If America was 100% caucasian, would Obama still have won either of the elections?

hypothetically speaking, just wondering if race played a big part in Obama winning

Report as

most likely, race played a big part in the race because Obama was going to be the first black president, its not like his policies mattered at all, the idiots just wanted him to be president due to the fact that he was black. so it wasnt that people played the race card in a way that said "obama shouldnt be president because he is black" but they said instead, "Obama should be president because he is black" and yes, i think that Obama would have still been elected under the 100% caucasian circumstances, there are just to many idiots running around

No hes not.

He won because he was the best candidate, not because he is black. That idiot predecessor of his, lost the popular vote twice, and still got in, because he won the right states. Only one other President has done that in our countries entire history. George W. Bush did it twice. The electoral vote needs to go. If you win the popular vote, that should be enough.

redsox, have you actually looked at his openly socialistic/communistic policies? he is a terrible candidate, on all fronts, ranging from foreign to domestic policy, and kaycee, considering we are talking about a hypothetical, and you overthought a simple thought process, the only idiot is you.

How stupid I sound? You're funny puke, because I made a valid point? 100% means everyone would be caucasian is the point I made. But if you can't do basic math It's pretty sad. Oh well keep cutting and enjoy yourself.

If he's a terrible candidate, why did he win twice? Just the facts, man. The only other Democrat to be re-elected, since FDR, was Clinton. Again just the facts.
Report as
Rainbow puke, you can go $&@k yourself. Because I was stating facts.
Report as
why did he win twice? i already told you why, because there are way too many idiots running around, just like there were when FDR was elected, and just like there were when Clinton was elected. all three have been terrible presidents on the wholesale, facts dont lie, you're right, and facts show that democrats being elected leads us further into the pit towards socialism and communism

FDR is horrible? You are a complete moron. Social Security would not exist, it was his baby. He also got this country out if the Great Depression, that the Republicans put us in. When Clinton left office, this country was in black ink for the first time in a very long time. Get your head out of your butt, and look at the facts.

please calm down.......I wanted Obama to win because Mr.McCain would've had the idiot as Vice President.I wanted him to win this year because Mr.Romney didn't seem like he cared about the American peoplw.I believe in Republicans but Republicans vary to much with each person.each party has pros and cons.........so just be tolerant of the others decision....do on to others as others would do onto you

Thx preppy boy! And captan, I can see where your hesitance was with McCain/Palin even though I still took my chances voting on them, but I truly believe Romney would've did GREAT things putting this country back together! And Ryan is a really intelligent man, won't be surprised one bit to see him running for president himself in the future!

The republicans only care about the wealthy. Keep that in mind.
Report as
haha, thats a funny joke redsox, and social security was one of the worst things to happen to this country, it has exponentially increased national debt, and caused more poverty in the united states, than it was worth
Report as
Social Security is a great idea, you moron. It allows people the ability to retire, which means they don't have to work until they die. It is money they payin themselves. You are paying for yours now. But, the spending if your fiscally irresponsible republicans, has bankrupted a system that the government borrowed from, that they shouldn't touch. Social Security hasn't bankrupted the system, the greedy politicians have. Do your homework before you run your mouth next time.
Report as
lol, considering all the spending in the last 4 years has dwarfed the entirety of the spending in bush's four, and all of that spending in the last four years has been from the dems, then you might want to reevaluate, social security has bankrupted the system, 90% of people dont get the oayout they were guaranteed, there are better ways to ensure retirement than social security
Report as
AH 2008,yeah my favorite year it was like the American Resisance,Obama as President,XBOX360,low taxes..........best days of my life mate,best years of my life [:)
Report as
Again, you idiot, Social Security has not bankrupted the system. Each person pays into their fund every paycheck. The greedy politicians borrowed from it. That money is not supposed to be touched, except for people's retirement, which is it's sole purpose. Not to be loaned to China, or wherever, those crooked Republicans sent it 2. Btw, Bush served 2 terms, not 1. And he had the largest deficit of any president in history. Do your homework.
Report as
you should probably check your facts, obama has spent more money in one term than both of bush's combined, and those greedy politicians borrowing from that money storage, is mostly the democrats, who have been shipping more and more money and jobs off to china, social security is a failed system, it doesnt matter why its failed, it has though

yeah, i used to, i did it differently though, i am a martial artist, so instead of cutting or something like that, i would intentionally do something wrong and it would result in something happening, like my knuckles breaking, and bleeding, or my shoulder dislocating so i had to pop it back into place, doing it through martial arts eventually made me stronger, and it made it so i could stop doing that, and now i've reached a peak skill level far beyond most people in their late 20s and early 30s, after i reached that peak, about six or seven months ago, i came to the realization that while harming yourself can be satisfying and appealing, there are better ways, ways that are more satisfying than the sight of blood, martial arts is my haven for both self defense and self control, it has yielded many opportunities for me to learn and grow, it is the one other thing, besides God, that has helped me rise from the ashes, and become something new and better, i hope you can find a way to do the same, because i know what its like, to feel like you're alone, and that the only option is to become self destructive. i feel for others like me, and i try to help them, compassion is in my nature after all.

