Why do republicans lose so miserably to a black president, Obama ?
When he was first elected, we saw very very 'reactive' whites bombarding into his town meetings. Mostly these republicans were poor chaps and it really #$%$ people off seeing poor whites trying to 'protect' super rich folks talking about tax relief for the super rich.
Obama had his hard time, he knew that. He had Ted Kennedy to help him along. Then, Ted left.
(A black bus driver in DC told me about the much needed Ted's support, it takes to realize even common black man in the street can understand national politics )
4 years of struggling with racism. Whatever he said, white racists will oppose.
Obama has been a president in name only.
Only after the re-election, or when republicans purposely made USA lose AAA rating by their hostage tactic.
People lost faith in the republicans.
Obama now has it all. He gets the support of the people.
Boehner and crazy 'Teabaggers know their political capital is near BK.
Whatever Obama says goes.
