To add to that, Obama received a greater percentage of white vote than did Kerry also.

I know in California, the max benefit is 450 per week, but you have to have been at a job for a few years, and made a substantial amount of money to receive the max benefit. That being said, it only lasts about 6-8 months.

McCain just ran a terrible campaign and the numbers prove it. The only group that he won were people over 65 (and he only won that demographic by 10pts).
So instead of regurgitating the ignorance of the people in your circle of influence, you should look at the data and present better arguments.
95 % of minorities that I asked that voted for O had said he had their vote because of color, to some extent... and the other 5%, lied...

to deny that his race did not get him in would be stupid..

I could listen to about the first 2 minutes, then I had to shut him off. Standard rhetoric "we're losing liberties" "the gov't only should take care of the general welfare" ... yada yada ...

Not sure why Obama "fans" had to see this.

Also, back when I was a young lil' whipper snapper, we didn't call people who supported the president "fans".

I'm sure even you recognize that your "survey" is flawed on many levels, but just for grins let's accept your premis that Obama won the presidency soley on the basis that he's black. That makes McCain the first presidential candidate in American history who lost an election because he is white! Pretty rediculous.

The current Racial and Ethnic demographics of the US are as follows:

White - 66%
Hispanic/Latino - 15%
Black/African American - 14%
Asian - 5%

100% of Blacks alone don't have the numbers to elect a president.
100% of Blacks plus 100% of Hispanics don't have the numbers to elect a president without white votes.
Even if 100% of all minorities combined voted for Obama that wouldn't be enough to get him elected without white votes.

The demographics are slowly changing but it's mathematically impossible for minorities alone to elect an American president today.

So, I guess all the white people who voted for Obama are racist AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE???

Very true, the word "fans" now works with Obama supporters since this last election seemed like a popularity contest ala american idol. A majority of people who voted for Obama did so in hopes of change, ask them what he planned to change and how he was planning on doing it, then sit back and count the seconds of silence.

Curious why would Allen West be any more qualified to run the country then Obama?

Doesn't Obama deserve a little more time to turn things around?

The funny thing is some of you are starting to sound more like us Canadians. We always find a way to complain about our elected officials while we generally view the american people as ones who will stand by their president no matter what.

Must be that expansion of Tim Hortons coffee into the us.

In my eyes, the only thing Obama has the ability to do is deliver an outstanding speech via teleprompter.

Obama wasn't exactly over-qualified himself.

No. He's on track to do absolutely nothing he claimed he could do. His platform was a bunch of garbage, and Americans were too stupid to see that for themselves. They saw Oprah and every Hollywood hippie supporting him, and that's all they needed to shore up their support. He's missing his mark badly.

What country doesn't bitch about their elected officials when they're this embarrassing? I liked Bill because he seemed like a pretty level-headed guy. So he was a bit of a fugly girl player, but that shit was blown way out of proportion. Bush II was a moron. Nobody will ever argue with you on that one. Bush I wasn't terrible.

The nature of our bipartisan government is what is going to always have half of America bitching about the President for one reason or another. Lately, though, it seems to be a lot more than half.

I wouldn't care for him as our President, but we do need more people like him out there helping others (like this woman) get their heads out of fantasy land and back in touch with reality.

I would say that with past Presidents, you are correct, this wording would be inappropriate. With Obama, however, it fits nicely. There is a reason for the glut of ridiculous Obama merchandise, and a reason for the cult-like following (compared to past Presidents).

Also, based on everything that has been portrayed in media and otherwise, I would say that a greater percentage of people that voted for Obama know very little to nothing about politics compared to past Presidents both democrat or republican. Would you not agree that as a whole, Obama supporters/voters were less educated politically than those of past Presidents?

What a sample size you have there. The problem must be really widespread
I'm pretty within 5 seconds, i could find a video of a dumb clinton, kerry, cheney (although it may harder ) bush, mcCain supporter as well. `

Yeah but could you find anything that asinine? That fkn circus of an "election" was embarrassing to anyone who had half a sense of what this guy could/couldn't deliver on. Even the politically savvy who did vote for Obama either had to block out certain parts of his campaign, or they voted for him simply because he was better than the other guy.

Just enlist the help of the google. Use the search string of "crazy mccain fans". Feel free to substitute the word mccain for any recent candidate in this youtube age.

Are you suggesting that Obama was the only recent candidate that whose campaign had embishments? Because i really would find that funny. Whether you like him or not, the Obama campaign was one of the best run campaigns in recent memory. And McCain had one of the worst ones.

No; every campaign is full of embellishments. It was shocking how ridiculous some of BO's claims were, but even more shocking was the cult-like following he gathered based on these outlandish and ridiculous claims.... The Obama campaign was run perfectly; the objective is to win. They saw that feeding the American public what they wanted to hear was working, so they ran with it. The promoted BO's popularity and took full advantage of how sick and tired everyone was of Bush (and therefore the Republican Party). Celebrities piled on the bandwagon in record numbers, further distorting the purpose of the election.

It turned into a popularity contest. BO's people recognized it and ran with it. McCain's campaign was one of the biggest train wrecks I've seen in a while. If you want to win, you have to play the game right. One side did, and one side didn't.

Now we're all fucked anyway.
