Sadly the only thing the big O ensures with these statements is he will be the only black person elected president. Sadly all others will pay for his epic failure of the last 8 years. He campaigned his ass off for she who was to be another first and his own demographic failed him. He will become more bitter with age as he finds himself irrelevant. When information leaked is confirmed that he approved arming ISIS to overthrow Assad in Syria his legacy will end up on the scap heap of history.

So in one post you essentially requested that someone provide a definition of "race card."
Now you are indicating that an article that didn't specifically say that "Gates acted stupidly" means that he didn't, in fact, act stupidly.
While I do believe your intentions are good, if you need to have the very basics of language and verbal/written intent spelled out for you...

I don't like him, not because he is black but because I just don't like him.
Good enough reason for me.
Not an epic failure. He is a very good President and never has been bitter.
It means that a lot of people don't like him for many different reasons. some of them because he was too black or too white, but mostly for his terrible policies though. And he would rather you hate him for his skin than his #ed up strategies for subverting the constitution, which is actually treason and punishable by death. He enacted a lot of unconstitutional policies in 8 years, those policies will still be hated long after he's gone.

This is weird, but at my workplace and in my daily life, I have spoken with a number of African Americans who also had a negative view of President Obama because his skin color was 'not black' enough. So what does that mean? He just didn't have the right skin color at all? Wtf? Who cares about skin color?
