Obama Poses A Bigger Threat Than Russia Or China ?

This chart was made from information contained in a new Reuters / IPSOS Poll. It was done between March 16th and 24th of a random national sample of 1,059 Republicans, and has a margin of error of 3.4 points.

The survey asked Republicans which leaders posed an imminent danger or a serious threat to the United States -- and the Republicans showed their shameful ideological and racial views. They rated President Obama as being a bigger danger to this nation than either Putin of Russia or Xi Jinping of  China (the only nations on the list that actually have the military power to be a danger to this country).

In fact, the only leader they rated as being a bigger imminent danger to the U.S. than President Obama is Kim Jong-un of North Korea. And when you combine the imminent & serious scores, only Kim Jong-un and Ayatollah Khomenei of Iran were rated as bigger dangers to this country.

How dare they say such an outrageous thing about our president!

They will probably claim it is because of his leftist policies, but anyone with half a brain knows that is not true. We have had far more liberal presidents than President Obama (Roosevelt, Kennedy, Johnson), and Republicans would not have claimed they posed a greater danger than foreign leaders that didn't like us. Any reasonable person examining President Obama's policies will quickly realize that he is a moderate (in the tradition of Clinton or Carter).

They make this outrageous assertion, just like many more of their assertions about our president, for one reason only -- because he's a Black man living in the White House. Not every Republican is a racist, but far too many of them are these days -- enough of them to accuse him of being a danger to this country. They should be ashamed, but shame doesn't seem to be possible in the current Republican Party.
