This is Maxine Waters, the resident idiot in the Congressional Black Caucus speaking about the President and his current jobs tour through white America:
“We’re supportive of the president, but we’re getting tired, ya’ll. We’re getting tired. And so, what we want to do is, we want to give the president every opportunity to show what he can do and what he’s prepared to lead on. We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting. 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. We don’t know that.”
Here’s the thing Congresswoman Waters. Liberal Democrats like President Obama already assume they have the black vote in the bag, regardless of how hard Hope and Change
fifty years of liberal policies has thrown them under the bus. And it’s not so much that he’s going to see white people on his lame bus tour, but rather middle America, which includes whites, as well as blacks, as well as Hispanics, as well as Asians, etc., all across the fruited plain. With that in mind, it’s no wonder he’s out there because those are the votes not in the bag, as it were.
And of course, he needs those votes to get re-elected and continue dragging this country downward. Got it?
UPDATE. Video of the CBC meeting via Big Government:
You really feel the angst in that video. This is the failure of liberalism personified—the uncomfortably dumbfounded look of Ms. Waters (emphasis on the “dumb”), the plight of the people these liberals and their socialist policies were meant to help. All in one clip. Politically, it’s bad news for Obama—coupled with liberal supporters screaming down Debbie Wasserman Shultz in Iowa last weekend—these incidents speak volumes.
Yep, the natives are getting restless, as they were promised big government lollipops, (to borrow a phrase from Mark Steyn) and all they got were…well…nothing.
