Obama hasn’t been that bad.
This is why the few miracles he hasn’t been able to perform, like reducing unemployment, have been made to seem as ghastly as if he’d murdered his actress girlfriend, plunged the country deeper into Vietnam, broken into his rival political party’s headquarters, fallen down the stairs of Air Force One, gotten American hostages taken in Iran, fought covert wars in Central and South America, lied about raising taxes, had an affair with a White House intern, and started two wars against non-threatening sovereign nations.

Folks I did not say this shit but let me tell you no matter how bad things get black folks don’t give a shit and they will support this dude come hell or high water.
For black folks to diss Obama dude would need to roll up in the hood bitch slap a few women, piss in a few dudes pimp cups, commit a drive by or two or get caught fucking a white woman.

Black leaders turn up the heat on President Obama
If there’s anything close to a political certainty in 2012, it’s that Barack Obama will get more than 90 percent of the African-American vote.
But that doesn’t mean every black Obama supporter will vote for him happily – nor does it guarantee that turnout will approach the stratospheric levels of 2008, even though Obama needs a huge showing from his base to offset the expected loss of swing voters in states like North Carolina, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

With that in mind, prominent black leaders — fearing Obama is not only taking them for granted but avoiding them in public — have turned up the heat on the nation’s first African-American president, transforming all-in-the-family concerns into open criticism of the president at a time when they had hoped the completion of a monument to Martin Luther King Jr. near the National Mall would bring a moment of unity.
The leaders are tired, they say, of Obama dog-whistling his support for a broad black agenda rather than explicitly embracing the kind of war on racism, poverty and economic segregation embodied by King.
“You can spend a lot of time trying to win over white independents, but if you don’t pay attention to your base, African Americans, if you have not locked up your base yet, you’ve got a serious problem,” said CNN contributor Roland Martin.

“African-Americans will vote for him again, 88, 92, 95 percent. The question is what’s the turnout? I’ll vote for you. But will I bring ten other people along, like I did in 2008? That’s the danger here for him. He doesn’t have the historical factor to lean on as much in 2012 as he did in 2008… And the first step, is that he has to be willing to speak to this audience, black people.”

Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?

Listen up Negro leaders (journalists/bloggers ect), Obama has you… he knows damn well that he does not have to do shit or say shit to you people because black folks are sheep, independent though is a fantasy particularly when it comes to politics.
One indicator that these so-called black leaders outrage is disingenuous because if they really felt that Obama was clearly dissing them they would say fuck him and start the noise of supporting another Democrat candidate for the presidency.

1 in 4 Dems Want to Dump Obama...

Black leaders get traction from all of this fake outrage and black journalists for the first and likely only time have inside access to a president.
Hollywood actors and other sycophant Negro stars won’t diss him because they want to attend more hip hop cook outs on the White House lawn before America hopefully boots his idiot ass out.
Negros won’t really do jack to Obama unless… I will say again IF HE GETS CAUGHT FUCKING A WHITE WOMAN then all bets are off! Not even Oprah will back him if he did that.

Obama faces uncomfortable questions from black community, lawmakers

Early Letter Shows That Even As a Law Student Obama Was In Way Over His Head - Gateway Pundit
Author Jack Cashill discovered a previously unreleased letter by Barack Obama the law student this week that proves that the Chicago community organizer was in way over his head even back in law school.
 Cashill is the author of Deconstructing Obama. The literary expert discovered months before the November 2008 election: nothing in Obama’s history suggested he was capable of writing either Dreams or his 2006 book, The Audacity of Hope. In fact, as Cashill continued his research, he came to the shocking conclusion that the real craftsman behind Dreams was likely terrorist emeritus Bill Ayers.

Drug testing of welfare applicants a GOP fishing expedition
During his 2010 gubernatorial campaign, Rick Scott promised to keep drug abusers off Florida's welfare rolls.
Scott, who called for drug testing of welfare applicants with Elmer Gantry-like fervor and credibility while on the stump, got his way earlier this year when the state's GOP-dominated legislature passed a law requiring such examinations.
"Studies show that people that are on welfare are higher users of (illegal) drugs than people not on welfare," the Florida governor said on CNN shortly before the law took effect in July. While there are also studies that dispute Scott's contention, his push for drug testing has inspired copycat efforts in at least 26 other states.
His scheme has also hit an unexpected snag. So far, just 2% of Florida's welfare applicants have tested positive for illegal drug use; another 2% failed to complete the application process; and 96% were found to be drug-free. While every applicant is required to pay for their drug test, the state must reimburse those who pass.
Takes the Fifth
Even so, Scott — who invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination 75 times during a 2000 civil suit brought against him and Columbia/HCA, the troubled company he led — has shown no misgivings about treating poor Floridians like criminals. That's what happens when ideology overtakes good sense.

