  •  Asians as foreigners... (11+ / 0-)

    To add to number one--"Asian Americans have been cast as perpetual foreigners"--one of they ways Republicans tried to "other" Obama was by bringing up he wasn't born in America (or that Hawaii isn't real America).  The second was by pushing the idea that his political agenda was deeply influenced by the time he spent in Indonesia.  Hawaii has a large population of people with Asian ancestory, and Indonesia is in SE Asia.  So, yes, I'm sure a lot of Asian Americans took it personal that Republicans were vilifying Obama at their expense.
