Black America - What if
Obama were white?

Townhall, by Larry Elder

Original Article

Posted By:Hooverdog, 10/4/2012 2:59:30 PM

What if President Obama were white? Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said last year, "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." The problem to which Cleaver refers is black unemployment. At the beginning of the Obama administration, 12.7 percent of black adults seeking work were unemployed. Black unemployment is now 14.1 percent. Black teenage unemployment at the beginning of the Obama administration was 35.2 percent. Black teenage unemployment is now 37.9 percent.

If he were white, he certainly would not be POTUS.
Likely, he would not have been able to attend Columbia or Harvard, either.
Probably, he would be a choom-smoking beach bum in Hawaii.

Agreed with 1# if he claimed his white side more then no he wouldn't be President. Too many stupid ignorant and "feeling" members of the 60's culture "revolution" felt this was the way to make amends for the first 100 plus years of civil right violations by electing someone due to the color of the skin. Because they sure as hell didn't take into consideration his lack of character, lack of morals and lack of American background. Quit playing the race card Cleaver. The sympathy vote doesn't work when the content of character is lacking and in all honesty the color of his skin only matters to people like you and him.

White.. Black.. Schmack! He's an Arab.. Put on us by the stupid, ill-informed Media and Saudi Arabia!!
It was when they saw us recognizing that oil is NOT a nonrenewable resource.. that we have even more than they do, lying under this huge continent.. that they decided to foster, nurture, and subsidize Barry Soetoro.

You mean, if he looked more like his mother.

And Smiley is an imbecile. good grief.

And S. Jackson, if everyone only voted for the person who looks like them, well, we'd have a white POTUS, and tight now, probably male.

I wish we could outlaw stupidity, send it into exile.

I wouldn't go there, except to point out that he's gotten a pass his entire life. Not only would he not be president, he's not smart enough to be Eugene Robinson, Chares Blow or Toure, and that's a pretty low standard by itself.

He is half white.

In any event, I dislike his white half as much as his black half, and not the skin color. I despise his politics, his ideology, and his incompetence.

It is not just Markos of Daily Kos infamy claiming the Left has won the culture war. The Week´s Matt Lewis is saying the same. Yeah, they are both kinda trolling. So ´scuse me while I take the bait. Let´s start with the biggie: same-sex marriage. Yes, polls show gay marriage is breaking out all over, but when put to a vote same-sex marriage has lost (even in California) much more often than not. Furthermore, gay marriage is not being legalized through popular opinion or demand, it is being legalized through activist judges. There is no question that attitudes have

Is Texas Gov. Rick Perry “sitting pretty” for 2016 as one journalist put it, or is another presidential run likely to be a flop, a campaign that barely gets off the ground? At the Conservative Political Action Conference gathering last month, Perry showed that he can still deliver a stem-winder. And at a Fort Hood news conference after the shooting, he showed the maturity and calm that voters will look for in a presidential contender: “There aren’t any easy answers to what occurred here, and there’s no way to wish away the suffering that’s occurring. Right now today, millions of

Are there no heroes left in America anymore? President Obama turns out to be an incompetent fraud who has never actually read the U.S. Constitution. Edward Snowden tucked tail and fled to Siberia. Washington Nationals star Ryan Zimmerman can no longer be relied upon to scoop up a crazy bouncer just inside third base line, pirouette and throw like a laser into first baseman Adam LaRoche’s mitt. And now, we learn, the Rev. Al Sharpton has been working for The Man all along. No matter how much he insists that he was just one fat cat keeping tabs on all

HOUSTON – Deputies have arrested and charged a Spring couple accused of keeping a 5-year-old boy malnourished inside the stairway closet of their home. Investigators said the child was found in his diaper in the small closet by his 16-year -old brother at 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Then the teen confronted his father Bradley Bleimeyer. The teen and father got into a fist fight and officers were called to the house located in the 21500 block of Castlemont. By the time officers arrived, they said the victim’s stepmother Tammi Bleimeyer and biological father took off with the little boy. On Friday,

300,000-member union drops bombshell
Obamacare report
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall    Original Article
Posted By: Hooverdog- 3/10/2014 8:38:27 AM     Post Reply
The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston Mayor Annise Parker married her long-time partner, Kathy Hubbard, in a California wedding Thursday. Eyewitness News was the only Houston television station in Palm Springs for the wedding, and Mayor Parker told us shortly after she tied the knot that her wedding was "lovely." "We had a beautiful day," Parker told us. The city of Houston says Parker and Hubbard were married before a small group of people Thursday on the 23rd anniversary of their relationship. Parker´s mother and Hubbard´s sister were on hand for the exchange of vows, which were presided over by the Reverend

The Pasadena Star news reports that a San Diego woman has called for the Rose Parade to be boycotted because it will feature a gay wedding atop a float. The float, sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), is titled, “Love is the Best Protection.” The parade will be watched by an estimated 68 million people around the world. San Diegan Karen Grube, who said her protest is not out of her religious convictions, and says she is opposed to having any wedding featured in the parade, has requested that corporate sponsors drop their funding of the parade if the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
