Chicago anti-political machine activists disgusted with SOTU
They know Obama

I didn’t watch the State of the Union Address.
Some grassroots activists in Chicago did. Paul McKinley is in the video.
They were not happy, because they know Obama from Chicago. And they are not part of the machine.
Via Rebel Pundi Chicago Black Grassroots React to State of the Union–Obama, The Big Let Down:
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Socialism always denies economic reality.
Good to see that some people are starting to figure this out.
Especially in Chicago!
Some of them figured it out from jump. One guy said he didn’t vote for Obama cuz he knew Obama’s record of rising based on stolen achievement. A lot of black Chicagoans, especially those he represented, may not have voted for him—-unless they got swept up in the rosy haze of “it’s historical!”.
…unless they got swept up in the rosy haze of “it’s historical!”.
In 2008, I might let ’em have a mulligan. In 2012, well… no, there’s not excuse.
I know a professional black woman who voted for Bush in 2000 and 2004 AND who cogently explained her reasons for doing so at very progressive gatherings. People couldn’t believe 1. that anybody with a brain would vote for Bush and 2. that a Black woman would.
And yet she voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012. The reasons are complex but it boils down to “I want my daughters to know that a black woman can be anything in America.” She is for lower taxation, smaller government, less regulation, less handouts and is pro-2nd A. She thinks (rightly or wrongly) that the harms done by an O presidency can be undone.
She will argue that the rhetoric and quiet discussions (among professional Blacks) has changed dramatically since Obama was elected. (Less excuses for not making it.)
I’m not saying that she is correct in her evaluation of the situation. I’m saying that it is more complex than many make it out to be.
The color of Obama’s skin may very well be the only good thing about his Presidency.
I accidentally pressed the thumb down when going to hit reply and am unable to “erase” my vote.
This is a bad flaw in this rating system.
