Rich white folk

Who is the President's base? Rich whites says Derryck Green.

"Even as he ran for the Illinois state senate, the U.S. Senate and the White House, Barack Obama's main constituency has been rich, liberal white people. Black folk supported him along the way, but their loyalty of support does not necessarily constitute a political base.

Aside from that short stint as a "community organizer" and attending Trinity United Church of Christ — it would seem to build his "street cred" and "authenticity" among those who would be his most loyal supporters — Barack Obama never spent a significant amount of time around black people. "

He begins with a  review of how Barack Obama used the gay marriage issue to get elected. He was against it before he was for it. And are liberals at Mozilla suggesting he be run out of town?
