Angry White Guy

That's me! An angry white guy! Well, I guess I'm at least mostly white. My momma told me I was 1/16th Cherokee Indian and who knows, some of my ancestors may have procreated with some of their slaves.............you never know.

Anyway, I was just reading on Drudge that "White Men Shun Democrats". Interesting concept.

The article states that in 2008 41 percent of white men voted for Obama. This was somewhat of a breakout as prior to 2008, the Dems had managed to capture a maximum of only 38 percent of the white male voters. Presently, only 35 percent of white male voters claim to support Democrats.

Women, on the other hand, consistently have much higher support for Democrats.

What is it about those angry white guys? Well, like it or not, it was angry white guys that caused this country to become great, and I think the notion of individual freedom and liberty, personal responsibility, the constitution, small gunment, and the right to life, are predominately an angry white male thing. Now I'm not taking anything away from the women down through our history that also did great things.

But what is it about women that make them different in the political arena? Sweet Wifey is more or less the same as me in her political beliefs, but that's not the case universally. In my experience, most of the people that I know personally who supported Barack Obama were women. Most of the people I know today who still defend him are women (although I find fewer and fewer every day that will admit they ever liked him at all).

Anyway, I'd be curious to hear about the gender differences. As for me, I'm an angry white male, getting angrier by the minute, and proud of it!

Just looking at Nancy Pelosi is enough to make anyone angry.

  1. I don't have an answer to your question about Women, other than perhaps it was mostly young, teenage, college age, women who voted for him. I would never vote for him, not because of his color, because of his socialist beliefs.
