BET Founder Bob Johnson Says “This Country Would Never Tolerate White Unemployment at 14 or 15 Percent” … Blacks Growing Restless With Obama’s Failed Policies
BARACK OBAMA HAS BEEN AN EPIC FAILURE FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY … BLACK AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YOU?
Blacks should wonder why with the first black president, blacks are even more worse off than before … Can they handle the truth? Have they just figured out that Barack Obama has been an complete an epic failure as president? Obama has promised job growth and none nothing but make matters worse, increase the federal debt and increase costs.
As reported by CNS News, Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Bob Johnson said earlier this week .at the National Press Club that the United States would “never tolerate white unemployment at 14 or 15%”. He went on to say that the unemployment for the black community has been double that of white Americans for over 50 years. Obviously Obama has no issue with the high black unemployment rate as he has made matters worse during his regime. Its also many black leaders are finally making their voices heard after 4 years of silence during Obama’s first term. As per Town Hall, political leaders from the Congressional Black Caucus to the NAACP have begun to open fire on the White House. To be perfectly honest, I am not sure why anyone would tolerate the present national average of unemployment, no matter what one’s skin color is. Obama’s economic policies have been a disaster for all people of any color.
This country would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 and 15 percent. No one would ever stay in office at 14 or 15 percent unemployment in this nation, but we’ve had that double unemployment for over 50 years,” Johnson said while speaking at the National Press Club about the gap between whites and blacks in America.
“The national average is 7.7 percent, and African-American unemployment is 13.8 percent. To be honest, it’s probably greater than that when you count the number of African-Americans who have simply given up on finding employment,” said Johnson, who is also founder and chairman of The RLJ Companies.
However, does Bob Johnson want the truth to his questions, or just more excuses that have been the cause that have kept black unemployment percentages high?
Under President Barack Obama, unemployment for blacks has been abysmal. Males, females and teens have all seen their unemployment numbers skyrocket under Obama. But I thought he cared about them? How does a segment of the population support a president with 95% of the vote and still get nothing in return. And by getting something I do not mean for food stamps, unemployment and Obama phones.
As reported at Vibe, Dr. Benjamin Carson criticizes President Obama on Black unemployment, “If President Obama wants to be a hero in the African-American community, he should do something to alleviate the “abominable” Black unemployment rate in America”.
“I think the best thing that he (President Obama) can possibly do that will help minorities is to enact policies that allow for growth of the economy,” said Carson. “Because when you look at the employment rate for instance in the African American community, it’s abominable. And the policies that have been enacted have only made it worse. They have not made it better. So if he really wanted to be a hero in that community, let’s start doing some things that make sense economically and get the money flowing.”
Barack Obama’s failed job policies are facing bitter criticism from African-American leaders who say black unemployment has grown worse under his presidency.
After four years of holding their tongues and remaining quiet in the face of sharply rising black unemployment and record poverty, political leaders from the Congressional Black Caucus to the NAACP have begun to open fire on the White House.
Unemployment for both women and African-Americans is higher today than it was when President Barack Obama first took office in 2009, according to federal government data.
Despite an economy that has technically been in recovery since June of 2009, many economic indicators are the same or worse than when President Obama gave his first address to a Joint Session of Congress in February 2009.
“We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before,” Obama said in that speech.
However, employment for African-Americans and women has not recovered and, in fact, is worse today than it was when Obama said those words.
MAKING PEOPLE DEPENDENT UPON GOVERNMENT TO GET THEIR VOTE WILL NEVER FIX THE PROBLEM.
Joe Biden to take third vacation of the year … More shared sacrifice from the 1% Obama Administration.
As millions of Americans struggle to maintain a roof over their heads, struggle to have a job, struggle with the increased costs of gas, the 2% payroll tax, and increase in insurance premiums thanks to Obamacare, and as a record number of Americans are on food stamps … Joe Biden thinks it is perfectly ok to take a third vacation of 2013. Obama, Biden and Democrats talk about the cut backs, furloughs and the pain that will be caused to the American people, but that is only for you. Obama and Biden will not be affected at all. Welcome to the 1% Presidency.
Biden to America … I have 5 more vacations planned in the next couple months … you people were foolish enough to reelect us
Vice President Biden today is enjoying his third vacation of the year, a five day sojourn on South Carolina’s luxurious Kiawah Island, where he will no doubt partake of his favorite pastime, golf.
Biden and his wife Jill arrived on the island – known as a golf mecca – Thursday night and are not scheduled to depart before Monday.
Biden’s trip is the latest episode in a bout of rampant vacationing by the First and Second Families, who have been roaring out of Washington this year on taxpayer-funded excursions even as the deficit mounts and the sequester axes jobs and critical spending on other priorities.
