The Black Caucus War Against Obama – by Dick Morris

Waters Bank Aid

A civil war is breaking out within the left of the Democratic Party pitting the Congressional Black Caucus against the first African-American president.

The battle began when California Congresswoman Maxine Waters complained publicly about the Administration’s failure to do more to help minority-owned businesses in the current recession.  (Translation: In the new Stimulus of “Jobs” Bill making its way through Congress, they want a larger take).  It continued yesterday when ten members of the Black Caucus refused to participate in a meeting of the House Banking Committee which was considering the bill to restructure financial regulations forcing Chairman Barney Frank to push the bill through by the uncomfortable margin of only 31-27.

The latest shot in the battle was fired by Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss) a card carrying regular of the Black Caucus.  Faced with the need to investigate the gate crashing at the White House during the recent state dinner for India, he chose to embarrass the Administration by subpoenaing White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers rather than quietly negotiating for her appearance.

That Thompson’s action was a deliberate slap in Obama’s face is obvious (even though the media has missed it).  Since when does a liberal Democratic committee chairman embarrass a liberal Democratic president by forcing a liberal Democratic Social Secretary (from Chicago no less) to resist a subpoena to appear at a hearing?   Since he wanted to send a message to Obama and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel that the Black Caucus did not like being taken for granted.

The merits of the controversy are obvious.  What possible reason would a Social Secretary, for goodness sakes, have for the assertion of executive privilege that is usually reserved for issues of national security?  Obviously, none.  But Thompson chose his target well.  He struck at the social core of the Chicago Mafia that runs the White House, probably striking within the Obama family as well.

You don’t do that to a president of your own party, your own ideology, and even your own race unless you want to make a point.

The friction between the Black Caucus and Obama escalated when Waters berated the Administration for failing to rework a business loan from Goldman Sachs to the Inner City Broadcasting Corporation.  Inner City is run by Pierre Sutton, son of Percy Sutton, the long time media giant in the African-American community.  Two weeks after she raised the issue in a meeting with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Emanuel, Goldman saw the light and restructured the loan.

Coming on top of liberal angst with the decision by the “peace” president to escalate the war in Afghanistan, this split with the black caucus comes at an awkward time.

But you pay a price when you mess with the African American Caucus and the Suttons. The Obama Administration is feeling it.  It’s kind of fun to watch.

    WOW look at the raw emotion. Do you take pills?

    War is expensive when the son of god returns to serve in the white house. Those contractors need to be paid well after all, war is cheaper when we pay Jordanian truck drivers extra to do work he just sent soldiers to do at a fraction the cost.

    Oh and son of god is an IVY brat, WOW! Oh God Im so impressed. This one time he broke a nail and still managed to attend a half day of school. I think he deserves the medal of honor for that!

    Who needs working class adults who do all of the real dirty work, damned right. Preach on! From here on out trust fund leftist teenagers can fight all of the wars all by themselves. Your “men” can emerge from their deluxe Iraqi summer homes built by contractors in their designer swim suits and scare the enemy away by groping them and asking them out.

    I have yet to see you make a logical point, your every post is used to let us all know how great and godlike you are. You do a great job of showing America how ridiculous and hate filled leftists are. Keep it up.

    Blah, blah, blah! Whine, whine, whine. Okay, I concur with you. My opinion is the only one that counts. My parents love me, too bad your parents don't love you. I'm smart, beautiful, talented, successful and gosh, darn-it — everyone LOVES Me! Have yourself a Merry Christmas. Maybe one day I can share my good life with you.

    Honey, get a life and stop being so full of hate. We all know war is expensive. We've been at a senseless war for what, nine years? Whose fault is it that we are in this mess? You bore me with your foolishness. Maybe if you had a job where you actually had to use your brain cells, you wouldn't have time to let the likes of Dick Morris, Sarah Palin, Limbaugh or the other idiots tell you what to think. Get a life buddy!

    Lol, yea, it's all my stupid idiot fault you're neurotic, clueless, frustrated, and angry. If I didn’t have a life, and better things to do, I would have let you make an even bigger fool of yourself.

