In the minds of wingnut Conservative, President Obama is….

The wrong color coupled with the wrong tribe. If he were more in the Stepin Fetchit School of Black Republicans (Clarence Thomas, Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Allen West), there wouldn’t be an issue.

Some groups never tire of seeking protection. One special interest with its hand perpetually out is the group led by Florida tomato growers.
