Obama in black and white

Listen in to Republicans talking onCNN, let alone Fox News, and you would think Barack Obama is leading the United States into rack and ruin. The antagonism is amazing with his modest, but admittedly expensive, health care changes described as the work of some kind of socialist devil. Nevertheless it is noticeable that almost all of the opponents are white  — something very obvious from the Gallup poll approval ratings.

Clearly there are still two Americas — with southern whites having very different views about a black president than do blacks and hispanics.
