The Bigotry of Obama's Supporters

What does it take for President Obama to be forced to accept the responsibilities of his position?

The U.S. didn't cleanse itself of it's racist past by electing Obama; it will only come when we hold him to the same standards that we would were he white. This business of giving him a pass that would be afforded no other president is just another form of racism. George W. Bush called it "the soft bigotry of low expectations" - that phrase describes what's happening with Obama perfectly.
