Since this week's talking point is "Some people just can’t believe a black man is president and will never accept it," let's address that shall we? It's not just Dowd and it isn't new, Politico delved into the issue quoting several Democrats including Gwen Dawkins, Democratic activist from Michigan who thinks all conservative anger toward Obama is about race.

“Black people have lived under white presidents since day one,” Dawkins observed, “So would you give him a chance?”
Do those who think it's all about race want us to give him a chance - or do they expect us to just roll over and let him do what he wants?
