Rep. Moran: Dems Lost Because Many 'Don't Want to Be Governed by an African-American'

I belong to no group, I am my own man. I don't care if the president is black (or half black), white, brown, yellow or even purple. What I do care about is his ability to do the job, the job as it is described in the Constitution of the United States of America.

I am more qualified to be president than obama. I have run a business, met a payroll, hired and fired. I have worked hard all my life to care for the ones I love. No one has ever given me anything. Everything I have I earned. I care more about this Nation and the ideal of this Nation than life itself. Yet, I would never presume to be presidential.

The reasons I rail against obama and his corrupt administration have NOTHING to do with the color of his skin. He is not only unqualified, his beliefs do not mesh with those that the Founding Fathers of this great Country risked everything for. obama believes that we should all be cared for by the government wether we want it or not. A cradle to grave entitlement society kills the American spirit. Taking from those who have worked hard all their lives to care for people to lazy to care for themselves goes against everything most people in this Country stand for.

obama wishes us to become another third world nation. A few wealthy people at the top, millions and millions of poor people at the bottom, and nothing in the middle. And all those millions depending on the government for their every need.

jim moran is attempting to stir up a controversy. He has nothing to base this claim on, he has no evidence to back it up. If he truly wants to view racism, he needs to look no farther than obama and eric holder. The two of them have succeeded in setting race relations back 30 years. There are probably those who have seen the racism exhibited by holder and obama and are angered by it, but I would guess many of them don't vote.

The election in November was a direct reflection of the policies obama has forced on us in the two years he has been in office. No matter how loud we spoke, he and nancy pelosi and harry reid refused to hear us. They pursued their radical agenda to their own peril. We spoke in a different way in November, we voted out many of the people who betrayed our trust. In 2012 we will vote out more of them. We will keep voting them out until those we elect hear what we are saying.

We don't want to be a socialist nation. We don't want to have the government intrude into every part of our lives. We want to go to work, enjoy our families, live our lives and be free...

Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran is blaming his party's losses last November in large part on voters who "don't want to be governed by an African-American."

The comments were made following President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday during an interview with Arab network Alhurra. Asked about the results of the midterm elections, the Virginia congressman compared the political environment to that which preceded the Civil War and suggested race was a determining factor.

"It happened ... for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States," Moran said. "Southern states, particularly the slaveholding states, didn't want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.

"In this case a lot of people in this country, it's my belief, don't want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society. And that's a basic philosophical clash," Moran said.

Moran attributed his party's opposition to an "uneasiness" with President Obama, saying the criticism comes from a "selfish and close-minded perspective."

Reached for comment, Moran's office stood by the remarks.

"With nearly 1,000 identified hate groups in the U.S. and recent studies showing a majority of Americans believe racism is still widespread against African-Americans, it is no secret that our country has and continues to struggle with racial equality," spokeswoman Anne Hughes said in an e-mail. "The congressman was expressing his frustration with this problem and the role it played in the last election. Rather than ignore this issue or pretend it isn't there, the congressman believes we are better off discussing it in order to overcome it."
