No Country For Black Presidents

So my president, President Barack Hussein Obama visited my state yesterday. The so-called Republic of Texas. The only one of the 50 states to enter the Union by treaty.

We are a really weird state, populated by really weird bat guano conservative people. I have no idea why the president would spend any time here at all, but then you have to look at his agenda and where he spent his time.

El Paso and Austin.

El Paso and Austin are to Texas as West Hollywood is to the Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). As oil is to water.

Barack Obama visited the only two parts of the state that are considered sane. And by sane I mean are Democratic strongholds. And in doing so he put his card in the Democratic ATM and withdrew $2 million. I don’t begrudge him that. If we Texans can’t deliver votes for him in this crazy state, at least we can deliver for him the dead presidents that appear on our banknotes.

So he can get it done in other states that are not so crazed.

Nick Anderson caught it exact I think, on his Chron cartoon today.

I'm all for having a President of the United States who happens to be black.

Condi Rice.
Alan West.
Herman Cain.

My problem is that the current president has crappy policies and implements them poorly.

And that rather than being a President of the United States who happens to be black, the incumbent's supporters insist that he is a black President and therefore make any opposition into an issue of race rather than an issue of policy.

So you are correct -- this is no country for black Presidents. But it is a great country for Presidents who happen to be black, Hispanic, Mormon, Jewish, Asian, Hindu, atheist, . . .
