If Obama turns his ‘laser-like’ focus to the black community the way he’s done jobs and unemployment, the black community is screwed. Isn’t it funny that Obama hasn’t paid any attention to the extremely high black unemployment rate but now wants to pander to the black community to shore up their vote.
Obama and his team are going to pull the race card at all costs. He’s already pandering to the Hispanic community by stopping the deportation of 300,000 criminals who broke our immigration laws. Now when faced with criticism from corrupt Congressional Black Caucus members (see Maxine Waters), Obama does an about face and panders to the black community.
I hope these groups wake up and realize this is how the Democrats work. It’s raced based politics that is used to divide and conquer. Maybe these groups will do some research about the party they support so highly.
From the start of his history-making tenure, the nation’s first black president took care never to be seen making policy or political decisions aimed solely or directly at black America. His position: He is the president of the whole country, focused on broad-based fixes to “lift all boats.”
The liberal media is the biggest peddler of racial politics. As we all know, those on the left are obsessed by race. It’s in their history.
The race-avoidance strategy served President Obama well, helping him attract support from many whites while also mobilizing African Americans energized by the powerful symbol of a black commander in chief.
The media can spin this image all they want. Americans know Obama is an ineffectual leader whose only concern has been his job, not theirs.
But a soaring jobless rate among African Americans and a newfound comfort by black lawmakers to criticize Obama’s economic policies are prompting the White House to recalibrate — and to focus more directly on the struggles of black America.
See, the liberal media continues to hide the truth. Black unemployment is at Depression-era levels and this is happening under the ‘leadership’ of Barry Obama. The media continues to cover Obama’s ass.
The shift comes amid a growing concern among some Democrats that the stubborn economic conditions in minority communities might hamper efforts by Obama’s reelection campaign to generate the large black voter turnout it needs in key cities to make up for his declining support among white independents.
There’s the truth folks. Liberals, and the media, love to pit one against the other. Obama is kissing up to the black community because he is losing support from all groups due to his failed policies. He has been more concerned with campaigning and raising cash for his reelection than the unemployment rates that affect all communities of all colors.
This week, the White House dispatched a top official to participate in a Congressional Black Caucus jobs forum in Miami that had been scheduled in part to pressure the White House.
The official, Don Graves, the executive director of the president’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, told black lawmakers that the president would consider taking executive action to enact at least parts of jobs-related measures they have introduced to no avail in the Republican-led House.
How has this Obama council fared so far? Nine percent (9%) plus unemployment for 28 of the 31 months Obama has been president.
“You may not feel like the president is listening to you, but he hears you loud and clear,” Graves told the lawmakers before an audience of hundreds crammed into the pews of the Mount Hermon African Methodist Episcopal Church.
Yes, Obama has heard them and it’s conveniently close to election time. Hopefully those who voted for Obama due to his skin color will vote him out based on his policies that have damaged all communities, not just the black community.
