Republicans could make big gains in November as high unemployment and slowing growth turns voters away from Obama's Democrats, potentially costing them control of Congress.

Uh, do ya think??!!

It has NOTHING to do about race, it has everything to do about incompetence. Sheesh!!

But it would be racist to urge whites to vote to stop the change!

Yea, but he will still get 95% of the black vote.

Racmisms! Typical worn over platitudes of racial politics.

It’s acceptable to address Blacks as a group, race or whatever and it’s not racist. 97% of Blacks vote for
Zer0 and that’s not considered unusual or questioned.

Why do Afro_Americans need Black leaders? It seems like indentured servitude not freedom.

"Guard the change"???

You mean like the now 20% unemployment rate among young black men? That change? You mean like the highest ever recorded stat for percentage of Americans in poverty? That change?

Those so-called black leaders should have stood up and booed Obama in unison for that remark. Too bad they're all as degraded and as compromised as he is. I'll bet they all stood and clapped.

Sad to say, but if Obama told black America to drink the Jim Jones koolaid 95% would gladly do it.

It's an illness of the mind. A variant of that mental affliction called liberalism.

"Afro-Americans". Man, that phrase takes me back. Ain't heard that one since I was a young fool.

If that was his primary goal I doubt he would have been able to mask his true intentions this long.

I get the impression it's his parting shot at a country that rejects his marxist agenda.

Actually I believe it will be way less than that, Obama’s stash has not been used to purchase fuel for the cars or the cars that are needed to get them to the polls, and if it is cold and raining on election day, the Black Leaders better get the school buses fueled and ready to pick them up and get them to the polls.

Yes it would be just as Obama’s call for blacks to guard change is racist.

I am no white. But, I am just as angry at the “change” as any American can be. Dont need racial division to help me decide the best future for America.

he wanted their support to "guard the change" he was delivering.

So in other words Obama is admitting that he did not create this mess because he is incompetent or stupid. He is admitting that he has done this to the country on purpose.

They have to support him. They’ve invested literally everything in this guy. They invested their trust, hopes, dreams, everything. If this guy (Obama) ‘fails’ as a President, then by proxy, in their minds, they’ve failed. It means the chances of electing another guy like this in the future as president will pretty much never happen, because everyone will think of Barry and all the crap he pulled. It’s quite sad actually.

Recently I saw the office of some local (black) worker whose desk was set up as a sort of shrine to BO, with all sorts of pictures of BO and BO memorabilia on it.

I think you're talking about a voter like that.

“I can’t believe that any such person would still see Republicans as the greater of the two evils.”

I still contend that Obambie would get 90+ percent of the black vote.
I was born and spent all but the last ten years in west Tennessee.
I know the blacks and their mind?set, what there is of it.
Obambie will also still get the “red diaper doper baby” (Marxist)hippie/deadbeat vote.

As for the “mad as hell” angry white democrat, many of those will defect.

The stupid white mainstream voters that were just so mad at Bush and wanted to make a statement, the type that cut their nose off to spite their face, all will defect from Obambie.
