Md. black voters angry, still back Obama

Sep 4, 2012 Full story: WTOP-FM Washington 13

Maryland's black communities overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama's historic rise to the presidency four years ago, but this time around, his support for same-sex marriage and the nation's continuing high unemployment are tempering African-American voters' enthusiasm for his re-election bid.

This is a real issue for me also. I'm glad that many Marylanders are in the same boat.

Nonsense and you went through the thread giving everyone a negative judgement because you are as shallow as you claim other to be. I never said I was voting for Obama. I won't be voting for Romney that's for sure. As the thread stated, I live in MD and I have strong feeling about the gay marriage issue. While I would "like" to support our president I can't find it in myself to help the homosexual movement gain it's footing even further.

You "Sir" only drive home the point that "certain" people in the world don't care to look at how complexed the black vote is or can be. You based this irrational behavior on a need to feel like blacks are all the same. Which shows how lazy minded you are that you can't step outside of you blind biased long enough to use commonsense.
Why would anyone vote for Romney?

What it all comes down to is the president's debates from here on out will either convince me to vote for him or leave me feeling like I still can't consciously support gay marriage.

So you are saying it's his fault that those companies went to the President asking for help when they either knew their companies were lost, or "they fail" to make the best decisions with the bail out money?

I'd fault him for not trying to help, before I fault him for those execs running their companies into the ground.

He has not tried to uphold the law of the land. He has gone against the constitution at every turn. You can love him because he is black(half black), but as far as being lawful, he is not. Most presidents haven't followed the constitution in all of history, very few.
