Moseley Braun: Clinton 'betrays' blacks, Latinos
Chicago Tribune ^ | January 19, 2011

Posted on 01/19/2011 5:14:05 AM PST by SJackson

Mayoral candidate Carol Moseley Braun this morning sharply attacked former President Bill Clinton's endorsement of Rahm Emanuel, calling it "a betrayal to the people who were most loyal to him."

"President Bill Clinton does not live or vote in Chicago," said a statement issued by her campaign. "He's an outsider parachuting in to support another outsider. For him to come on the day following Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday to insert himself in the middle of a mayoral race, when the majority of the population and mayoral candidates are African American and Latino, is a betrayal of the people who were most loyal to him. It's a mistake."

Translation: All other things considered, we love you, Bill. But if it comes down to a contest between you and, say, Amos or Andy, you’re just another cracker.

Does this mean he doesn’t get to be the ‘first black president’ any more?

Carol, here’s a news alert:
Liberals only want to ensure minorities are dependent on them, to ensure their vote.
The Chicago Machine spent much time and money displacing the Mafia.
Do you really think they’re going to let YOU get in the way?

“Her comments echoed earlier remarks by Rep. Danny Davis, a former mayoral candidate, who had contended Clinton risked jeopardizing his standing with the African-American community by endorsing Emanuel, who at one time was a senior adviser to Clinton.”

Translation:
Bill Clinton should ONLY be endorsing Black candidates if he wants to maintain his standing in the black community.

Mosley is a pure and simple racist.

Emmanuel is a despicable character, but as an executive running such a large city, I’d prefer him to Mosley-Braun. Chicago deserves whatever it gets out of this election, and it aiin’t gonna be good. Unfortunately, I have family there who know what being a minority really is in that town.

Yes, and president Obama does not live, work or vote in Virginia; yet he ‘parachuted in’ to the Commonwealth in the closing days of the campaign in 2010 to ‘insert himself’ in to a the governor’s race and at least one congressional race.

So what?

Translation: Don’t get in the way of equal opportunity looting. Oppressed Black America should not be thwarted in a legitimate attempt at stealing from the public coffers.

She just doesn’t get it....it is OK for blacks to vote for white liberal Democrats and to sleep with Clinton....and for those favors Democrats have provided many subtle types of reparations. In addition there is a rumor going around that the white liberal Democrat methodology for assigning the quota of black officeholders now includes the number of elected Republican black officeholders.
