Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus probably would be marching on the White House if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).
"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House," Cleaver told The Miami Herald in comments published Sunday. "There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."
CBC members have expressed concern in recent months as the unemployment rate has continued to rise amongst African-Americans, pushing for Obama to do more to address the needs of vulnerable communities.
"Were supportive of the president, but we getting tired, yall, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said in August. We want to give [Obama] every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We dont know what the strategy is."
Rather than targeting Obamas leadership, many CBC members aimed their fire at the Tea Party movement over the summers congressional recess. Waters said in a public meeting in her district that the Tea Party "can go straight to hell." Another member, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), called the Tea Party the real enemy seeking to hold Congress hostage.

I know what you can do. You can stop screwing companies that could hire all those unemployed people.
But that’s just Raciss!
Translation: “We hate Whitey so much we’d rather sit here and let our people suffer than do anything to help them.”
I wonder what Baraq should add ??
I wonder what would be “enough” ??
Government already provides:
Section 8 housing
99 weeks unemployment
$10 internet and free computers
free cell phones
free school breakfast and lunch
>>probably would be marching on the White House if Obama were not president
Proof that there is very little “American” in “African-American” these days. Very sad. MLK would cry at their racism and afrocentric politics.
If he was a cracka, with the inexperience of barry, he would never have gotten elected.
At least he’s being honest about his racism.
“Cleaver” — Where have I heard that name for a radical black before? Cue the 1960s all over again.
Barry is HALF cracker’..and if you need reminding, Barry’s daddy (married at the time) seduced and knocked up a white woman who loved to sleep around. O Sr. then goes back to kenya, leaving the poor white woman to fend for herself, while going back to his tribe to shag ANOTHER tribeswoman.
the Obamas’ make the Kennedy’s look like the Patridge family..
The answer is obvious! The free cars, gasoline, mortgage payments and Internet are not on your list.
The Cream of the crop...
Come to your home, steal what you have, move into what is left and have you thank them for you to see the light.
That’s hilarious! They’ve got a black guy (sort of) mugging them and their families and they won’t complain because they will be helping the people who are against the mugger.
Just like in their neighborhoods. They won’t turn in the bad guys because they don’t want to help “the man.” They would rather suffer all kinds of crime than to turn against a black man (even an evil SOB) than to help the white man help them.
Ah the bliss of dyslexia.
Read the heading three times as:
“If Obama wasn’t the President HE would be marching on the White House”.
Misery loves company. If we can’t have everything we want, we will wreak the system and make everyone miserable... even if it makes us even more miserable.
I see the same behavior with children and immature adults, all the time.
Gosh these people must be full of self loathing. To submit to the political whims of a chicago thug because of the color of his skin. That’s really pathetic. Do they really think that Moochelle and Obama ever “feel their pain”? Do they have any idea how ridiculous they continue to look to the rest of the world?
