Top Black Dem On Obama Bus Tour: "He's Not In Any Black Community"
Real Clear Politics ^ | August 17, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 08/17/2011 1:24:12 PM PDT by library user

"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.

**snip**

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."

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
and whispered,
“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

We're supportive of the president, but we're getting tired. We're getting tired.

"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."

Moochelle ALWAYS does the black gigs.

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"...

Why should he? They’ll vote for him no matter what he does or does not do.

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.

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.

“Our people.”

Who is Maxine referring to? Blacks? Liberals? Communists? Holder’s people? Sometimes it’s hard to tell.

Given that the whites are now a minority in the USA, when is the racist Congressional Black Caucus going to disband?

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

http://newsflavor.com/politics/us-politics/white-house-insider-the-obama-plan-part-two/#ixzz1VJvCtJ2D

[snip]

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. Don’t you understand it then? How race – that very thing that pulled his ass out of the fire back in 2008 – that’s 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 he’s gonna get his ass kicked with the race issue and he won’t even see it coming. They better have their boy prepared for that…

Ulsterman: States? Media campaign? For the race issue?

Insider: Yes. It’s in place and underway – being developed. Further developed. It’s gonna – gonna tie it in with the unions somehow. I don’t know exactly how – just that’s 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 Obama’s skin just like they hate the color of yours. Hey White America, you aren’t part of that group who hates non-whites are you? If not, you better get out and vote for Barack Obama.

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.

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.

The unemployment is unconscionable. We don't know what the strategy 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 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.
