It's pure racism. Obama is basically Bush junior, same policies, but they love Bush and hate Obama. Only one thing is different.
Thanks again for confirming that there is absolutely no point in talking politics with an Obama supporter.
I somehow doubt that the passage of "BushCare" would have caused Lefties to celebrate in the streets like they did when ObamaCare was passed. I doubt Bush would have passed Dodd-Frank if he'd had another 4 years in office or the new Consumer Protection bureau.
Where Obama did keep Bush policies in place, it's because no rational person, given the information, would have changed them, i.e. they were the right policies.
Ideas are not bound to specific races, so opposing an idea isn't the same as racism. Unless you are saying that the ideas Obama has are somehow "black" ideas. Is that what you are saying? Because from where I sit, all of Obama's ideas were developed in the 19th and 20th centuries by a bunch of European white dudes who called themselves "socialists" or "social democrats". Maybe if you cracked open a history of ideas, you'd know that, but, of course, it's much easier to throw accusations of racism at people.