This administration is simply despicable. One would think that they would lead by example. Not these clowns.
President Barack Hussein Obama stated, “I am not a dictator. I am the president.” Really? It’s been my experience in life when ever some one has to tell you who they are not, they usually are.
Isn’t it dictators who disregard the will of the people and cram their agenda down the throats of those they rule, such like Obamacare? Isn’t it dictators like Nicolae Ceausescu, Saddam Hussein, and Fidel Castro who also released criminal prisoners? Isn’t it dictators who play class warfare and keep its citizens at each others throats so that they can rule by fiat? Isn’t it a dictator who threatens the media to keep them in line so that they will operate as their propaganda tool? Isn’t it a dictator who wants to keep the people dependent upon the government and food stamps, and cause individuals to struggle as median incomes fall? Isn’t it a dictator who makes false promises to their people to keep them in line when they knew all along it was a lie? Isn’t it a dictator who would consistently show contempt for the US Constitution whose sole purpose was to define federal authority and the rights of the People?
Isn’t it a dictator who would watch millions of Americans struggle, lose their jobs, homes and businesses while they go on vacations, weekly gold outings and live the life of Riley? All the while they say they care, but do nothing but keep the citizenry at conflict with one another. Isn’t it a dictator who would over-regulate business in order to control and suppress the economy? Isn’t it a dictator who blames everyone one else for the ills of society, when they are the one who is in control? Isn’t it a dictator who would want to control an individuals entire life from birth to death? All in all, I would say you are a dictator.
Sorry, I know tyranny when I see it.
”I am not a dictator. I am the president.” “So, ultimately, if Mitch McConnell or John Boehner say that we need to go to catch a plane, I can’t have Secret Service block the door way, right?”
UNBELIEVABLE, GET READY FOR 4 MORE YEARS OF ECONOMIC PAIN AMERICA AND YOU VOTED FOR IT …
Don’t worry Obamanomics has saved the US economy, NOT!!! America, the following is not a Joe Biden gaffe. It is what the Obama administration and Democrats actually believe. They think that you are no longer worried about the economy and this way it will enable Obama to move on to guns and immigration as Americans continue to be unemployed. Yesterday at the White House, the economist Joe Biden told reporters, Americans no longer worried about the economy.
“They are no longer worried, I think, about our economy being overwhelmed either by Europe writ large, the EU, or China somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation that exists in the world. They are no longer, I think, worried about our economy being overwhelmed beyond our shores.”
What say you America, are you concerned about the economy, lack of job growth, record number of Americans on food stamps and a standard of living that continues to go down? Just curious, what has changed? It certainly cannot be President Barack Obama’s economic record of job growth as Obama wins the “Gold For Worst Economic Recovery Ever”.
UK Telegraph gets it Right: So Why Does President Obama keeps the MSM at a Distance … Because Playing Golf with Tiger Woods Doesn’t Look Good with 12 Million Americans Unemployed & a $16 Trillion Debt
Why does it take a media outlet outside the United States to get it right when it comes to Barack Obama?
From the UK Telegraph comes the following explanation as to why President Barack Obama kept the press away while he played golf with Tiger Woods over this past President’s Day weekend. Maybe it is because Barack Obama and his handlers hardly want the images of a 1% president playing golf and living the life of Riley while 12 million individuals are unemployed, a $16 trillion debt, gas prices at record highs, record number of Americans on food stamps and a jobs market that continues to flounder. All this while
President Emperor Obama golfs plays the fiddle. The Politico reports that W.H. press corps expressed ’Extreme frustration’ over ‘having absolutely no access’ to Obama. However, one would ask of the W.H. press corps that when you do have access, why don’t you actually ask tough questions and hold this president and his failed polices to the fire rather than the softball questions and acting as his propaganda machine?
Shhh, don’t tell anyone that I am really more of an elitist 1% than Mitt Romney ever was …
Isn’t it amazing that the only time that Barack Obama took time off from golfing was to run for reelection. Says a lot about the individual on this President’s Day, doesn’t it? Where are the MSM outlets reporting that story? It is quite amazing that Obama does nothing but divide Americans with class warfare is actually part of the very people he wants those who vote for him to hate.
Barack Obama has kept the press well away this President’s Day (Washington’s Birthday) weekend (hat tip: Drudge Report) as he golfs with Tiger Woods in Florida. As Politico’s Dylan Byers writes:
Ed Henry, the Fox News correspondent and president of the White House Correspondents Association, released a statement Sunday evening in which he said the press corps had been given no access to the president, who was joined on his outing by star golfer Tiger Woods, and that the WHCA would fight for greater transparency in the days ahead.
“Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents Association, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend,” Henry said in a statement, relayed in a White House pool report. “There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency.”
EXIT QUESTION: For the 99%, how many of you would be going mental if Mitt Romney had been taking yet another vacation on the tax payers dime with all of the dismal economic conditions presently going on in America? How come you do not hold Obama’s feet to the fire? You have a 1% president in office and you are too embarrassed and hypocritical to admit it.
This wasn’t the first time Woods and Obama golfed. Remember this classic ‘Golf Digest’ cover … “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Eman”.
More Sacrifice from the Obama’s as US Economy and Americans Struggle … Barack Obama Plays Golf with Tiger Woods & Michelle off with the Girls Out West to Ski
SHARED SACRIFICE AND SKIN IN THE GAME FOR THEE, NOT ‘FORE’ ME …
BARACK OBAMA, THE 1% PRESIDENT: This must be more of that shared sacrifice that President Barack Obama talks about. Oh that’s right, only we peons are supposed to sacrifice, not Obama or the First family. As a matter of fact, not only is the First family not sacrificing, they are doing one better. Barack Obama, Michelle and the first kids are on separate vacations costing the tax payers double. Obama is down in Florida golfing with Tiger Woods and getting golf lessons from Butch Harmon. The golf foursome is being completed by United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane. You know, exactly what the rest of the 99% can do every day. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama is off skiing with the girls out West on a separate vacation. As Americans continue to struggle, record numbers are on food stamps and disabilities, and individuals are still out of work … Obama sets the example and plays golf.
Just curious, where is Barack Obama’s skin in the game?
President Barack Obama hit the greens Sunday with famed golfer Tiger Woods, according to deputy White House press secretary Josh Earnest.
Obama is spending President’s Day weekend at a sprawling resort in Palm City, Florida, where he’s polishing his golf game. On Saturday, he worked on his swing with Woods’ former coach, Butch Harmon.
The White House did permit press coverage of the golf outing Sunday.
Along with Woods, Obama played with U.S Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Jim Crane, a Democratic donor who owns the resort and the Houston Astros. Obama played with Kirk and Crane on Saturday, as well.
President Barack Obama Averaged 49.1% Job Approval During First Term in Office, Among the Lowest of Post World War II Presidents
Second Term Mandate … Hardly.
According to Gallup, President Barack Hussein Obama’s job approval during his first term in office was among the lowest of ant of the post-World War II presidents. His average of 49.1% during his first term and 48.1% during his final year of his first term is only above Jimmy Carter and George H.G. Bush. However, these two individuals lost reelection. With a consistent high unemployment rate, record number of individuals on food stamps, near record low job participation and record debt, it makes one scratch their heads how GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney did not defeat Obama.
One really has to wonder just how low Barack Obama’s job approval ratings would be if he did not have the liberal MSM carrying his water and opening supporting and campaigning for him. How would the American people feel about Barack Obama if they did not have a lying and complicit propagandist media running cover for him? It explains how such an epic failure of a president was reelected. Which begs the questions, had it not been for the corrupt liberal media complex, would a lazy and apathetic America still voted him in for a second term or would they still have bought into Obama’s divisiveness and class warfare?
President Barack Obama averaged 49.1% job approval during his first term in office, among the lowest for post-World War II presidents. Only Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford had lower job approval averages. Obama’s first-term average is most similar to Bill Clinton’s. Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, and Dwight Eisenhower were the most popular first-term presidents.
Obama’s first-term approval average, like those of most presidents with lower first-term averages, was likely dragged down by a sluggish economy. Clinton and Reagan saw higher second-term approval as the economy improved. Obama’s approval rating has also shown improvement, with a 48.1% average in his fourth year in office after a 44.4% average in his third year.
Your Hard Earned Tax Dollars … Welfare Recipients Drawing Taxpayer Funds at Strip Clubs, Liquor Stores & Porn Shops
JUST MORE FRAUD WITH OUR HARD EARNED MONEY AND THE GOVERNMENT COULD CARE LESS … WHAT ELSE WOULD WE EXPECT DURING THE REGIME OF THE FOOD STAMP PRESIDENT?
This gives a whole new meaning to the term “pole” tax. Isn’t this special … welfare leaches are withdrawing tax payer funds via their EBT cards at strip club, liquor store and porn shop ATM’s. Even though, the Agriculture Department prohibits the purchase of alcohol, tobacco and non-food items, recipients are withdrawing cash at these types of establishment ATM’s and obviously purchasing bread and milk for their families. NYC Mayor Bloomberg is all about the regulating of the size of a soda, but not welfare funds. More typical liberal logic.
