Maxine Waters: Blacks Are Getting Tired of Making Excuses For Obama

Now, I'm lost: According to Ed Schultz, "reminding" the public that the president is black (did they not realize?) is racist.

So Maxine Waters, by focusing laser-like on the black president's problems with black voters, must be extremely racist.

She's actually making excuses for herself. The crowd wants her to pressure the president to do something for the black community (wouldn't doing something for the American economy generally do something for the black community?), and her excuse is that she hasn't gone after him because "Ya'll love him" (y'all -- what a giveaway, racist) too much.

Video at the link (which should be watched, because the crowd here is "fired up, ready to go!" in ways Obama would not like), but here is some print:

During a sometimes-raucous session of what's being called the "For the People" Jobs Initiative tour, a key member of the Congressional Black Caucus told an audience in Detroit Tuesday that the CBC doesn't put pressure on President Obama because he is loved by black voters. But at the same time, Rep. Maxine Waters said, members of the CBC are becoming increasingly tired and frustrated by Obama's performance on the issue of jobs. Even as she expressed support for the president, Waters virtually invited the crowd to "unleash us" to pressure Obama for action.

...

As she discussed her dilemma -- frustrated with the president but hesitant to criticize him lest black supporters turn on her -- Waters asked the crowd for its permission to have a "conversation" with the president. "When you tell us it's alright and you unleash us and you tell us you're ready for us to have this conversation, we're ready to have the conversation," she said. Some members of the crowd immediately voiced their approval.

"All I'm saying to you is, we're politicians," Waters continued. "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."

"Let go!" some in the audience yelled.

Well.

He did say he would unite us.

Check.

Drudge twists the knife by running this publicity picture from Obama, featuring an all-white group of kids, precisely reinforcing the Congressional Black Caucus' complaint that not a single event in the Magical Misery Tour is planned in a black neighborhood.

I think I need to do a top ten "Almost as White as" list.
