Posted on 09/03/2012 2:43:12 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
When we assess the President's post-election performance and the effects of his redistributive and regulatory policies, we find that, like a falling tide, he is sinking everyone. We also find that although Barack Obama has hurt all American families, he has hurt black families most of all.......
The man is ill-suited for the job. He scores last...in unemployment, weeks unemployed, food stamps, and black illegitimate births, and near the bottom or tied for last in black unemployment, months of 12%-plus black unemployment, and children below the poverty line.
Barack Obama has crushed the business and hiring climate. What's left are his race-based initiatives.....
These impotent, Obama-centric promotions highlight the small-mindedness and exhaustion of his presidency......The damage will continue if he is re-elected, and rational self interest dictates that all voters, but particularly black voters, choose anyone but Barack Obama.
.....Black Americans should not succumb to the temptations of despair or denial by joining themselves to the disappointing Obama presidency. Our weak economy, black joblessness, and the travails of our families are not their failures; they are Barack Obama's. This should come as a relief -- a yoke lifted -- because family plights can improve once Barack Obama is voted out of office, all the while leaving intact the historical achievement of having elected a black president.
As well, let's not conflate the man Obama with the historical achievement. Black Americans may not be robbed of the fact that we have elected a black president and at some point will do so again. Our achievement is irreversible, whether Barack Obama leaves the White House after one term or after two. It's just that all of us, and black Americans in particular, will be better off if he leaves after one.

They have been “had” even more so than we. Consumed the the color of his skin rather than the content of character.
Have you seen Clinton’s ad running for obama? He sounds like someone is holding a gun to his back forcing him to read the script.
Unfortunately, to those who worship him everything obama has done that does not turn out as planned was hurt by the republicans stalling him for so long. Or by the compromises the republicans forced him to make. Or by the republicans having blocked what he really wanted to do.
Would majority of Blacks accept the fact? My guess they simply argue that that’s because the Whites don’t want to see a Black president successful that they sabotage him and scheme the economy to prevent him from being reelected.
They’ll still vote for him in the same numbers they did in 08 because we now have reverse racism in this country.
White devil here doing my best to keep the black man down.
Just ask obammy.
Unfortunately, 95% of Americans, who happen to be black, will vote for him again. Otherwise good, moral, church-going, and intelligent people in my office will make every excuse in the world for this man. There is no other ethnic group that exhibits this sort of drone-like behavior when it comes to politics. Sad, really.
I saw the same dynamic at work when Mayor Dinkins in New York ran against Juliani. Same lemming-like behavior.
The case is emblematic of the subprime mortgage crisis, caused in large part by lenders extending credit to borrowers who, like many of the Buycks plaintiffs, were not creditworthy. As a result, countless homes were foreclosed and property values have plummeted in many metropolitan areas of the United States.
At least 46 of Obamas 186 clients have declared bankruptcy since 1996, often multiple times."
A black kid born today to a loving family is a rare and lucky item indeed.
70% are born out of wedlock and we don’t even mention how many are killed in the womb and yet they cannot see who are the racists who are committing genocide against their race.
They think Democrats who aprove of abortions and promiscuity are on their side.Well guess what black folks, you wont find any blacks living next door to Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein or any of the other great defenders of your race.
They talk the talk, but they don’t want you in their neighborhood.
Barack Obama has crushed the business and hiring climate. What’s left are his race-based initiatives.....
Not until they change their anti-social ways and conform to our society will things get better for them.
So far, I’ve not seen any attempt to do so.
No one, however, slept through the history lesson Tuesday night at the monthly meeting of the Hillsborough County (Tampa) Republican Executive Committee. But then Frantz Kebreau is not your ordinary professor. If fact, he's not a professor at all but an airline pilot and former Navy pilot with more than 300 carrier landings, taking some time away from the clouds to promote a more earthly understanding of the blessings of American freedom that people of all races can enjoy (at least and until politicians zero those freedoms out).
One of the favorite indoor sports of liberals is to call conservatives, particularly those with the temerity to embrace the tea-party, racist. To hear media-appointed black "leaders" like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpie, not to mention some of the more demagogic members of the Congressional Black Caucus, you'd think all white American conservatives, regardless of protestations to the contrary and spotless lives, are closet Ku-Kluxers who can barely contain their inner Bull Connor. These bigots we're told, given half a chance, would have our black brothers and sisters on the back of the bus again in a heartbeat.......[snip]
Kebreau, whose parents immigrated to America from Haiti, is having none of this. Since 2009 he's been on the news, talk shows, and speaking circuit making the point that, though few Americans know it, the record of the Republican Party for a century and a half has not only been more supportive of Black Americans than that of the Democratic Party has, but much more so.
In his Tuesday lecture before a couple hundred GOP activists in Tampa, Kebreau pointed out that the more than a dozen civil rights acts introduced into Congress over the past century and a half were all introduced by Republicans and opposed by Democrats, often vociferously. In each case a higher percentage of Republicans supported real civil rights than Democrats, including the all-important Civil Right Act of 1964. A full 80 percent of Republicans voted in Congress for this game-changing legislation that was the beginning of the end for Jim Crow. Only 63 percent of Democrats supported it, not including Democratic icon and former Ku Klux Klan member Robert C. Byrd, who filibustered it."..... [snip]..
Of course, there are different kinds of progress. There is the inconvenient fact that Obama has governed while black unemployment and the level of child hunger in the black community have risen to the highest rates in the modern era, and while educational achievement among African Americans continues to bottom out at appalling levels. This record is one that the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus said last summer would lead blacks to march outside the White House if it had a different occupant.".....
I’ve always thought that if Obama did one thing, and one thing only, he could positive change America and go down in history as a good president. And regretfully, he didn’t attempt it.
What is this one thing? Address the crippling, spiraling, out of control dysfunction in the African-American culture. Instead of saying, you’re owed, he should tell them that they could do better. Tell them to clean up their streets, stay in school, study and do well,, that sex is for committed relationships, that drugs destroy lives. They revere him, listen to him, and he actually could have made a difference.
I’ve worked in this community, and as a white upper class woman, I have no street creds. Someone like me is not listened to. Barack and Michelle could have made this their mission and inspired a new generation.
