There are a few things I want to talk about here... First off, Obama is representative of a contingent of society that has always baffled and irked me. A man with a black father and white mother. A man whose father left him at two and went back to Africa. A man that was raised by his white mother and white grandparents. A man that calls himself "African American". He's African AND American, but why identify with the side that abandoned you and not the side that nurtured and raised you? (I know at least 5 people like this in my real life too and it has always annoyed me) I could see if the mom and grandparents were Black and the dad was white identifying more with being Black... Anyway, that's the first thing that bugs me right from the get-go.
Honestly though, I could care less how he identifies himself as I wouldn't vote for him regardless of his race or what he thinks his race is. The only color that matters is that he's green (and not in a Dennis Kucinich environmental way) and he voted for partial birth abortion. I'm more interested in what the left is saying about him. Here is what I turned up on my left'o'sphere reconnaissance:
Here are some direct quotes from the Left'o'sphere after Obama's announcement yesterday:
