President Barack Obama says he is “not the president of black America,” responding to criticism that he has not done enough for African Americans.
“My general view has been consistent throughout, which is that I want all businesses to succeed,” Obama told Black Enterprise magazine in an interview in the Oval Office. “I want all Americans to have opportunity. I’m not the president of black America.
“I’m the president of the United States of America, but the programs that we have put in place have been directed at those folks who are least able to get financing through conventional means, who have been in the past locked out of opportunities that were available to everybody.”

Well he is not much of a president to other Americans either. And their playing the race card so much has not won over too many skeptics. Now he has problems with critics within the black community. MSM doesn’t want it to show but they are there. So he claims he is not “the president of black America” to keep their criticism at bay. But he sure is not the universal, ‘one for all’ hero prez he touts himself as.
In fact, just like in 08, he is going group to group with a tailored message to each as he panders. And now he wants to claim he is universal across the board? This even after Time put him on the cover as the first gay president. I didn’t hear the prez objecting, or saying they took his words out of context. No he didn’t .
So its okay when he is practicing the demographic politics of pandering. But dare a particular community or group come out to take issue and criticize his actions, which oppose basic values in that community. Oh, then he can talk about “not” being a particular prez. While he travels around wanting to be identified as the Hispanic’s prez, the gays’ prez, the unions’ prez, the black’s prez, the students’ prez, the middle class’ prez, or the women’s prez.
Yet he takes issue when someone actually tells him he does not speak for or represent their values? Go figure. Sort of ironic.
No, what “has been consistent” is his egregious, non-stop promises to particular special groups, and his attempt to sell himself as whatever that community wants. (I haven’t seen him sport a Yamaka yet though) They tell us, that’s just politics. Apparently some blacks do not believe he acts in their interests. I’m only amazed that some of the other groups haven’t jumped ship or mutinied before.
So there are some cracks in those Greek Columns showing.
