Star Parker, writing for Town Hall, has penned a superb treatise on the confusion among blacks about the failures of Barack Obama. Her thesis is that blacks are undecided between the ideas that Barack has sold them out or that he is just incompetent. A few may even wonder if liberalism could be at fault. There is much more; read it all.
Obama is the first President ever to call on a member of the Press without looking up. First he reads the name from the teleprompter, and then he looks up to locate the person in the room. You don’t see raised hands asking for the privilege to pose a question in one of this president’s press conferences.
The fortunes of everyday Americans are on a see-saw. The economy is sitting on one end of the board and Barack Obama is on the other. America was on the downswing when Obama was riding up. Methinks Mr. Obama’s weight has peaked and America is in a bottoming phase. The keystone tenet of Alcoholics Anonymous is: first you must acknowledge you have a problem, and then you must want to fix it. The President’s actions, along with those of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the SEIU have exacerbated the nation’s woes to the point that everyone has come to acknowledge we do have a problem. From the election results of 2010 to the 64 year old lady Democrat screaming that Obama is an idiot because he won’t cut Medicaid, there is ample evidence that Americans want to fix it.
We are at the bottom of a deep hole. Call me an optimist if you must, but I think the shoveler’s shovel is finally broken. Now we are about to fix it, (the hole, not the shovel).
