For three and a half years Barack Obama has unleashed economic devastation on the African American community. And so far, facing little backlash for skipping out on the NAACP, suggests that black supporters of the president don’t mind grabbing their ankles.
Mitt Romney, on the other hand, did address the abortion backing, civil rights group last week. And for vowing to repeal Obamacare, Romney got booed.
(Cue the cacophony of liberal media spin…now).
But at least Mitt Romney actually entered the “Lion’s Den.”
How did Barack Obama show love to his most ardent supporters? Before he sent Joe Biden to address the NAACP, his campaign released a 5 five-page report in response to Romney’s speech.
The Report is titled, Mitt Romney: The Wrong Choice For African Americans.
It basically argues that if black Americans support Mitt Romney’s agenda, they will see unemployment numbers nearly twice the national average for his entire presidency and that black youth unemployment will hover around 30 to 40 percent. Black families will see their median net worth cut in half and a majority of young black children would have to rely on food stamps to eat. The memo warns that in President Romney’s hometown, crime and murder rates will skyrocket and blacks will account for nearly 78 percent of the homicide victims.
Oh, crap! That is Barack Obama’s record in the black community: A social-economic wrecking ball slamming through the neighborhood.
The President’s memo also maintains that Mitt Romney will protect his rich friends from tax increases and mentions Mitt Romney’s rugged stance on repealing Obamacare. (Cue the boos). However, the president’s memo does not tell blacks about the 21 new taxes hikes they stand to pay when Obamacare is fully implemented.
Obama’s memo also slams Mitt Romney for opposing the Recovery Act and says a President Romney will “slash” funding for green jobs. But again, the presidents memo does not tell black voters about how Barack Obama’s government-backed green energy loan program, sent “$16.4 billion of the $20.5 billion in loans granted as of Sept. 15 2011, to companies either run by or primarily owned by Obama’s financial backers—individuals who were bundlers for his campaign, members of his National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party,” according to author, Peter Schweizer.
That totals a whopping 80 percent. Way to fight for the black community, Mr. President.
The president’s memo also blasts Mitt Romney saying the governor would “Cut public school funding and leave our children stranded without a plan.” The memo does not tell blacks about how President Obama loves poor black children, so much so that he sat on his thumbs, TWICE, while congressional Democrats killed the hugely successful, D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program; a program that effectively helped about 98 percent of black and Hispanic, low-income families in D.C. have access to quality education.
On the whole, in five pages and over 2,ooo words, the president’s memo mentions the word “debt” once. Sadder still, it mentions the phrase “reduces the deficit” only twice—details not included.
The only thing that deserves to be booed is Obama’s abysmal record in the black community. Barack Obama will continue to golf, hold fundraisers with Wall Street titans and Hollywood elites, while ignoring blacks just like he ignored the NAACP.
Which begs the question: If 95 percent of any racial group dedicates decades of nearly unflinching allegiance to one political party and one philosophical agenda, aren’t they just begging to be taken for granted?
PJTV’s Alfonzo Rachel put it best: It’s strange how the black community for the most part opposes homosexuality yet seems to love being politically, socially, and mentally sodomized by the democrat party.
The polls are pretty consistent and it seems, sadly, that at the end of the day, the bases on which a majority of black Americans who support Obama, begins and ends with his skin color.
