Pointing to double-digit unemployment rates among African Americans and Hispanics, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R.-Minn.) said on Friday that President Barack Obama has failed both these communities.
This president has failed the Hispanic community. He has failed the African-American community, said Bachmann. He has failed us all when it comes to jobs.
Bachmann, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination for 2012, made the remarks at the Republican Leadership Conference held in New Orleans over the weekend. Other Republican presidential contendersincluding Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul and Herman Cainalso spoke at the event, as did Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who is reportedly considering a run for president.
Bachmanns speech focused in part on what she described as Obamas failure to promote economic growth and job creationresulting in an overall national unemployment rate of 9.1 percent in May, a full 28 months into Obamas term.
Mr. President, the status quo is not working for Americans, said Bachmann. The status quo certainly isn't working for the African-American community, with 16 percent unemployment, or the Hispanic community, with nearly 12 percent unemployment. It's even worse for the youth: For Hispanic youth right now, 26 percent unemployment; for African-American youth, 40 percent unemployment.

‘Twould indeed be shorter and more efficient to list the things in which the Obamaloon was not a failure.
That list can be summarized by two words: Null Set.
Sounds suspiciously like a post from an operative of a competing candidate’s campaign.
Go MB GO!!!!
Bachmann is leading the way. So far she has my vote.

Michele, please say it again in Spanish so I can literally watch Ed Schultz’ head explode
Sometimes her wording feels a little clunky to me but she says a lot of things that need to be said and that no one else will say.
President Trainwreck has also failed the Asian and Caucasian American communities. He has failed the millions of "Millionaires and Billionaires". He is an equal opportunity failure.
He has, to his credit, been a good golfer and knows the game of basketball inside out.
"Shallow pandering to hyphenated America" for $200, Alex.
Thank you MB for “speaking truth to power.” Credit where due and you deserve it for putting this out there.
Now about the RINO attack dog. Can we please get a word from you on that? Appreciate the above, but this cloud will hang over your head until you give the base some answers. Ignoring the Ed-RINO in the room will NOT it, or us, go away.
“Somebody needed to say it.”
I wish our side wouldn’t stoop to pandering to all the ethnic and interest groups that is balkanizing our country.
When we do so we just trap ourselves in the left’s narrative. It opens ourselves up to the obvious comeback question: “What are you going to do for the blacks?” Or the hispanics? Or the gays?
He has failed all the citizens of this country, he has failed the country and its values! We need to market our world view and not adopt theirs, or we’ll never win.
