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

imageThe 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.

Otherwise, he’s the permanent “other”, a cosmopolitan who is sophisticated, rational, and skeptical.

Race, of course, interweaves with America’s original sin, which will never be solved, only wrestled with by people of good will. Republicans solve that issue in their own minds by hating all liberals equally.
