Was recently accused of being racist for my views on the current president. So, I asked about presidential views.

Here's a pretty close outline to what took place in that conversation. Pretty close, because I expand it to go beyond my short discussion to include the nation as a whole.

Some 92 percent of a certain group of the American populace express support for the current president.

Ask specifics:

Do you support the $15 trillion deficit, largely owed to China?

No.

Do you support the expansion of the wars?

No.

Do you support the targeting of unarmed civilians?

No.

Do you support his positions on same gender marriage?

No.

Do you support the failure to pass a federal budget?

No.

Do you support the increased divisiveness in Washington after he promised to build bridges of support? (Witness statements made while campaigning)

(Consternation and an attempt to say it's not his fault)

Reiterating the same question engenders the same reply. Relying on statements made in the first campaign that he would not engage in partisan bickering and infight, I assign a "No" to this question.

Do you support the federal health care mandate?

Split decision. Majority yes.

Do you support everything in the mandate?

Yes.

Even government paid abortions?

No.

Then how can you support everything in the mandate?
(Evasive answer.)

Do you support the Wall Street bailout which resulted in untold bonuses for Wall Street execs?


No.

Do you support his continuation of the War on Drugs?


Split, but a majority no. (Age factors into this)

Name a major executive or approved-legislative accomplishment, except for the federal health care mandate, which the current president has enacted or created.


Silence.

Why do you support the president?

He's doing a good job.

Where? 
Everywhere!

How can he be doing a good job everywhere if you object to the above items?

You're a racist.

Ah. I'm racist because I look at what a person does as opposed to their outward appearance.
