I’m sure you all remember how it was, and with fanfare complete with Roman columns, when Barry “Almighty’ was heralded as being the “great uniter” that was just what this country had long been looking for. He was, after all, ‘The One’ we had all been waiting for. But it didn’t take very long for Barry to show his true ‘colors’. And over the course of the last seven years we have come to see just how much of a myth those claims of him being a “uniter” were really were.
So much so that today nearly half of all Americans say that Barry that rather than bringing Americans together he has caused further division among racial groups in the United States. It’s according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll that was released just this past Friday that 47 percent of 1,000 likely voters surveyed on Monday and Tuesday said that Barry, the nation’s first black, or half black, president, has succeeded in nothing more than to drive the races even further apart.
That compared with only 20 percent who said that Barry, who was first elected in 2008, has brought the races closer together. Obviously a group comprised almost completely of blacks, or those suffering from some sort of terminal psychotic disorder. In addition, 27 percent said Barry’s words and actions have had no major impact either way. In other findings, 44 percent of black voters feel Barry has brought America together, versus only 16 percent of whites.
And according to Rasmussen, 54 percent of white voters believe Barry has driven the races further apart, compared with only 21 percent of blacks. The results are similar to a Bloomberg Politics poll taken last year which showed that 53 percent believe race relations have worsened under Barry while 36 percent think they are unchanged, and only 9 percent believe they have improved. The Rasmussen survey confirms what Barry’s critics have said about his poor record on race relations.
Texas senator Ted Cruz in a speech this past April said, “President Obama, when he was elected, he could have been a unifying figure. He could have chosen to be a leader on race relations and bring us together.” Cruz also said, “And he hasn’t done that, he’s made decisions that I think have inflamed racial tensions that have divided us rather than bringing us together.” In all seriousness Barry came into office with an incredible amount of promise, but, sadly, he would come to choose politics over promise.
And appearing on Fox New last year, actor, commentator and speech writer Ben Stein accused Barry of selling lies to black voters. Stein said, “What the White House is trying to do is racialize all politics and their especially trying to tell the Africa-American voter that the GOP is against letting them have a chance at a good life in this economy, and that’s just a complete lie.” But let’s face it, Democrats have been doing that for decades, and blacks have been stupid enough to believe them.
