10. I agree

I live in central Illinois which is as red as Indiana. And I agree in Sangamon county which voted 66% for Bush in 2004 a lot of people will not vote for him because he is black. Period. He could usher in a Utopia and people will still not vote for him, sorry America we are still racist. How else can this race be this close? Mitt Romney as presidential candidate Is quite possibly the worse candidate I have ever seen. And not because I disagree with his policies but because he is a flip-flop machine, comes from a "funny" religious sect, and is as out of touch with the common American as Bush senior was. He is like a salad of all the worst qualities of the past 6 presidential losers and he is still neck and neck nationally. No doubt in my mind it has to do with his skin color and that is it.
It took a financial collapse of biblical proportions as well as a McCain implosion unseen since Gary Hart to get Barack into the oval office. Let's not forget that in 240 years there have been exactly two Presidents who have not been male, white, and Protestant. And for the two that haven't been, well two out of three ain't bad, unless of course the one thing you are missing is the white part.
