CNN's Acosta to Romney: 'If You Somehow
Win,' How Would You 'Assure Blacks
You'd Be Their President Also?'

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 9/26/2012 12:32:52 AM

CNN's Jim Acosta on Tuesday's Situation Room asked what many will think was a truly offensive question. "If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would be their president also?" (video follows with transcript and commentary): JIM ACOSTA, CNN: African-Americans have a tremendous sense of pride that there is the first African-American president in the White House. If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would be their president also?

Comments:
Do you think the President, who lauds the campaign group "Blacks for Obama", would get asked a such a question about whites?

Unlike our current POTUS, the President of the United States has historically been and should always be the President to all the country's citizens. Our current Resident is not and has proved it time and again when he only pays attention to those who agree with his ideology. Anyone else to him is persona non grata.

Blacks should be proud of the unemployment rate in the black community. Proud to have record numbers of single mothers, highest foodstamp participation ever, most blacks in prison than before the first black president.

Tell me again, what are the best three things Obama has done for the Black Community since he got into office?

You look like you could be 'my son'. Or not.
I intend to have guys in berets at the polls, wielding nightsticks and screaming racial epithets. So watch out. Be one of 'my people' , my colour. Or just be a dapper dresser.

How was that for primetime, lamestream? /s/

Here is the trap they think they can catch Romney with.

"If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, would you then chain him, like JoeBiteMe says? And, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would not beat and chain them, also?"

The real worry is that Romney is promising to deliver opportunity. Many Americans of ALL ethnicities are desperate for opportunity. CNN is worried that this is taking votes away from 0, so they are setting out IEDs hoping to blow Romney out of the race with a big bang. RACE CARD!

The problem with using the RACE CARD, is that if it does not work, there is noting else let.

Obama is spending billions on black causes we just don't see. I mean HUD has gone from being in the rental business and into the home loan business with tons of bailouts to stop foreclosures.
Romney,if elected is going to have to grapple with the government intrusion into the home loan business.Fannie/Freddie are at least trying to clean up their act,to the chagrin of the left.

We're seeing tougher standards for average people who should qualify for a loan but are getting turned down.On the other side,we're seeing reformulations in credit scores for the underachievers in our life (and wallets).

This double standard in home loans has the goal of diversity in every neighborhood.

The black community in Kansas City has the highest crime rates, the worst education/graduation rates, the highest unemployment rates, the highest dependency on the federal welfare plantation, and the highest rates of illegitimate births. Obama has done nothing to change these facts. If Romney is elected, it will be without a single black vote and he will get nothing but contempt and hate from the black community. Romney owes the black community nothing. They have made their bed in the dependency camp. They are quite frankly part of the problem of this country in terms of the social problems and the entitlement spending leading us to the fiscal cliff. If the black community wants to be part of the solution, then they can join reform minded citizens who want to put an end to the Obama nonsense.

After all of the divisive race baiting from the Obamunists, I would expect that 95% of blacks would never accept Romney, and in fairness, I have to say I could never accept Obama after the way he has stoked hatred against european-americans throughout his lifetime. The fact that he stands by Eric Holder; his relationships with Rev. Wright, his father, Frank Davis, and throwing his grandmother under the bus as a "typical white person". Who knows how long the damage will last, thanks to all the people who voted for him because of his skin color.

San Jose, Calif. — A usually busy DMV office in San Jose was closed Friday after a motorist waiting to take a driver´s test crashed her car into the building and caused a gas leak. The driver declined to give her name but told KTVU she was nervous about taking the driver´s license tests because this would have been her third try. Around noon the line started to move but she said she hit the accelerator instead of the brake and rammed a motorcycle rider in front of her.

Obama on undocumented Irish:
Our immigration system is broken
Irish Examiner, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 3/16/2014 12:05:16 AM     Post Reply
President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

These are the 634 runways where the missing Malaysia Airlines plane could have landed after a potential hijacking. Today Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said investigators believe flight MH370´s disappearance is the result of ´deliberate action´ by someone on the plane.

President Barack Obama held a Spanish language town hall at the Newseum last week in which he was interviewed by reporters from some of the largest Spanish media outlets in the world. During the interview, he was asked a question from a man who wanted to buy Obamacare for a family of three but couldn’t afford it. (Snip) Obama couldn’t settle on a single answer to the question, so he instead suggested that the man should just sign up for Medicaid, blamed Texas for affordable insurance not being available, and concluded by saying the man should cancel his telephone service

Why discredited ‘scandals’

On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

For much of his time in office, President Obama has been accused by a mix of conservative hawks and liberal interventionists of overseeing a dangerous retreat from the world at a time when American influence is needed most. The once-hopeful Arab Spring has staggered into civil war and military coup. China is stepping up territorial claims in the waters off East Asia. Longtime allies in Europe and in the Persian Gulf are worried by the inconsistency of a president who came to office promising the end of the United States’ post-Sept. 11 wars.

By age 8, he’d had two step-dads; his brothers and sisters had more or fewer based on birth order. Each child also had different numbers of siblings, depending on whether their own dads fathered other children.

America´s ruling class has been experiencing more pushback than usual lately. It just might be a harbinger of things to come. First, in response to widespread protests last week, the Department of Homeland Security canceled plans to build a nationwide license plate database. Many local police departments already use license-plate readers that track every car as it passes traffic signals or pole-mounted cameras. Specially equipped police cars even track cars parked on the street or even in driveways. The DHS put out a bid request for a system that would have gone national, letting the federal government track millions of

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.
