Is the GOP not ceding anything to Obama to keep their

base all angry? Cause if they don't fire them up they might get sad. And continue through the stages of grief until they get to acceptance and a new relationship with the world. The GOP doesn't want their base to change (or grow). Angry people don't cede anything. They are fighters. They keep or gain more territory. If the base grieves and then grows they might grow up. They might be open. They might forge a new relationship with their place in the world and give up on white privilege and racism. They might like Obama and Obamacare. They might forge bonds with people who are not exactly like them and actually like being part of the bigger world. They might not vote for the gop in the future.

1. No, not ceding anything because he's black.

Bunch of racists. Simple as that. Circular firing squad is being prepared for the bunch of em.

2. No it's to make it look like

we stole the election in the eyes of their base. We have one here refusing to cede and she has half as many votes as the Dem and none left to count. So tell me what her purpose is, if not to invalidate the win by soiling it.

3. Fox just needs one good anti-Obama story to pump up and they'll be back in the driver's seat.

4. Not all Republicans are Racist

And I think it is a huge mistake to think that way. Michelle Obama has about an 80% approval rating. If 80% of Americans are okay with a BLACK First Lady, then it has to be something else.

I have Republican co-workers. They aren't racist. They may be white, but they are not racist. I have Republican cousins and nephews and husbands of friends. They are BLACK. They are not racist.

This assumption is going to get folks in trouble.
