Obama's website pitches post-election flexiblity for African-Americans
The Daily Caller ^ | 4/2/12 | Neil Munro - The Daily Caller

Posted on 04/03/2012 6:04:17 AM PDT by Haiku Guy

President Barack Obama’s under-the-radar campaign to spur turnout in the African-American community is echoing the promise of post-election flexibility given last month to Russian strongman Vladimir Putin.

“What really excites me about [an Obama re-election] is that a U.S. president has only two terms,” Tatyana Ali, an Obama-boosting actress, says in a video on the African-American section of Obama’s campaign website.

“In the second term, it’s on, because we don’t have to worry about re-election,” says a laughing Ali, whose video was produced by Black Entertainment TV.

In the second term, it's on...

In other words, the nonsense we are seeing with George Zimmerman and the New Black Panthers is just the warm-up act. After his last election, Obama is going to really get started...

I wonder if he’ll tell the Black Community that they “punch above their weight class” at the voting booth?

This combined with yesterday’s news from Van Jones that they would vote for him even if he came out and let them know he is gay? The black community might end up with Obama in a Prom Dress.

That’s why I’m torn on this election. Few if any of the Republican candidates are what we need to really turn the country around, and if they do the same stuff dear leader is doing now, Republicans are going to get the blame when the $hit hits the fan and we might never see them elected again.

However, even though I’d rather dear leader be in office when things go south, he’s going to see his re-election as a mandate on his BS and is probably going to go full steam ahead with whatever plans he’s been keeping under wraps. And as it’s said here, he won’t have to worry about re-election, so what incentive would he have to do a good job (not that he’s even come close)?

We need to start tracking the promises that Obama is making under-the radar.

The Russians have been promised that he will gut our missile defense.

The Mexicans have been promised that he will push through amnesty and open the border.

The Gun-grabbers have been promised he will be all-in for gun control.

And now he is promising the African American community that “it’s on”, whatever that means, when he has more flexibility after his last election.

I was mulling the idea that Obama II might be better for the country that Romney, because Obama would be legislatively paralyzed, but Romney would be able to force through Democrat-Agenda-Lite by “reaching across the aisle” and all that swill.

But Obama is so outside-the-lines, that normal thinking no longer applies. As much as it pains me to say it, we will have to throw in our lot with Romney and hope for the best.

Why do they even bother calling themselves ‘African- Americans’? They need to just drop the ‘American’ part and let it all hang out.

I have yet to speak to an AA who puts being American before their own selfish interests.

No, this and a hundred other things is why you should not be “torn”. A reelected Obama will be a leftist coming of Hell on Earth.

I think many don’t realize, America can be destroyed in a nuclear war and we have a president who intends to disarm us. We’re a hop skip and jump from disaster.

“My thinking on that point has evolved... “

I’m glad that you can see the situation for what it is, rather than be blinded by rage about not getting a “pure” conservative.

Romney isn’t great, but the man isn’t a Marxist, and he doesn’t hate America as it’s currently constituted. Compare and contrast that to the current occupant of the White House.

Those I know who do not have a lack of pigment like I do.....

“watch out, as everyone with a gripe, fear their EBT will not work/free stuff is not given/all and anything including a paper cut, are being primed to action”

This quote through my friends, ranging from 18 through 87 (whom I respect and have presented for on many occasion, he is a very wise man) chills them to the bone as they are fighting internally, what to do, who do we side with, how can i take the life of one I call friend???

As I stated, thousands, tens of thousands shall die, on all sides....... for what.... the manipulation by those in power to stay in power....

I may well be one of them who dies, I can not run and dodge like a young person.... but I shall not go out on my knees.

Not a chance. Not as long as the bread and circuses hold out.

Americans are well fed, they have their smart phones, the internet, and Real Housewives of some city on TV. As long as all that exists, they don’t care.

Combine the recent quip to Medvedev about post-election flexibility with leftists comments in the past about "Oh, wouldn't it be just great if we could have a dictator for a few years to fix things?".

Amazing that a guy who already has 97% of a voting bloc has to work so hard to keep it.

But then, that goes for the RAT Party in general. They have to win at least 90% of the black vote in order to even have a chance.

"Reparations, perhaps?"

Yes, probably in multiple forms; and probably a lot more to bring down the country - crippling the energy industry, drastic defense reductions, massive government programs guaranteeing a majority of the country is dependent, etc. etc.

Reparations has been the basis of all his policy so far, anyway.

He’ll just be more blatant about it.
AA’s were expecting a “big check” and some sort of oppression to be specifically directed at white people.

No reparations so far as a check.

Seems I remember him saying something along the lines of it not being about money, because money wasn’t enough.

No matter what though. He and his ‘wife’ will make whitey pay.

Look up what happened in Atlanta not long ago. Section 8 housing was offered- 13,000 applications were going to be taken. 30,000 showed up and the situation escalated to where riot police had to be called in.

This is the American BO has dreamed of. Torn, broken, hopeless and destitute.

I wonder how the "African-American" community would feel about this:

"in our new Caucasian President's first term, it will be great for all Caucasians and it's going to be "game on" for African-Americans. In fact, since there's more of us than there is of them, it's "game on" forever....ha....ha...ha"

I'm betting that statement wouldn't sit too well with them. I propose we knock off the "African" crap, we all start acting like Americans who need to save their desperately sinking Republic and get down to business....together.

This pretender-for-a-president can be a racist as he wants to be, and nobody in the msm will call him out on it.

If he wins reelection, our country is doomed, for real.

If Obama is re-elected and ‘it’s on’(reparations/massive redistribution), then I,personally, will not fear anything.

Rather,I will enjoy the karma inflicted on the ‘useful idiots’ in the media,academia, people with a “Jan 16 2008, end of an Error’ bumper sticker,etc as they live out a scene from Dr Zhivago.

I will have a BIG smile on my face as the lefties are forced to share their possessions along with vacate their homes to the very people they have claim ‘society has abandoned’.

As a black panther points a gun at their head and tells the lefty to move out in to shed, the look on the face of the lefties will be priceless!

From Page 2 of the Article:

The Obama campaign established the African-American portion of the website in February. It initially featured a racially tinged video message from the president, in which he said that previous generations of African-Americans “made it possible for someone like me to be here today… [and] we are greater together than we can ever be on our own.”

Obama is also using various African-American personalities to tout his re-election campaign, including Ahmir Khalib Thompson, a member of the band “The Roots.”

Obama “promised [in 2008] to bring real change and hope to our country and community as a whole,” Thompson says in a video hosted by the Obama’s campaign website. “This is not a quick fix. It’s not like you can take a wand, ‘BING,’ make magic overnight. He needs eight years to finish the mission and we need to have his back,” Thompson says.

Makes you wonder what kind of "magic" Ahmir Khalib Thompson is waiting for...

BTW, Ahmir Khalib Thompson is the man behind the "Lying-Ass Bitch" walk-on music for Michelle Bachmann on the Jimmy Fallon show.
