Bring Obama Back!

As President Obama gears up for his re-election and push his Jobs Package you will see his base come roaring back. When he talked about collective bargaining in his address to Congress the other night I was overjoyed because I knew that that would resonate and inspire millions across the country, but especially in Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

Blacks fully understand that the Democratic Party is for the Middle Class and the poor, and there is no way that Black would ever throw their support behind these racist and bigoted tea-bagging republicans. But it is great to know that the Presidentís base is becoming motivated as we enter to election season.

First, the federal government unions have no collective bargaining rights, never had. Second, what has motivated them now hearing the same thing they heard 962 days ago? There hasn't been anything new of substance from any party or the president. Everything everybody says is a rehash of shit they said yesterday.

Listen, I agree with you, but when was the last time you ever saw a black family out picking strawberrys or hoeing another man's collards? It's been decades. Face it, there are jobs that American's no matter what the color won't do now, things that they have historically done forever. Here in Iowa they still hire high school kids to detassel corn but incresingly, they seed companies are hireing hispanics to do this because they bring a ready made workforce. Illegal? Can't prove it, but you get the picture

Blacks will always support him well the vast majority will because of his color . But the President is actually in my opinion throwing us under the bus . When he push for any type of amnesty bill k knowing the illegal aliens are a huge factor in my so many blacks are out of work . He as well as the rest of the nation know they take jobs especially job that require little skill jobs that alot of blacks held .

"The more he talks about race, the more votes he loses," said Randall Kennedy, author of a new book exploring racial politics and the Obama presidency. "Barack Obama had to overcome his blackness to become president ... and he's going to have to overcome it to be re-elected."

Interesting.

The Republicans should be on every channel, saying they will have a vote on Obamers "JOBS" bill, "AS SOON AS IT IS SUBMITED IN WRITING"!!!

Only thing in writing so far, is his campaign speech!!!! And even that is being scrubbed of the mistakes that the most intelligent ZERO mentioned about history!!!

Add perpetual welfare recipients and watch the $$$$'s go down. I've been advocating this for some time.

They will vote based on the color of his skin and will proudly tell you that..forget the fact that he is an incompetent buffoon.
If any other race did that it would be considered RACIST.
Obama WILL without any doubt make his re-election a Race Battle . He has nothing but the color of his skin to use.
