"In black America—where people have been voting for Presidential candidates who didn’t share their racial background since even before the Fifteenth Amendment—the 2008 election wasn’t seen as the star-spangled “Kumbaya” it was billed as elsewhere. White rejoicing at Obama’s racial landmark seemed tone deaf, unduly self-congratulatory. White voters had simply done something black voters had been doing for at least the previous hundred and thirty-four years."
"That’s why it’s important to remember that our businesses are not dependent on who’s in the White House. The President may make the wrong decisions or follow the wrong path. Or he may be right. Regardless, the American economy will continue to churn away."
