    LOL. They say Obama has "lurched to the right". Do they blame Obama? No, they don't.

    I think Maxine Waters speaks for Americans of all races

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...ent-obama.html

    “The Tea Party discovered something. That is if they organize, if they talk loud enough, if they threaten, if they register to vote and elect a few people, they can take over the Congress of the United States,” said Rep. Maxine Waters. “They called our bluff and we blinked. We should have made them walk the plank.”

    ...

    “The people want us to fight. They want us to stand up,” Waters said. “We are going to be insistent that what comes out in September is going to reflect the experiences that we have had.”
    From the link:

    With a stinging budget defeat behind them and unemployment in the black community soaring to 16 percent, members of the Congressional Black Caucus say they’re done waiting for Barack Obama to fight their battles for them.

    Instead, the 43 African-American lawmakers say they’re taking matters into their own hands and will carry the fight to Tea Party Republicans, whom they blame for Obama’s latest lurch to the right.

    I had no idea there were 43 black congressmen. How come we keep seeing the same handful over and over?

    Mazine Waters is just pissed that a bunch people got something done in 18 months, that she and her Moombat followers couldn't with decades of jumping up and down and bitching.

    Of course in those decades Maxine did manage to make her and her family rich with shady business deals.
    So we can't say Maxine hasn't been successful; she still has Moonbats kissing her ass.

    LOL! Rhetorical question right?:D

    We even have Black Congressman/Women that are Republican...but yet...as you pointed out we keep saying the same ones over and over.

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Why is it that the liberals and progressives are always the ones to bring a politician's race/color into a conversation?

    Because Liberalism/Communism/Socialism is all about identity politics.

    You take that away from them and you've taken away everything they are and stand for.

    Identity politics?

    At any rate, I always imagined liberals who inject race are closet racists themselves. Kinda like how some homosexuals in denial are initially homophobic (think mr. garrison from southpark).

    Because race is an issue in some aspect of almost any political situation where racial differences are present. Denial or cuteness doesn't change that.

    Only to racists. Race doesn't matter to people who aren't racists.
