Obama Addresses Single Moms at Minn. Job Training Center (Afro Reports)
The Afro ^ | 6/28/14 | Afro Staff

Posted on 07/02/2014 7:22:09 AM PDT by YourAdHere

A day before delivering a speech railing against Congressional Republicans’ opposition to his economic agenda, President Obama made an unexpected visit to a HIRED job training center in a predominantly Black neighborhood of north Minneapolis on June 26.

While at the training center, Obama spoke to a classroom of members participating in Project CARE, which trains young mothers in sales and customer service jobs before placing them in internships.

“All of us start in different places,” Obama told the nine women present at the meeting, according to a White House media pool report. “I was basically raised by a single mom… My mom was in a similar place as a lot of you guys”.

Obama said his mom benefited from programs such as those at HIRED, and told the women he wants to ensure “all of you have opportunities and a chance to thrive.” Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Labor Secretary Tom Perez joined Obama for the visit.

During a trip to Minneapolis, Minnesota, President Obama stops by a Project CARE class.

The visit was part of a two-day series of events leading up to a speech in Minneapolis, during which the president lambasted Congressional Republicans for derailing his efforts to increase the minimum wage, provide equal pay for all workers, and extend unemployment benefits.

“Republicans in Congress this year have voted down every single serious idea to strengthen the middle class,” he said, according to MinnPost.com. “Over and over again they’ve shown that they’ll do anything to keep in place systems that really help folks at the top but don’t help you. They don’t seem to mind.”

Addressing single moms, Obama began, “Henceforth, your children will address your welfare check as “Daddy”.

His audience is becoming narrower and narrower. Pretty soon he’ll have a lock on the handicapped female gay transgender biracial retarded midget lobby.

BS....Your mom was messing with a muzzie and got caught. She dumped you at your wealthy grandmother’s joint...then took you to Kenya where she managed to find a very rich muzzie who made his money in oil. You lived on a large estate with servants.

He was mostly raised by his wealthy grandparents. His grandmother was a vice president of a bank. He went to an elite prep school in Hawaii. He was NOT raised by a struggling single mother. Why does the media never call him out on his bogus life story? He was raised in affluent circumstances.

When he tells this story, he doesn’t mention that his mother was married to Sotero, and doesn’t mention that he was part of a blended family with that stepfather.

Or, we could say that Obama lies about his own background when he tells these stories.

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) . . . joined Obama for the visit.

How did that happen? The last couple articles I read said that Obama was so toxic at this point that even a Lib zealot like Franken doesn't want to be seen with him.

yes he should have shared the picture of his momma posed in the buff for Frank Marshall Davis

and advised all those women to do what his momma did

enroll in a useless artsy PhD program at a big university and screw exotic nonAmerican students until they snagged one willing to marry them

then maybe they could end up in a foreign country with houseservants and nannies

Maybe even a trannie nanny

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

Mom was married. He was adopted by Lolo. Then he was shipped to Hawaii to be raised by his grandmother. hmmm...maybe there is a similarity, LOL

When I see a posting such as this posted by “AFRO”, I LMAO!!! African-Americans, both men and women have been royally screwed by Obama for the last six years. American Blacks are adrift-at-sea, going nowhere, and will remain there for a long time period to come!!!

I guess...they are overjoyed at being kept in economic slavery by their own, Obama (Muslim), the CBC & the NAACP, thugs, grifter and shysters...always ripping off and scamming Black folks!!! Ya think...maybe....they are not-too-bright!!! Must be!!!

I love how the Afro assumes that all of its readers just know what the acronym HIRED stands for. I ain’t got a clue.
