Because of Obama, will it be harder for another black president?

    I have been hearing people say recently that because Obama has done such a poor job, and he is the first black president; it will be harder for another black person to become president. It made me think, so I am wanting to put this one out there and read your thoughts on this issue. I believe that since Bush we should give anybody a close double-take, and evaluate that person and his handling thus far of the office he has or had and etc...

      I would think that it should be easier for any other black person to be president since he has set the bar so low.

      I think that over time, whether Obama gets a second term or not, it's going to show that he did not do nearly as poorly as believed.

      We easily could have ended up in a full blown depression and I think the actions taken by Obama kept our head above water.  States that have chosen to pursue austerity measures have not done as well as states who have chosen to try to keep demand up at some level.

      I think that in all honesty, history will look very poorly upon congress from about 2000 on, with no end in sight to their incompetence.  Our troubles are fiscal, they stem from those that hold the purse strings.  I think the American people need a lesson in basic government if they believe that to be the president.

      It's not that he's done a bad job, it's just really hard to fix a country in four years. I mean, it might be easy to ruin it in that same amount of time, but to replace all that damage? It'll take more than that. It's just not that simple.

    I think, if anything, it's going to be easier. He broke through the "color barrier"--he proved it is possible to be a president and be a different race.

    His race should have no bearing on his policies. Just because some people think his policies were bad doesn't mean they shouldn't vote for a black man (or woman!) in the future.

    We as a country are moving backward at a rapid and very disturbing pace. At this rate, we won't have to worry about another black president for another 100 years.
    We may make another grand experiment and elect a woman POTUS though.
    And she will face an equally obstructionist Congress and be scapegoated for being a woman.

      Reality Bytesposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      In 1994, the American public met a man whom Oklahomans and football fans had known for two decades--J.C. Watts, Jr. That year he was elected to represent Oklahoma's fourth district in the U.S. House of Representatives. The race wasn't even close; he won a three-way competition with 52 percent of the vote. In 1996 he scored another victory in a three-way race, this time winning 58 percent. A decisive win is nice, but not unusual. However, Congressman Watts is an unusual man. He is the first African American Republican from a Southern state to win a seat in Congress since Reconstruction, and the only African American in the Congressional Class of 1994.

            But I do know he had a talk radio show, as did Mike Pence. Maybe JC Watts doesn't hate libs....but I'm guessing he does. SO--I can't say with certainty he is a creep like Mike Pence. But the odds are good.

    Young people, America needs you. If our country is going to continue to be great if it is going to continue to be strong you are going to have to do your part. You are going to have to fight for America. Fight against skipping school and cheating on your papers. Fight against driving too fast and disobeying your parents. Fight against cursing and smoking . And fight, fight with every fiber of your being against drugs and alcohol. I know, I know You've heard all this before and you probably think that J.C. Watts is just another old fashioned grown-up and if you're thinking that, you're right just ask my five kids, Keisha, Jerrelle, Jennifer, Trey, and Julie.

    I know its tough. Thats why I'm asking you to fight and be counted as a leader. You can help your friends find the courage to say no to the things that make them weak. And yes to the things that make them strong. You see character does count. For too long we have gotten by in a society that says the only thing right is to get by and the only thing wrong is to get caught. Character is doing whats right when nobody is looking. And I want to make a promise to you. We will do our best to leave this country in better shape financially, environmentally, and most of all.... spirituality.

    Parents and adults I don't just challenge the youth tonight. I challenge you. For what we build and nourish and encourage in our youth today, is what our country will look like 20 years from now.

    The American Dream is about becoming the best you can be. It's not about your bank account, the kind of car you drive, or the brand of clothes you wear. It's about using your gifts and abilities to be all that God meant for you to be. Whether your dream is to be a doctor, teacher, engineer, or Congressman. If you can dream it, you can do it. The American Dream is the promise that if you study hard, work hard and dedicate yourself you can be whatever you want to be.

    Make America proud by Keeping the American Dream alive. You can do it. You are America's greatest resource. And... one more thing.... if a poor black kid from rural Oklahoma can be here tonight, this great country will allow you to dream your dreams.... too!

    Why would there be another black president, unless he's a billionnaire? The next "minority" president will be Hispanic/Latin ... well, actually, Cuban. That will probably be Marco Rubio, who will take over when Romney finishes. That's because of his pro-wealth politics.

    The idea that Obama changed things for black voters is kind of specious. It is America that has changed. Americans honor the rich. And Obama has made it easier for the wealthy--that minority--to win elections. They can say they have a class-warfare president, who they are fighting against. You don't want another one like him. The argument holds truth for a majority of Americans who honor the rich, wanna be like them. After all, people loved the 9-9-9 pizza king, and wanted him as president, because he was rich.

