F%$# Me, I Agree with Geraldo Rivera

On Fox News, he has stated thatthe reaction to Barack Obama's presidency shows that the nation was not ready for a black man in the White House.

He further goes on to state that he believes that Obama shirked his duty to address these issues, which I also agree with:
Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera was Tuesday’s “One Lucky Guy” on the network’s “Outnumbered” midday hit and shared his unpopular opinion with the conservative female co-hosts ahead of President Obama’s seventh and final State of the Union address Tuesday evening.

But Rivera argued that despite substantive policy disagreements, the real divisions made clear during the Obama presidency fall along racial lines:
When you strip away all of the gun rights and the, you know, terror all rest of it, what you have essentially is a nation divided between white people and everybody else in broad strokes. When you look at the groups that overwhelmingly favor the Democrats right now, the Asians, the Hispanics, the African-Americans, the Muslims, you see a nation where people have largely chosen up sides and if you strip away everything else, what you are going to find is a racial divide. It’s biggest, unaddressed issue.

Rivera finally relented and charged that Obama had failed to confront race relations head-on as the first African-American president. “If I was this president,” the Fox News personality offered, “I would have said ‘I’m going to deal with this race. I’m going to deal with the legacy of the Civil War. The Civil War is over. The North/South divide — I would have made that the central focus of my president were I him.”

“He failed utterly,” Rivera concluded, and by “benign neglect made it worse.”
As I have noted many times before, Barack Obama's public personae is all about avoiding to appear the "Angry Black Man", and as such he has studiously attempted to avoid facing racial issues.

Still, agreeing with Geraldo?

I feel so dirty.

All the attempted profound statements by fox hacks, do not make up for the unlimited funds used to spread lies around the country as to what horrific things obama and the feds were up to. Unlimited funds by a bought and paid for chief justice. There is your reason for all the 'unaccomplished' issues by the prez..He did damn good..
