Obama Accuses Voters of Bigotry

At least give him credit for honesty. Appearing on "The View," the President attributed his struggles with re-election to the bigotry of the American electorate
. His exact quote?
"When your name is Barack Obama, it [election]'s always tight".
For the President's slur on the American electorate to have any truth, former Obama voters would only now having to be digging deep to find formerly-untapped reserves of racial or ethnic animus that they somehow suppressed in 2008 . . . rather than simply being citizens who are tired of the manifold failures of the Obama presidency.
But what's most unsettling about the President's wholly-unwarranted, knee-jerk resort to accusations of racial bias is what it tells us about his thoughts and his character . . . a manifestaion of a victim mentality unbecoming in a US president.
In fact, it would be far more accurate to say that "when your name is Barack Obama, it's never tight" -- at least until now, when he's finally stayed in an elected position long enough for voters to assess his performance there.
