He is not one of us?
Then I don't want to be one of us either.
The New York Times this morning quotes Andrew Kohut of the Pew Research Center as saying that the perception of Americans is that Obama is "not one of us." The article also examines the problem of race in the election.
Despite an amazing speech on the topic or race, despite the fact that he epitomizes the America success story, Obama has been hammered by the press and by his opponents for being radical, a black extremist, marxist, elitist, islamic, unpatriotic and the New York Times wonders where white, frightened xenophobic middle Americans come up with this idea?
These voters are just upholding a long held tradition of racism in America.
