Being likewise British, I have no horse in this race. But this ^^^ is the part that always blows my mind. The sheer contortions that so much of the US citizenship puts themselves through to justify claiming that Obama has no right to be president, from the toothless redneck on the trailer park to the Republican wingnut in Congress. And all because they just can't handle there being a black guy in charge.

There are plenty of us in the US who totally agree with you.
Well it might also be a case of a Black Democrat being in charge. But perhaps rather than bitch and moan about it how about doing something radical like you know finding a suitable candidate that can appeal to the majority of Americans in order to win the next Presidential Election in 2016.
The more you bitch and moan about something the more like petulant children you sound. As for members of congress that behave like that, you are supposed to be statesmen act like it. You'll earn more respect from the electorate.
Thankfully as a Brit American Congressmen and women don't have to court my vote.
Oh and just to add, I actually had to google this the UK's first Black Cabinet Minister
