Obama did nothing for his black voters his first 4 years, as a matter of fact black unemployment went up for them.
Leverage what? Unemployment for blacks went up under Obama. Economic conditions worsened. Race relations worsened. Are they looking for more of the same? Are they looking for more handouts? What?
what do you say when the only reason he was voted in was because he was black????
Romney was right. When your message is lower taxes, why would people who pay no taxes vote for you? When your message is smaller government, why would people who want a bigger nanny state vote for you? When your message is more jobs, why would people who are getting along just fine without having to work vote for you?
Hopefully, all American identity groups can vote not on the basis of what works just for them, but what works for the entire country.
Romney's personal finances have taken advantage of an electorate including blacks that do not vote for their own best interests. The wealthy have continued underregulated finacial opportunities. They include offshore investments, offshore holding accounts, nonwage tax advantages and continue to believe this will not change because congress will not stop them from conducting business by looking for tax irregularities and tax opportunism. It appears that the wealthy leapfrog ahead of blacks or any other group when political capital is executed by our voting process.
The Republicans have created a bubble for themselves. They listen to their own news, talk shows and only trust their own polls. During the debates all the candidates got the same facts wrong listening to the same sources. If Republicans want to be relative they need to move back to reality by getting the main stream view of the world. The main stream media isn’t all left wing liars. They are really trying to get the story right instead of slanting it to satisfy their readers or listeners. The main stream doesn’t have facts designed by the highest bidder. If Republicans don’t like what they hear do something about it instead of finding an information source that tells them what they want to hear. If the main stream said we what government to work for us don’t shut government down. Work for the people instead of the few people that bought your election.
In 2008, ppl voted for Obama to show they were not racist ... In 2012, ppl voted for Obama and proved they were ... A four year record like that does not get re-elected.
theagonybho - Obama did nothing for his black voters his first 4 years, as a matter of fact black unemployment went up for them. -------------------- Black voters also realized it was due to Republican obstructionism in congress on every bill Obama and the Democrats proposed to help with jobs and the economy. Are you?
What do they expect Obama to do? Create programs only for African Americans. Obama isn't that stupid. Oh , and falcon...still blaming the guy who had you job before you whenever you screw up?