    I hope I don't cause a tantrum if I point out again that hussein's half cracker. Trust me, you'll want something to blame his ignorance and stupidity on before long. You blaming his honky half will probably come natural anyway.

    When the war started we used contractors only when needed. Sometimes the military didnt have enough people in certain job codes so they farmed out the work. Now under the messiah we have too many contractors and constant redeployments. Under his watch I have seen more IRRs than ever before, and all so things look good on paper. Those IRRs get called back up after serving their military contract terms so they can deploy into a job slot taken by hordes of contractors paid for by your mommy and daddy.

    This is the cost of corruption, not war. War can save an economy, but not when we farm all of the job slots out to international contractors who just happen to donate to your political party. The son of god is spending 300 times as much as he has to, and you give him a break for it? This is further proof that you dont give a rats ass about the economy. If your party wanted the troops home and an end to the war so bad they wouldnt be calling up every IRR in America for redeployment.

    My adult foolishness that bores you so much is reality you dont want to accept. It makes you feel uncomfortable, it questions your religious faith and holy dogmas. Kids want something to believe in, something to belong to. Kids need a simplified black and white world with absolute bad guys and absolute good guys who come to save the day. The real world little kids like you cant come to accept is never black and white. There is evil and lessor evil to pick from in most cases.

    We won the war in Iraq a long time ago. We hardly ever get shot at and the biggest threat comes from inept retards with mortar tubes who seem to miss every time. We killed off and arrested anyone capable of a good fight in Iraq. Afghanistan is all we have left to win. The messiah paid lip service to the idea of transfering us, then of course called up a few more IRRs from home while mobilizing more reserves. This of course costs alot more than simply taking us from Iraq and sending us directly to Afghanistan. Obama could end it here by noon next wednesday if he wanted to. The contractors keep us here though as they will be sure to donate to democratic PAC funds for 2012.

    Its a dirty world we live in little one. There is no white knight to sing praises to, there is no messiah, and there is no good guy political party.

    Your comment about my job gave me a good laugh. We have to plan ten steps ahead every time we leave the wire. Not doing so means possibly going home in plastic bags, giving your entire born wealthy socio economic class something to celebrate. We dont want to give you that satisfaction and do alot more thinking than you ever will over a lifetime. Being born rich and never having to work doesnt require any thinking at all, be honest with us.

    Your opinions are all taken from GED educated hollywood stars, greedy Al Gore who probably failed science, and other youth who know just as little about the world and its issues. I would put your IQ at about 41, and Im not trying to insult you at all.

  • jackbelias

    Yes that tired old democratic dogma about wealthy parents being the only ones who love their children. We have all heard it before, you arent a revolutionary for repeating it.

    Your mommy and daddy told you that you were smart and pretty, how common. Did you know that every girls parents tell their daughters that?

    I wouldnt trade my working class parents or childhood for anything. I had alot of fun and I didnt require a new Porsche for my 16th birthday like you did in order to feel loved. I had plenty of friends, countless weekend camping trips in the forrests of Maine, 5.00 all day skiing adventures at sugarloaf, and a masculine father I could honestly respect.

    Your parents are weak, limp wristed, democratic frauds who have to buy the love their children. A more pathetic form of life cannot exist. They can only produce weak, limp wristed, democratic frauds. You should have been aborted, your selfish parents had no right to breed a little disease like you into this world.

  • jackbelias

    Managing that big trust fund has got to be tough. I dont know how a retard like you gets by every day. Its offensive to think that people who work for their money question your democratic greatness.

    Sorry I haven't laughed at you for a day or so, but I was busy shopping for my new Benz. I'm tired of going back and forth with you. You bore me. You are beneath me. Go crawl back under your rock. I'm going out now for shopping and dinner with my friends. Have a good one.

My parents did not have to tell me that I was beautiful, I can see it for myself. Go crawl back under your rock. I'm going out now for shopping and dinner with my friends. Have a good one. Don't you just love me life?
