Very true, but the mere suggestion of it makes you a racist according to the left.

(Politico) — Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a former Hillary Clinton fundraiser who is now a major financial backer of the Jon Huntsman campaign, explains her opposition to President Obama in some . . . indelicate terms:

She said she is still registered as a Democrat, but considers herself independent and won’t support the party as long as Obama is president.

“America needs a president who understands the special sauce of what it is that makes this country great,” she said. “The fact of his personal story of being half black and all that is a wonderful, inspiriting story. But it doesn’t qualify him to be president.”

The comment echoes a common, 2008-vintage complaint among Hillary Clinton supporters that Obama — as Geraldine Ferraro put it — “happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”
