Record number of American’s think Obama Sucks! The Predestined Failure of Obama's Energy Policy - National Media’s Bias Coverage of Rising Gas Prices - Obama’s Harvard Pal Derrick Bell Was a Marxist, Too - Obama apologizes for Afghan slayings, still ignores Mexican ‘Fast and Furious’ murders - Black Website Axes…Are Republican Voters Too Old And Too White? - Skank Fluke the Welfare Queen - Why Vulgarity Matters

 Record number of Americans now hold 'strongly negative' view on Obama
Disapproval of President Obama’s handling of the economy is heading higher — alongside gasoline prices — as a record number of Americans now give the president “strongly” negative reviews on the 2012 presidential campaign’s most important issue, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Increasingly pessimistic views of Obama’s performance on the economy — and on the federal budget deficit — come despite a steadily brightening employment picture and other signs of economic improvement, and they highlight the political sensitivity of rising gas prices.

The potential political con­sequences are clear, with the ­rising public disapproval reversing some of the gains the president had made in hypothetical general-election matchups against possible Republican rivals for the White House. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and former senator Rick Santorum (Pa.) now both run about evenly with Obama. The findings come just five weeks after Obama appeared to be getting a boost from the improving economy.
Gas prices are a main culprit...
 The Predestined Failure of Obama's Energy Policy

One of the greatest failings in leftist thinking stems from the mistaken belief that societies can be easily manipulated. President Obama's adopted energy policy makes for a wonderful example of this failure in thought. The entirety of "green energy" is filled with micro-thinking, where a cursory (at best) understanding of technology and engineering has combined with narrowed visions and worldly ignorance to create "energy solutions" which fail in technological readiness, suitability to purpose, or market support. The failure of "green" becomes readily evident with one simple statement of fact: most "green" technologies are well over 100 years old, and there has been no significant scientific achievement in these technologies for approximately 30 years. With the possible exceptions of photovoltaics and batteries, the "green" technologies are all mature. For a mature technology to have little market presence or demand is highly indicative that it fails the cost-benefit analysis of its potential consumer. If the various "green" technologies provided desirable benefits at appropriate price points, then they would be booming, without massive government subsidies or dictates.

National Media’s Bias Coverage of Rising Gas Prices - AIM  
The issue of rising costs at the gas pump is a reality many American families are fighting with daily. Americans drive to visit family, friends, or to go to work every day to help provide the American dream for their family. The cost to fill up their cars has a great effect on their daily lives. The national media’s coverage of the rising costs has been anything but balanced. The national media should report the facts about the rise in gas prices objectively and let the people make their own decisions.
Instead, the national media repeatedly downplays and defends the rising cost of gasoline. A recent study by the Business and Media Institute (BMI) found that news coverage of gas prices are four times less likely under this administration than under the previous.

Not a penny more - Powerline
In “Not a penny more” alluded to the taxes baked into Obamacare as well as other taxes scheduled to take effect. Now Grover Norquist compiles a list of the tax increase in our future if we don’t do something about it soon. Norquist’s piece is “The taxman cometh.” A dirty joke hid behind the title of the Eugene O’Neill play to which the heading of Norquist piece alludes. In this case, however, the joke is on us.
Obama is not done yet. He has lots of ideas for higher taxes. Norquist concludes his compilation with the observation:
The list goes on and on. During this election season, President Obama needs to answer this question: “why do you want to raise taxes in every imaginable way when our economy is weak and millions of Americans are looking for jobs?”
It is almost unbelievable that the subject of pending tax increases has barely been touched on in the media during this election season. The media are of course doing their best to assist the Obama campaign’s misdirection.

Wake Up, America!… Obama’s Harvard Pal Derrick Bell Was a Marxist, Too - Gateway Pundit 
 Obama’s racist mentor at Harvard, Derrick Bell, whom he told everyone to embrace, is a raving Marxist, too. Morgen at Verum Serum dug this audio up after it was curiously buried by CUNY TV in New York.

