Cooks says this in his opinion piece about why he voted for Obama.
"I voted for him for a number of reasons. The major reason was black citizens needed this recognition after being third class citizens since colonial days."
Now we have first hand information from the mouth of a democrat operative. We all knew they voted for Obama because of his color not for his qualifications. A democrat affirmative action vote apparently. I want to thank Mr. Cooks for finally being honest and for also exposing his party for what they really are. They don't care about the issues affecting our country, jobs, unemployment, fiscal health and the rest of the issues Americans really care about, he is simply concerned about skin color. I call that racist politics.
Cooks then goes on to trash the Republican candidates which is fine in our free speech country. However, after telling us he really voted for Obama simply because he is black it seems implausible he could trash Republicans because they debate the issues. This position by Cooks shows why democrats are headed for the dustbin. We on the right want people elected to solve issues and heal the country. Cooks and the democrats are stuck in the past and can't seem to move into the 21st century. They destroyed Bill Clinton's bridge and can't move into the future. Thanks to people like Cooks, those democrat activists will be unable to convince most Americans that their reasons for governance is based on anything except skin color. I am ashamed of Cooks for his position but happy he finally told the truth.
