Black Chamber Of Commerce Head: I Can't Believe I Voted For Obama
— Ace

As part of my continuing campaign to prove I Know What Black People Think,* I'll link this interesting interview on Laura Ingraham.

"Meat so red," Allah says.

One thing Ingraham says is that blacks have generally hung together on Obama. Based on this and that Blogging Heads I linked, I'm thinking that it's more they've outwardly hung with Obama, while privately starting to say, "Hey, this guy's kind of, uh, what's the word? Bad."

Yes, yay team and all, but this guy is a failure.


* Oh, and if Baldilocks comes in to tell me differently, I'll just ignore her, because one of the benefits of Knowing What Black People Think, as I obviously so do, is that I don't have to listen when black people tell me what black people think, since I already know. To listen would just be condescending.

So what you're doing is using the logic of liberals knowing what conservatives think.

Um...I already know what black people think. Ed Shultz had a special called the Black Agenda. I guess it's based on his experience living all those years in Fargo, ND.

6 He just always thought that, 'This is mine. I'm head of the Black Chamber of Commerce. I'm black.' ... And then, out of nowhere, came 'Hey, I'm Barack Obama." And he said, 'Oh damn, where did you come from? I'm black. I'm entitled. There's a Marxist man stealing my profits!"

8 The real race hustlers, Jackson, Sharpton, and their ilk, will say that Obama isn't really black before they'll admit he is black and a complete failure.  Oh, and that he never really had a chance because racists like Pelosi and Reid were undercutting him by, um, giving him everything he wanted.  Or something.  All I know is that it's my fault.

Ed Schulz should have a special on MSNBC called "The Shithead's Agenda".

He could write it, edit it, act it out.  It would be autobiographical.  Maybe with Howard Dean as a supporting player, and a cameo by Lawrence O'Donnell.

And what Black Americans think? Suprisingly, they are individuals.  Many voted for Barack out of a sense of racial identity, but there are a lot of Americans of African ancestry having "second thoughts".  Just my opinion from actually, you know, interacting with non-white Americans.

16 The far left has spent almost 100 years turning the blacks back into slaves. Obama's favorite book, Native Son, by Richard Wright who himself was a south side black explains in perfect detail how the communists wanted to use the blacks in the united states to change our govt. The cause is communist and they have been key parts of the process to bring on marxism forever. They have been steeped in it and black theology was even created to force it all home. I doubt that their minds can be changed away from the communist plan in less than 4 generations, especially with their marriage and abortion statistics.

24 96% voted for him in 2008. I seriously doubt this number will drop to under 50% (or 80%); if polls start showing that then he will lose epically. It could be unprecedented.
 
A good friend of mine voted for him in IL and had buyers remorse by mid 2009.

Barack is a failure and a screw-up as the President because of his philosphy, his political ideas.  The color of his skin contributed to this because of all the silly AA things that happened along the way, and the way he purposedly self-indoctrinated himself and his identity politics, of which a lot of was from his white mother. But the AA stuff was pretty incidental. He's a grotesque egotist with a narcissistic fixation that is almost staggeringly crippling in its scope.

But the 2008 election had frankly little to do with race, despite all the huzzahs from the media piss-boys regarding the historical nature of it all..  If Barack Obama had never lived, Hilary! would have won in 2008 (and carried +95% of the African-American vote, too)  and we would have a lot of the same garbage going on, because Hilary! too was a student of  Alinsky, and a crypto-Marxist. It would have been historical that a woman such as Hilary! would have been elected too, and we all would have had to make nice as she too screwed up the economy. Barack and Hilary! are symptoms of a political and cultural sickness that has overtaken this country, and until that sickness gets cured, we will still be vulnerable to these kinds of shitheads.  It will always be something historical with these guys, just historically bad.

39 Actually there is nothing in Obama's makeup which speaks to Blacks from an American perspective. He was raised by white people, is half white, and his black ancestors were not slaves. It's why Obama had to go to Chicago and attend trinity church and learn to be Black. I'm waiting on blacks to make the connection that except for some darkening of his skin Obama isn't really black to begin with.

Posted by: Rocks at April 30, 2011 10:57 AM (th0op)

40 >>> He is delusional. He thinks the repub will get 30% of the black vote. HA. I'm guessing Obama will get above the historic average for Dems, which I think is like 88%, and get 90% or so. However, I think there will be a drop-off in black voting. Partly due to lack of enthusiasm, but partly due to the fact they don't want to vote for him, so they'll do a compromise non-vote: Okay, I'm not going to vote against you, but I'm also not going to vote for you; let other people decide it. 2008 was, I think, pretty obviously Obama's high-water mark of support. Only if the economy rebounded nicely and he brought in less-ideological voters who were basically just endorsing the economy could he have exceeded that. That will almost certainly not be the case, barring a sudden black swan V shaped recovery. So the question is: How much of a drop-off in liberal groups' intensity? A little bit, and he can weather the storm. A little more than a little, and he's in trouble. A little more than that, and he's done.

