Velma Hart told tales out of school. Uh oh!!!
I learned something from President Obama’s town hall on CNBC this week. The Democrats are in trouble!!!!! Organizing for America won’t be able to email their way out of this one. Velma Hart spoke up and said what a lot of people are afraid to say. The words “I’m exhausted of defending you,” wasn’t a made up statement. They are words that are spoken in silence by many of Obama’s supporters. The last 2 years have been a doozy. How did we go from “Hope and Change” to this?
On Tuesday, Andre Egleshon sat in for Reverend Al Sharpton on his radio show. Apparently Egleshon was upset with Hart for speaking her mind. He blasted her for putting Obama on the spot. Every time he stands in for Sharpton he spends his time praising Obama. Egleshon must be trying to get a job in the Obama Administration. Too bad for him - Obama has already hit his black quota for new hires. I’m sick of black folks dissing other blacks because they aren’t kissing black politicians behinds. Black folks are not monolithic and we should be able to speak our minds. Hart voted for Obama so she has no interest in seeing him fail (how ignorant would that be if she did??). Every other black is afraid to say something for fear of losing their “Black Card.” Black folks have rested on Symbolism and have lowered expectations for our politicians. Instead of “Real Change” blacks are hoping that they can get the pot hole in the street filled. You question black folks on Obama Administration policies and all they can tell you is how good 1st Lady Michelle Obama looked on TV. Really??
Every other race and gender is knocking on Obama’s door. Anytime black folks try to speak to Obama they get dirty looks from other blacks. It seems blacks have to suffer in silence in order to keep the symbolism going. I know that Obama is the head of the American Empire so he has to look out for everyone. I get it!! I wish black folks would stop saying that to calm the waters. No one is telling the Latinos, Gays and Jews to stop pressing Obama. People look out for their self-interests in politics. That’s how the game is played (fortunately and unfortunately). Everyone else is playing “Chess” while black folks are playing “Tunk.” The Democrats are going to be in a world of hurt this November. The White House gambled on making the economy a quaternary priority and now they are paying for it. You have some Democrats that won’t even get near Obama in fear of losing their elections. Republicans ran from President Bush in his last years!! Wow! The Democrats are starting early!! Obama’s opposition is fired up and ready to take him on. His support staff never saw this backlash coming. But then again they don’t have experience dealing with a black man that’s president. I guess they figured if they run from black folks and call out Glenn Beck they will be okay.
The Democrats should use Velma Hart as a voting barometer for this November. The new voters that became Democrats weren’t doing it to be Democrats. They wanted to be Obamacrats. A lot of loser Democrats rode into office on Obama’s coat tails in 2008. If they were on their own, they would have never made it past the primary. So imagine if voters are feeling “Some Kinda Way” about Obama now….well you can figure out what will happen in November.
