Leader of Black Socialist Caucus Says Debt Deal Is a “A Sugar-Coated Satan Sandwich”
GatewayPundit.com ^ | July 31, 2011 | Jim Hoft

This sounds like good news...The leader of the Black Socialist Caucus says the debt deal is a “sugar-coated Satan sandwich.” That must mean it is a much better deal than we had hoped for.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver is the current leader of the Black Caucus (without black Republican members)

Roll Call reported:

President Barack Obama’s rightward lurch to reach a $3 trillion deficit reduction deal with no guarantee of additional revenues had liberals fuming and Republicans all but declaring victory Sunday afternoon.

With time running out to reach an agreement to raise the debt ceiling before Tuesday’s default deadline, Obama moved dramatically in the direction of the GOP, according to Senators and aides in both parties...

...Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said early reports of the new deal appeared to be “a sugar-coated Satan sandwich.” The Missouri Democrat said the CBC hadn’t yet made a formal declaration that the group would oppose it, “but this is a shady bill.”

“This deal trades people’s livelihoods for the votes of a few unappeasable right-wing radicals, and I will not support it,” ripped Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, before House Democrats had even been briefed. “The lesson today is that Republicans can hold their breath long enough to get what they want.”

I thought Rep. Allen West was going to join the Black Caucus and teach them a thing or two.

At least we can’t accuse polticians of fooling the people with their skillful oratory these days. Satan Sandwich? Sounds like a variation on the Dirty Sanchez. (NB: Do not google Dirty Sanchez.)

I agree. I must say, though, that “sugar-coated Satan sandwich” is one of the best zings I’ve heard in a long time.

Its too bad our side suffered from lack of sack. We had the ultimate bargaining chip. If nothing was passed the budget got balanced RIGHT NOW, not ten years from now. They could have sent over CCB and then taken a vacation.

IMHO, the Black Caucus, as with the NAACP, has long become an irrelevant joke. Radical extensions of a flawed social juctise agenda. =.=

Of course. The Bush tax cuts will expire at the end of 2012.Everyone is aware of this.Also the AMT will not be patched in 2012 making many middle class taxpayers’ taxes skyrocket.Everyone knew that too. Now if Boehner and the GOP want to make these into important issues the next year and a half they can.The Obama would have to run defending a general tax increase.

Don’t be fooled by a socialist.

They always bitch like it’s the end of the effing world whenever the slightest thing doesn’t go in their favor.

It’s out of the Marx/Lenin handbook. It is just an attempt to get the other side off guard by saying they got skunked.

Someone must have forgotten to tell Emanuel Cleaver the Section 8 housing vouchers, cab fares, untraceable cell phones, Hi-def TV’s, WIC cards and welfare checks will be sent to his constituents as usual.

Oh this is great. Emanuel is head of the Black Socialist Caucus, but Raul here is the poster boy for the Communist Party!

I'd say we won!

Don’t worry Black Socialist, Obama got his 2.+ debt ceiling raise. He’ll have plenty more “stash” to hand out to Holder’s folk. Obama is not worried about revenues because he has no intention of paying it back anyway. He got what he wanted, more money to hand out to loyal voters and to recruit more new voters.

Do socialists even believe in Satan at all? Maybe Black socialists (like Irish socialists a century and more ago) have special permission to retain their religious beliefs?

Bingo. Trot out the raving nutters to puff and bluster, and people like the author of this piece will be fooled into thinking the good guys won something.

Bah. There are no deals with Democrats. They break every agreement, every time, all the time. Whatever it’s claimed was agreed, they might as well have said they were all going to ride a rocket to Mars and start building their beach houses. It’s all lies, always lies.

Gee, the leader of the Black Socialist caucus is upset. Well, I’m upset there’s even such a thing as a Black Socialist caucus in a country that was built by free enterprise and capitalism. And if Emanuel Cleaver doesn’t like it, he should try Cuba.

Cleaver is a United Methodist pastor for what that’s worth. And, oddly enough, was a big Hillary supporter which got him an Uncle Tom label.

5000 Years Ago, Moses Said To Israel, "Pick Up Your Shovels,Mount Your Asses And Camels, And I Will Lead You To The Promised Land."
When Welfare Was Introduced, Roosevelt Said, "Lay Down Your Shovels, Sit On Your Asses, And Light Up A Camel, This Is The Promised Land."
Today The Government Has Stolen Your Shovel, Taxed Your Asses, Raised The Price Of Camels And Mortgaged The Promised Land To China.

Yup, and obummercare is still alive. That is the largest tax increase ever, and will redistribute more wealth than ever.

According to Chris Plante (radio talk-show host in Wash, DC) Cleaver is also the congressman that accused a Tea Party supporter of spitting on him at a rally.

Remember that incident?
