Obama can rightly and unfortunately be called our first affirmative action president. Any white person with his credentials and experience would not have survived the first round of primaries in 2008. And this lack of real world experience has almost destroyed our country, which a second term will undoubtedly finish the job. I hope the brilliant blacks like Mr. Elder, Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, etc. can get heard in the black community (so few seek out their opinions) to prevent the inevitable racism accusations and possible civil unrest from occuring with an Obama defeat.
