    "The Associated Press needs to pick a story and stick to it.
    In the last several days the AP has told us that more people would rather have a beer and watch football with Barack Hussein Obama than McCain. They have also informed us that more people would rather have their children taught by Barack Hussein Obama.
    So then how is it that the only reason anyone would not vote for Obama is because of race?"

    That is what I was wondering also. Lates face it. Without white voters, Obama would not have gotten as far as he did. Blacks are only 18% of the population. Its not about race. It about ideology.

    If racism costs Obama this election, It will be his own overt racism that does the trick.

    The last Democrat to get over 50% of the white vote was LBJ. So, it was not racism that caused a majority of white Americans to not vote for McGovern, Carter (either time), Mondale, Dukakis, Clinton, Gore, or Kerry. The Black population has fallen as a share of the electorate, being replaced by Hispanics, who also vote Democratic, but not in the proportions of the Black community. Their 95% support of the Democratic party is the only racial identity politics in the US.
