Obama campaign strives to revive black voter enthusiasm of 2008
Los Angeles Times ^ | October 26, 2012 | By Kathleen Hennessey

RICHMOND, Va. — Four years ago, there were doubts, then hope, then worry, work and elation. Today, as African American voters look at electing the first black president to a second term, there is support tinged with disappointment and defensiveness.

There are worries about President Obama's support for gay marriage, worries about the economy and worries about life under a Mitt Romney administration. There are fewer thoughts about making historic strides and quieter worries about history slipping away.

He didn’t give them enough free hand outs from the Obama stash. Oh well.

Why? They'll vote for him 90-1.

It won't matter if they all turn out.

What's not politically correct to point out is that Obama is getting only 40% of the white vote.

Every black person in this country could vote for O and he would still lose.

Such are the straws the Los Angeles Times out of sheer desperation, clutches at this year. The Race Card TM has worn out its usefulness.

What is it called when a candidate focuses on getting votes based on skin color?

That depends on the skin color.

Any Black American that votes for Barack Hussein “Muslim Brotherhood Adoree” Obama” Is either insane, on drugs, smokin’ pot, drinkin’ too much Kool-Aid...or, is just plain, not the sharpest knife in the drawer!!! And.....my Black friends, if you should need reasons for not supporting “Traitor” Obama, you really have problems!!! You’ll be adrift at sea for the next hundred years!!! Obama has thrown you guys under the bus!!! Sad!!!

I want to live in an America that truly does judge on the basis of character, not skin color, or gender, or political affiliation. Unfortunately, the survival of the democrats totally depends on perpetuating divisions based on all of those. It is way past time for more black Americans to climb the socioeconomic ladder and partake of all the good that self determinism in America can engender. Getting away from the race mongering dependence encouraging democrats and liberals will be the best thing that happens to black America.

Probably nothing will matter in california, but turnout will be critical in states which are contested. Black turnout (and vote percentage btw) were at historic highs in 2008. Nothing like that happening this year. States like Ohio may swing on the black turnout.

That’s a very offensive post. It’s exactly the kind of thing our enemies love to find on Free Republic. Ask the mods to take it down.

I disagree with some of the remarks here. I think a very large number of Jews and blacks have wised up regarding Obama’s incompetence and destruction and will not be voting for Obummer again. They may not vote for Romney, but they won’t be voting for zero again. I think Obama will lose at least 20% of the black votes he got in 2008 and lose an even greater percentage of Jewish votes.

My, aren't we the defensive one? You obviously realize that your post was truly offensive. Man up and tell the mods to take it down.

My philosophy is -— If you cannot vote for Romney then just sit at home, watch TV, eat some Swanson turkey pies washed down with grape drank. America will appreciate that. Jews like to get in their two cents worth so fewer will sit it out. But I hope a lot do. My prediction is Obama won’t get more than 65% of the Jewish vote. Obama won 78 percent of the Jewish vote in 2008
