That is what Obama said in an interview on January 17.
"President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today.
“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,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, appearing in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition."
Maybe it's just because he is a liar! Maybe it's just because HE is a racial president that plays divided class/racial politics. Maybe it's because if he had a son he would look like Travon Martin. Maybe it's because he disregards the constitution and is an utter failure. Maybe it's just because........it is anything other than his skin color.
