The Predicament of an African-American President

It’s no longer news that President Obama was considered the loser in the first Presidential debate.  Several reasons have been sighted for his below-expectation performance and they include “not himself”, “too soft on Romney”, “not forceful” and so on and so forth.  Fast-forward to the second debate where he tried to incorporate all those things that were missing out during the first one and lo and behold, the story was different; he obviously performed better, but has been called “angry”, “aggressive”, “edgy” and all sorts of other names. The interesting thing here is that the Republicans have obviously tried to use Obama’s strength to paint him as being weak.  I really enjoy following all these political tactics adopted by both parties, but I can’t come to terms with the callousness of certain policies the Republican party have hung unto for the longest time and it annoys me that there is no willingness on their part to at least modify this to at least make it a fun party.  I don’t know what it will take to effect a turnaround – maybe another loss!