I think this is more of a cry by Alford for some attention from President Petey. He pretty much said that he disagreed with Petey on about every issue, but voted for him anyway.

All it's going to take from Petey to smooth this guy's ruffled feathers is a private phone call...or a waiver for his business on healthcare.

Sorry...not impressed

Posted by: beedubya at April 30, 2011 11:01 AM (AnTyA)

43 Here's a quote from an article: The levels of participation by black, Hispanic and Asian eligible voters all increased from 2004 to 2008, reducing the voter participation gap between themselves and white eligible voters. This was particularly true for black eligible voters. Their voter turnout rate increased 4.9 percentage points, from 60.3% in 2004 to 65.3% in 2008, nearly matching the voter turnout rate of white eligible voters (66.1%). For Hispanics, participation levels also increased, with the voter turnout rate rising 2.7 percentage points, from 47.2% in 2004 to 49.9% in 2008. Among Asians, voter participation rates increased from 44.6% in 2004 to 47.0% in 2008. Meanwhile, among white eligible voters, the voter turnout rate fell slightly, from 67.2% in 2004 to 66.1% in 2008. ... I'm thinking black participation will fall back to average due to the compromise non-vote effect. I expect the other minority groups whose surge in participation can be partly attributed to a non-white candidate will also fall back to historic averages, except maybe Hispanics, who I think will tend to vote as if it's a good Bush-like year, that is, voting 42% or so for the GOP.

Well said. And I like "media piss-boys," and will claim it as my own.

Your point also demolishes the "RACIST!" charge that is becoming tedious and increasingly worthless. Sure, there were some people who voted for McCain and against Obama simply because of skin color (ignoring the 95% black vote for Obama, because, as we all know, they can't be racist), but all of the people I have spoken with voted against Obama (pbuh) because they knew he was going to suck and his policies scared them.

He didn't just admit he voted for Obama just because he was black; he *confessed* it with a rueful laugh. What did you think he was going to say? He was being candid and not bullshitting you. He could have dressed it up in a non-racial "I thought he'd bring the country together" but he candidly confessed voting for him just on race. People do dumb or less-than-ideal things all the time. That's not remarkable. It's worthy of remark when they admit to it, and implicitly are telling you "Once burned, twice shy."

I had thought it was typically 93% and in 2008 he got 96%.

He will still get above 90% of the black vote, but more than likely the turnout will be lower in 2012.

There is a big difference between bill and hillary. Hillary is a raging leftist. So much so that when she was first lady they put a muzzle on her. Hillary  ran to the left of Obama in the primaries on several issues. The individual mandate on health care for instance, Hillary was for  and Obama lied saying he was against it. She is more Hawkish than Obama but hawkishness is losing it's luster for me these days with the endless wars.

74 I think that President Petey is a reference to the Peter Principle.

"in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence", meaning that employees tend to be promoted until they reach a position at which they cannot work competently."

To be fair to Obama, he has done this in record time, and has probably exceeded his level of competency by at least several orders of magnitude.

It is sort of like giving the intern network administrator privileges and then asking him to fix a DOS attack.

That certainly happened with disaffected conservatives.
There will be less participation and your 90% est. seems right but I don't understand why minorities and lowest income brackets identify with him.

That will almost certainly not be the case, barring a sudden black swan V shaped recovery.

Markets are in a commodities speculation bubble that will last several years so it is mathematically impossible at this point for that to happen. Inflation is already outpacing income gains for +70% of Americans.

So the question is: How much of a drop-off in liberal groups' intensity? A little bit, and he can weather the storm. A little more than a little, and he's in trouble. A little more than that, and he's done.

The Prosser election is the bellwether here. If they couldn't get that done in one of the bluest states it's not happening nationally.

Posted by: beedubya at April 30, 2011 11:16 AM (AnTyA)

80 I was hopeful that Hispanics would not vote for Obama in the numbers they did in the last election but was wrong. I asked a few that I know and they told me they thought he was a better bet for amnesty and basically they decided to vote for whatever candidate would get them drivers licenses, etc. After LaRaza came out and essentially made it a "brown/black versus white vote" I knew it would be Obama in the White House. The only hope I have now is that more republicans will vote instead of staying home and the independent whites are now over the "historic" aspects of voting for a black man. I also believe that many Clinton dems will not vote for Obama as the voting in the 2010 election showed me that many blue dog dems voted republican. Many blue dog dems lost their seats last year and I hope that is a good sign for us. It all IMO depends on the candidate the republicans put up against Obama. I hope we choose wisely. Right now I don't see a candidate who has said declared that has the balls to take it to Obama.

