    But yeah, you'll never convince the Faux news nutjobs of that.

      over the past 4 years since the neocon torture lovers were thrown out of office.

      Whereas before the 2008 election you would have several groups in each state... now you have 30.

      In just four short years.

      And, I'm not so sure that the blame should weigh so heavily just on a black man being President. It's far deeper than that.

      A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.

        A bad economy breeds desperate, angry people. The way America looks is changing very rapidly. The president's race is only part of it. Latinos are asserting themselves as a legitimate part of American society. Gays and lesbians are coming out of the shadows and being embraced. Women are saying they will no longer be relegated to the positions a man has chosen for them. At the same time, political divisions have hardened to a point that I dont think the country has seen at any time since before the Civil War. These are interesting times we're living in.
