Obama Consults With MSNBC Host Al Sharpton, and Other 'Civil Rights Leaders,' on Fiscal Talks (NAACP, LA RAZA, HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN etc) NOV 16, 2012 BY DANIEL HALPER
This afternoon, President Barack Obama consulted with MSNBC host Al Sharpton, who's also assicated with the National Action Network (NAN), about the fiscal talks between the White House and Congress. At the same meeting, Obama also consulted with other "leaders of civil rights and civic organizations."
Via the pool report:
President Obama and Vice President Biden met with leaders of civil rights and civic organizations to discuss negotiations over how to avoid the fiscal cliff. The meeting lasted over an hour, and participants spoke to reporters outside the West Wing after they wrapped up.
Per the White House, expected attendees included:
* Peter Berns, The Arc * Sister Simone Campbell, NETWORK * Chad Griffin, Human Rights Campaign (HRC) * Wade Henderson, Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR) * Deepa Iyer National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) * Ben Jealous, NAACP * Marc Morial, National Urban League * Janet Murguia, National Council of La Raza (NCLR) * Barry Rand, AARP * Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, MomsRising.org * Rev. Al Sharpton, National Action Network (NAN)

Ben Jealous, NAACP. Could the name be anymore appropriate when discussing redistribution? And what about the rest of the freaking country?
He’s just bringing the Nation together...for a War.
I don’t see any mention of the Mystic Knights of the Sea!
BO really hates whitie.
I read somewhere once that “Reverend” Al was good at math.
How about the civil rights of those Romney voters whose votes disappeared?
When crafting that second term agenda, who better to consult with than The Shakedown Experts?
I wonder if he still consults with Rev. Jacksuhn after the nut-cutting comment...?
Above: Democrat Fred Phelps with fellow Democrat Al Gore.
Barrack Obama, Al Sharpton, NAACP = B.R.A..
Where is the satire alert?? This is a joke right?? (sarc.)
He’ll propose harnessing the hot air emanating from Al’s mouth as a renewable energy source.
Who ARE these people?
Looks like obama’s urban shock troops, about to get the hood all riled up over benefit cuts.
This is all about pandering to his base. In reality, Obama surrounds himself almost exclusively with non-black advisors.
