I wonder will the Congressional Black Caucus ever realize that they are nothing more then foot soldiers for the Democratic Party and nothing more. They have no power and they have no influence within the party. They are in essence a black shell group with three letters on it's letterhead to make them seem more important then what they really aren't. Even Barack Obama knows this. That's why when he addressed the CBC as few days ago, he told them to take off their bedroom slippers and put on their marching boots. Obama has been criticized by the Congressional Black Caucus for ignoring them in the past
. As Obama's soaring economy continues to impact blacks in record numbers,
he's been silent on the issue, and that has caused blacks to actually start to question their support for him. Well Obama heard the "cries" of the CBC, but he didn't take responsibility for his policies having a negative impact on blacks. This is what his message to the CBC was instead
. Besides telling blacks via the CBC to "stop crying, mumbling and complaining",
he said he expect the CBC to march with him. Typical Obama, he wants his supporters to do for him, but he can care less about them
. I've never known for Obama to say to his non black special interests allies to stop their complaining, mumbling and crying. I know he doesn't take that tone with his wealthy progressive friends at his $35,000 a plate fund raisers. I also know he doesn't say those words, when he's speaking at other special interest group gatherings. He said what he said in front of the CBC for a reason. He knows the blacks are his most die hard supporters, and he knows that he can talk trash to them, and they will still support him to the end
. That was proven by the ovation he received as he was telling them to stop crying and complaining . Imagine if a Republican would have gotten in front of the CBC and told them that, even if the Republican was black. Flunkies are known for be accepting of verbal abuse as long as they like the person who is giving it to them. I can't say that all members of the CBC are flunkies in this case. One black progressive kook actually had enough sense for once to stand up and call out Obama for what he said. Maxine "tea party can go to hell" Waters wasn't clapping during Obama's scolding of the CBC , and she questioned his "choice of word
s"on the CBS Early Show. I can't believe I am in agreement with Kerosene Maxine. I suppose hell can freeze over for a minute or so. This is what Maxine doesn't understand. Obama and the Democratic Party know they will always have the majority of the black vote. By them knowing this, they know they will never have to do anything of substance to earn it. It's a known given by the party. Put it another way, "WHY DO THEY NEED TO BUY THE BLACK COW, WHEN THEY'VE BEEN GETTING THE BLACK MILK FOR FREE FOR OVER FORTY FIVE YEARS
"? The Hispanic vote isn't a guaranteed lock yet as it pertains to the percentages that blacks vote Democrat, ,so the Democrats have to actually do things for them unlike with blacks. I wrote in a previous post what the Democratic Party expects of the CBC. Obama just came out and said.
Know their role aka "I expect you all to march with me
Shut the hell up aka "shake it off, stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying"
Do what we say aka "take off your bedroom slippers and put on your marching shoes
