I would like to write that this is not really accurate, but . . . it is EXACTLY what Obama recently said (February 2012) in a less than nuanced sort of way in a campaign ad, when he SPECIFICALLY implored the Black Community to vote for him because he’s Black.
OBAMA’S EXACT QUOTE . . .
“This month we’re announcing 2012 the launch of AFRICAN AMERICANS FOR OBAMA. Now, I don’t think there’s a better time than African-American History Month to consider the tremendous progress we’ve made through the sacrifices of so many.”
Imagine what the national and international outrage would be if Romney went to the “White” Community to effectively say to them . . . Vote for me because I’m White and you’re White?
Obama didn’t say to vote for me because I did a great job on the economy. That I’ve paid down the debt. That I’ve driven down the cost of gasoline. That I’ve brought unemployment to below 8%. That the world is a better and safer place because of me. That the size of government is smaller. That there are less stifling regulations. That taxes are lower . . . and on and on.
To assume that Obama isn’t a Race-Baiter is making a serious mistake, because no one who is a national leader in a racially blind country as is America, would have ever said anything close to that.
Remember Michelle Obama after her husband was nominated to be the Presidential Candidate for the Democrats who said:
“For The First Time In My Adult Lifetime, I’m Really Proud Of My Country”.
When one considers the enormity of reasons to be proud of America and being an American, especially in the case of the Obama’s where they both became lawyers, lived in a beautiful house in a wonderful neighborhood at the very top of the food chain, it’s hard to imagine how Michelle Obama couldn’t be proud to be an American.
Michelle Obama was a high-paid hospital administrator. Her husband was a State Senator before he became a Congressional Senator, who still “just” a State Senator when he was asked to be the Keynote Speaker at the National Democratic Convention; and she still was NOT proud of a country that made all of this happen for them.
I can’t understand how that could be possible.
During the 2008 Presidential Campaign, Michelle Obama said: “America is a Down-Right Mean Country”.
I don’t think there has ever been a country as generous and caring at home or abroad than has been the United States of America. So what exactly did she mean by that?
So . . . now that the Obamas have a real track-record of things done and said, their performance in the White House is exactly what most thinking people who had opposed them had expected.
While MOST Americans can’t sleep from worry, the Obama’s plan for multi-million dollar vacations on the backs of the people. Hell, they even spend the people’s money to fly their dog on private executive jets to meet them where they vacation, because they don’t want the dog on the same plane as them.
In the final analysis, Obama has nothing to run on . . . and everything to run away from.
And if Obama’s ONLY success in more than 3 years as President – was giving his OK for others to kill Osama Bin Laden – that says all that needs to be said.
