President Obama thinks some people don’t like him because of his race.
Obama knows the truth, as evidenced in the rest of his statement. He knows he is President largely because he rode the “Let’s make history” hobby-horse right into the White House, with an adoring media helping him all the way. But as his star fades, he’s going to play the race card as often as needed to try and prop up his dismal Presidency.
President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today.

Whoever brought race into is an idiot. If we don’t like Obama, it’s not b/c he’s black – it’s because his policies suck.
