If you doubted that President Obama would play the race card in his game to win re-election, all you had to do was hear what he said last night at the Congressional Black Caucus dinner.
An answer to a growing concern in the black community that he is ignoring them, Obama said, “Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complainin’. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’. We are going to press on. We have work to do.”
According to Fox News, Obama “acknowledged blacks have suffered mightily because of the recession, and are frustrated that the downturn is taking so long to reverse. ‘So many people are still hurting. so many people are barely hanging on. And so many people in this city are fighting us every step of the way,’ he said.”
It sounds desperate and it is certainly divisive. Since when did Americans become the enemy of their fellow Americans?
