Bloviating Zeppelin: Obama: Worst On Race Relations

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Obama: Worst On Race Relations


Whenever I make a post about race, I can assume it will be a post that acquires a minimal smattering of comments. A few, perhaps; three or four.

Because I submit that the bulk of Americans are predominantly uncomfortable about race. I further submit: this goes to guilt.

Rasmussen Reports indicate:

Voters Are Much Less Optimistic About Black-White Relations


Perceptions about the state of black-white relations in America have fallen dramatically since the summer of 2009. But voters are still more optimistic about that relationship than they are about relations between whites and Hispanics and between blacks and Hispanics.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 36% of voters now say relations between blacks and whites are getting better. That’s down from 62% in July of last year at the height of the controversy involving a black Harvard professor and a white policeman. That number had fallen only slightly to 55% in April of this year.

Twenty-seven percent (27%) now say black-white relations are getting worse, up 10 points from July 2009, while 33% think they’re staying about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

African-Americans are much more pessimistic than whites. Thirty-nine percent (39%) of whites think black-white race relations are getting better, but just 13% of blacks agree.

Confidence in the nation’s course among African-Americans soared after Barack Obama’s election. But then several prominent Democrats, perhaps most notably former President Jimmy Carter, suggested that opposition to the president’s health care plan was motivated in part by racism. Only 12% of all voters agreed in September of last year, but among blacks, 27% felt that way and 48% were undecided.

Facts are what they are.

Polls are what they are.

I don't know about others, but most of the time I'm simply not gonna take the time to say, "I agree with you 100% BZ!"
Except now.
I agree with you 100% BZ.

And figures lie, and liars figure... sigh... And sometimes people just do NOT want to admit what is right in front of their faces...

After Obama had been in office a few weeks, I stated, "He's going to set back race relations in the United States."

And he has.

The uniter has turned out to be the divider.

When BHO was running for POTUS, one of my friends said, "We have too many racists in America. He'll never get elected."

I said: "You're wrong. People will vote for Obama just to prove to themselves that they are not racists. America is loaded with white guilt."

Excellent post, BZ.

I submit that Mr Obama is a HUGE divider, that much is quite evident.

Mr. Obama is showing daily that he can be as incompetent as any "White" man.

What I want in a leader is competency.

Obama has done something that hasn't been done since Jimmy Peanut was POTUS, he has united the American people against him and his socialist agenda... Obama has done even more actually, he has brought the great racial divide to the fore front! He has energized the Conservative base, and the last time that happened, we got Ronald Reagan...

Sadly, we don't have ANYONE on the horizon that even remotely comes close to being another Reagan...

I'll wager we DO, Fred, they're out there. They exist. But they refrain from politics because it's a Blood Sport and they don't want their lives or their families turned inside out. They still have scruples.

On the Left Coast, the Real Conservative is Tom McClintock. He's a budgetary genius and a hard line Conservative. What kills him is that he's not portraying the Cult of Personality. He doesn't have the immediate charisma. Luckily, he's in MY district and I get to vote for him.

If you could choose one person, Fred, who might you select?

I must be a racist because my pick would be Lt. Col Allen West.

I'm with you on West, Bushwack.
Thaddeus McCotter,
Paul Ryan,
Mike Pence,
and Chris Christie are also on my beginning list.
Others too... just can't think of 'em right now.

And the thing that puts a smile on my face?
None of 'em could do worse than Bozama.

You didn't ask me, BZ, but I also believe I would go with Allen West. Or Christie. Or Fred Thompson. Or BZ, if he'd run.

And there is one place where people will express their distaste for this: the ballot box.

This may not go in the way Democrats expect because it is a private decision, known only to the voter and those tallying the results. Something is about to give and fun will be had by those not affiliated with the Left.
