Never mind the Gene Simmons Factor, which clearly played a role in delivering Obama the White House in 2008.
Americans are back to being racist jerks again, according to the miserable curmudgeon from Virginia, Jim Moran.
“It [the Republican successes in the 2010 elections] happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.Actually, Moran is unwittingly half right. A lot of people do oppose Obama because he's a liberal spendthrift of historic proportions. However, they don't hold his skin color against him - in fact, the self-described mutt's enigmatic hue is one of his precious few political assets.
“In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-Amerian, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society….”
The others, of course, being his perfectly creased pants and chiseled pectorals!
Indeed, Americans apparently don't mind at all being governed by an African-American President - even when his actual policies consistently poll lower than root canals and that "nails-on-a-chalkboard" sound. If someone could please explain that one to me, I'm all ears.
