Full Title:Wolf Blitzer Blasts President Obama for Being NAACP No-Show: Romney Did the Right Thing. . . . The President Did Not.
Earlier today on The Situation Room on CNN, Wolf Blitzer told viewers:
Here is something Id like to say to President Obama: You should have attended the NAACP convention in Houston today. Mitt Romney did. It was the right thing to do. The Republican knows the nations oldest civil-rights group isnt exactly friendly turf but went anyway. On the whole, got a polite reception, but was booed when he said this: [from videotape] Im going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program I can find, that includes Obamacare.
Despite the boos, it was a smart political move for Mitt Romney to address the NAACP. He knows he is not going to win over a lot of black voters, but attending these kinds of events is important in reassuring a lot of the suburban white voters that he is a moderate, decent politician, someone that wants to work with all Americans. Im surprised the president was a no-show. He is sending Vice President Joe Biden, will send a video.
I checked the presidents schedule for today. He is here in Washington, D.C., over at the White House. Hes got meetings. I assume those meetings are very important. but he could have found time to pay his respects to the NAACP. The president should not take the African-American vote for granted.
Lets not be under any illusions. He received 95% of the black vote four years ago. Hell do almost as well this time around for sure. But his problem is voter turnout. The president needs excitement, he needs enthusiasm in the African-American community, especially in the battleground states he carried in 2008. Fewer African-Americans may go to the polls this time. They might not vote for Romney, but might not show up, especially now that black unemployment has risen to 14.4%. Its a lot higher than the 8.2% for all Americans. So in my opinion, the president missed an opportunity today. My bottom line is this: Romney did the right thing on this day, the president did not. Now some folks will disagree with me, Kate. Thats just me offering my sense of whats going on.
Obama doesn’t like black people. He hates his dark side.
Wolf Blitzer needs to understand Obama’s more comfortable with white people. Check out his volunteers and staff. Bush had more blacks working for him... (well, maybe not on the last one...)
In a pedantic sense, all people are “colored” due to having some level of skin pigmentation; nobody’s skin exhibits a non-colored “shade” only. So the NAACP should be for whites and blacks alike, as well as all of humanity. But the truth is, the NAACP is yet another socialist front organization, founded by socialists (white socialists, ironically), and continuing to push a hard-left socialist agenda.
. . . more than his “typical white” grandmother?
