Obama Looks to Rally Blacks in North Carolina
The New York Times ^ | October 9, 2012 | Susan Saulny

RALEIGH, N.C. — Dexter Hady, a black landscaper here, is exactly the kind of Obama supporter who could have slipped through the cracks this year. He recently moved and, not being as excited about the coming election as he was about the 2008 campaign, neglected to update his voter registration.

By chance, a volunteer for the Obama campaign stopped Mr. Hady outside of the Wake County Courthouse here recently and asked him if he was prepared to vote. Mr. Hady said no, and went on to explain: “I can say I was definitely more excited to vote for Obama last time. I guess part of it is that history has already been made.”

For the Obama campaign, it is almost impossible to overstate the importance of winning over people like Mr. Hady again in North Carolina, which has the largest percentage of black voters of any of the swing states — especially after President Obama’s performance in the first debate, which was widely seen as lackluster. In 2008, a strong black turnout that voted almost exclusively for Mr. Obama was credited with helping to win North Carolina for the Democrats for the first time in decades, contributing to his ultimate victory....

Is lackluster a new euphemism for failure? I'm glad to see he's wasting manpower, money and other resources in a state he has no chance of winning this time around.

Yeah ... “community organizing” tactics won’t cut it in a national election ... you’d think he should know that!

The fact that he is still trying to rally his base says a lot

"a state he has no chance of winning this time around"

Exactly. NC is a goner for 0bummer. If he wants to focus on Virginia, he needs to turn out his base of Government Teat-Suckers up North.

I have no idea how many votes he’ll get, but in talking with the Blacks I work with they still plan to vote for him. I asked them why they were going to vote for him will all the problems, lies and him NOT doing what he said he would during his first term. Their answer? “I gots to help a brother doncha know?”

I had to laugh, because WE are the racists for questioning the Oba-Messiah’s performance?

“Obama Looks to Rally Blacks in North Carolina”

Another racist slut at the NYT carrying water for the one.

I’d bet the hypocritical bitch would go ballistic if she saw this headline: Romney Looks to Rally Whites in North Carolina.

It’s time to start playing smash-mouth football with these Nazi racists in the propaganda media.

Blacks may as well vote for the KKK. Unless they have Jay Z and Bouncy money the 1st mixed race president only needs them like Chavez, Castro & Lenin needed useful Idiots. They can die in the streets or get aborted alive and his Kobe Beef will still be served by his worship class.

He did a far better job of rallying Jihadists in the Middle East by constant mention of the ‘Anti-Islam movie’. Fortunately for us, they can only (illegally) donate to his campaign but not vote in our election.

How? Is he going to pull out his fake “urban” cadence and accent again?

Not sure Obama has much enthusiasm behind him this time.
Most people are hurting and tired of hurting.

I live in Guilford County which contains Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem as well as a lot of rural space. Heard the results of a state wide poll today - Romney by 10 and McCrory by 17.

"Obama Looks to Rally Blacks in North Carolina"

Always, Black, Latinos, women, GLBT...NEVER Americans.

The Kenyan must go.

“The fact that he is still trying to rally his base says a lot”

His “base” is still there, and no need to “rally” it.

Just saw a poll a couple of days ago — Obama is still garnering 95% of their votes (at least in the polling group that was surveyed).

What it says -more- is that perhaps both Obama and his handlers see that there isn’t much point in trying to persuade whites to vote for him anymore, and is turning back to his black base for what accolades he can get.

Hopefully, they will become his last hurrah.
