"We're supportive of the president, but we're getting tired. We're getting tired. So, what we want to do is, we want to give the president every opportunity to show -- to show what he can do and what he's prepared to lead on," Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told a Congressional Black Caucus-sponsored gathering yesterday in Detroit.
"Our people are hurting," Waters added.

Black caucus: Tired of making excuses for Obama
During a sometimes-raucous session of what's being called the "For the People" Jobs Initiative tour, a key member of the Congressional Black Caucus told an audience in Detroit Tuesday that the CBC doesn't put pressure on President Obama because he is loved by black voters. But at the same time, Rep. Maxine Waters said, members of the CBC are becoming increasingly tired and frustrated by Obama's performance on the issue of jobs. Even as she expressed support for the president, Waters virtually invited the crowd to "unleash us" to pressure Obama for action.
The problem, Waters said, is that Obama is not paying enough attention to the problems of some black Americans. The unemployment rate for African-Americans nationally is a little over 16 percent, and almost twice that in Detroit. And yet, Waters said, the president is on a jobs-promotion trip through the Midwest that does not include any stops in black communities. "The Congressional Black Caucus loves the president too," Waters said. "We're supportive of the president, but we're getting tired, ya'll. We're getting tired. And so, what we want to do is, we want to give the president every opportunity to show what he can do and what he's prepared to lead on. We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don't know what the strategy is. We don't know why on this trip that he's in the United States now, he's not in any black community. We don't know that."
The master never visits the slave shacks.
Why should he? They’ll vote for him no matter what he does or does not do.
IOW, where’s our share of Whitey’s stuff?
I would savor Obama getting his butt handed to him in a primary. I hope he gets challenged from within. Rick Perry can cream Obama, but Rick Perry can cream Hillary, too.
“We’re supportive of the president, but we’re getting tired. We’re getting tired.”
Poor, poor Maxine.
I’ve a little poem. Just for her:
God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you
“Come to Me”
With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away
and although we love you dearly
we could not make you stay.
A Golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best
"I don't feel no ways tired
I come too far from where I started from
Nobody told me that the road would be easy
I don't believe he brought me this far to leave me."
Obama went to towns...98% white...3-6% unemployment. Basically, not much to rabble rouse about...I'm sure they just wanted him to "go away"...
Did you watch the video? Listen to the reaction of the crowd in the background, as Maxine is speaking. I think after you watch the video, you might change your mind.
Why should Bambi go to any black community? He already has their blind votes.
Sometimes he does, but you know what that's for.
Doesnt live in black neighborhoods, doesnt send his kids to black schools.
He is just like the white liberals, all you fools are good for are your votes.
“Our people are hurting,” Waters added.
Get out of bed and go to work.
Obey the law.
Do the committed MARRIED, monogamous nuclear family boogie.
...and all those ouchies will go away.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told a Congressional Black Caucus-sponsored gathering yesterday in Detroit.
“Our people are hurting,” Waters added.
By “Our people” did she mean the people in her district or the American people - wasn’t she elected to represent all people!
I just love the very people who say we should all be unified, then turning around and balkanizing and dividing and conquering.
Who is Maxine referring to? Blacks? Liberals? Communists? Holder’s people? Sometimes it’s hard to tell.
Exactly! It’s called “A waste of time”
Neither. She means blacks.
Maybe the only Chop Shop he wants to visit is a restaurant...
Given that the whites are now a minority in the USA, when is the racist Congressional Black Caucus going to disband?
Well, Maxine, since the “Black Community” is firmly on the plantation and will vote 90%+ for him no matter what, he has no need to concern himself with you. Now, hush up and eat your peas!
It finally dawns on crazy ol’ Maxine that Obama’s bigger, newer, fancier bus has a lot more room underneath than the old one so he can throw more folks under it. The old bus undercarriage was getting mighty crowded.
Waters knows exactly what is going to happen. She’s part of the plan, and the plan includes race riots. See:
White House Insider: The Obama Plan Part Two
Ulsterman: But he did survive it [Rev.Jeremiah Wright] and rather easily. He gave that speech, and the media praised him for it and the issue was dead.
Insider: EXACTLY. Dont you understand it then? How race that very thing that pulled his ass out of the fire back in 2008 thats the plan for 2012. But even more of it. They got an entire plan to utilize it. Targeting certain states. A media campaign. Use it as a weapon against prospective opponents the Romney people better be ready because hes gonna get his ass kicked with the race issue and he wont even see it coming. They better have their boy prepared for that
Ulsterman: States? Media campaign? For the race issue?
Insider: Yes. Its in place and underway being developed. Further developed. Its gonna gonna tie it in with the unions somehow. I dont know exactly how just thats included in it. It will be an all out campaign on race. The goal is to completely mobilize the Black vote while shaming an even greater number of white voters into not opposing a second Obama term. They are gonna get out the guilt vote, man. The guilt vote!
Ulsterman: Obama Democrats in general, already get the Black vote most of it.
Insider: They want all of it. Every last one. Then bring in the Hispanic vote, tie them up in this race issue as well. Republicans want to toss you out. Obama wants to bring you in. They hate the color of Obamas skin just like they hate the color of yours. Hey White America, you arent part of that group who hates non-whites are you? If not, you better get out and vote for Barack Obama.
Actually, I’m “tired” too of hearing that whitey is to blame.
On the other hand, those idiot white libs and their liberal white guilt got us into this mess in the first place.
The black community’s campaign contributions aren’t going to make up any meaningful part of the 1 billion dollars he needs to get re-elected, that’s why. He’s got to spend every minute of every day for the next year shaking down rich white liberals, or he’s toast.
He doesn’t need to go to the Black communities.
Obama knows that those folks will believe his lies, chose to live as slaves for the democrats and vote the color of his skin.
You know what? I believe that he SHOULD do something for the blacks. He should give a major prime time speech telling how he plans to make reparations a central plank in his re-election campaign. Why, that should make the blacks AND the conservatives happy.
The blacks because they love something for nothing (who doesn’t?) and conservatives because the second that Obama utters the word “reparations” he’s guaranteed a staggering, Mondale-esque beatdown and it won’t matter WHO the G.O.P. nominee is.
That IS the strategy! More people becoming MORE dependent on big government. It's obvious, but aunt Maxine ain't the sharpest pencil in the box.
He’s still half white.
I’m sure he will have a billion dollar budget.
But I’m wondering if it will backfire.
I think a lot of folks are going to get p!ssed constantly hearing the same old Baraqqi BS 24/7 Sept thru Nov.
why on this trip that he’s in the United States now, he’s not in any black community
It’s a new bus and they want to get it back with the wheels still on.
He knows blacks are stupid enough to vote for him regardless of what he does including ignoring them
He’s got a bigger smile while looking at that cows butt, than he did looking at that knuckle dragging Thing he lives with. Well, I don’t blame him.
I wonder if he’s trying to figure out where milk comes from, or if he just wants to be alone with her.
Have you noticed Zero lately. If he weights 140 pounds I’d be surprised. I wonder what the deal is?
Wow, that was a doozy of a speech.
Obama had better watch his back if Waters if after him.
“Our people are hurting.”
A curious choice of wording.
Obama will visit the black communities of Martha’s Vineyard.
At least that photo does not appear to have been manipulated to achieve a certain racial/ethnic balance as most of his photo-ops and outings are.
Singin da blues.
He wanted the face time. Bites for the 6 o’clock news. Crowds that might not be so friendly are not on the schedule.
