On Saturday, the president addressed the Congressional Black Caucus:
"I need everybody here to go back to your neighborhoods, to go back to your workplaces, to go to the churches, and go to the barbershops and go to the beauty shops. And tell them we've got more work to do," Obama said to cheers from a black-tie audience at the Washington Convention Center. "Tell them we can't wait to organize. Tell them that the time for action is now."
His speech acknowledged what pollsters have been warning Democrats for months -- that blacks are among the key Democratic groups who right now seem unlikely to turn out in large numbers in November.
To the best of my knowledge, no TEA Party organization has directed its outreach to a white caucus. Or an Asian caucus. Or a Black caucus, for that matter. But in the land of left-believe and Big Media, the TEA Party movement engages in racism. Huh?
And what is this about going to "the churches?" Is not the president aware of his liberal buddies' declarations of church-state separation? Is he encouraging citizens to go into their churches and campaign for specific candidates? Someone had better advise him on IRS regulation concerning tax exempt not-for-profit organizations and campaigning for or against specific candidates. Oh, wait a minute, I forgot. Many of his appointees apparently know nothing about IRS regulation.
The TEA Party movement has been clear about who they want to attract into its ranks: every American seeking to maintain freedom and oppose tyranny. Does anyone find any racist politics at all in a movement seeking to engage every American instead of a few select Americans in a racially exclusive caucus? Well, only in the land of left-believe.
