|Rod, not making sense there.
Blacks indeed are mostly Democrat, but voting 95% for one candidate!! Can you give me an example of when ANY ethnic or racial group voted 95% for someone? Of course you can't...that pearl necklace on that old sow looks nice, but she's still a hog.
Yes, Whites did vote for white Presidents who declared war on other nations. As I recall from WWI, the USA declared war after a prolonged harrassment of ships traveling from Europe to the USA and the sinking of a large passenger ship (ever heard of the Luisitannia where 1200 people were killed by Germans?) was the final straw. And, WWII was declared after a suprise attack by the Japanes destroyed several ships and killed several hundred sailors. So, what is a president suppose to do, turn the other cheek? Get real! But, as i recall all the candidates in that election were white...so, who would they have voted for if not for a white.
Or, where you talking about Iraq and Afghanistan (Pres Bush). let's see now, in Iraq that White President you obviouly dislike freed over 80,000,000 people from a cruel dictator who routinely and systematically tortured, maimed and murdered several hundred thousand political enemies and had government sponsored rape gangs, confiscated billions of dollars of oil money for himself while many went hungry and too many other atrocities to list here. And, how about Afghanistan where the Taliban was in control and imposed very strict Islamic law and traditions where people were routinely executed if they were found guilty of disobeying the smallest rule and women were stoned for any reason they wanted. And they were sponsoring Al qaueda and Bin Laden. I suppose you have already gotten over 911. I have been extremely mad toward anything or anyone that had anything to do with 911 since 9/11/2001. I don't ever plan to get over the murder of 3000 innocent people that were just minding their own business.
And, that economic disaster you are talking about was as much the fault of Democrats (and Obama) as it was for George Bush...probably more Democrats at fault. To lay ALL the blame on him is totally unjust and unfair. You may agree that a large part of the financial disaster was created by Fannie and Freddy. But, were you aware that in 2003 Pres. Bush sent a bill to put more controls on them and curtail the bad loans they were issuing? Do you know what happened to that bill that might have saved the economy? Obama was one of the Senators that voted "NO" to more restrictions and regulations on freddie and fannie and helped kill the bill.....Yes, I said OBAMA VOTED 'NO' TO MORE RESTRICTIONS ON FREDDIE AND FANNIE!. And, another Democrat who was in charge of the Committee that oversees Freddie and Fannie was Barnie Franks who just several months before those two housing giants failed issued a statement that Freddie and Fannie was stable and had no problems. So, you have Democrats and Obama will dirty hands all the way through helping the flush the economy down the toilet. So don't give me that old bull hockey that Bush left a mess for Obama. But, what has improved since Obama has been in office? Not a dang thing and we are so far in debt now, we may never get out thanks to that hockeystick.
I had high hopes that you might show a little intelligence and knowledge of past events, but that's way too much to ask of a Democrat and a commentator, I suppose...just run off at the mouth without having any facts to back up your statements.
