Skip to comments.Country remains polarized with more differences on the horizon

The spitfire showdown between Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings and House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa last week underscored two prevalent themes woven through U.S. sociological fabric.
First, black men and white men remain polarized, perhaps more than ever.
Secondly, black men still feel a need to scream to be heard, and not just because the white guy controlling the panels microphone silenced his feed.
This United States ship lists in troubled waters. Our most recent disengagement reverts to a national election that raised Barack Hussein Obama into the White House in spite of his inability to gain major support from white male voters.
The presidents successful reelection made matters worse.
Republicans who had pledged to malign Obamas first term as assurance he could never complete agendas started, were impaled again as the president claimed a searing victory over Mitt Romney.
Issa vs. Cummings is in reality Issa vs. President Obama.
In fact, Republican lashbacks against almost any Obama initiative, law, program, etc. serve up as transference, a dislike of circumstance that requires their taking orders from a non-U.S. citizen.
Furthermore, many of us have limited experience with black bosses.
Most Washington, D.C. politicians, white or black, have never had to accept a black man as leader or boss. So, imagine how such a reversal of worlds plays in their hearts and minds.
Obama may be celebrated by 52 percent of voters but thats only two percent off a 50/50 split away from haters.
Internet comments highlight anti-Obama sentiment as almost any topic invokes our presidents name.
This phenomena would sound comical if not for such hatred shown toward President Obama.
Start an interactive conversation about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and almost instantly someone moves off topic with an around the world comment that New Jerseys governor was not responsible for American deaths in Benghazi.
Discuss Sarah Palin and Tea Party followers will distract with talks about Obama lacking the strength of Ms. Alaska.
The anti-Obama faction employs pit bulls like Ted Nugent to call our president a subhuman mongrel or offer an invitation for Obama to suck on my machine gun.
Right winger Bill OReilly continued his anti-Obama onslaught with a Super Bowl Sunday interview that skewered Obama with a disrespectful tone.
Since Rep. Joe Wilson compromised decorum with his shouted You lie while President Obama delivered a State of the Union address, criticism of the president has been a no holds barred affair.
This is not something weve seen before during a presidential speech, offered Norman Ornstein, a political scientist.
This is not a suggestion that all Obama detractors hold no legitimate opposing views but many Republicans fight the president on every word.
Plus, Obama shows no significant connection with the white male demographic having claimed just 1 out of every 3 votes in that category.
An admiration grows for Obama as he proceeds without attaching race to attacks but many of his supporters understand their candidates circumstance.
The showdowns and dust ups will continue as Obama moves toward lame-duck status.
As President Obama completes his second term, a mother of a successor appears on the political horizon.
Former First Lady Hillary Clinton may follow the first African American president into the White House
A first woman president will continue to showcase the greatness of these United States.
However, one can only imagine the fallout of such an achievement.
Men willingly accepting instructions from a woman after being guided for eight years by a black dude?
It is time for two separate countries. Free America and Socialist Amerika. A values driven nation. A lost nation. It is past time for vast change.
Bush hung/burned in effigy
The author a Leftist chicken-eating liar.
Did Cummings have an opportunity to make a statement during the course of this Committee hearing? YES
Does a Committee have the same rules as the House has during an open session? NO
Was Cummings simply grandstanding to make Issa look bad? ABSOLUTELY!
Barry compromised decorum by attacking the Supreme Court.
Who the heck is he talking about? I've had several black bosses. Some good, some not so good (just like the white ones).
Country has always been polarized, between Nashville and Bakersfield, and then Austin came on. What? Oh, never mind!
The author is a leftist troll. Every complaint he listed could be said about George Bush’s treatment over 8 years. The difference is Bush didn’t have the media stuck up his behind.
I thought some would get a kick outta that! LOL
As I’ve said to a few others, I disagree with fascists - skin color is irrelevant.
Racist, racist, racist, racist. Powerful insight. Not.
Did Issa apologize? Yes
Did the media condemn Issa? Yes
Did the media say anything when Waxman threatened to have Issa physically removed from the room? NO!
Yes, all of us remember the awesome respect the MSM gave Republican Presidents... /s
The most polarizing Preezy of the Sneezy evar!
Needs a “projectile vomiting for distance” alert.
Let there be no doubt that the contrived use of the “Bully Pulpit” applied to the Florida episode served its purpose.
Oh. So our differences don’t stem from opposition to Marxist/Communist ideology, and a desire for a preservation of our culture and traditional freedoms?
