"History is going to say that the
black middle class was decimated..."
Now that the False Messiah has blown trillion$ of the next two generation's money on would-be economic stimuli, myriad bailouts, and other misguided largesse, again crony-capitalist backers like GE and Jeffrey Immelt are doing just great while impressionable plebes of all sorts who pinned their future on hopenchange find themselves facing-down almost 10% unemployment while hanging by a thread economically.
Indeed, Obama has almost succeeded in transforming a large section of the US middle class into entitlement-addicted serfs with no home equity and little optimism... just the way he likes 'em. But it's American blacks who have really been taking the brunt of it, and it appears that for the first time in his cosseted, auto-pilot political career, Barack Obama might be held responsible for actual results... and they are crap.
And as we all decried unemployment edging-up "unexpectedly" to 9.2% nationally for July, consider that black unemployment is at a ghastly 16.2% (!) Add in those who've given up looking for work and we are talking more like 25+% black unemployed in the US today. But it can always get worse... Detroit admits to having over 30% of blacks seeking a job, plus the quitters and it's over 50%...
Beside feeling that irony, hopefully many of the 95+% of black folks who voted for Obama will also come to realize that if you blindly back a politician based on his skin color without any real due diligence or balanced consideration of alternatives, all you do is set yourself up to be used: they tell you what you want to hear and you're putty in their hands... and don't expect any gratitude from these populist con-artists, either.
-click to enlarge-Obama's big promises? lol- that was all Bovine Scatology, my friends. Assuming he ever wanted to help anybody but himself from the start, the man obviously lacks the management skill-set to deliver... as we are all so painfully experiencing together now.
The sad truth is that Barack Obama has heavily damaged black America in three ways: he's taken away much of their hard-won financial independence.... he's poisoned race relations with a totally unneeded, outdated, and vengeful victimhood narrative... and he's crushed the hopes and dreams of millions of African Americans by exposing himself -America's First Black President- as an embittered incompetent that's simply in way, way over his head.
Send a message to those who've abused your faith and took you for granted, black America... vote Republican
