Obama has yet to show he can consistently win a majority of racial groups beyond African Americans. He’s loses Hispanics and Asian Americans in addition to white voters, by similar 65-35 margins. Three separate races are voting for Hillary Clinton, and by similar numbers. One race is voting for Barack Obama, and in near unanymity. I don’t begrudge them that, and have even stated that I’m symphathetic.
I agree Obama and the lefty blogs are ignoring The Problem. But this is not a black and white thing. We need to stop lying about that. Has anyone bothered to ask if it’s an experience problem for the other three races, rather than a “black problem”? Obama could be white, brown, or pink and I still would never support him in a primary because he has no experience and has stated publicly that he was too busy running for president than to do his job as committee chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Europe (after decrying what is happening in Afghanistan, which is under his NATO oversight). The Wright issue doesn’t bother me and has no basis in my lack of any confidence in Obama’s leadership abilities.
I’m tired of the subtle attempts to paint me as a racist because I think its a joke that Obama wasn’t laughed off the stage. I didn’t think John Edwards was sufficiently experienced to be president either and he was second to the bottom on my list of Dem candidates.
