CBC Will Only Hold White Presidents Accountable For Job Performance

At least, that’s the position taken by Rep. Emanuel Cleaver – the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus – in an interview with The Daily Caller. Following his appearance at Republican Rep. Allen West’s Black Conservative  Forum, Cleaver elaborated on his past comments about Obama’s image in the  African American community, saying, “The point I was making is that black people  hold the president in such high esteem, that they would not dare march on the White House even though unemployment is at 15 percent  and higher and if there was a white president we would do that because we’ve had …

Newt Plays The Fact Card Against Juan Williams’ Race Card

On a day when America celebrates the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., Juan Williams (proof positive that FOX News is not the bastion of conservatives that liberals believe it to be) decided to celebrate the day by playing the race card in a question he asked in tonight’s Republican Presidential Debate. He asked Newt Gingrich if he could see why so many people, and particularly  African-Americans, would be insulted by his controversial statements concerning  child employment. He also asked, after making mention that his email account was full of  messages from “people of all races” – not exactly sure how he…

Obama Caves to Pressure, Withdraws Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards

This morning President Obama announced, “I have requested that Administrator Jackson withdraw the draft Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards at this time.” Just hours before, the worst jobs numbers in a year were released. Business and industry groups have been beating the drum regarding the EPA’s excessive regulations and their impact on the struggling American economy. The EPA has already backed down from their foolish attempt to apply oil-spill regulations to spilled milk on dairy farms. Now common sense and economic necessity can chalk up another win. I have been alerting the public to the disastrous impacts these over-reaching regulations will…

What’s That Ticking Sound?

In yet another press conference to discuss the sorry unemployment numbers under his administration, Obama told the country that his stimulus plan was working as it was supposed to, even though unemployment had exceeded his promised ceiling of 8% when it came in at a 25 year high of 9.5%. He tried to spin it by saying that renewed employment typically lags behind other signs of improvement as a swooning economy turns around but then went on to say that he expected unemployment numbers to tick up for several months as the economy recovers from its deepest downturn in decades. So, that’s what that ticking…

Where Are The Jobs Barry?

Obama said the $787 billion stimulus plan would keep unemployment under 8%. He said that it would create 3.7 million jobs by the end of 2010. Today’s unemployment number is at a decades high 9.5%. The economy has lost nearly 2 million jobs since the stimulus plan was made law. Experts predict that a US unemployment rate of 12 per cent by the year’s end or early next year is not out of the question, and that’s without another stimulus plan, which Obama has recently announced he is considering - because the first one has worked so well. In other news, the…