The Republican presidential primaries have drawn an electorate that is much older and less ethnically-diverse than the rest of the country, exit polls in key states show, a pattern likely to continue as the GOP holds primaries on Tuesday in Alabama and Mississippi.
An analysis of the GOP primary electorate, as first detailed by National Journal's Ron Brownstein, illustrates the increasing divide between Democrats, who are heavily reliant on support from blacks, Hispanics and voters under 40, and a GOP that is increasingly dominated by older and white voters.
For example, in the 2008 general election, 75 percent of voters in Arizona were white, 4 percent black, 16 percent Hispanic. But in the GOP primary last month, 89 percent of voters were white, 1 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic.
In the 2008 general election, there was about an equal number of voters between ages 18-29 and voters over 65 in Arizona. In the recent Republican primary, 23 percent of voters were over 65, while only 12 percent were between ages 18 and 29.
A similar pattern holds true in many of the key states that will determine who wins the fall election between President Obama and whoever is the Republican nominee. The Ohio electorate in the GOP primary last week was 96 percent white and a quarter over 65, compared to 83 percent white and 17 percent over 65 in the general election four years ago.
This divide is not surprising, as African-Americans have long voted Democratic, and Hispanics and voters under 30 also traditionally lean toward the Democratic Party. But it is already shaping this November's election, even before the GOP primary is over.

Ok I’ve been doing my blog reading most of the morning catching up and I was not necessarily in a ranting mood, but then I head to the black websites to check out some items and I see another idiot post regarding the racial divide between those who claim to be Republican versus those who claim to be Democrat.  

I’m not amazed or astonished by the lack of thinking and intellectual dishonesty of those of color who openly campaign for Obama while pretending to be objective journalists.
I’ve asked the question before as have countless others and the question will be continually asked until some sociological genius is able to decipher.
What exactly are the prevailing issues of the day that are only specific to blacks versus whites?

The cost of gas that I struggle with on a daily basis, is that solely a white issue? Not according to the ignorant woman who famously spoke after an Obama rally where she proclaimed that she would not have to worry about putting gas in car because Obama will take care of her. However not one single black blog or website will tell the truth regarding Obama’s direct role in just why gas prices are as high as they are now.
Do Negros indeed drive, catch the bus, fly, or heat their homes?    
How about taxation, whether or not that taxation is tied to the price of fuel or food last I checked blacks do indeed share the taxation burden with whitey.
Immigration, illegal or otherwise, jobs, pensions, retirement, foreign policy c’mon folks and especially to those blacks who may accidently stumble across this blog, explain the cultural and racial divide of political issues.      

For any given issue, the truth is, we probably don't understand it well enough to make good decisions about it. We need to become educated in some depth before we can decide well. Even then, we need to know that our decisions and understanding is limited by the depth of understanding we have about an issue and the influences of our personality and experience. We need to keep our minds open to new possibilities and to the possibility that we are wrong.
If you are reading this and you are black and you say to yourself I have always voted Democrat… look around has that action resulted in a better life for you and yours. Only you can answer that question.

The emotion of being wrong is the greatest enemy of the truth. If we can overcome the emotion of being wrong, just as we patiently wait out a two-year-old's temper tantrum, we can learn. It isn't easy but it's always a good idea. The acceptance of our ignorance is the first step to understanding complex ideas. We must know that we are deciding on incomplete information and we must accept that fact.
This is my issues with black media; they know full well that blacks are only going to digest material from black sources so if these sources intentionally mislead and misrepresent thereby blacks remain ignorant to the facts.
My blog as most of you know is simply an aggregate tool, I post links to what I have read and what interests me, choose to read it or not but if you choose to disagree with the slant on this particular site ask yourself why. Is there anything here that is misleading or was there something you saw and read that you have not seen anywhere else?
Are you at least open to the possibility that some of what you may see here is at least worthy of investigation?   
Let me say again, the emotion of being wrong is the greatest enemy of the truth.
I believe what I believe and I have the political slant I do based on knowledge NOT emotion and in addition to that I’m not afraid of being wrong.

As the highlighted story notes blacks have historically and blindly voted Democrat. As I have said numerous times before blacks are the only racial or ethnic demographic that disproportionately votes for one political party and where has this gotten black folks?   
I stole the following from a black websites and various policy papers focusing on black demographics: The following information was from 2010 but things certainly have not improved.

In 1978, a black child could expect to live five years shorter than a white child. Today, a black child's life expectancy is six years shorter.

In 1978, black family poverty was four times that of whites. Today, that ratio remains unchanged.

In 1978, the black adult unemployment rate was twice that of whites. Today, that disparity still exists. In a 2006 economy that boasts just 5 percent unemployment, black unemployment is more than 10 percent.

In 1978, the median income of a black family was 60 percent of the median white family income. Today, the median black family income has risen to 66 percent of white income after 28 years.

