Skip to comments.POTUS testy in BET interview
Posted on 09/26/2011 7:34:16 PM PDT by ColdOne
Miller asked Obama to consider the plight of a hypothetical young, African-American in Chicago's South Side: Father gone, mother working 10 hours a day for "peanuts," there are no jobs and, "You won't even say, 'Look, I am going to help you,'" Miller said.
"Emmett, that is not -- first of all, that is not what people are saying," Obama said, bristling. "What people are saying all across the country is we are hurting and we've been hurting for a long time. And the question is how can we make sure the economy is working for every single person."
Obama added, "The other thing I want to make sure you don't just kind of slip in there is this notion that African-American leaders of late have been critical. There have been a handful of African-Americans who have been critical. They were critical when I was running for president. There's always going to be somebody who is critical of the president of the United States."

Even the ass kissers at BET recognize the fact.
Tell him to swipe his EBT. He's unemployable even in the best of times.
If the sycophants at BET are turning on Soetoro, the wheels are definitely coming off the bus.
Can’t deny cold hard economics.
I “BET” that if Herman Cain came to them, they’d be raving over him, because he doesn’t just have hand waving, he actually has a plan that would help that boy and everybody else.
Barry Sorento is not a brother he has not a clue about real Black Americans he is a POSER in CHIEF
And O’bummer’s synthetic angst over it takes the cake... good grief Bummer, you can’t even say that by the grace of God you are who you are?
Barack does not care who he destroys in his quest
to make the economy into his image — a boot on a face forever—
This Marxist pig thug is being called to account by BET.
He still wants to “lay a new foundation” where we spread the wealth
around so everyone can have a chance. Everyone means Solyndra, GE, UAW, Big Democrat Donors, Planned Parenthood, ACORN.
Punk. Loser. Zero.
The following quote proves that he is also an EPIC IDIOT:
“...And the question is how can we make sure the economy is working for every single person.”
A capitalist economy cannot benefit “every single person” because there are millions of inner-city, career-welfare recipients that don’t want to work. (Dey jus’ be wantin’ dat gubmint check each monf.)
No president can help a young minority kid on Chicago’s South Side. The kid’s parents have not helped him become an educated responsible adult. The black community ‘leaders’ have not helped.
Thinking that a president is going to help a young ‘orphan’ is a fantasy - just like the fantasy of a young girl who thinks/wishes a handsome young prince will ride up on horseback and make everything wonderful or the kid who thinks he’s going to be a basketball star.
Most of us outgrow these juvenile fantasies.
And this time state-controlled media won't cover it up.
Barry needs another Vacation
Take from productive people and give to non-productive people?
to help out individuals, not just black individuals, they need better paying jobs... which implies a job in the first place
this also means the dollar they are paid hold their buying power.. so when they earn it, it’s worth something
to increase the average pay... there must be more jobs then workers, or something close. 10-17% unemployment pushes wages down. basic supply and demand
to improve that demand... you must increase the number of jobs, unless we lower the number of people looking for work. to lower the number of people looking for work... deporting the 20-30m illegals would be a start. this also leads to another jobs program... building a wall on the northern and southern borders
to increase the number of jobs... either there needs to be massive innovation, or jobs must move back to the US. to move them back to the US, you must increase tariffs on goods originating in countries whose average salary is under some minimum number (ie: $2k/yr). these countries are only buying our raw resources and are a world source of slave labor. increased tariffs provide American companies the ability to produce the goods within the US at a profit... thereby bringing jobs back
these handful of changes would increase the need for the American worker and improve his lot in life
Without a TelePrompTer?
The man is incredible,
If I may, I would like to add:
Take away the power of, or eliminate, the EPA!!!!!!! Get away from OPEC, open up all drilling and mining, and build refineries!!! That will immediately create LOTS AND LOTS of jobs and deliver to the American people energy we can actually afford.
Control freak. He must define the narrative, intimidate reporters.
Rather than imposing tariffs, I’d rather see us bust the unions. They are kryptonite on manufacturing jobs.
“You won’t even say, ‘Look, I am going to help you,’” Miller said.
Obama already said that before he was elected....and he failed.
