Maxine Waters: Why isn't Obama in black communities?
By Brian Montopoli
Democrats Rep. Maxine Waters of California, a central member of the Congressional Black Caucus, said Tuesday that "we don't know why" President Obama is not visiting black communities on his Midwestern bus tour, adding, "We're supportive of the president, but we're getting tired."
Waters, speaking at a freewheeling forum at Detroit's Wayne County Community College, suggested members of the CBC don't pressure Mr. Obama because their constituents are proud to have an African-American president, adding that "if we go after the president too hard, you're going after us."
"The Congressional Black Caucus loves the president, too," she went on to say. "We're supportive of the president, but we're getting tired. 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 unemployment rate for African-Americans as of July was 15.9 percent, and it's significantly higher in Detroit. Waters told her audience Tuesday that when you "unleash us and you tell us you're ready to have this conversation, we're ready to have the conversation."

he already has the black vote committed. He needs cash.
Maxine, Maxine... O, ye of little faith. Know ye not that God is everywhere? Why, then, should Obama do less? The bird has her nest. The cow has its cud. The junkie has his line. And the faithful people have their lame beyond words dependence on taxpayers. The world is in order.
He has those communities’ votes locked up, and he doesn’t know where they are, anyway....
Typical Obama. Suck up to your enemies, kick your friends in the butt. Other groups due to be thrown under the bus:
Must be something psychological, in addition to calculations they have no place else to go.
Say there Maxine-—aren’t you being delayed for your ‘hot waters’ Congressional ethics hearing? Brotha Bam can speed up the process if you don’t stay bamboozled on the Chosen Zero’s plantation. He’s half white dontchyaknow..../sc
Because he already has your vote?
cuz he’s scared sh@tless?
He just got new spinners on the bus and wants to keep them - Al Sharpton
My vote for post of the day !!!
The media is afraid to go there.
I agree with Kerosene Maxine for once. Obama needs to take those buses through black neighborhoods. The whole excuse for charging these buses to the taxpayer was that they were more secure than a typical rented bus including, I presume, bulletproofing. So, how are you going to test the bulletproofing if you don’t take it through some black neighborhoods where they have drive-bys?
Of course, the buses will have a few layers of graffiti if he makes any stops and a few of the tires could get lifted...
BWA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAAA
BWA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAAA
“Damnit, Joe, 1.1 million dollars for a bus and there’s no toilet paper in the bathroom! Give me your shirt. You always said you’d give me the shirt off your back. Now’s the time to pony up. I’ll give it back to you when I’m done.”
Congressional Black Caucus= Congressional Flash Mob. Stock in trade is shoplifting through legislation
Same reason you aren’t in prison, Miss Loud Mouth Soup Waters.
This black nitwit is pissed because her King hasn’t handed millions from his stash to her beloved people.
