11. Yes he is the most obstructed & disrespected President in the last 60 yrs at least I don't think all

Republican office holders and party bosses did it because he is black. After all, they came after Clinton with everything they had, but their game was a lot weaker then. I do think that the non-bigoted politicians and party bosses knew their base was a bunch of bigots and leveraged that. They wouldn't have tried the scorched earth approach without knowing there would be no accountability for their actions.

Remember how Clinton's popularity went up after the impeachment hearings? I believe if President Obama were white they would still have tried to undermine him but it wouldn't have come in the form of a personal attack. They would be too concerned with voter backlash and sympathy for him.
