I am old enough to recall when President Franklin D. Roosevelt was hated by one third of Americans during the Depression, some even referred to him as “Roosenfeld” in order to claim he was Jewish. I remember when most Americans did not trust Barry Goldwater, the Republican candidate for president in 1964, I recall when most Americans had lost trust in Richard Nixon and I certainly recall when George Bush was not the most beloved man in the White House. But, what exactly is the reason for the intense feeling by 69% of Republicans in this nation that President Obama does “not love America?” I readily admit that Obama has made numerous political mistakes. I admit that he has lacked an overall plan in dealing with the Middle East. I admit that he could simply have extended Medicare to all Americans and gained the support of Americans for health insurance. Heck, I admit that he is an introvert who lacks political sense. He certainly does not come across as one who makes friends with those on Capital Hill.
But, for God’s sake how does his behavior translate into hating America. The man was elected by a majority of Americans twice! There is only one conclusion to this hatred THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN! Let’s face facts, at least one third of Americans still harbor race hatred.
