I RECENTLY wrote a critical list of Barry Obama’s presidency. When it appeared on Facebook, not surprisingly, one of the reactions, the most overused and tiresome, from a Barry fan was that I am a racist.
It came, not surprisingly, from a member of the U.S. media (an adopted Texan who should know better*) and we know how fond most of those media people are of their faux-black president.
The individual in question did not come right out and call me a racist. He was a tad more subtle, saying that I obviously would not be happy till I saw a white president. In other words, it’s all about race, and criticism of Obama is always racism. There was some pointing at Bush, their fall-back defense. Dubya done it!
No doubt there are some people who don’t like Barry because they think the mulatto** is black. Most criticism of the failed presidency, however, is based on performance. Certainly, mine is. The melatonin content of the president is of no concern whatsoever.
To illustrate: Here is my black dream team for the White House.
President: Dr. Ben Carson.
Chief adviser: Thomas Sowell.
Vice President: Allan Keyes.
Secretary of Defense: Allen West.
Secretary of Commerce: Herman Cain.
Secretary of State: Condoleezza Rice.
Secretary of the Treasury: Tim Scott.
Secretary of Health and Human Services: Mia Love.
Secretary of Labor: J.C. Watts.
Environmental Protection: Angela McGlowan.
Department of Education: Joseph C. Phillips.
Housing and Urban Development: Lynn Swann.
Homeland Security: Crystal Wright.
I could go on, but you get the point. This issue is political belief, not skin tone. All of the above favor limited government, low taxes, a strong military, liberty, capitalism, individual responsibility, etc.
They would be a dream team, and black faces all. God bless ’em!

(Note: If Rick Perry had a much better tan, I would have put him into the vice presidential slot and moved Allan Keyes elsewhere. Keyes — a repeated presidential hopeful — is a little wacky, which is why I tagged him for VP. The smirking Biden has set a new, zany tone for that do-nothing post.)
