Weekly Standard ^ | 11/16/12 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 11/17/2012 10:06:21 AM PST by crosshairs

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) * Aaron Smith, Young Invincibles * Rev. Jim Wallis, Sojourners

Pool can confirm that Campbell, Henderson, Iyer, Jealous, Morial, Murguia, Rand, Sharpton, Smith and Wallis were there, 'cause they all came out and talked.

NAACP? The Urban League? La Raza?!

And polls showed that voters thought that Mitt Romney was only marginally more qualified on economic issues?

Trying to find my representative in there. Guess the closest would be the president and vice president. Hell, I’ll be fine.

The ONLY reason to meet with these race baiting A-holes is to talk about redistributing wealth from whites to blacks. This is despicable.

Just further proof to the ageless theory:

Put a REAL DUMB ASS in charge and it gets harder and harder for him to keep putting subordinates (yes men/women) under him so the RDA can be the ‘smartest’ person in the room.

Yes, there are plenty of them out there but some of THEM are so dumb they don’t even know what they don’t know.

I was disappointed that he did not include Pimp with a Limp, the Reverend Farahkhan, Snoopy Snoopy Pop Dog, JZ and an assortment of other representative of the progressive intellect. Definitely not inclusive.

So glad Romney wasn’t elected (/sarc). He would have met with actual financial gurus and business leaders...

There is no doubt in my mind that Obama’s comment about revenge was aimed at whites. There is also no doubt that these people have every intention of enslaving the white race for as many years as they can.
Why do we never hear a black “minister” preaching forgiveness?

What a joke.

My 25’ flagpole has been bare for over 4 years. On January 20, 2013 I will raise a Confederate flag.

For the past four years, I've flown the Bonny Blue Flag ... used initially in both the Republic of Texas and in the CSA ... and I anticipate flying it for the foreseeable future.

How pathetic. No matter what the media reports, Barack Obama is not cool. He is nerdy, like scarecrow weaving in the wind, way over his head. No wonder many believe he wants to cause damage to this country.

Al Sharpton should be in general population at a federal prison.