Am not even gonna bother with you. You are so shallow minded. It is your crooked ass republicans, like, Romney, shipping jobs overseas. Romney did it when he ran his company. I get the social security thing, too. But again, your republicans, are behind takin money from the system. But, you are so blinded, you'll never see the truth. Continue to be blinded by those republicans, that only care for the rich. I am done dicussing this with you.

You ain't boy enough, let alone man enough, to put me in the dirt. Secondly, I was in grade school, when the alleged greatest president ever, borrowed from Social Security. You weren't even a twinkle in your daddy's eye, yet. You say I'm democrat biased, you are republican biased, and refuse to see what your party is doing to this country. Those idiots in Congress and the Senate, led by your republicans, keep lending money to other countries. Instead of fixing problems, here first, they help other countries out. Then, they increase taxes on the middle and lower classes, and give tax breaks to the rich, instead of having the rich pay their fair share. Now stick that in your pipe, and smoke it little boy.

oh believe me little one, i can put marshmallows like you in the dirt anytime, and again, considering the democrats are the ones who are now spending all the money, you really dont have much room to talk here buddy.

You must be talking about your manhood, little boy, or maybe little girl. And so the Dems control the House. The problem is ur idiots control the Senate, which overrides the House. Which is why Obama, can't get anything done. Btw, you lil 15 year old brat, I also suggest you learn to respect your elders. I have been on this earth a lot longer than you have. And you don't get anywhere in life, without knowing what you are talkin about. And another thing, if you get your so called news from Fox News, that would be why your info is incorrect. Fox News, is overrun by blowhards, similar, to Limbaugh, who talk just to hear themselves speak, without having facts in front of them.
Report as
hm, thats nice buddy, but while you may be my elder in years, you arent my elder in intelligence, i only respect those who have more intelligence than me, but to be honest, i dont give a rats @ss about how old you are, because you dont have more intelligence than me, you've proved that throughout this little conversation, and if you are so mature and wonderfully advanced in wisdom, then why are you arguing with a "15 year old brat"? shouldnt you be way to advanced to argue with such a low life as myself? apparently your intelligence is too low to think these things through.

All I can say is this: I watched his inauguration in one of my university's lecture halls and there were black women all over the place sobbing and moaning "hallelujah, oh lawd, hallelujah, we are saved" etc etc. I think that had a lot to do with him being black. I think a lot of black people voted for him because they thought he'd solve all their problems.

who's their? I'm black, I didn't think he would solve my problems, people need to solve their own problems. I have to still do the same thing everyday like most people and work. You don't know why they voted for him. Why did people who were not black vote for him? To solve "their" problem? You're answer was ignorant, I don't say "lawd" or "hallelujah" and neither does anyone in my family. Is that your stereotype of black people?

The historic based answer is hands down NO...just look at, for example, books. All history, text & the bible are written from the White MAN's perspective - there r so many incorrect studies, flat out wrong historical facts and many things just left out that are actually critical to our history- the history of all of us. That being said I don't think Obama would have or should have won this last election. No matter your race, gender, etc. EVERYONE votes based on their wallet and Obama has failed, and what is worse is what he is doing to our health system. He is looking at Europe, socialized medicine and has ruined the Medicare system. This country is too big for this program & it should have been left up to individual states - for someone claiming to try to resurrect the Middle Class he is destroying it - and last, what ever happened to the system of checks & balances? I TRULEY believe that this election should have been postponed due to the fact that the entire Eastern Sea Board was in a State of Emergency due to Hurricane / Super-Storm Sandy. People literally could not get out & vote - while there was no precedent for this someone should have done something. Then there is the popular vote vs. the Electoral College, again, another failed system. I have the utmost respect for Gov. Romney for quietly conceding, I think he looked at what Al Gore did & reprications it had on his (political)future. That being said I wish he fought the election. I remember watching and being confused as to how they were calling theVote so early on. There were many problems that for some reason swept under the carpet. Polling areas where they found people voting 2X using SS numbers of DEAD people, the Black Panthers intimidating voters - briefly mentioned then never talked about again...It is a travesty what happened to this country with this last election and I have lost so much respect for our Government our President our media and last, We, the People. So the short answer is Obama probably would have won no matter what in 2008, I believe due to the Republic VP choice, but 2012 is our ruin, I feel like it's the Fall of Rome...

It sounds as though you have enough conspiracy theories to warrant extensive counseling. It might just be possible that after the collective damage of three destructive fiscal presidencies, beginning with Ronald Reagan's 189% raising of the national debt. Followed by Bush I & II, taking the debt from .9 trillion to 11 trillion, that only an intelligent black man could save us from the collective chaos steamrolled together by the white guys (Bill Clinton excepted). If you wish to discover where the collective incompetence lies, you have to look no further than any charting of the national debt from Reagan on and then man up and take responsibility for the carnage Republicans were mostly responsible for.
Report as
Did u understand a word I wrote??? My only commentary on debt had to do with Obama Care. For a President who speaks of a strong middle class he is doing the exact opposite. People w/ medical disabilities & depend on MediCARE will not receive the care they depend on. Instead Medicare becomes Medicaid - a completely different program. Companies are now starting to hire PT workers rather than FT in order to evade the cost of ObamaCare . NO ONE understands it, and last it was simply written in as law, he should be impeached for that alone.
What he did is unconstitutional - it goes against everything this country was founded on. Seriously, if people took the extra 2 minutes to stop and think before they speak (or type) this world would be a much better place.
