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  white presidents since George Washington.”  (emphasis mine)

Of course, playing the race card when it comes to dealing with the Community Organizer-In-Chief has become standard operating procedure for certain leaders in the black community.

Civil Rights Leader, Martin Luther King Jr. – whose birthday was celebrated last week – had an opinion on race that I find appropriate on the topic.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

I’m not sure why the Emmanuel Cleavers of the world haven’t figured this out yet when it comes to dealing with the Anointed One.

Maybe it’s because Obama is half-white. Naw, that would mean that blacks would have to march. . . . . . . . . . . . . . doesn’t it?
