Velma Hart’s Obama Remorse


Pages: 1 2

Those critical Republican leaders who would criticize the O’Donnells of our party must realize that she is here to stay, she is one of us now and she deserves all our support. Fortunately, the grass-roots knows this fact and has showered her campaign with donations and support.

But the juxtaposing of the O’Donnell-witchcraft story and the Velma the CFO story on the same day speaks to a more profound pont: As Democrats line up to savage the likes of Sarah Palin, O’Donnell, Sharron Angle and Rand Paul, they fail to realize that this election is not about them. It is about us. It turns not on their biographies, but on our misery.

We have watched one of the most activist presidents in history blessed with the most compliant of Congresses pass program after program, virtually without modification or even significant amendment, all the while assuring us that they would lead us out of recession and into recovery. Now that the recovery is supposedly upon us, we realize, to our dread, that it may be a future of permanent unemployment, just as they have in Europe.

This is the agony that impelled Velma the CFO to speak out. It is a deeply personal distress and speaks to each of our expectations for the rest of our lives. If the candidates who dabbled in witchcraft as children or who preach an overly strict personal morality are the ones who back cuts in government spending, a reduction in the deficit, no higher taxes, an end to government takeover of our health care system and no cuts in Medicare, then we will vote for them anyway.

Were the election more academic, were it waged on issues of less personal moment to each of us, it would be different. But who can ignore the witchcraft being practiced not by high-schoolers, but by legislators in Washington hoping to summon prosperity from the other side by spending us into oblivion and taxing us to death? That is the witchcraft that worries all of us.

And worries Velma the CFO.

    Exactly, "trickle up poverty"

    If my RNC had the audacity of choosing a burned-up MC CAIN above ROMNEY or
    HUCKABEE, any of which would have swept the floor at the debates with the present inhabitant of the White House, other gtan the Tea Party people, I don't put too much faith in the November elections to get rid of the DEMOCRAP majority in Congress

    With all due respect to Mr. Morris, whose election analysis I follow closely as a "best information source," I heard two interviews with Velma Hart after her question hit the nets. Her answers to the interviewers indicated that she was, and remains, a kool-aid drinker. She said that she still supports the annointed one, and seems to be more inclined to wonder what is going wrong with his masterful plan, rather than blaming him for biting off more than he was ever qualified to put in his mouth.

    If he runs again in 2012 Ms. Hart will gladly vote for him, firm in the belief that he is the answer to all her prayers, believing that he truly cares about her, regardless of whether she has a job and food on the table. She still doesn't get it.

      I think you're right, many blacks are dissatisfied with how things are going, they tend to be the ones most screwed, but they seem to be unable to connect the dots, to see the correlation of cause and effect. Some of them, like Velma, will vote for Obama again, seemingly suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, but many of them simply won't vote.

      you are correct. Velma Hart was in the position to do great things for America and has dropped the ball. I just watched her on FOX with Bill Hemmer. She is NOT a free thinker.

      She will not get beyond the color of her own skin.

        I think most of you (including Morris) are missing Velma's point. She's disapointed because Obama hasn't stuck it to the (White) man yet, and is wondering when her $2,000 debit cards from Uncle Sam are going to start showing up! Personally, I feel that when folks like her and a large part of Obama's constituents find out that the debit cards aren't showing up, neither will they at the next election. (2012)

          they will still vote for the black man. take a look at how africa messed itself up at every turn…. look how a natural disaster in New Orleans unravels. I will say the mentality that it is "my turn" and entitlement and victimhood. have prevented black people all over the world from moving forward.

          they like to wallow in their collective pity and fail to take responsibility for their lot in life.

          those that are exceptions have moved on and are as prosperous as anyone else.

          so basically the blacks will always vote for a black. obama can (and does) ignore them because he can.

    If the fate of the conservative movement are entirely tied to one candidate, it is time for it to fail. No organization can have any power at all if it only depends on one individual.

