I’ve never seen a president take so much multi-ethnic heat. Ten percent of black people don’t like the current president because he doesn’t share the “African American” experience, i.e., his ancestors were not black American slaves and his name isn’t Leroy Jones. Twenty-percent of white people don’t like him because he is black. Culturally a significant number of the Rick Santorum-led crowd doesn’t like him because he is an elitist snob with more than one semester of college under his belt.
I haven’t even brought up his ill-advised economic policies.
But guess what? There is a good chance he’ll beat Mittens by three percentage points. American exceptionalism.
