By the way, the only people who have ever said that "if you disagree with Obama you're racist" are conservatives trying to speak for liberals. That's not to say that there's not a lot of racism out there, as well as claims of all sorts of reasons that we voted for the guy other than the real reason. But most liberals can distinguish racism from partisanship or ideology differences. The "take our country back" crap, and the "real America", and the claim that he's "leftist and radical" (he's moderate), that's racist.
When people say "take our country back" and "leftist and radical", I believe they are paraphrasing ideas such as stop the out of control spending, and enough with the government giveaways. Hardly racist. Not everyone who isn't liberal is a redneck cracker.
