    Peace and Blessings Family,

    There is lots of talk in the news regarding Obama's failure to achieve bipartisan consensus on many of the things he's wanted to do. There's probably no President that has had a more difficult time than Obama. I'm amazed at all of this talk of his failure to realize support from both (major) sides of politics, as if that is all that he is contending with.

    Do you think it's solely a bipartisan issue, or is racism at play?

    :heart:

    The Senate today is entirely non-Black.

    It's certainly racism, seeing how the "Tea Party" was initiated as a response of Obama's ascent. Some representatives of the Tea Party are known to discuss "race wars" among other hideous accusations.

    What's more it's a powerful movement that bases itself near entirely in hindering Obama's Presidency. It's an ugly thing that unfortunately we're not being made too aware of.

    Yes, it seems even the things that Republicans have historically been for, they are now against when Obama is for them. They simply will not agree with anything that does any good for this country, its citizens, or the world, if it's coming from this Black Man. What a position to be in ... krazee.

    You are so right. I think the whole issue with Obama and the Republican Party is the fact that Obama is black.. Racism is at the core of how the Republicans think...They know that is the key issue...but would pretend that it is otherwise. They cannot even comprehend a black man as president. They intend to veto every bill in the US Senate. They want to frustrate things for the President... just to prove a point... They know that his plans are WORKABLE...But they are willing jeopardise everthing just for their narrow minded political agenda...what a shame.:(

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    ... Great Thread and great conversation, one we haven't given equal time or attention; bipartisan politics or racism...

    In view of the secret meetings of the GOP, immediately after Mr. Obama was sworn in as President... the gauntlet took shape to deny the President a second term; even to the extent of risking the Credit rating of the U. S., shameful racism. This is why I agree with Hill Harper's position on this most important and significant re-election:

    WASHINGTON WATCH: Hill Harper Discusses The 2012
    Election; Says This Time It's Personal
    When Roland Martin was at the Democratic National Convention, he talked to his fraternity brother, actor, author and activist Hill Harper. Harper is also pretty close to Pres. Barack Obama. They were classmates at Harvard Law School and have been friends for 20 years. Harper told Roland how he sees this year's election.



    Peace In,
