12. I see it as a swipe at affirmative action

Because the Republicans believe that every job a minority has is one they took from a white person because of affirmative action. And of course one of the the reasons they believe Obama is president is because many voters wanted to feel like they were giving someone disadvantaged a shot, not because they actually believed Obama was more qualified than the white man he ran against. It just drives them crazy because in their mind a minority couldn't be better at the job than a white man, he just got the job because he is a minority.
