    I believe it is clear that Michelle Obama considers herself black before she considers herself American.

    Can the same be said of Barak?

    Obama is only half black, and it is so obvious where his priorities lie. IMO he is neither.

    This is a question that is designed to focus on ethnicities that have nothing to do with the type of dangerous policies that Obama would bring to this nation. This type of questioning makes me absolutely sick.

    If you refuse to confront difficult questions concerning your choice of candidates for President, it doesn't speak well of your decision making process.

    Obama tries to be all things to all people. That is the problem I have with him, after his pro choice stance. At least Clinton is who she says she is. But then, such is politics.

    Dont worry. I am sure that Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and others of their ilk will keep Obama in line. He better " get down with the struggle" if he knows what is good for him.

    This is not a difficult question it is a racist one that does not belong on this forum. Ask a question about policy not about skin color.

    Race relations and how that effects policy is a part of every election for President.

    Just keep your eyes closed and try not to think about it if it gives you a headache.

    ==Only if all the Presidents to this point have been white before they have been American or if "American" is being defined as "white". Americans come in many different races.

    I am far from being an Obama supporter and my eyes are wide open.
    BTB, The belittlement of mental aptitude is uncalled for. It's is my stomach that is turned upside by the smell of a racist attitude.

    No comment was made concerning your "mental aptitude".

    It is you faulty "smeller" that is causing your stomach problems.

    Maybe someone should start a poll as to whether carpro considers himself to be conservative before considering himself an American. :smilewinkgrin:

    Go ahead. I'll vote in it. :thumbs:

    But my vote will be the truth. Yours will be purely your opinion.

    Consider the mess that experienced white presidents have gotten us into since WW2. Any other color might be an improvement.

    Moderators, why do we have such a poll still up here?? While the poll is not "racist" per se, it certainly has, by its implications, the ability to evoke such a response!

    i agree with you Ed but unfortunately this is the way many americans are voting this time around. I've heard others drawing the gender line. You would wish we as Christians could look past the surface of a person.

    This thread is a loaded bomb...
