President Obama continually stumbles into mishaps and he continually cave, gives in to Republicans. The latest fiasco is the scheduling conflicts in his efforts to call a joint session of Congress to present his job plan speech. Someone said that America need a jobs plan, but the President needs a social secretary.
President Obama also needs to think about switching parties, maybe he has a secret desire to be a Republican. The President really has no basis or background to even begin to know what it means to be an African American. He was not raised in a black household by black parents, so he has absolutely no reference point. His reference point is primarily multi-racial.
We call him the first African- American President, primarily because of lienage. He had an African father, who was in effect absent.
That hardly qualifies him to really know what it means to be a black man in America. Any knowledge he gleamed came second hand from any Black Man or Woman he may have known. President Obama is a good man, a very good man, however, he finds it awful hard take a hard line against Republicans.
He most likely had to get along all his life growing up as the only black in the neighborhood. So he learned to compromise, no matter what the cost. That’s a good thing, however Republicans have no good intentions toward President Obama. He needs to use the bully pulpit of the White House to get the lowly Republicans in line, to overcome, quite frankly, their blatant racism toward the President.
