ANALYSIS/OPINION:

What qualifies a candidate to be president of the United States? Unfortunately, the question of race seems to be more important than the experience or background of the candidate. If anyone disagrees with President Obama, the liberal press can’t accept rejection of his policies, his agenda or his vision for America.

It is a travesty if anyone would not vote for Mr. Obama because of his race. However, it is also a travesty if someone votes for him because of his race.

Remember that Martin Luther King’s dream was for us to not judge a man by the color of his skin. He didn’t ask that people receive special treatment or advantages due to their race. This brings up sincere questions I would like to hear liberals and Democrats answer.

What qualities or experience does Mr. Obama possess that earned your vote? He promised to fundamentally change America - what changes were you looking for? How big will our deficit have to be before you say “no more” and implore him to drastically cut spending?
