Byron York's "New 3/5 Compromise"

President Obama's approval ratings are at a soaring 67%. However, according to Washington Examiner Op-Ed columnist Byron York, that number may not be completely accurate. York stated last week that, "his sky-high ratings among African-Americans make some of his positions appear a bit more popular overall than they actually are." This is very reminiscent of our founding father's three fifths compromise, in which black [slaves] were only given 3/5 of a vote. It is a fact that all Democratic politicians are more popular among blacks than whites, so York spinning this trend as a unique attribute of Obama's is, well, obscenely racist. He's basically saying, "African" Americans make it hard to gauge the opinions of "actual" Americans. Wow, what a shithead.