Point is men and women like Alford are ripe for the picking.

As Michael Corleone would say, "We got people in the newspaper business, right? I think they'd like a story like this."

The GOP is the business/entrepreneur-friendly party, right? I think we can expand our party's membership by exploiting Obama's anti-business policies as it effects Alford's people.

Bush never really got 42% of the Hispanic vote- in 2004 there was an exit poll that said he did, but its been debunked.  The reality was high 30s.  Rove keeps using that bogus 42% figure tho, to try and disguise the fact that his open borders Hispandering strategy was a total failure.

It's a reference from the movie American Pie II where the Jason Biggs character is at band camp and he is mistaken for the mentally challenged trombonist Petey, who is supposed to be a savant with the trombone.

The Biggs character doesn't know how to play the trombone, but gets up and plays for the crowd, who eats it up, anyway.

I don't think white voter turnout is going to be much higher than it was in 20084 or 2008, but I agree with ace that minority turnout will probably decrease a bit.

With the growth in the minority population though it probably won't mean that much. You can win a lower percentage from a larger voter group and end up with the same net vote difference.

The only reason to vote for McCain was to prevent Obama from being elected, and then hope McCain turned out to be better than we knew he would be.  How could anyone expect conservatives to turn out under those conditions?

They both might try but the Clintons are subconsciously restricted by the fact that they are actual Americans who were raised in American culture.  There are many mores and taboos that the Clintons wouldn't even think of violating (not because they don't want to, but just because the thought would almost never occur to an actual American).  But Barky had no such attachment to American culture.  He was raised as an Indonesian.  He holds our culture in nothing but contempt.

Shrillary never would have gotten national socialized health care through.  Part os this is because Shrillary would never have the uniform and solid backing of the media (because of skin color) but also that Shrillary would have thought like every other American did (several times) during the health care fiasco ... that "this bill is dead!" - as Rahm was advising after the Scott Brown election.

The biggest problem with the Indonesian was that we got a foreigner's view of the American Presidency, and a foreign view that is looking to exact revenge on our nation (mostly out of jealousy).  This would not have happened under any actual American.  The Clintons would love to be able to detach themselves from American culture like that, but they just couldn't.  Of course, now that the taboos have been broken and the traditions destroyed ... formerly foreign ways of government operations are now here in the US to stay, which is why I had always warned that the damage being done was permanent.

We can grow out of this debt, still.  It's a matter of our choice.  We can default on it, if we needed to.  The damage to the operations and traditions of our governmental processes is much, much worse.  This guy admits to having bribed 2 primary candidates with federal jobs (from a federal position - the highest) in order to carry out purely political operations from the Executive branch ... and it is now, evidently, perfectly legal and acceptable.  There are many, many other such examples which have served to seriously distort and warp what America actually is.

There are a lot of examples of the Obama Regime wiping its ass with the Constitution, but as Soona said, a lot of that can be reset with a change in the Executive.  I think a lot of people have been scared by just how lawless the Obama Regime has been at times, and what else they can come up with before he gets the boot in 2012. Other Presidents have also tempted the bounds of lawlessness.  The career of LBJ is the best example that I can remember - much worse than Nixon.

The title is not a good one as it sounds like you are settling for less than but it tells the truth about why women let things get in the way of marrying for the right reasons. The feminist movement may have solved some problems for women but it created many more that I bet they were not ready for as they age.

217 The one thing I can always respect is someone who can admit that he did a dumb thing for a dumb reason. And not only commit to not doing that dumb thing again but do whatever he can to correct the fallout.

In Mr. Alford's position it can't be easy to put forth an unpopular opinion among your core constituents and he seems genuinely committed to doing so. Furthermore anyone who unashamedly admits that he loves this country, not once but several times, gets a second chance with me.

One thing Ingraham says is that blacks have generally hung together on Obama. Based on this and that Blogging Heads I linked, I'm thinking that it's more they've outwardly hung with Obama, while privately starting to say, "Hey, this guy's kind of, uh, what's the word? Bad."

Ingraham:  They said you was hung.

Sheriff Bart:  And they was right!

Technically, we have a choice. But as we've often talked about on the DOOM thread, there's absolutely NO political will to make the necessary cuts that will avoid default. Wisconsin would look like a 4 year olds fairy princess tea party if the necessary cuts were made. Fortunately / unfortunately, that'll never happen until the math forces the changes.

