More obama change brought to you by Maxine Waters, Tip Johnson, John Lewis, and other members of the black caucus. Atlanta has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation, wonder why. Would you obama supporters like to tell us?

As bad as the unemployment is in Atlanta (10.5%) obama has decided to keep all illegal immigrants here who have no criminal records. They will be able to take over the few jobs available. More of obama change, you can kiss your hope goodbye. He sees these illegal criminals as potential democratic voters for him in the 2012 election. Can obama make it any worse for America?

John Lewis was on hand to offer his expertise concerning the lack of a jobs for his black constituents .
I guess he just does,nt give a damn about your joblessness if your White or Latino ???
Nothing like asking a person who has never held a private sector job what he thinks about all those jobless black folks .
Oh well the same could be said for Obama !!!

Why would anyone support a president like obama who has caused Atlanta to slide into such an economic morass of unemployment. John Lewis and Tip Johnson should be thrown out of office as soon as the next election. If these two cared about Atlanta blacks they would stop obama's crazy economic actions of over taxing, over spending, and borrowing from China ASAP.

If the Congressional White Caucus had held this event it would have been air conditioned. Too bad the Congressional White Caucus would be considered racist!

"....president like obama who has caused Atlanta to slide into such an economic morass of unemployment."

If you think Obama CAUSED it rather than Bush, this simply shows how stupid and hardheaded you are. Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh are obviously set to be recorded on your radio and DVR every day and they fill you bookshelf.

George Bush is the ONLY president in the US History who has caused a recession TWICE during his term. If you were too blind to see it present one, then why were Obama and McCain arguing how they would fix it. And in case you aren't catching the point here, it came around BEFORE OBAMA.

I do not argue that he has made things worse, but he did not cause it. And McCain's "cure" was to "just let it sit and let it recover on it's own". Yeah, what a great idea.

And now, we have nothing but trash running to replace him.

This attack on Bush is getting silly. People fell for it the first year of obama's term, but after he has blown all the trillions on his socialist stimulus programs to only make it worse. Now only the hard core obama base and idiots still claim to the blame Bush theory. Remember obama saying, "If you don't allow me to spend these trillions on my stimulus package unemployment might get as high as 8%"? Where have you been? When Bush left office unemployment was at 5%, and now obama has it at near 10%. Place the blame accurately at obama's feet where it belongs, and give up on the "blame Bush" economic program. BTW, socialism has never worked, and never shall, give up.

When you consider how long they have blamed slavery on ALL white people, even the ones who dies to free slaves, it's not a bit surprising that they will blame Bush for ALL of Obama's failings for the next few generations. Facts have no place in this discussion. It is driven entirely by passion and reinforced by decades of racial hatred of whites.

So when does the "payback" mentality end? When does all the whining end? When do black Americans start building their own pride?

Thank you. You just pointed out my statement of you being one of the millions of people stupid enough to look only one direction and hear only one version.

Your saying that all of what I was saying was against Bush, yet I was only saying he started the decline(s) of this country and I also did say that Obama has been to the negative also. This shows all of us aren't as simple minded as yourself and are willing and able to see the truth.

If Al Gore changed party just to get in as president, you would vote for him because of the label.

Now that you have read this, get back to your Fox News.

"Facts have no place in this discussion."

WOW. Thank you. You placed it on the spot right there in reference to you and your friend here about the shallow, simple minded ones. No wonder this country is on it's way out.

Your example of "ALL white people getting blamed" is no different than all black people getting blamed for Obama getting elected or all black people getting blamed when ONE commits murder.

Only the feckless misinformed attack the messenger rather than the problem as you did in your post. I find your post attacking me rather than the root cause of the problem typical of liberal socialists. BTW, I would never vote for Al Gore, proof you don't know anymore about me than you do about the current problems America now faces as a result of obama's bizarre spending.

I don't blame Obama any more or any less than I blame Bush. The real culprits of this mess we find ourselves in is Congress. Obama could have huffed and puffed all he wanted but had the Republicans stood their ground, the stimulus money would not have been spent. Had the Democrats stood up to Pelosi and Reed a different outcome would already be seen.

They all lined up, both Republicans and Democrats with their hands out panting at the money they would take back to their districts. So here we are and the future looks as bleak as it did two years ago and no one is asking the tough questions nor offering real solutions.
-Abolishing the existing I.R.S. tax brackets and replacement with the Flat Tax.
-Incentives for corporations to bring our jobs home.
-Removal of our men and women from two "engagements" half a world away from home that we have no possibility of having a positive outcome.
-Election reform.
-And last but not least, cleaning up our own local and state governments with qualified candidates not elected because of the color of their skin or their political leanings but because they have the nerve, the ideas and the where with all to get the damn job done.

WASHINGTON—The House ethics committee has named Washington lawyer Billy Martin as an outside counsel to investigate California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.

The announcement Wednesday follows months of conflict in the committee over handling of the case.

The committee last year alleged that Waters improperly tried to obtain a federal bailout for a bank where her husband owns stock. Waters, a senior member of the Financial Services Committee has denied wrongdoing.

Waters last year demanded that the committee go ahead with a trial on the allegations. This week, however, she asked for dismissal of the case. Her attorney cited internal committee documents that showed two committee lawyers communicated solely with Republicans.

The lawyer, Stanley Brand, said a fair trial is now impossible.

That's a bad analogy. Everybody knew that nearly all black voters would vote for Obama and they did. It was no big shock. However, there are not enough black voters to get him into the top seat. That took a LOT of white voters. Amazing the way all those nasty, racist whiteys voted for a black guy for president isn't it? I wonder how many of them realize they are STILL hated by the majority of blacks in America simply because they have white skin?

I don't think he'll lose. I think the powers that be will fear black rioting so much they will do anything to keep him from losing, even to Cain. The republicans look like Keystone Cops right now, reminding me a LOT of when they rolled out that fossil, McCain as the top man after the convention. I see history rhyming again.
