You are reading too much into that one line, it says right there that Obama had an edge in 2008, we just got rid of Bush, were in an economic crisis plus a war and Obama swoops in with his angel wings, serenades everybody and gets a lot of votes...oh and that one fact about blacks voting for him along with everybody else with the extra incentive there being he was the first black Presidential nominee. NOTHING unusual. He was still a Democrat. If Obama was a Republican and got 96% of the black vote, you'd have a really good argument.
You assume that it is only possible for blacks to have been excited that we were seeing history in 2008 and that the only motivation for blacks to vote back then was solely because of the black guy in the business suit.
That's all you took away from the 4 articles I posted. Telling. Did you forget about the article that says votership increased by 2 million in the Black, Latino, and Asian communities?
