Republicans publicly proclaimed their #1 goal was to make our first black POTUS fail.

Too bad we missed the obvious racial animus those statements from republicans contained. The Republican Party is not inclusive or compassionate they are racist bigoted and anti American. One can only hope it is possible to recover from the depth we have descended.

On Edit:
During that same meeting, a member relayed to Trump that potential welfare cuts would harm her constituents, "not all of whom are black." The president replied: "Really? Then what are they?"

1. McConnell did say he wanted Obama to be a one term President...

They planned that at Obamas 2009 inauguration.

2. The GOP represents the ugly underbelly of the US. We know it's there, and the GOP is proud to

claim it as theirs.

3. Agreed. Most redumbliCONs are racists. Always have been and probably always will be.

5. I'm more cynical. GOP leaders don't really care about race, they only care about money and power.

But they know they can stir up their base with racist comments.

6. I think that was obvious from the get go

If Obama said right, they said left. If he agreed with them, they went the other way.
The sad thing was Obama was trying to play it old school and work across the isle, work together. The teaparty/rethugs would have nothing to do with it.
He kinda sorta wasted his advantage of Dem pres,congress and senate in his first term..
Lets hope that does not happen in 2020.. Hopefully the Dem's will have their agenda ready to hit the road running in 2020 and take advantage of the upper hand...
JMHO...

7. McConnel said

the primary goal was to make Obama a one term president. His being black may or may not have had any bearing on that remark but your title sounds as if it was because he was black they wanted him to be a one term President. Being black doesn't automatically make race a role in anything. We would probably hear the same thing about any Democrat that wins.

8. I respect that you think it wasnt about him being black, but their party tried to imply

Time and again that his birth certificate was fake, that his education was made up, etc.. it was a daily assault on his legitimacy. Further, they went on to elect the breathtaking stupidity that is Donald j dump to potus. The father of the birthirism movement. You damn straight I believe it was because Barack Obama is a black man.
