.

The very same reason that establishment doesn’t criticize him or his policies, which have clearly failed by all measure. They are afraid as being seen as racist(s). The GOP-e would rather see the country collapse than to be seen as racist.

It was not because Obama was African American(?) but because he was more of a Liberal/Progressive than Hillary.

Hillary was boring, just as she is now. Very 90s and looks terrible with those stupid glasses. Obama was exciting (to the liberals) and he took the convention by a storm.

No, the Democratic party wanted to plunge leftward, and Obama was more Pro-Abortion and Pro-Socialist than Hillary. Obama attacked American Traditions (even not covering his heart for the Pledge of Allegiance) including attacking church goers, gun lovers, and those against gay marraige (God, Guns and Gays at San Francisco).

Hillary had failed to get nationalized healthcare, and Obama seemed more energized than her to foist it upon America.

Now that the Democrats have seen what Obama has wrought (Obamacare, Gays married in the military, etc.) and loved it. I doubt they can step back but instead promote immorality even more. They won't be able to hold back lest another Obama comes through and is more "Progressive" than they.

Yes. And here I was ready to vote for Herman Cain and those racist SOBs in the MSM and the Dhimmicrat party went out of their way to look for things against him, that they consider positive in a leftist pol.

It is likely that Hillary will be elected solely because she is, I use the word loosely, a woman.

“He’s president because he ran against establishment Republicans like McCain and Romney.”

It started before that; Hillary was beating him in primaries (where votes are counted) so they gave him the caucuses (where “enthusiasm” is counted). Hillary supporters sucked it up and voted for him anyway...

That got him the nomination. What got him the election was the fact that he ran against two bad moderate Republican candidates instead of two conservative candidates.

Affirmative-action primaries...no sympathy for Hillary, though; she was consumed by the beast she helped build.

McCain had nothing to offer Americans in terms of the future, and wouldn’t fight; Romney was beaten by the media. I’m no fan of either of them, but either would have been better than this...

Barack Obama Is President Because He is Black told everyone he is black.

I suspect this is the REAL REASON he will not reveal his BC.

We all know he's not Constitutionally qualified. That's no big secret. We don't care even that he wasn't born in the USA.

But what happens when we find out he's not even BLACK???

I know there is a lot of truth in this article, because I personally know some people who voted for him for just that reason (the most common comment, paraphrased, was “America needs to move forward; and a black man in the White House will prove that”).

I can almost forgive those idiots for voting for The Won in 2008 — almost. They were so blissfully naive, so emotionally swindled. And the GOP ran the absolute WORST possible candidate against him.

But, there is absolutely no excuse for anyone voting for him in 2012. Everyone who voted for him in 2012, with his abysmal track record, knew just who and what he was, and therefore they agreed with him and what he was doing to the country. For those people, I have utter contempt, and I will curse them to my dying day for what they wrought upon my beloved America.

McCain and Romney ran their campaigns no differently than if they were secretly working to get Obama elected without being too obvious about it.

Obama was the perfect person to put in power for the left to greatly advance the communist agenda.

We see it, we point it out, and yet it doesn’t stop it from being used -

any attempt to criticize or thwart the leftist agenda while Obama is president is disparaged as “racist”,

and even those that might be persuaded by our arguments are fearful of being painted with that brush, so they go along with it.

Or, because Walmart Shoppers (Americans) have decided that casual Friday is acceptable every day in the oval office. Obama was not only the first mulatto president he was also the first Walmart president. As the standards in the lifestyle of Americans plummet so do the standards for elected officials

Exactly! It will be a repeat of Obama. All the lemmings wanting to be ‘part of history’ will vote for her because ‘its time’ for a woman president. Just like it was ‘time’ for a black one.

Obama’s “election” has forever altered my opinion of blacks. And, it’s not a positive opinion. Obama has created more race problems than I can ever recall. Seems to have set our country backwards of more than 50 years with regard to race.

You are right but you don’t actually prove your point. Because the secret is not some Morans (!) in Congress but the voters and theentire country where it is an everyday stigma to admit to disliking a colored person. That stigma, and the unwillingness of those hurt by his policies to go to the polls because of the fear of facing it, is how we got him back in 2012.

Many of the people she counted on to endorse her candidacy turned their backs on her and endorsed Barack Obama. The overriding factor in those endorsements was the color of his skin.

Causation's a tricky thing. Obviously, Obama wouldn't have been a successful candidate if he were White. He didn't have the record to run on. So race is always in the background and you can't get away from it.

But hard-headed Democratic politicians didn't pick Obama just because of race. Being a fresh face -- not being a Bush or a Clinton or a McCain -- had a lot to do with Obama's getting elected as well.

Obama would relish this. HIS FINAL SOLUTION COULD THEN BE IMPLEMENTED.
The next two elections will clarify what has to happen.
