Am I the only person that sees that America is not ready to elect a black man to President?  I’m ready.  If Obama gets the nomination, I will vote for him, but I doubt very seriously that my father and I can singlehandedly elect someone to President.  If we don’t want another republican in office, we should not nominate Barack.

  1. Sure he can win among democrats. I’m worried about what he’ll do in a general election. I like Obama. I really do. I’m just afraid that we’ll end up with Mccain if run Obama. Winning the primaries does not make you electable during the general election. It simply makes you electable during the primaries/caucuses, which are attended by their OWN party.

  2. today another loser judas edwards endorses hussein obama. so what? men are just afraid from a strong woman. that’s all folks

  3. I still say an old white guy will get elected until further notice (i.e., a change in voting behavior beyond what we have seen since the election of George Washington).

    I want HRC to win, but that is not going to happen.

  4. I didn’t say NEVER. I said not yet. I could be wrong. I hope I am. I don’t think I am though. I don’t know where you live, but I know that Arkansans won’t vote for a black man and neither will most working class people, which explains Clinton’s wins in states such as West Virginia, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania. I have no problems with Obama. I have problems with Republicans and since I don’t think we are YET ready in America to elect a black man as president, we should not nominate one. Again, I didn’t say NEVER. I said NOT YET. I don’t know how I can be more clear about that.

  5. Carson, if you’re gonna let a silly little fact affect your thinking you do not have a future on the Internet.

    “not yet” is the argument that never comes… it’s simply bureaucrat-ese for “never”.

    and I grew up in the bootheel, so I know very well about the racism you must see.

    If you have a racist friend
    Now is the time, now is the time for your friendship to end

    Be it your sister
    Be it your brother
    Be it your cousin or your, uncle or your lover

    If you have a racist friend
    now is the time, now is the time for your friendship to end

  6. Well hey, I guess in my chemical research, I should probably just assume that just because something has NOT YET happened means never. I mean really. we have yet to find a cure for AIDS, cancer, diabetes, the common cold, so on and so forth, so I guess we should just stop looking.

    By the way, please don’t think this means I hate you. In fact, loomisnews, I find you refreshing. Most people run away from arguments. I relish them so long as their not actually harmful or mean. Oh, please no more poems. I’m not racist. I just like people. All people. Except for stupid people, but they’re not a race.

  7. loomisnews,

    Racism will always be here, but Virginia’s support of Wilder and the popularity of Obama marks the fact that there are enlightened people who believe in progress and liberalism. I am an idealist, though I realize the world must have stupid and unenlightened people. They see progress as bad. They are the reason why I am so smart.

  8. Kristi, you say you are ready to elect a black president. Is that the main reason, that he is black? It may just be the way you said it, but I see this a lot. People are all excited about Obama not because of his ideas (does he even have any?) but because he is black. I thought we were supposed to look at the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

    BTW, I think the U.S. IS ready for a black president.
