Why do blacks continue to make excuses for Barack Obama at every turn?
Most blacks still show unshakable support for Barack Obama while non whites who voted for Obama have reevaluated their support for him. I got criticized by the left both black and white for my comments on why the main reason blacks voted for Obama in the first place. The one question to this day that they still have a hard time answering is "how is Barack Hussein Obama any different from any other liberal politician to run for president? The answer is he isn't. Race was promoted heavily among Obama's supporters during the campaign. The word "historic" was used constantly. It's comical listening to black Obama supporters who call into radio talk shows in what seems to be desperate attempts to defend Obama and change public opinion of him. The most used talking point among black Obama supporters is that "he needs time to fix the problems" or that the people who don't like him are "racists". Of course it will never dawn on them that it is Obama's own policies that are extending the economic problems and in many cases making them worse. In a Gallup poll conducted last month it showed that Obama's support among white voters is down to just 39%. The same poll showed that black support for Obama has averaged 93% during his time in office, and has been at or above 90% nearly every week during his presidency.I commented last month for the reason for the steep decline among whites. Independents are mostly made up of white voters, and those voters are fleeing from Obama in record numbers. Blacks on the other hand are overwhelmingly registered Democrat. I believe blacks who defend Obama at every turn lack any credibility. The same black Obama supporters who loyally defend Obama were the same ones who blamed George Bush for the 911 attacks or claimed he orchestrated the 911 attacks seven months into his first term. Most blacks blamed the 2000 recession on George Bush even though the dot-com bubble started under Clinton and burst three months after George Bush was sworn into office. I find it extremely two faced that black Obama supporters want everybody else to now give Obama "a chance and more time", yet they didn't "practice what they are now preaching" when Bush was in office for eight years. I came across an interesting video interview segment conducted by a black news and opinion site called "The Grio".
Harlem isn't exactly known for producing politically savvy and knowledgeable voters. I've said many times before that those who think along lines of race tend to not think at all. Here's a classic video from last year in which a person from the Howard Stern show interviewed people in Harlem. The person presented the positions that John McCain supported and made them appear as if Barack Obama supported them instead. Hopefully race and ignorance won't factor in the 2012 outcome.
