Obama Pledges To Help Native Americans: 'You Will Not Be Forgotten'
President Obama told Native American tribal leaders this morning that they had a friend in the White House who would work to ensure that the federal government would now meet their needs.

No Victim Group Left Un-Pimped.
Bailout the indians?? They’re pretty much a welfare case and we’ve been bailing them out for years.
More free booze and give them more permits for casinos in exchange for Democrat party donations.
I am part native-American.
I have spent time on a reservation amidst hopeless drug/alcohol addictions and third rate veterinary care, oops I meant Obama-style government health care.
Obama’s recession is a profound economic depression on the reservations.
What year are we in? 1890?
Anyone born in this country is a native American. Meet our needs BO!
Forgot our troops, didn’t he!
Translation: America sucks. But I’m here to make good.
Isn't that ideally what they are supposed to want?
To be left alone?
President Obama hosted a major gathering of the American Indian Nation. The President spoke for almost an hour on his future plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living. He referred to his career as a U.S. Senator, how he had said “YES” for every Indian issue that came to his desk for approval. Although Obama was vague on the details of his plan, he seemed most enthusiastic about his future ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers”.
At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented the President with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name -”Walking Eagle”. The proud President then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds. A news reporter later inquired to the groups chiefs of how they came to select of the new name given to the President.
They explained that “Walking Eagle” is a name given to a bird so full of sh#t it can no longer fly!
All hail the great Chief Walking Eagle.
What a load of BS! The native Americans are just migrated Europeans, just like the rest of us! Actually they are migrated Eurasians who crossed a frozen Bering Strait and squatted on the land also.
My children are half native American and in no way feel victiized by anybody because they were taught REAL history and not the socialized version being pimped in public schools today playing blame and victimization games with the heads of our children.
Beat me by 8 seconds!
Gee, the federal gubbermint has done such a wonderful job of “taking care of their needs” in the past...
Government dependency is a deadly addiction.
Anyone born in the USA is a native ....
Then he congratulated them on their assistance with the environment by never coming up with the wheel. And he praised their endangered species work preserving headlice.
Is anyone now surprised that one of Barry’s commie picks to operate out of the Whote HOuse, Van Jones, has shouted ‘give them the wealth, no more broken treaties, give them the wealth’ ... these race baiting commies in the White HOuse want to foment as much hate and division as they can drum up, to cover their campaign to end the Republic and establish an iron fisted federal oligarchy which will piss on all races and creeds equally, except those who have aided and abetted the commie takeover, like SEIU, the greenies, and social justice criminals like ACORN.
Although it’s true that back in the beginnings of our Republic Indians were treated harshly by our government - but - to read their history, they treated each other the same way - killing, slavery, etc. It was the DOI that hyphenated Americans. We’re the only country to do so.
The tribes may find that government interest in them extends to their gaming profits as a tax item. Let no tax source go untapped is a Democrat mantra.
Obama’s Indian name is “man-with-head-up-@$$”
I’ll bet they’ve heard that song and dance before.
Yes the only group he hasn't promised to squander taxpayer funded largesse on is the taxpayers.
“You Will Not Be Forgotten”
Just ignored (as usual) - no cabinet posts, no Supreme Court consideration, no ambassadorships ....
... but you won’t be forgotten!
What a strange statement. It sounds like they'll be gone soon...as in 'gone but not forgotten'...what exactly are his plans for the Indians?
Tanto, what say you about the _resident’s speech? Hmm, Kemosabe, sounds like he lying. How can you tell, Tanto? Hmm Kemosabe, his lips moving...
My wife is native also.
Do the tribes know the dems are behind this crap?
WE went to see Chief Crazy Horse monument in the Black Hills. Beautiful.
The tribes have almost all of the uranium in the states.
That will be key in the future.
What you say is true but is that worse than giving billions of dollars to countries around the world that hate our guts and send suicide bomber here to blow us up. And the billions more we give to banana republics in central and South America that are commie dictator regimes? What the Indians get is mere pennies compared to those. And lastly, why did you pick an Indian name as your screen name?
I was thinking something similar. I FINALLY know what Obama’s major problem is and that his real goal is to be liked. He wants everyone to like him. I believe it goes back to his childhood. He probably urned for attention and nurturing and he never got it. I think that is a big problem for him and could be the reason for some of his actions.
Right on! Many of them, for a very long time, have also fought for this country right along with non-Indians. Although I’m not Indian myself; there is a lot I can admire in them as a whole, as well as many individually!
I had a few friends that were Indian. One I worked with and some I was in school with, and some who brought their kids to a day-care I worked for! The one I worked with gave me a lot of valuable insights into what it was to be Indian. Not in so many words at once, but what I gleaned in many conversations! We had many similarities.
Both of us were mothers of teens, both close to the same age, both of us had families with drinking or drug problems, both of us had troubles with spouses or boy friends in the past, etc..
Dude. If I was any of my Indian friends, I’d RUN for the nearest exit. “Help” from the Democrats/Socialists for Indians is NOT what they need. Welfare in any form is a society-killing, photo-opping travesty.
Not all of them. The Plains tribes had a tradition of counting coup, basically playing tag instead of killing each other.
Why all the hatred for Native Americans? I’m a Cherokee who has proudly never accepting any money from any white politician. I pulled myself out of the reservation (the stories are true, mostly drunks and drug addicts) and am now a successful writer in New York. The only killing I do is to the egos of the hoards of lib-tards who surround me every day with my witty barbs and charismatic rhetoric.
I don’t think any of todays whites are responsible for what happened to Native Americans, but you got to admit they got a pretty raw deal back in the day, haha.
ANOTHER apology for America; another promise of taxpayer debt to be added so he can buy more votes.
His lying knows no bounds, claiming the largest gathering in History, as usual, he is The Messiah, so we cannot question his "facts", or be called racists if we do (I guess I am a racist, once again!)
" Omaha Tribe encampment at the Indian Congress
The Indian Congress occurred from August 4 to October 31, 1898 in Omaha, Nebraska, in conjunction with the Trans-Mississippi International Exposition. Occurring within a decade of the end of the Indian Wars, the Indian Congress was the largest gathering of American Indian tribes of its kind to that date. Over 500 members of 35 different tribes attended, including the Apache chief Geronimo, who was being held at Fort Sill as a United States prisoner of war.
I agree - I don’t know why all the hatred for Indians (I have several Indian friends who tell me it’s best to call them by their tribe names rather than NA’s) - I’ve read lots of stories about how the early settlers abused the local Indians (stuff you don’t read in public government schools - I was home schooled) .....
ps - they also gave me an Indian name of “Janey Sky Girl” ....
“You Will Not Be Forgotten...”
...in our ongoing and active program to “get even” with whitey.
I believe the race Marxist’s exact words were:
“Its OUR time now.”
I pay income taxes on my gaming profits.
