Drats! We are All Racists Now!

Wow! That was fast! Wasn’t it just yesterday that disagreeing with President Obama was an automatic indication you were a racist?

It seems that the wheels are falling off the Obama bandwagon faster than a government funded solar panel company can file bankruptcy. The rumblings have been there for some time, and Maxine Waters deserves credit for pushing over (arguably) the first domino. Not that the mass exodus from the Administration was not a sign that things were not going so well at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but the liberals were not really allowed to notice. The rest of us did, but we were supposed to ignore the warning signs.

It seems that “Mad Maxine” Waters says the Congressional Black Caucus is getting tired of covering for Obama.

The exchange, transcribed by The Washington Examiner, is below:

“Let me tell you why. We don’t put pressure on the president because ya’ll love the president. You love the president. You’re very proud to have a black man — first time in the history of the United States of America. If we go after the president too hard, you’re going after us.”

“The Congressional Black Caucus loves the president too. We’re supportive of the president, but we’re getting tired, ya’ll.  We’re getting tired. And so, what we want to do is, we want to give the president every opportunity to show what he can do and what he’s prepared to lead on. We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don’t know what the strategy is. We don’t know why on this trip that he’s in the United States now, he’s not in any black community.  We don’t know that.”

“All I’m saying to you is, we’re politicians. We’re elected officials. We are trying to do the right thing and the best thing. When you let us know it is time to let go, we’ll let go.”

Waters also complained that Obama was not visiting black communities on his Midwestern Bus Tour where he didn’t actually ride the bus from town to town, but rather flew the behemoth in a jet while he rode in Air Force One.
A real “man of the people”.
And consider this from Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Emanuel Cleaver:

If black unemployment had reached current rates he and his colleagues would be marching on the White House. But since Barack Obama is president, they won’t.

“If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. “There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”

Man, if the Mainstream Media hadn’t convinced us that only white people could be racist, I would think that Waters and Cleaver had drifted into the murky depths of the type of racism they both have accused the TEA Party of exhibiting. Only the TEA Party never actually did anything racist.

Thank goodness double standards are the accepted norm in the Liberal community. Otherwise, the ugly accusations of hypocrisy would raise their ugly heads (not to mention racism!)
But it gets even worse!
Prominent Liberal White people like David Brooks of the far left New York Times have finally had enough and found the nerve to criticize Obama, knowing that they have been on the front lines decrying any dissent by those on the right as racism.
Brooks wrote (and I urge you to read the whole post by Brooks – there’s more!):

I’m a sap, a specific kind of sap. I’m an Obama Sap.

When the president said the unemployed couldn’t wait 14 more months for help and we had to do something right away, I believed him. When administration officials called around saying that the possibility of a double-dip recession was horrifyingly real and that it would be irresponsible not to come up with a package that could pass right away, I believed them.

I liked Obama’s payroll tax cut ideas and urged Republicans to play along. But of course I’m a sap. When the president unveiled the second half of his stimulus it became clear that this package has nothing to do with helping people right away or averting a double dip. This is a campaign marker, not a jobs bill.

It recycles ideas that couldn’t get passed even when Democrats controlled Congress. In his remarks Monday the president didn’t try to win Republicans to even some parts of his measures. He repeated the populist cries that fire up liberals but are designed to enrage moderates and conservatives.

He claimed we can afford future Medicare costs if we raise taxes on the rich. He repeated the old half-truth about millionaires not paying as much in taxes as their secretaries. (In reality, the top 10 percent of earners pay nearly 70 percent of all income taxes, according to the I.R.S. People in the richest 1 percent pay 31 percent of their income to the federal government while the average worker pays less than 14 percent, according to the Congressional Budget Office.)

Even the now racist Associated Press has the nerve to check Obama on the “facts” he spews:

“Middle-class families shouldn’t pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires,” Obama said Monday. “That’s pretty straightforward. It’s hard to argue against that.”

The data tell a different story. On average, the wealthiest people in America pay a lot more taxes than the middle class or the poor, according to private and government data. They pay at a higher rate, and as a group, they contribute a much larger share of the overall taxes collected by the federal government.

There may be individual millionaires who pay taxes at rates lower than middle-income workers. In 2009, 1,470 households filed tax returns with incomes above $1 million yet paid no federal income tax, according to the Internal Revenue Service. That, however, was less than 1 percent of the nearly 237,000 returns with incomes above $1 million.

Facts are nasty things when you have to tell the truth. At least for this president.
And so much for the “anointed one” and his commitment to Women’s Lib!
Left Wing Gawker reports that Obama might be Clinically Depressed!

Wouldn’t you be? Barack Obama is at the nadir of his political popularity and effectiveness. He has been maneuvered into an economic corner of 9%-plus unemployment by a relentlessly nihilistic Congress. His achievements—killing bin Laden, saving the auto industry at negligible cost—are written off as flukes. Plus all this 9/11 anniversary stuff! We hear the New York Times is looking into whether it’s all starting to get to him—like, clinically. We’re told by a source inside the Times that the paper is preparing a story arguing that Obama no longer finds joy in the political back-and-forth, has seemed increasingly listless to associates, and is generally exhibiting the litany of signs that late-night cable commercials will tell you add up to depression.

Top female advisers felt left out by a boy’s club in the White House where rampant infighting sabotaged the administration’s economic decisions, according to a controversial new book.

Sidelined and ignored in the West Wing, some women aides reportedly complained to President Obama about their treatment in 2009.

In an excerpt obtained by the Washington Post, a female senior aide is quoted as calling the White House a hostile environment for women.

According to the Post, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn says in the book: ‘This place would be in court for a hostile workplace because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.’

Ouch! Now Dunn has joined the ranks of the TEA Party racists!

But we shouldn’t blame Obama, depressed or not. After all, there was a Tsunami in Japan. And a war in Libya. And an Arab Spring. How could he be expected to fix the economy and be nice to women? (Although doing one or the other would have been at least something.)
But wouldn’t that mean we are also suppose to let George W. Bush off because there was a terrorist attack in New York. And D.C. And Pennsylvania. And a hurricane in New Orleans. And a rash of hurricanes in Florida.
Naw, of course not!
At least Obama didn’t have Barney Frank pushing toxic loans on Fannie and Freddie.
Oh, wait. Yes he does. Only now the Frankster is doing it with taxpayer bailouts and Quantitative Easing instead of Wall Street hocus-pocus that bilked the wealthy, who Obama bailed out and now wants to tax the taxpayer’s money he used to bail out the banks and Wall Street. Wouldn’t it have been better to not give the Wall Street Fat Cats the money in the first place? Duh?
But if the criteria for being racist is simply disagreeing with President Obama, I guess we are all racists now.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