  • den

    My former step daughter wanted Obama because he was "black" or Hilary because she was a "woman". I wonder if these are qualities worth voting specifically for?

    I thought ability should have been on the list but I am not pollitically correct.

      You would think that trustworthiness might be up there, too.

    OBAMA'S FIRST DAY STILL HIS BEST

    After 600 days of blundering through his presidency Barack Obama's first day is still his best. Hopelessly stuck on stupid but thinking that he's wise Obama is struck deaf, dumb and blind by the egalitarian ideal and his imagined superiority and history changing genius. Foolishly believing against the facts that prosperity can be created by growing government and spreading wealth Obama's economy is in a deep morass of high unemployment and painfully low growth unable to recover, flat, anemic, broke.

    Recklessly pursuing the same leftist course that failed for Hoover, FDR, the Greeks and Japanese Obama is bringing to an end in a political catastrophe New Deal/Great Society 1960s Liberalism and the utopian dream of social justice heaven. And to that we say AMEN.

      you are correct ..obama is nothing more then an ignorant opportunist and parasite.

      it was obvious that he was ignoring the military when McCrystal couldn't get a meeting with him or have him respond to his proposal.

      someone who hates the military should never be president.

    Call me what you will it does me no harm, but I feel blacks will again support Obama. They tend to stick together. Just ask a conservative black how it feels when they stray too far from the democratic plantation.

    One of the most obvious reasons for the outcome of the last election….The GOP went with McCain….and McCain ran a terrible campaign…..Many found it difficult to be enthusiastic about voting for him. …so McCain lost….as expected.

    If Velma had not been a black female, and would have been a white male, I assure you she would have had her reputation destroyed and every piece of percieved dirt dug up and on display the same way Joe the Plumber was treated. The Lame Stream Media would have crucified her and Gibbs would have tried to make her a laughing stock.

    I wonder if she still thinks that obama will pay her mortgage and put gas in her car?

    • http://www.pbase.com/opinion/maniacal 2maxpower

      I think Velma is walking it back a bit. …and looking over her shoulder a lot.

  • Nick Shaw

    I have only one question, what did Velma, a wife, mother and chief financial officer who sends her kids to private school, expect Obama or more government, if you will, to do for her, as representative of the middle class? It seems she did pretty well for herself and family during, let me see, '94 to '06, 12 years of Republican control of congress. She doesn't look that old so, this was a significant portion of her life. Does she not see, again, as a CFO, exactly where the problem lies? Nope. Despite getting what she is "entitled to", she expected more from "her kind", that being a black president. I know that may sound racist and God knows I am not, however, it's probably very close to the truth. Though Velma would never admit it.

    "If the grass-roots tea party is foisting unqualified candidates upon us, and if our very own party leaders think this is true, what a weapon we are handing the Democrats." I think this expression is out of context with the reality of the mood of Americans. We are not only discusted with the Democratics, the Republicans are running a close second. Both parties need to clean up their acts or there will be a new party to recon with.

  • M Rob

    Velma shouldn't be CFO of anything if she supports Obumble. Any one with two brain cells to rub together and especially anyone who pays taxes wouldn't vote for Obumble. She can't look past the color of Obumbles skin long enough to realize that it is her income he is confiscating and redistributing and he will continue to do so. Any black American who is paying taxes is getting reamed just like whitey.

  • Bob

    Maybe Velma needs to get off her fat black ass and support her president instead of "waiting for him to do something for her". Help comes to those who help themselves. "Ask not…… " per JFK.

  • MollyBrand

    Velma Hart is an Obama operative-saw her on Fox this AM-this is Axelrod's PR strategy to a tee. She had a national forum to talk about how she admires and would vote again for the Marxist-come on-in addition, she's a community organizer, started some kids of education org – back in 1990's-wake up- her tone and demeanor this morning was the real Hart-the one at the townhall- a PR act.