    That all depends on whether folks correlate performance and race.  For me, it is not even a consideration...I could care less. There are many that want to make this about race which I believe, in and of itself, is simply a distraction from the direction and performance which has been exhibited by this President and his Administration. In fact, I believe if there is indeed a race issue related to this presidency, it is surely one that shines the light back on Obama and the poor way in which he has identified with his own race of people.  His intention in doing so may have been noble in that he desired to show no partiality but it came across as a rejection of his own ethnicity for me.  In the end, I truly believe history will look at Obama on the basis of his performance and the actions which he elected to take or allow.  Given that premise, I see no reason that it should hurt the potential for the election of another black person to the office.  I also believe that premise came through in the momentum which Herman Cain exhibited in his run for the office. Although he did not make it through the nomination process, he did demonstrate that he could attract strong support even in the southern USA.  WB

      We've tried a black male and lots of white males. It's time for us to try a woman - white, black, Latina, Asian American, or Native American!

      Seriously, having an AA POTUS has disappointed me in America. Perhaps we haven't come as far from racism as we thought. I've heard people use all sorts of racial slurs in regard to Obama, and these were from individuals whom I thought didn't have a racist bone in their bodies. Frankly, I was shocked to hear such words fall from their mouths.

      Don't get me wrong - I don't think everyone opposed to Obama is racist. I didn't vote for him, but I respect him as our POTUS and as a person. There are some, however, who hate him just for being black.

        Personally, I do not think Obama being black will have an impact on future AA Running for the top office. Obama's failed policies have nothing to do with his race anymore than the mistakes Bush made has to do with his race. People just like to play the race card when it is convenient. Does that mean I think that there is no racism, no, it is still there and I think has gotten worse over the last 3 years.

        I agree with Habee, a woman President could be cool, at least Hillary would have been better than Obama.

    I wouldn't a have problem at all voting for a Conservative that just happens to be black. Barack Hussein Obama's idiocy isn't due to the color of his skin but rather his ideology.

    Hugo is about to kick the bucket. Perhaps Obama should head down there. He could become "El Presidente" for life and his ideology would fit much better there.

    The right wing and republican party have lied so much and have played the racist card so many times that people are getting sick of it. This is especially because the Republican party and the right wing got us into this mess, is lying about it still, and has no plan whatsoever to get us out of it.

    Giving the rich more tax breaks, starting the wars on women and people of color, sucking up to the extremist fringe minority and being the most cowardly chicken hawks of all time is not good news for the right or for conservatives.

      How can one person be so wrong but beautiful? Nice smile.

      Xenonlit, I'm a Conservative and I've NEVER played the race card. I've had it dealt to me a few times simply because I don't agree with nor support Barack Obama but I can assure you it has nothing to do with his skin color.

      I've come to understand some Dems and Liberals use the "race card" when they have nothing else to say. They can't debate so they throw it out in an effort to stymy the other person. It doesn't work with me. I'm not a racist simply because I think and say Barack Hussein Obama is a horrible president. His supporters may not like it but that's their problem. It is my opinion.

      When it comes to the economic problems we're facing, there's certainly enough blame to go around on both sides of the aisle. One must open their eyes past skin color to see them though and also to the fact the Dems and Obama have only exacerbated the problem. Keep in mind I'm not that thrilled with the other side either.

      Now, I sincerely hope you won't consider me a racist simply because I don't agree with you or Obama. From reading your profile, I get the impression you're much smarter than that.

        Fox nonsense aside, show me some expert economic data where Obama has messed up the economy. Bush had the first stimulus package and that saved the U.S. from a banking system collapse. And the second package, much of which was paid back, got 2 million jobs to keep from being lossed. Otherwise, Obama has downsized the federal government. The data say that there a 1.3% fewerpeople employed by the U.S. than before 2009. http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/ … ment-jobs/

        I don't really care myself. We ar at the point in the history of Rome where the Praetorian Guard, the Emperor's body guards, sold the office of the Emperior to the highest bidder. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Praetorian_Guard 

        So, when Sheldon Adelson says he'll spend $100 million for a Romney victory, as Forturne reported today, you know that issues about having a democracy are moot. It's been a plutocracy since the Supreme Court declared it one last year, where corporations are now people and can give unlimited donatios.

        I don't have a beef with anyone on this. It's just the way empires go. And I think you're that way too. You'd probably just like to see a little more truth in an informed discussion. I'm trying ... but you can call me anything you want!!!! I have no skin in this game.

      Speaking of Bush, is anybody saying it will be harder for another white president after he messed the economy up?  I added up all the years we have been in either a depression or a  recession and since the panic of 1797, we have been in either for one third of the time.  That is not very good performance but no one is blaming the whiteness of those presidents.    Obama has done a great job, btw.  Any president who truly represents the people in a government run by billionaires is fighting an up hill battle.

      It's true, LH - some members of ALL sides use the race card when it comes in handy. Race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc. should have no part in who we choose as our leaders.

      The amount of people that really care about skin instead of person’s mettle, are too few to make a difference. A great black man will be president one day. Everyone was so transfixed with Obama being the first one; they didn’t look past his slick words or skin. It’s a shame what he has done with his time, because many American’s had high hopes for him. He definitely won’t get reelected.
