I am grateful that President Obama had the American flag lowered to half mast for Dick Clark--wait--that was for Whitney Houston. My bad. Perhaps if Dick was a singer who drowned in a bathtub resulting from a drug overdose the flags would have been lowered; or perhaps if he had been black, there would have been greater presidential respect paid to him. Perhaps, but Obama's history doesn't seem to support this possibility.
What has become clear to me is how Obama has divided us. Now it's black vs. white, men vs. women, Democrats vs. Republicans, conservatives vs. liberal Marxists/socialists, and government vs. religion. He is undoubtedly the most divisive president in our nation's history and he needs to be the most divisive one term president in our history.
