Obama deflects yet once again.

President Obama really hasn’t been doing so well.  We’re watching Obamacare train wreck happen right before our eyes.  We know more is to come and nothing is being done.  He’s presided over some of the most egregious examples of political retribution in US History.  His lack of leadership can be directly tied to the increase of Muslim Extremest groups such as Al Qaeda in the middle east.  Yet he’s quick to comment and create division in issues where the Federal Government has no business.  There’s so many examples of these that Senator Rand Paul created a list.  It’s because of all of this that his approval ratings are generously low. Yet, to President Obama, it’s because he’s black.

In an article posted on the New Yorker’s web site he’s quoted as saying:

“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president”

I’m sure there are a very few who are shallow enough to base their disapproval on the President’s actions on his race.  Of course, as the President acknowledges, his generous approval numbers are also heavily padded by the fact that he is black:

“Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president”

So, all he’s done is attempt rather weakly to deflect why the American public thinks he’s done a horrible job.  Instead of being a true leader and taking ownership of his administrations failures, he uses the Democrats standby:  Create racial divisions by playing the race card where there’s no or very little impact of racism.  In fact, as we have seen, Mitt Romney had more of a challenge overcoming the fact that he is Mormon than Obama had with the fact that he’s Black.  We’ve seen this time and time again from Democrats.  It’s just unfortunate that we see it from the most powerful office in the nation.  This just makes him a sore winner.

There’s reason why people call Obama a disgrace to the office of the President of the United States, and this is a perfect example.
