And elects few with brown eyes?June 5, 2016 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #1154549
Because blond haired, blue eyes is the master race.June 5, 2016 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #1154550theprof1Participant
Blue eyes show up nicely in news photos and on TV. They also wear blue ties.June 6, 2016 1:00 am at 1:00 am #1154551MammeleParticipant
You do realize that Obama doesn’t fit this profile? America is changing to be more multi-cultural, and with it sometimes the presidency will look different. And although I’m no fan of Obama or Clinton, overall I think it’s a move in the right direction.
American leaders shouldn’t all look WASPY. I’m not pro affirmative action either, but neither should we exclude anyone based on their race or looks.June 6, 2016 2:49 am at 2:49 am #1154552
America was much better off more WASPy than the hill it’s fast been going down since the 60s, when there immigration quotas were gutted from preserving America’s heritage as a mostly British/European culture.June 6, 2016 4:24 am at 4:24 am #1154553
“America was much better off more WASPy than the hill it’s fast been going down since the 60s, when there immigration quotas were gutted “
Proof that “Joseph” is not Jewish but an anti-Semitic troll. It was those WASPs who wanted to preserve America as a WASP paradise who put on those quotas in the 1920s, leading directly to the deaths of six million Jews who had nowhere to flee.June 6, 2016 4:27 am at 4:27 am #1154554
” when there immigration quotas were gutted “
Proof that “Joseph” is an ignoramus, too. There were no quotas at all on immigration from anywhere in the Western Hemisphere until 1965. One person whose parents arrived during that no-quota period is Judge Gonzalo Paul Curiel, who has been the target of the shameful racist attacks from Donald Trump. Judge Curiel’s parents came legally and were US Citizens by the time he was born — in Indiana.June 6, 2016 4:30 am at 4:30 am #1154555
What is a bit more interesting is that we have had a tendency in recent decades to elect lefty Presidents — left-handers, that is. George Herbert Walker Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama are all left-handed.June 6, 2016 5:56 am at 5:56 am #1154556MammeleParticipant
Joseph: you’re lumping America’s slant to the left with immigration, and I don’t think they’re one and the same. And after calling (sarcastically I hope) blond and blue-eyed the master race, and then go on to say how much better off the country was as British/European, strikes me as self-hating.
I was referring to Hillary Clinton above, not Bill. Her eye color is not naturally blue, but hazel.June 6, 2016 7:22 am at 7:22 am #1154557
The left is whom opened the floodgates in the 60s, Mammele. And certainly America was better off with a culture heavily more European/English than the increases in crime and non-English (who unlike earlier immigrants insist on receiving election ballots and everything else in their foreign languages) that came since the 60s immigration changes that altered America’s composition.June 6, 2016 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #1154558cherrybimParticipant
Americans having dark brown eyes account for only 25% of the population. Stands to reason that most USA presidents do/did not have dark eyes.June 6, 2016 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #1154559yekusiel11Participant
Because blue eyes match the blue on the American flag.June 6, 2016 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #1154560PhilParticipant

There you go again with your historical distortions!
The main impediment to Jewish immigration was your hero, FDR, yemach shemo. The Democrats had large majorities in both houses of Congress for nearly all of his twelve years in office and could have opened the gates to Europe’s Jews. His anti-Semitic administration wouldn’t even meet with the hundreds of Rabbis who came to Washington in 1943 to plead their cause. FDR was perfectly happy to watch six million Jews reduced to ash and he’s now suffering the same fate for all eternity.June 7, 2016 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #1154561
“The main impediment to Jewish immigration was your hero, FDR, yemach shemo.”
Sorry, but the immigration quotas were enacted by the Republicans in 1924. They gave FDR no authority to admit even a single refugee.June 7, 2016 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1154562
“And certainly America was better off with a culture heavily more European/English “
Spain is in Europe.June 7, 2016 5:43 pm at 5:43 pm #1154563PhilParticipant
Your hero, FDR, yemach shemo, could have worked with his majorities in Congress to lift the quotas and allow Jews into the country, thereby saving them. I had conversations with the Historians of the U.S. House and Senate, who confirmed this. When I asked them why he didn’t, they each quietly replied that they didn’t know.
The uncomfortable truth is that he was an anti-Semite and gladly took advice from other anti-Semites, including liberal Jews, who didn’t want to see their European brethren flooding into the U.S.
