Obama poisoned the well. Add that to the growing list of disasters in the aftershock of Obama, America's first Affirmative Action president.

The only group of people who see OPapaDoc as a "black" president are liberals who constantly use racism to defend him.  To the rest of us, he is not a black president, but merely a lousy president; maybe the worst in our history.  His being black has very little to do with that.

That's not to say OPapaDoc is unaffected by his race.  He is.  We are all affected by our genetics.  But different people are affected in different ways.  In OPapaDoc's case, one could make the case that his ineffectiveness is actually the manifestation of his being mulatto.  He alternates between white guilt and black anger.  He develops policies based on his guilty half, and when they don't work, the angry victimized black man comes out and blames someone white and powerful, as if OPapaDoc himself was not the most powerful man in the world.

Agreed. But, in large part white Americans voted for Obama because he was black and "it was time" not because he possessed an impressive resume. Otherwise, they would have voted for Mccain.

"Race" had everything to do about the outcome of that race.

We should be glad for that much.

Hopefully, no more black messiah presidents in my lifetime.

I can envision the GOP with the first Hispanic VP, later elected first Hispanic Potus.

Sandoval, Martinez, Rubio, Cruz.

How about a two-fer:  any Hispanic women who're prepped for a shot at it?

Martinez, but I'm not sure she is that ambitious.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susana_Martinez

"Polling and opinion[edit]

Martinez has one of the highest approval rating of current governors in the United States.[35] Her approval ratings have not dropped below 60% in her tenure as governor.[36][37][38] In an April 2012 edition of the Washington Post, Martinez was named 8th most popular governor in the United States.[39]

As of May 2013, Martinez had an approval rating of 66%,[40][41] over 44% of Democrats in New Mexico approve of Susana Martinez.[42]"

Watch her, at the 2012 Republican Convention. She WOULD gain plenty of Hispanics for the GOP ticket. She is the real deal.

A 60% approval rating in a very blue state may - or may not - be a good thing.  It would be nice to actually wait for people to declare and debate before laying down a gauntlet of who should be the candidate.
