Posted on 03/12/2010 12:39:18 PM PST by RobinMasters
In some ways, one can sympathize with the Congressional Black Caucus. When America elected its first African-American President, they assumed that they would have unprecedented access to the White House and more influence on policy than ever before. After fourteen months, though, theyre disgruntled enough to start talking to the Washington Post about being taken for granted:
A year ago, members of the Congressional Black Caucus openly wept at Barack Obamas inauguration. Slowly, that euphoria has given way to frustration that his administration has not done more for black America. Questions about how to elect him have been replaced by questions about how to prod him.
For many, it is the surprise of a political lifetime that they find themselves wrestling with such quandaries. Alternately puzzled and disgruntled, CBC members say key people in the Obama administration have taken them for granted, in the belief that black members of Congress have no stomach for a fight with the countrys first black president.

I cannot believe anyone is that stupid.
he is enemy.
Its his white side. Its racist.
Obama is a little rich kid.
He could care less about the problems of being black in the US.
His whole health plan Obama Care is a transfer of wealth from Republicans to Democrats, or from middle-income whites to minorities.
CBC... what is it you want that you’re not already getting (your “man” in the White House is working on taking from the “haves” and giving it to the have-nots)?
Obama not black. He a Arab.
Obama not black. He a Arab.
Gee,Free health care,free student loans and he’s just getting started you dumb f****!
Actually, Obama has been throwing tons of money to the black community. He just hasn’t been giving the Black Caucus the kind of major pork deals they expected. The bribes aren’t big enough.
Klinton had to prove he was black by bribing them. Obama doesn’t.
The reason democrats take blacks for granted is that they can take them for granted.
No. Because all the rich Dems will continue to lose money as his plans are carried out.
You think only Republicans hold stocks and bonds?
Bill Gates lost $30 billion all by himself.
Better question: Why should anybody pay any attention to the ravings of the ignorant corrupt racists who make up the BCC??
Let’s see...if you have an old beater in the driveway; what do you do with it? You drive it to pick up manure at Home Depot...you drive it until it breaks down...you sure don’t put any money in it because it’s an old beater.
"I'll have another slice of your delicious schadenfreude, please, with extra whipped cream."
Normally I don’t respond to ignorant trolls like you, but I suspect you’re a DU’er or DailyKos’er so I’ll respond for the lurkers.
So far Obama has not proposed free healthcare. He’s proposed $900 billion in new taxes, cuts in Medicare, healthcare rationing, and mandatory health insurance. All of these negatively affect blacks as well as whites. Low income families have had free healthcare since Clinton’s executive order back in the ‘90’s forcing hospitals to provide it.
So far the only folks who have received free student loans are Congressional aids. These are almost all the kids of rich white Dems. Blacks can already go to school for free even if they’re ACT scores are only 60% of what the white kids score.
You’re not entitled to your own facts no matter that you’re a left-wing extremist.
I guess they never thought they would get “used” by their own kind.
Ya think this will smarten them up?
It is hard for one shakedown artist to pay attention to another group of shakedown artists.
Congressional Black Caucus : Hey, why is Obama ignoring us ?
The rest of America: Hey, join the crowd...
Obama is only black when it serves his purposes.
Paging Desiree Rogers, please pick up the WHITE courtesy phone. Sorry, Desiree has left the building.
Hasn't happened yet.
1) He wasn't elected, he defrauded his way into office.
2) He isn't an African-American. If anything, he's Indo-Kenyan.
3) He isn't the President. He just plays one on TV.
well maybe because he’s African and not African-American? duh..
Your a moron!
Unlike Beck, I don’t think O’Bummer is a racist. He’s worse — a smooth, articulate socialist.
I have no idea what you just said, nor what you mean
Glenn Beck said that Obama is a racist against whites. But the president does not seem to be overtly racist, at least no more than the average affirmative action favoring Democrat.
Instead the slick socialist is on the verge of passing a dreadful health car plan that could ruin our economy.
That’s even worse than being a racist.
The CBC. Since racism seems to be a prevalent topic these days. Let’s talk about race and the CBC.
The Schizophrenia when it comes to race in this country is mind boggling.
Because he’s a HALFRICAN.
Maybe it’s because he knows you are robots who will never leave him.
I have lived around black people all my life, and I never understood why that surly stare is some kind of intimidating look. Bruce dern said it best as a racist cop in “The Laughing Policeman”: “You fixin’ to eyeball me to death, boy?”
