Not being an American citizen..it seems Obama has something of a novelty factor as he is the First mm American African? Hawaiian?Nigerian President.

Surely all the saavy Republican advisors could have created a Oprah styled republican candidate to vy for the American presidency?

This would have appealed to both women and fans of such shows as The Cosbys and Good Times ect which I ..like millions of others worldwide personally liked.

It may have been a smart move tactically for sure..Obama would not be able to criticise a female contender so easily lest he be accusssed of sexism.

This tactic is used quite effectively by Australias (no not the nation of avengeful landscape painters) first ever female Prime Minister.

She garnishes sympathy by women and the Gay movement as well as a fair slice of married men.

The critics of policy become bullys sexist aggressive if they target a woman opponent..if the advisors of the Female candidate pull the strings shrewdly?

The republicans have played it dumb.

This is insulting to Americans. Much more so than the actual candidate the GOP did actually put forth.

Romney is just there to take a dive so that Obama can push forward an agenda.

Did you catch Sara Palin's reception as VP.
The media made a major effort to make her out as an idiot. (she didn't counter it much either)

Why is it insulting to Americans?
Is there a problem having a Female African American Presidential contender?

Bah, the only thing that Republicans (todays republicans) are SMART ENOUGH to come up with involving strategy, is 'parroting' senseless meaningless asinine buzzwords like "socialist" and "communist" and "Marxist" which they have NO IDEA what the real meaning of the words actually are.


Todays republicans are about as bright as a dark hole. And as backwards as the dark-ages.

Because you are insinuating that race/gender are what Americans vote for versus character and qualification.

That is why.

Sorry if the basic premise offends you..the point is sometimes silencing criticism happens if the critics are afraid of being labelled Racist...sexist....Anti Gay...anti semitic...ect it works ad nauseam.

My reason for asking the oP question is it would have got the republicans in power...but they have no chance.
My opinion nothing more.

This concept has actually been tossed around the GOP circle for some time. They were hyping Condaleeza Rice for a while and it began to take hold on the masses but I don't think, in the end, that the GOP establishment could work up the nerve to do it.

Just a hunch, but I bet it would be tough to get the base to back a black woman. In all my dealings with the local GOP, it became quite clear that it is a good-ole-boy club with some "arm-candy" tossed in for fun.

Trouble is Condeeleeza Rice has vampire teeth...she really should hve had her teeth reshaped...every time I saw her she reminded me of a vampire movie extra.

Sometimes its the most superfical things that swing the day.

To an outsider Rommney appears as genuine as a saint in a pawn shop.

No,
Condolezza didn't get any slack and she's a black woman.

A black woman as candidate would be raked over the coals as a traitor to the left.

Kind of like how Colin Powell is considered a traitor by the Right?

The black President experiment has been a total failure.

It will be a long time before we have another one.

We are in barbaric times if we still vote based on the color of one's skin. Sadly, OP, your idea would probably work.

I hate to say this but the media was correct in this matter, Sara Palin is a idiot, Though she has "some" good ideas/plans, The only thing she lacked was an appeal to all audience of america "the highly logical intelligent Americans"

I want the best possible candidate. It doesn't matter what color or gender. Our current "symbolism over substance" exercise is a perfect example of what not to do.

I don't believe that.
It isn't about color.
All of the presidents up until Obama were white but we had some really good ones and some really bad ones.
It's about being a representative who can work both sides of the aisle and work for the best of the country instead of pushing a hard agenda.

I don't think color has anything to do with it.

That's one of the most racist statements I've seen on ATS, so let me follow it with another one.
One that's really clever.

Actually after 40+ white ones the white president experiment was a total failure. The black president thing is just warming up.

And one more just for fun.

The Republicans will never run a black presidential candidate as their voting base is too racist overall.
