New Poll: 75% approval for Obama's White half

Rate: 12 Flag

LINCOLN, Neb. — When it comes to Barack Obama, it’s all Black and White.

A new Chronicles Poll shows that Americans overwhelming approve of President Obama’s White half, while his Black half has approval ratings that rival Sarah Palin’s.

“Hell, I even like Obama’s White half,” said GOP leader Rush Limbaugh. “It’s that Socialist Communist Kenyan Black half of his that’s destroying this nation. And that’s not being racist, just telling it like it is.”

Data gathered from the poll shows that many Americans approve of Obama’s “White” policies – such as Drone-bombing Pakistan, covering up George W. Bush’s torture activities, protecting British Petroleum, and taking the Executive privilege of assassinating anyone he feels like.

Interestingly, however, Americans also approve of what the GOP secretly calls Obama’s “Black” policies, which includes Health Care Reform, Financial Reform, not letting poor people just die, and telling Fox News they are a propaganda non-news outlet.

“I think he’s doing the best I can, and I have respect for him,” said Tim Johnson of Tupelo, Miss. “I just don’t know if I trust half of him.”

Despite enjoying unrivaled support amongst African-Americans and a loyal legion of supporters – who approve of both of the President’s racial sides – the President has seen his overall approval numbers drop to 47 percent recently. In the new poll, his White side had an approval rating of 22 percent.

“This isn’t a racist thing,” said GOP Standout Newt Gingrich. “It’s just that we judge him based on the color of his skin. To say that’s racist is just playing politics.”

The Chronicles surveyed 1,141 people from Oct. 1 to Oct. 5. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.

I am still waiting for Obama's black half to show up in Washington.
I wonder how people of U.S.till think in racial point of view every issues?We are living in21Th century.Obama is not black his mother was white. Obama Was brought up by white grandfather and mother.He is genuine American.
I found this bit of political satire labored and overly long.

Really good political satire has a germ of truth at its base. The underpinning of this bit seems to be that Obama's Icarean fall from grace is due to America's gradual realization not that he's a collectivist political hack but rather that he's black. Sort of a hard sell, that.

I did enjoy the clothing ads, though.
Wolfie, thanks! LOL!
Don't read Gordon Osmonds BS, I have had to censor that douche on my own blog and delete his ridiculous postings.. he is a flame war pro.
Love Yah!
"Don't read," " delete," " censor." Wonderful advice from a real exponent of free speech. If I ever was misguided enough to contribute to this cipher's blogs, I apologize.
No worries teresa, there's one in every crowd. I've learned to accept that only 95% of people will thing I'm great ;)
will thing I'm great ;)

I'm assuming that the winking emoticon is all about "thing."
enjoyed the laugh -- at your post and at Gordo the Magnificent -- at least in his own mind
Ironically enough, Barack's white side shares a common ancestor with George Bush and Sara Palin, an acceptor named Samuel Hinckley who lived in Massachussets in 1700s. He is also cousins with Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, Dick Cheney, Thomas Madison and Robert E. Lee. My source is wargs.com which has genealogies of politicians.
