Rep. Waters 'suprised' Obama told the African-American community not to complain
The Hill ^ | September 26, 2011 | Alicia M. Cohn

Posted on 09/26/2011 7:37:40 AM PDT by maggief

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Monday complained that President Obama had unfairly singled out the African-American community and characterized them as complainers over the weekend.

"Despite the fact that he's appointed [Sonia] Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, he has an office for excellence in Hispanic education right in the White House, [the Hispanic caucus is] still pushing him," she said. "He certainly didn't tell them to stop complaining, and he would never say that to the gay and lesbian community, who really pushed him on Don't Ask Don't Tell. Even in a speech to AIPAC [the American Israel Public Affairs Committee], he would never say to the Jewish community to stop complaining about Israel."

Obama, speaking at a Congressional Black Caucus dinner Saturday, called on his African-American supporters to "stop complaining" and begin fighting.

"Shake it off. Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying," he said, asking the crowd to "march with me and press on."

It’s not nice to mess with Mother Maxine. Does Great Leader know who she is? I wonder what Je$$e and $harpton have to say?

Maxine was obviously upset that Obama’s racist half-white side was doing the talking.

Has anyone ever heard a President yell and scream into a mike the way this guy does? Even in front of Congress. He sounds like he’s trying to inspire a high school football team.

Trouble on the Plantation Maxine? A liberal slave uprising is always interesting to watch, but soooo boring. I’m sure it won’t be long before you are once again praising Massa Obama and his marxist overseers.

That speech, in content and tone, was one of desperation and anger.

He had a choice to apologize to them, sell his policies, and beg for more time, and he chose to berate them, belittle them, and worse, ASSUME their feilty. Blacks, above all, do not like being taken for granted.

The story of the 2012 election will be how even the black vote left his side. Sure, upwards of 90% of blacks who go to the polls will vote for Obama, but his problem will be turnout.

He’s embarrassing them, and they will want him off the stage in 2012, IMHO.

Lol! Did not think about this, but Waters has it right. Blacks are portrayed as complainers, by the chief complainer himself—obamma. What an obamma putdown of Waters and her (Holder) kind. Heh heh heh heh!

So is Mad Maxine now the “go to” person for news about angry blacks in America?

Waters on Obama’s call to “Stop crying”

September 26, 2011 6:19 AM

Erica Hill talks to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) about Pres. Obama’s speech to the Congressional Black Caucus, in which he told the crowd to “stop complaining” and “put your marching shoes on.”

Communist, Mother Maxine Waters can clearly read the handwriting on the wall. Obama is toast, even in the Black American Community. Oh, yes, about 75% will vote for the empty suit, buffoon, Obama, but....at that rate, Obama will lose in a massive landslide and take most of the Democrat Party with him. Look, Obama is not all there, the Jews know it, the Blacks know it and the Hispanics know it. Obama is now reduced to ranting and hating, just like Hitler did before he ended it all as a raving maniac in his Berlin bunker, in April, 1945. The comparison is amazing!!!! Mother Maxine is only doing what any smart CBC member should do, distance themselves as far as they can away from Obama!!! And......of course “The Jew” comment by Obama did not help!!! The real Obama surfaced amongst the great Jew haters in America, the CBC!!!

I really wonder if there is a tipping point with this rhetoric when the black community decides Barry really isn’t “black” and he starts losing them. hmmmm

As I said on another thread, he's acting this way because he can't win on substance. He has nothing to offer blacks, or any other race, for that matter. He's using rhetoric like this because the ONLY way he can win back the White House in 2012 is to incite fear, and intimidate his political opponents. He doesn't want to win the debate; he wants "his people" to march over, get in the faces of people, and drown out any argument against him.

The bigger goal is to “agitate to the point of conflict” and advance the dialectic another notch as a result.

At first he showed two public personalities, one a measured pompous ass that he spoke using his ‘white’ voice. The other was the jive-turkey that we now see full time. I guess he prefers the pimp motif ;-)

the way he was ranting and raving looked like he’s hooked on drugs again or he’s just totally lost it.

The man has the pro homosexual, pro cross dressing biased corrupt media in his corner, most of wall street, most of Hollywood, groups based on color, based on their sexual getting off and many many corporations and yet the man still is losing it because the masses of the general public are looking and not seeing what’s saying.

For instance we’re always told his wife is stylish, good looking, has a great body etc and then we see her and think “HUH she’s got an overweight arse, clothes which do not fit, sits there with legs open and always looks angry.

You just can’t fool all the people all the time , not even King zero and his freeloading family

Dems get 95% of the black vote every election without fail, and she wonders why they would be taken for granted. It’s like a plantation owner saying, “Quit complaining and get back to picking cotton.”

Notice how his Jew comment has not been mentioned by any so called media outlets?

Hell it was on the sidebar yesterday on here but now gone unlike other headlines which are older.

This man has been getting a pass since he ran for state senator, actually he’s been getting a pass since affirmative action got him into a college of which we have no idea what his grades are still.

Maxine needs to figure out just one thing. If he spoke to the Jews, Hispanics or Unions that way they would bolt the party. He will get 98% of the black vote no matter what he says. In politics coordinated disloyalty gets results. Why does the TEA party have power in the GOP? Because they proved they would primary their own party's candidates. Do as we want or else earns rewards. But the CBC's blind loyalty has removed the or else from that statement. So they are demoted from a group making demands to just complainers.

Fox News Channel made comment, but.....nothing earth shattering. However, it is plastered all over the internet, along with The CBC’s communist Maxine Waters jumping on Obama for singling out Blacks to quit slacking and get into the fray!!! She said, Obama would never utter words to Hispanics or Jews as he has to Blacks. Also watched a pre CBC speech interview with Idiot, Sheila Jackson Lee as she was fawning all over Obama. Watched the same gent (CNN) interview her after the Obama speech and she did sound or look like a happy camper after Obama’s insane remarks. Fact is: Obama’s is slipping into insanity or drugs with each passing day, IMHO!!! Keep a close eye on him. He is not all there by any means!!! This “Jew” remark is devastating. Give it a few days!!!

When your politics is defined by dividing limited power and money among different racial groups to buy support, demand is unlimited. There will never be enough to satisfy everyone.

That's how he treats everyone, especially the American people.

When I finally heard him this year, I picked up on it right away. It's unbecoming of the office.

Maxine, Obama takes your vote for granted. And with good reason. Just ask Jim Clyburn if he voted for “the black guy” in the SC Dem primary for US Senate.
