Obama is upset that it is being reported that more Blacks are starting to criticize him and his administration because of the unemployment rate of Blacks and the state of the economy?
President Obama, slipping in the polls among black supporters and under fire from black Democratic leaders for policies they say fail to address black poverty and unemployment, said Monday that targeting programs to help one community "is not how America works."
Obama added, "The other thing I want to make sure you don't just kind of slip in there is this notion that African-American leaders of late have been critical. There have been a handful of African-Americans who have been critical. They were critical when I was running for president. There's always going to be somebody who is critical of the president of the United States."
First, he slammed "whining" by Blacks, most likely the CBC, and now he says this.
The recent polling data has shown Blacks increasing dissatisfaction with Obama. Some are dismissing the polls because there will still be strong support of Black voters for President Obama. I have a strong feeling that it isn't those numbers that is worrying the Obama re-election team. I think they have additional internal polling numbers showing Blacks are now less likely to vote. And I think members of the CBC are seeing the same internal polling numbers whether they are given to them by the DNC or they are doing their own polling.