223 The idea of Allen West running for President has begun to edge out locking eyes with Mark Harmon in a hotel bar as my favorite drive-time fantasy. It goes a little like this … Me: Allen West for President!
Lefty Lucy: Arrggh. How can you support THAT man???
Me: Racist! This is straight up racism. This is all about hating on the black man.
Lefty Lucy: He hates poor people. He wants old people to die. He supports WAR!
Me: I don’t think I can be friends with a racist.
Lefty Lucy: Bu-bu-but … I voted for Obama.
Me: Obama’s not *really* black. His mother was white. He was raised in “white” home by white grandparents. You’re a racist if you criticize Allen West.

The same people who saw Obama's election as a proxy of their own advancement in society will see his replacement as a slap in the face.

This is why the GOP really isn't interested in beating Obama in 2012 and turning him into a one term president. They are afraid of everything from energizing every black to forever vote against "the party of racism", to rioting in the streets.

The only way for the GOP to win is for Obama to lose -- by keeping unemployment, gas prices and inflation high right up to election day.

I meant there's a choice in how to handle an unserviceable debt load.  There's monetization and default.  Monetization destroys the usability of the currency (domestically, as well as a trade or reserve currency) but allows present debt to be erased as services are cut by pricing.  Default saves the usability of the currency at the expense of being able to borrow and/or import in the near term.  But, since the dollar is world trade and reserve currency, those uses are also saved, by necessity and each nation's own interest.  Default would seriously rearrange world financial postures, in a moment.

Default takes serious political will and courage.  Monetization is enticing because, like cocaine, it gives an initial high, though the economy builds a tolerance to printed money pretty quickly and steeply.

And being "of the elders" I would still not hesitate to put myself in harm's way to preserve that freedom.  I've thought about where I would go also, but there's just no place like the USA....even now.  That's why all of this has made me so angry and has brought me to tears thinking that 52% of my fellow countrymen would elect this POS.  Especially when all the information was there prior to the election on what Petey wanted to do.

The trouble is, it's not a matter of going out into the streets and seizing back the government. I wish it was. I REALLY wish it was.

Instead we're seeing that freedom taken away legislatively piece by piece. Economically, piece by piece. There's no harm's way to put ourselves in front of which is so maddening. There's no massive outcry to stop this. Not the type of outcry that's going to see the needed changes take place NOW. There's no political will to EVER make any of the changes that need to be made to stop the DOOM.

Government encroachment into everyone's lives is becoming truly scary. I'm saying that and I'm a FREAKING Canadian. They have signs on the highway telling us to take a break if we're tired!! Even when I was a stupid liberal, anti-American Canadian teenager, I never in my life FEARED the American government. Not like I do now. And what pisses me off too is there's no fight to go to.

It makes me so angry too...

296 This mission in Libya is looking more like an indirect assassination attempt by Obama.

Posted by: Soothsayer at April 30, 2011 07:05 PM (2O5Hd)

Come on.  NATO just took out the Libyan Special Olympics team.  This mission is far reaching and comprehensive.

Personally. I'd love to see Q'Daffy taken out - slowly and painfully - but Hussein and the kids in Europe are going to screw this all up, royally.  We should have attacked Libya the day Al-Megrahi was let free and landed in Tripoli (and our Hussein should have been impeached and tossed out for being complicit in that, giving aid and comfort to the enemy) ... but we didn't.  This "operation" now is nothing but a bad joke and is sure to end in disaster, no matter which way it goes on the ground.

297 John Roberts on Fox needs me to kick him in the nuts. 

Twice today, he's asked Fox meteorologist, Rick Reichmuth, "When people heard the tornado sirens going off, why didn't they leave?"

I can't even comprehend the stupid in that question. Even Rick looked stunned.  For one thing, imagine thousands of people jumping in their vehicles and heading..............where? 

John Roberts and Shep Smith....bringing the stupid and tasteless to Fox.  Thanks.

299 Has anyone wondered where Obama got his accent? He was raised by white and Indonesian people. I think he's putting it on. It's probably been so long that it stuck. One of the vids of him as the president of the law review showed that he had the same accent and extremely annoying cadence.

They don't like Qudaffy, nobody does. So the obvious solution is to kill his grandkids. If his son is 29 those kids had to be youngsters.

Obama should just announce a new mission, we are going to kill Daffy, his kids and their kids. Se how that flies.

The related problem is that the "feds" are exerting legislative or regulatory authority over such a vast number of disparate activities that we can't keep track of them all and can't get coordinated enough react to the most egregious acts.
