Skip to comments.Obama: Some People Dislike Me Because They Don't Like That I'm Black
Posted on 01/20/2014 5:12:57 AM PST by bestintxas
On Sunday, The New Yorker released an interview with President Barack Obama in which the president stated that his approval ratings had been suppressed due to racism. Theres no doubt that theres some folks who just really dislike me because they dont like the idea of a black president, Obama stated. Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because Im a black president.
Obamas current approval rating is down to 39 percent according to Gallup; his approval rating in the black community remains extraordinarily high, although it is significantly lower now than it was when he was re-elected.
Obamas overall approval ratings have tumbled coincident with the failed rollout of Obamacare, as well as his mishandling of the Syria and Iran crises. Obamas supporters have often suggested that political difficulties he experiences are attributable to generalized racial anxiety.

A complete shallow loser in any book.
No, you pos muzzie... I don’t like you because you are RED and you hate people like me!
I promise I would still hate him if he were lily-white!
Where’s that worlds smallest fiddle when you need it?
That’s the only reason that you have a 39% approval rating!
That is the understatement of BOTH centuries.
quote Theres no doubt that theres some folks who just really dislike me because they dont like the idea of a black president, Obama stated.
Actually that’s true, i’d say about 1-2%
quote Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because Im a black president.
Also true, i’d say about 30%
So yer black.
What else ya got???
Nothing else?? THAT’S IT?!?
There ya go.
USA elected him TWICE
that shows just how anti-”black” America is (doesn’t it?)
The pRes_ _ent is black and was elected and entrusted.
In response he has destroyed the concept of
“Equal under the Law”
and armed Enemies of the American people.
“So yer black.
What else ya got???”
He’s HALFRICAN, even his “birf” certificate says his race is a continent.Ha HAA what an idiot....
So.... his polls are going down because he’s getting blacker?
That’s right, people losing their health insurance that they like and have had for many years and being forced to replace it with insurance that costs 2-3x more in premiums and has a higher deductible had NOTHING to do with your low approval ratings. Keep telling yourself that, Obama.
I loath Obama for his red (Marxist) policies. Could not care less about his race.
no obama they don’t like you because you are trying to ruin us
This jerk keeps forgetting that he is as white as he is black. What say he then?
That’s all the left has - toss mud at the opposition (be it capitalism, Christianity, whatever), and then play the “poor me” victim card.
It’s a crying sin what Democrats have done to the black community.
It’s the Red not the Black.
Personally I don’t care if he is purple, orange or green, I dislike him for who he is not what color he is. Zero has done more harm to this once great nation than all the armies we have fought in history. He needs to be gone and “yes” I do hate him. I don’t judge him by the color of his skin but by his character......sounds familiar doesn’t it.
Here’s why a lot of folks don’t like, Bowbama:
The only person who didn’t like him because he was ‘black’ was his mother.
And just FYI,scooter,I despise the Kennedys (except JFK) about as much as I do you.
Like some cheese with that whine? Poooooor Baby!!
I don’t like his white half either.
It’s just that black Americans deserved a better first black president.
On the face of it, his comments concerning race and his approval are true, seem calm rational and considered. BUT he is the President of the United States. Completely inappropriate in that context. If he wants to be a distant aloof commentator fine. But he isn’t. He is The President who makes bad policy. He is a small vain man making excuse for bad policy decisions as an outcome of a foreign ideology and a confused outlook. Let Bush answer a question like that and the NYT decried him as ducking personal responsibility.
Dear Socialist Leader: I don’t give a care if your color is purple and gray. I don’t like you because of what you do, what you say, how you act, how you govern, what you have done to the country. You could be pink poccadotted and I could give a care less if you were a decent human being instead of a Muzzie loving homo.
Incredibly dumb-ass statement from a foreigner with a brain about as big as a flea. What a jackass.
How coincidental that this lie comes out the weekend of the MLK holiday.
During his first term, someone (I think it was Mark Steyn) wrote a brilliant piece satirizing how conservatives would have supported all of his government takeovers “if only he was white.” I wish I could find that piece again!
To Your Royal Highness King Barry:
There are plenty of totally valid reasons to dislike you, and none of them have anything to do with your skin color.
America is suffering from an epidemic of SRS (Sudden Racist Syndrome)!
Actually, Gallup has him at 86% among blacks. That reeks of racism.
Actually, his black family that wanted him aborted didn’t like him much either because his whiteness was going to taint their Kenyan bloodline.
That wasn’t the reason, but if he insists we can add it to the list. That probably would upset the black folks though.
On this Martin Luther King day, the Narcissist in Chief has to find/justify a reason that people hate him. Surely it can’t be because of his wonderful personality, astute governemnt policies, and his ability to bring people together in peace and harmony.
I don’t like his white half either!
He could be as white as my lily white Irish ass and I'd still hate what he's doing to this country. It has nothing to do with how he looks or his race, it's his extreme left politics and his destroying of our great nation with his policies and his love of socialism and his hatred of America that irks me about him.
You must be a "holler racism seminar" attendee. Are you drinking Koolaid with a tin foil hat? Are you serious?
I could care less why he thinks I despise him.
I don’t care how BLACK one is, I’s the PINKO/RED that I dislike.
I don’t hate him because he’s black. I don’t even hate him.
I just want him, and the millions of others like him GONE.
I want an AMERICAN president. One that loves his country and wants to preserve this nation, and its Constitution.
Really has nothing to do with his color, as much as he likes to think it does.
Michelle looks down on his white part too.
No, you’re half black, and that is still no excuse.
What a jerk.
I don’t even think he is black I think he is Arab
Isn't pulling out the "race card" a sign that someone is badly losing an argument -- right before they introduce "Hitler" or "Nazi" into the argument (Godwin's Law).
