¡Obamanos! Hispanics, blacks bail on president (Minorities disappointed)
WorldNetDaily ^ | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 03/15/2010 6:45:31 PM PDT by RobinMasters

President Obama is losing his core constituencies as black and Hispanic minorities have begun charging that candidate Obama lied to them with his message of "hope and change," Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.

"Having raised expectations with a charismatic presidential campaign, the Obama White House is now under pressure to deliver results to the blacks and Hispanics who voted for him in record numbers," Corsi wrote.

Members of the Congressional Black Coalition scheduled a meeting with President Obama to demand progress on jobs, especially given that African-American unemployment rates at around 15.6 percent at the end of 2009 were much higher than the 9.3 percent unemployment for whites.

"The 43-member (Black Congressional Caucus) is fighting through one of the most difficult periods in its 39 year history, and some members and aides say they are getting far too little support from the nation's first black president – a man they once believed would be their strongest champion," Politico noted.

Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., said, "There's not enough attention to poor people."

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., warned, "While I respect President Obama, delivering victories for his political future should be the least of our worries on Capitol Hill."

What CAN Obama “give” to minorities? Medicaid? Welfare? Section 8 housing? Advantages in hiring and promotions? Racial preferences in college and jobs? What else is there?

Sheesh, we have a long way to go to make it up to the minorities for all their oppression. Free houses, free cars, free telephone, free internet, more free food, free college, free health care, and free vacations in Hawaii. You are sure a miser when it comes to meeting the basic needs of our poor, Boop!! Open up your wallet. You’ll feel a whole lot better giving ‘til it hurts.

rotflmao. Pigs will coach NFL Football before that happens. Do Joseph Farah and his brilliant eccentric sidekick, Dr.Jerry Corsi, Ph.D. (Harvard, you know) actually believe the Latinos and Blacks will now swing over to the Republican Party ... or even better, stay home on election day?

Hell no. They will vote, or be voted, for the Democrat in every election from now until Domesday, from Public Restroom Inspector to President.

Your remarks are racist.

When I lived in California, I knew many Mexicans who enjoyed exercising their god-given franchise in the voting booth. Hell, some were even US Citizens!

And you tell me! Why shouldn't a dead illegal alien and his extended family vote? They should enjoy the same privileges as the dead African-Americans who vote for the Fords in Tennessee ... it's the American/ACORN way!

Would that also be digging our graves now that doctors will be overloaded and many dropping Medicare that doesn't pay them a fraction of what they need to keep their office doors open?

Colonias FAQs

Snip: A 1993 Texas A&M study discovered that unemployment in five Lower Rio Grande Valley colonias ranged from 20 percent to 60 percent, compared with the overall Texas unemployment rate of 7 percent. In addition, many colonia residents often cannot find year-round work due to the seasonal nature of their primary occupations. Fieldwork represents 29.5 percent of their jobs, construction work, 24.4 percent, and factory work, 14.9 percent.

My city is 58% black- and you would be surprised at how much hoo-rahing, high-fiving, hat-waving, thumbs-up, this gets:

Not all black folks are fools- the Media Hive will never talk to my neighbors, because they won't tell the "narrative" they want to propagate. But they're out there, in the Real America.
