We have a television set at work that is tuned into 24-hour news. I passed the TV once when an Obama press conference was about to take place and heard the reporter say that Obama was running 20 minutes behind schedule. I said to my colleagues, "He's never on time for these press conferences." You could have cut the tension in that room with a knife. Holy cow--I had just indicated that a black man had a habit of being late for scheduled events. You can't express the truth of a particular situation if it remotely touches upon a stereotype.
The two biggest characteristics Obama has going for him are he's 1) black and 2) a liberal. Although the benefits of these two oftentimes overlap, Obama has been successful in using one when the other isn't doing the trick.
The perfect example is the subject of where Obama was when word came in that the Benghazi attack was occurring and the U.S. ambassador was in trouble. On the morning news shows this past Sunday, several Obama lackeys were asked that very question. They responded that Obama's location was "irrelevant." Oh really?