Look as someone who occasionally indulges there is no correlation between drug use and being on welfare. I live near Lawrence Kansas (still work there) but let me tell you most of the people who live in this community and that include the most upstanding citizens all or the vast majority are drug users. Smoking a fucking joint or bubbling the bong does not make you a degenerate. Lack of education is the likely culprit of someone being on welfare and you get generations of welfare recipients because the parents were uneducated. You also get there because so many men are worthless deadbeats and they don’t give a fuck about the kids they produce.
I don’t disagree with this guy’s assessment; this is nothing more than a GOP fishing expedition and it looks good on the surface. Instead of spending money piss testing welfare recipients figure out a way to get these people educated and make them productive citizens. We on the right bitch about not wanting the government to become daddy we should be equally as outraged when it plays moral cop too.

Here’s a look at Obama’s new chief economist, Alan Krueger …  Looks like Alan Krueger has dabbled with the idea of a VAT which, as the Wall Street Journal pointed out just last week, is a sure way to grow the size of government.

Alan Krueger also co-authored a paper that showed that extending unemployment benefits will likely exacerbate joblessness .. running counter to Obama’s economic argument for an unemployment benefit extension.

Last month’s 117,000 expansion in nonfarm payrolls wasn’t even strong enough to meet population growth — and the August report may even be worse.

Americans have a more favorable view of every other industry — including oil and gas — than of the federal government.

Taxpayer outrage: The Postal Service spent $4.3 million on employees who did nothing in the first half of the year because of requirements in union agreements.

One quarter of Democrats would like to see their party nominate a candidate other than Barack Obama in 2012.

Warren Buffett says folks like him should have to pay more taxes -- but it turns out his firm, Berkshire Hathaway, hasn’t paid what it’s already owed for years.

Another deportation fugitive in the Obama family - Michelle Malkin
Over the past decade, I’ve reported on America’s bottomless deportation abyss. After the 9/11 attacks, it finally dawned on federal homeland security officials that maybe it wasn’t such a smart policy to allow 400,000 illegal aliens who had been ordered deported to remain on the loose. These absconders who entered the country illegally, evaded judicial deportation orders, and absconded from justice were beneficiaries of a chaotic system clogged by conflicting statutes, incomprehensible administrative regulations, bureaucratic and judicial fiefdoms, selective enforcement, and a feeding frenzy of obstructionist immigration lawyers.
It is a climate which continues to favor illegal aliens’ rights over citizens’ safety.

Yes, Social Security is a Ponzi scheme
There goes Rick Perry again, saying things that make liberals’ heads explode.
Speaking to a crowd in Iowa this weekend, the Texas governor and GOP presidential hopeful doubled down on statements he made in his book, Fed Up!, that Social Security is essentially a pyramid scheme.
“It is a Ponzi scheme for these young people,” Perry said. “The idea that they’re working and paying into Social Security today, that the current program is going to be there for them, is a lie. It is a monstrous lie on this generation, and we can’t do that to them.”
The left reacted, predictably, with shock and outrage. Liberal blog Firedoglake called Perry’s rhetoric “wingnutty talk” and “crazy shit.”
So just how apt is the comparison between a Ponzi scheme and the popular entitlement program?
A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment plan that pays returns to investors with their own money, rather than with actual profits. It lures investors with higher-than-usual payouts — money coming, of course, from new investors.
Since Ponzi schemes depend on perpetual growth and pay out more than they takes in, they’re ultimately doomed to failure. The only question is how much money a scammer can pilfer before the pyramid crashes down or the law sniffs the scheme out.
Exhibiting its distinctively strained logic, Daily Kos writes, “The only way Social Security could ever become anything like a Ponzi scheme is if we suddenly ended Social Security.”
Think Progress adds that entitlement programs like Social Security aren’t Ponzi schemes because they reward “those who pay into them with guaranteed benefits.”
Whether or not a Ponzi scheme and Social Security share much in common rests on whether one accepts the fundamental premise that Social Security’s benefits are guaranteed.
