(Gotta get this done. Pats are on tonight)
Representative Maxine Waters, who proudly serves the 35th district of California is in a bit of a quandary. She’s quite angry with her President but isn’t sure she can really show it. She told a Detroit crowd this week that members of her Congressional Black Caucus are hesitant to criticize President Barack Obama because they feel they may lose support from the black community. Ms. Waters said, “We do not put pressure on the president because y’all love the president”. That’s rather spineless, if you ask me. She goes on to say, “You are very proud to have a black man as president for the very first time in the history of the United States of America. If we go after the president too hard, you are going after us.” Waters then adds, “The Congressional Black Caucus loves the president, too. We’re supportive of the president, but we’re getting tired. We’re getting tired. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don’t know what the strategy is. We don’t know why on this trip that he’s in the United States now, he’s not in any black community.” The U-3 unemployment rate in July was 9.1%, with about 14 million Americans out of work. But the unemployment rate for blacks is 15.9%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The real number, the U-6, is at least double. Now that’s a scary number. I actually agree with Ms. Waters on 2 points. The unemployment rate is unconscionable & we don’t know what his strategy is either. Actually, I know what his strategy is. Cloward & Piven. Also, he doesn’t feel the need to visit any “black community”. He knows they’re not going anywhere. They’re locked up.
I guess I was under the misimpression that Congress is suppose to work for the people in their districts & not worry about our black President.
Obama did respond saying, ” I cannot pass laws that say I’m just helping black folks”. True, but how about an executive order? He likes those.
As much as I hate the situation our country is in, it is kinda fun watching these disheartened hacks squirm.
