POTUS testy in BET interview
Politico44 ^ | 09/26/11 | JULIE MASON

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."

HUSSEIN IS AN EPIC FAILURE!

Even the ass kissers at BET recognize the fact.

Tell him to swipe his EBT. He's unemployable even in the best of times.

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.

Herman Cain actually comes from hard work & struggle. His father was a driver and his mother was a maid.

When Obama ever have to struggle for anything in his damn life? He went to the best private school in Hawaii... the best private universities.

Obama has zero connection the black community except that racist church.

Barack does not care who he destroys in his quest
to make the economy into his image — a boot on a face forever—
Orwell’s 1984.

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 the question is how can we make sure the economy is working for every single person.

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

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.

Rather than imposing tariffs, I’d rather see us bust the unions. They are kryptonite on manufacturing jobs.

Obama already said that before he was elected....and he failed.

Is use of the word “boy” intended to be a racist disparaging remark? I’m hoping not.

I think you misunderstand him when he says “...And the question is how can we make sure the economy is working for every single person.”

Hussein thinks the economy is “working” just fine when 75% are receiving government assistance and paying no taxes while only a few of us slave away for their benefit. Right now he is unhappy that we only have 50% freeloading parasites in the country. We can do MUCH better than that.

The last time I remember a President visibly losing his base like this was the Southern Democrats turning on Jimmy Carter.
