Things must be really bad in Democrat-land. The latest national polls are citing Hillary Clinton just 2 points ahead of the worst, most divisive presidential candidates the GOP has run in maybe their entire history. Mrs. Clinton is so unlikeable that even Oprah Winfrey gave the least-inspiring endorsement of a candidate I’ve heard since “At least he’s not Hillary”. The wealthy TV magnate basically admitted that no one really likes Hillary but “You ain’t gotta like her. She ain’t comin’ over for dinner.”
Singer/songwriter Pharrell recently begged women to vote for Hillary with the inspiring argument of “Has she been dishonest about things? Sure. Have you?”
Yikes. Not exactly a passionate defense.
Now President Obama is adding his unsure voice to the underwhelming, light tide of tepid endorsements of Hillary Clinton. But its actually worse than that. Mr. Obama doesn’t just remind Democrat voters that Hillary isn’t well liked –
I know that a lot of people in the barbershops and the beauty salons and in the neighborhoods who are saying to themselves, ‘Well, you know, we love Barack. We especially love Michelle. And so it was exciting and now we’re not excited as much.’
– he’s actually resorting to begging (or ordering) us black people to vote for a rich white woman who is as known for her still husband’s ejaculatory geography as she is for being a former Secretary of State. Not endorsing…begging.
You know what? I need everybody to understand that everything we’ve done is dependent on me being able to pass the baton to somebody who believes in the same things that I believe in. So if you really care about my presidency and what we’ve accomplished, then you are going to go and vote.
And if you don’t know where to vote, go to www.iwillvote.com.If you’ve already voted, but your mama hasn’t voted, your cousin hasn’t voted, your nephew hasn’t voted, I need you to call them and say that the President and Michelle personally asked you to vote. It’s not that hard. And I know it’s not that hard because we’ve done it before.
But if we let this thing slip and I’ve got a situation where my last two months in office are preparing for a transition to Donald Trump, whose staff people have said that their primary agenda is, to have him, in the first couple of weeks, sit in the Oval Office and reverse every single thing that we’ve done. …
I understand the desperation. The wife of the “first black president” is so disliked she’s running neck and neck with the worst “Republican” ever. She should be running away with this. Democrats need to gin up that wave of excitement that swept our first black president into office.
The most disturbing aspect of this pathetic pleading is that Obama is asking us to vote for a legacy that has only left our community more unemployed and frustrated than at any time since the Civil Rights era. The unemployment rate in black America has plummeted since Obama took office. Conservative estimates are at about 10% (already much higher than our white counterparts) but some posit that actual number (free from government math) may be as high 22%.
Black Americans in 2016 feel disenfranchised and ignored. The Black Lives Matter movement has insisted this is a glaring reality of modern American life. They assert that the black community is currently experiencing an unprecedented period of post-Civil Rights era oppression. In Dallas five police officers were shot and killed as a direct result of said frustrations. This all happened under a black president.
Despite a behemoth, historic healthcare bill supposedly designed to make healthcare more affordable, insurance and health costs are more expensive than ever.
This happened under a black president.
Despite promises to ingratiate ourselves to the Muslim world and pull us out of all Middle Eastern conflict we are currently engaged in at least three direct Middle East conflicts and suffered countless domestic terror attacks.
This happened under a black president…who also won a Nobel PEACE Prize for simply being elected.
Across the country college campuses are exploding in protests for safe spaces and censorship.
This is happening under a black president.
Don’t take my opinion for it. These are all complaints of the most vocal elements of the black community – unemployment, lack of educational opportunity, bigotry, disproportionate imprisonment and neglect.
All under the first black president.
We’re angrier and more disenfranchised today than we were the day we inaugurated our first black
We elected a man who presumably shared our experience and concerns as black Americans and this is where we are today. Now that man is literally begging us to elect a woman who has zero experience as a black person and whom even the President himself acknowledges is not well liked. If the first black president couldn’t quell our unrest, how on earth is this rich, white lady going to do it?
I almost feel sorry for Mrs. Clinton. When the best the president of the United States and leader of your party can say about you is, “People aren’t as excited” you are in bad, bad shape. Even if Clinton wins this election, she’ll do so as the least supported “historic” candidate in history. I’m sorry…herstory.
