Black Woman to Obama: ‘I’m Exhausted of Defending You

United States
September 21, 2010 12:57pm CST
On Saturday Obama pleaded at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Phoenix Awards Dinner that Black lawmakers must rally voters back home. I think the lady in the link will NOT be one of the blacks he wants to go out and encourage black votes. I have been called a racist so many times by Obama supporters for saying what I feel about his presidency it has ceased to bother me. However now my question to you is...what do you call a black woman who tells Obama just how she feels??? She cannot be called a racist. Any suggestions? Don't be shy! http://www.eurweb.com/?p=52249

She is a real American who is working and trying to get ahead and give her children a better opportunity than she had. BUT because she is successful she is not a real Black in the eyes of the liberals so she must be racist.

I thought he was awfully flip with her. She was very articulate and brought up a very serious discussion. Of course she isnt racist. He continues to toot his own horn as she speaks of hard honest work and eating franks and beans. disgusting!

I was looking for the right word....and you said it "flip" that is exactly how I perceived Obama's reaction to this lady.

According to Joy Behar, she was a "plant". Apparently there's no way a BLACK...WOMAN could be disappointed with Obama, she had to be a Republican plant.

Not a very good plant if she only has to worry about keeping her children in private school. That along with her high paying CEO job does not show her as an example of Mrs Middleclass America struggling to make ends meet.

It is really awful that the black folks who supported him now have seen the error of thier ways just like we could see them n advance so we didnt vote for him. Why could some of us see the writting on the wall and others couldnt?

Of course she's exhausted.She's a CFO who's probably making 6 figures and she's trying to figure out a way to keep her 2 kids in private school.What a hypocrite! Obama needs to grow some b@#ls and have a real town hall.You know,one with people that aren't handpicked and have real problems.Then again,he'd actually have to care about the country and not just his own agendas. Maybe he should move to a different country.You know,one that would put up with a dictator.

Thank you for pointing out that her children are being educated in private schools!!! That went right past me! Now I am not so impressed with this person. If she was handpicked to be a shill they should have left the "private school" part out of her complaint,

Oh she's a racist. You know it, I know it, and Obama knows it. She's officially lost her "black card". Henceforth all liberals will refer to her as "Brown" just as they do with Colin Powell, Condi Rice, and any other black person, sorry BROWN person, that does not support the left wing agenda 100%. The left has other terms for people like her, but I'm not going to repeat those.

I was hopeful, even though I didn't vote for him. She's a patriot exercising her right to speak her mind and I'm sorry for her circumstances--but honestly, what did she expect? He talked a lot and said nothing except to throw out some alarm bells like how he wanted to redistribute wealth and a few other semi-hidden indications of his real beliefs. He told us no clear plans--does anyone?--only kept repeating "hope" and "change" so what did the ones disappointed in their choice expect?!

I think that she can be called honest. I voted for Obama and am very disappointed in his performance thus far and like you I am tired of being called a racist because I don't think that he is doing a good job. If I were a racist, I wouldn't have voted for him. It is a very sad statement when we have to approve of Obama's performance or being accused of racism. While I do believe that racism does exist, I do not believe that Obama would have been elected if racism was running rampant in this country. I didn't approve of George Bush's performance either and I am white so what does it make me? LOL