Certainly the overall status of blacks in America has improved however putting ALL their trust in the Democratic Party has kept blacks still at a significant disadvantage in America.
The middle class has quadrupled in the last 50 years however the single greatest indicator of progress is home ownership. Less than 50 percent of black families (compared to 75 percent of whites) own their own homes.
And remember folks this is before Obama and the Democrats screwed up the housing market. In case you forgot Google: How the Democrats caused the housing crisis, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac
So ask yourself is poverty, income, unemployment, health a whites only issues.
Blacks die disproportionately earlier due to poor health habits, black don’t own homes because most are far more likely to spend it on material possessions rather than saving.
Blacks don’t put a premium on education thereby an uneducated or undereducated child won’t get the job skills they need and subsequently won’t be qualified to get a job that pays a decent wage or even health benefits.
A significant number of new HIV cases are in the black community and who suffers black women. Black women are diagnosed with AIDS at rates 25 times that of white women and down low black men are the root cause of that dilemma.
Hell blacks are more likely to have a regular barber or hair dresser than a doctor…
So ask yourself because these issues disproportionately affect the black community does that make them black issues, of course not but because black folks have hitched their wagon to Democrat left wing liberal doctrine they have become detached from reality and do what far too many blacks do as the writer of this story only illustrates and that is too many blacks attach skin shading to politics.

I have never advocated voting for anyone solely based on what political party they belonged and Republicans don’t have all the answers. People only need to be aware and not be ignorant to the realities of the world around them.

The story points out that Republicans have done little to court black voters; I said long ago that I don’t give a damn if Republicans reach out the black voters because in the long run it does not matter.
Blacks have chosen to be led by the nose politically and the results are what you read above. This will not change anytime soon and the bottom line is we all choose our own fate. Blacks have allowed the Democratic Party to piss on the collective legs of black folks and presented it as a warm inviting shower. When the slave mentality is engrained in the soul not amount of evangelizing can ever change that mentality.
Being intellectually short sided and ignorant at your own peril.

Fluke the Welfare Queen - The American Spectator
Now that the media feeding frenzy has calmed at least for a bit, it's worth saying that we've missed the whole point on Mizz Sandra Fluke. Fluke is the Georgetown Law School student who testified against the religious right of her school to refuse to pay for contraception because to do so would violate its religious principles.
It's titillating -- but irrelevant -- to speculate about Fluke's sexually promiscuity. To try to characterize her as Rush Limbaugh did could be accurate but isn't connected to the political issue at hand.

Sandra Fluke is a welfare queen. Remember, back in the 1980s, the image of the welfare queen? It was a caricature of a woman on welfare who had borne many children for men who she knew little or not at all. The welfare queen made an industry of producing children because she knew the state would pay her to do so, and pay for her children's needs from food to clothes to medical care.

Sandra Fluke is the model Welfare Queen for the 21st Century. Upper middle class to start, going to a very expensive (and very liberal law) school on scholarship, and now (as we know from news reports) a tool of the White House media shop. She won't have kids like the old-style welfare queens. Instead, she will first absorb all the government benefits she can while in school, and then work for a liberal law firm or political organization as a political activist. Or she may become another trusted lieutenant of Eric Holder at Justice. She is a product of the American version of the cradle-through-career indoctrination and career of the old Soviet Komsomol.

While I didn't vote for Obama, I held out hope (hope for both the country and blacks) that his administration would be much better for the whole country than it has turned out to be. One of the lasting legacies he leaves behind is that he's made it all that much harder for any non-traditional candidate to become president. That saddens me to no end.

Oh I agree 100%. While I learned a great deal about him before the election and did not trust him at all, I did deep down hope that I was wrong about him. I hoped that he would be someone that young black kids could look up to with pride and aspire to be like.
Obama is a contemptible man black kids would be just as well served admiring a neighborhood drug dealer. The only difference between Obama and that drug dealer is that he wears a tie, gets to fly in a cool airplane and he has entire federal government at his disposal.
And yes while America did finally elect a black president he has screwed up so bad nobody who sees this blog will be around to witness the next one.

I was torn a new one at another site for saying that as a whole when any group votes en mass for any political party that party winds up ignoring that group. Why do anything for them if they are willing to vote time and time again? The black vote was diluted by their continuing to vote democrat and not demanding anything for that vote. If the black vote was split between the political parties, politicians would have to sit up and take notice.

I remember Bush (W) attending a meeting of the NAACP and hearing the vitriol hurled at him and wondered why should he have even bothered to attend, but realized it was expected that he would attend. He went and got treated shabbily by those in attendance. That issue alone pretty much made me wonder where was the respect that should have been shown a guest?
