I think the blind support is a two way street... Big time

That's all I got for a rant.
Sometimes I feel like it's because he's white, and Obama is not.

I can see that. I know DH's family supports Obama just because he's black. The racist comments all over my facebook is getting annoying. Blind support goes both ways.

All I know is my support (NOT of Romney) is certainly not blind. I, crazily enough, actually do care about facts and math:0

I think it ends up being especially true in the south, which I also hate to say because I live here, and I grew up here and I love it here, but it's pretty ridiculous.

If that were the case I don't think Obama would be president currently.

Racism is a big part of it, but definitely not all. People have always voted against their own interests or for unattainable ideas etc.

HOWEVER, the absolute craziness and insanity that is being spread about Obama, that I can only attribute to racism. I am not talking about disagreeing with policies, or even liking the man...I am talking about the lengths people will go to trying to believe he is "different" or "not one of us" (read: not the typical WASP president)

Joey has a little diarrhea tonight and when I took him outside he munched a ton of grass and threw up. Hoping he just ate something that upset his belly a little. Gave him some anti-diarrhea medicine and some digestive enhancer so hopefully that will settle his tummy.

Josh and I have been at each other's throats like crazy recently and after blowing up at each other and then talking it out the other night I found out that he is going through some serious deep depression that I wasn't aware of and he had mentioned sometimes wishing he could end his life. We're calling the counselor tomorrow to set up an appointment. We could both use some vibes right now.

The fact that anyone thinks that Obama has gotten where he is because of his skin color is just..I can't even think of a word that sums it up! I'll just go with WRONG.

Anybody who had any grasp on how deep racism runs would understand that Obama has reached where he is today largely in spite of his race and background, certainly not because of it.
Regardless of the few token examples of "Oh I know a guy who voted for him because he's black!"
How many racists do you think live and breathe and vote in this country?
How many presidents do you know that have been hung dry over a birth certificate? their name? Do you have any idea how many challenges Obama must have faced to even break through and get as far as he has, regardless of how you feel about him, take a look at the VAST MAJORITY of those in congress and politics in general and tell me that things aren't skewed in a certain white direction.

"People just vote for Obama because he's black! WAHH! Poor Mittens! It must be so hard being a white male running for president! I mean look at the history books! WHITE MEN JUST CAN'T CATCH A BREAK RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY!"

Well, I don't know about the country as a whole, but it's pretty alive and well in the "deep south" "bible belt" states like Mississippi.

But I agree.
