    MOST BLACKS PROBABLY VOTED FOR OBAMA, BECAUSE OF HIS RACE. BETWEEN THAT MORON, PALIN, AND THE ABOVE MENTIONED POST, MCCAIN DIDN'T STAND A CHANCE. NOW WE ALL KNOW THAT OBAMA IS A TERRIBLE PRESIDENT. THE ULTRA CONSERVATIVES, CALL ROMNEY, OBAMA LIGHT. HOWEVER, MITT KNOWS HOW TO TURN AMERICA'S ECONOMY AROUND. HE'S THE ONLY ONE FOR THE JOB.

    I'm a Libertarian white guy who worked for, donated and voted for Barack Obama precisely because he is black. And I'm proud of it. African-Americans needed to hear that this country has evolved and race was no longer relevant. After Obama was elected I saw an enormous sense of pride in the black community. Dr. King's dream was becoming reality even if less than perfect. I'm voting for Ron Paul this time around. In those infamous words of G. W. Bush, " Mission accomplished".

    I did not vote for Obama, not because he was black, it was what he preach while running for President. He made so many promise that would have been a miracle in it self. Why do we need a bigger and stronger police force than our military. The FBI, CIA has done a wonderful job all these years.
    Now it has come to pass that he has disrespect of the Constitution.

    I did not vote for Obama becaude he was a he was black. It was what he was going to do and promise free stuff with a civilian police force bigger than our military. To me that is a take over of our freedom. Now it is coming to pass that he has disrespect the constitution.

    Almost every US President has been a Christian, including Bush(s) and Obama.

    How is this any different than the idiots who said they voted for Bush b/c he was Christian?

    Mr. Jackson, due respect, but I don't think the percentage of blacks in America can vote any black person in office. The actual fact is that if any one can profer solutons to peoples challenges, he/she will be voted for. Having the right kind of team to actualize the lofty ideas is another matter all together.
