Skip to comments.Blacks Stung By Bill Clinton's Remarks
Posted on 01/25/2008 8:01:44 AM PST by AmericanMade1776
For nearly two decades, Yvette Wider, an African American, adored Bill Clinton, once described by a famous black novelist as the nation's first black president.
But now, after Clinton's "fairy tale" remark about Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in New Hampshire and a statement in South Carolina that Obama had put a political "hit job" on him, Wider said she feels she hardly knows the former president. "I was surprised to hear him make a comment like that, because I thought he understood our people better," said Wider, who said she will vote for Obama in Saturday's South Carolina primary. "It made me think he's been playing us all this time."
Wider's sentiments are echoing across black America -- on blogs, Web chats and talk radio, where Clinton is being attacked as never before.

Black people are realizing this, finally.
“It made me think he’s been playing us all this time.”
Wait for it...wait for it...
There it is.
What amazes me is how blacks seem to believe, despite the evidence, that liberals are their friends when, in fact, liberals tend to talk a good game but live in almost all-white communities like, well, Chappaqua.
Welcome to the club, honey. For some, it just takes a little longer to catch on than others.
It would be a tragedy to elect these criminals to the White House again.
Take it and like it.
If Hillary wins the nomination who do you think they will vote for. The blacks will never change trains.
I hope I detect the hand of Karl Rove in this somehow. It could not have been scripted better. Clinton comes out of this looking like a racist and Obama, well, everyone is reminded that the only reason he’s even IN the race is because of race. If he were white, whith his resume, he’d be begging for Kucinich-level numbers.
Vincent Foster: A White House deputy counsel and long-time personal friend of Bill and Hillary’s. Found on July 20, 1993, dead of a gunshot wound to the mouth
Jim McDougal: Bill and Hillary Clinton friend, banker, and political ally, sent to prison for eighteen felony convictions. A key whitewater witness, dies of a heart attack on March, 8 1998.
“Black people are realizing this, finally.”
And yet, when it comes to giving the vote between dhims and reps, the latter loses overwhelmingly.
Always amused me when we lived in New England to see Rose Kennedy's Birthday being covered by the local news media.
The Kennedys - such stalwart champions of minorities - scions of political correctness - and the only minorities at the parties were either holding microphones or serving trays.
Mary C. Mahoney: 25, murdered at the Georgetown Starbuck’s coffee bar over the 4th of July ‘97 weekend. She was a former White House intern who worked with John Huang. Apparently she knew Monica Lewinsky and her sexual encounters with Bill Clinton. Although not verified, it has been said that Lewinsky told Linda Tripp that she did not want to end up like Mahoney.
Odd isn't it, that they do not realize that it was Republicans who freed the slaves, and Democrats who were the slave owners.
MOre stupidity demonstrated by the clinton followers — it only took 10 years for this half-wit to borrow a brain?
Yvette baby, the Clintons like you the way they like their coffee: Black and contained and ready to throw away if you turn cold on them.
And they’ll instantly forget every bit of this melodrama when Hillary picks Obama for Veep.
The Arkansas Mafia’s evil, but they aren’t stupid. They aren’t going to seriously jeopardize their monopoly on black votes. African American voters are being played like a fiddle.
Must be terrible , to suddenly realize that you have been “used” by the Clintons for 20 years.