An investigation into where welfare recipients are using their Electronic Benefit Transfer cards has revealed that some are withdrawing taxpayer money from EBT-friendly ATMs at strip clubs and liquor stores.
The New York Post, looking at a database of 200 million EBT records from January 2011 to July 2012 obtained through a Freedom of Information request, discovered that some people receiving government benefits have been using their EBT cards to withdraw cash at several questionable New York establishments: Hank’s Saloon, a porn shop called Blue Door Video, the Patriot Saloon, the Club Eleven strip club, the Club Heat strip joint and Drinks Galore.
Food stamps and cash assistance from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program are accessible through EBT cards. EBT cash benefits can be withdrawn from participating ATMs.
Just curious, why are any welfare recipients allowed to withdraw cash from an EBT card? This is an obvious recipe for fraud. For what purpose would the welfare recipients need cash? If they are able to purchase goods, food and other necessary items via there EBT card, for what purpose do they need cash? Sorry, but there is no, let me emphasize this, NO REASON WHY OUR HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS SHOULD BE USED IN THIS MANNER!!!
This is how much the Federal and States care about the proper utilization of hard earned tax payer dollars. We are called greedy and uncaring for questioning why individuals need such welfare funds, yet these leaches are allowed to get away with this fraud and the feds and state governments could care less. Talk about passing the buck. The Feds, the Department of Health and Human Services say its the responsibility of the states and the states say its the retailers obligation. In the end, NO ONE REGULATES THE LOCATIONS … ARE YOU FRIGGIN SERIOUS? The following is the ignorance of the program. If one is taking cash out, how would anyone know what the cash is for? Oh, it’s the honor system. AIN’T THAT GRAND!!!
Welfare recipients receive food stamps and cash assistance under the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program. Both benefits are accessed through an EBT card, but only cash assistance — meant for housing, utilities and household necessities — can be accessed at ATMs.
A single-person household could receive a maximum $200 in monthly food stamps plus $158 in cash assistance. A family of four could get as much as $668 in food stamps and $433 in cash.
More government brilliance, or the lack thereof. Obviously this program has been set up to encourage fraud.
A spokesman with the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees TANF, told the Post that states are responsible for making rules governing the use of EBT cards. New York’s welfare office explained that it is the retailers who decide if they house an EBT-compatible ATM, not the state, which does not regulate the locations.
Some one needs to explain the following … how is it that our tax dollars taken by the feds and sent to the states have no regulations in place to make sure that there is no fraud taking place? So one can just make continual cash withdrawals with their ETB card at ATM’s and purchase illegal drugs, cigarettes, guns and extra large sodas?
Barack Obama … TIME Magazine’s 2012 Man of the Year … The Scared Monkeys Names Obama the Food Stamp President of the Year
OBAMANATION: President Barack Obama … TIME Magazine’s 2012 ’Man of the Year’. Because its all about Obama, hardly about America.
Why stop there? Why not make Barack Obama Time Man of the Century? What about Time Man of all Time? Who is Time magazine kidding, they would have made Obama ‘Man of the Year’ even if he had lost the 2012 Presidential election. Time stated that Obama “is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America.” New America translated as record number of Americans on Food Stamps, jobless job recovery, fabricated unemployment rate only reduced because of less Americans participating in the work force and a an America that he has successfully divided due to his class warfare.
Barack Obama was named the Scared Monkeys Food Stamp President of the Year.
Time magazine has named President Barack Obama as its 2012 Person of the Year.
“We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes,” Time managing editor Richard Stengel said in announcing its choice. “And Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America.”
The president’s reelection in November showed “the Obama effect was not ephemeral anymore, no longer reducible to what had once been mocked as that ‘hopey-changey stuff,’” Time’s Michael Scherer wrote in the accompanying cover story. “It could be measured in wars stopped and started; industries saved, restructured or reregulated; tax cuts extended; debt levels inflated; terrorists killed; the health-insurance system reimagined; and gay service members who could walk in uniform with their partners. It could be seen in the new faces who waited hours to vote and in the new ways campaigns are run. America debated and decided this year: history would not record Obama’s presidency as a fluke.”
However, unfortunately for America thanks to Obamacare, Americans premiums will rise and not go down as promised. Unemployment is still a nightmare for Americans as they drop out of the workforce or because government dependent on welfare, unemployment benefits or disability claims.
UPDATE I: And in typical fashion the moonbat Left is never satisfied. The Lonely Conservativepoints out the Left is giddy that Obama wins Man of the Year when he has literally destroyed the US; however, they are upset with the racist pic. So now Time mag is racist? Mental illness has run amuck.
