When you’re a failed president whose only impact on black Americans has been to increase their unemployment rate and side against them on the issue of same-sex marriage, this is not a group Obama’s going to be able to inspire as easily. So, as we saw for months, during Obama’s campaign, he used a “devil you know” campaign that says, “If I can’t get you to come out and vote for me, I can damn well get you to vote against the other guy.”
Even with that move, he knew that he wouldn’t get the same support from the black ministers so what way to appeal to the black community than to take the oath ceremoniously on MLK’s Holiday. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday was on January 15th. There is a mandate from the Constitution to swear the incoming president in on the 20th of January. Oh wow….MLK’s Holiday is on the 21st…let’s hold the ceremony to the public then and watch the black community connect the dots associating MLK Jr with Barack Obama.
In any number of cynical moves, Team Obama has appealed to the worst in the Democratic base through the waging of a campaign of bitter divisiveness. We’ve seen the phony War on Women, the demagoguery of class warfare, the unilateral decision to stop enforcing certain immigration laws for a special demographic (Hispanics), and now we’ve learned that Democrats have gone so far as to manufacture an Orwellian rewriting of history on the DNC Website.
Barack Obama and the Democrats will sell their souls to stay in power and sign it in blood which they probably already have. I know that most of you won’t take the bait so tell your friends that this administration is a sham and should be watched a lot more closely.
