Anyone who can take a beat-down like they just received and then make statements like;
“Now it’s time for The President to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a closely divided Senate; step up to the plate on the challenges of the moment; and deliver in a way that he did not in his first four years in office.”; Should have skipped the second hit of acid last night……………
…………………………… As if the House runs the nation and The President has to kow-tow to them; as they wanted him to do last term.
As if The President was at fault for the failure of the House; to do it’s job and support the efforts of The President; without regard for his party affiliation; sex; or race.
Now we have seen; during the terms of Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, LBJ, Truman, and FDR; how The House treats a Democrat; who is a man; and white. They have always treated all of the Presidents with respect and deference.
We have not yet had a woman as President; so we don’t know how she would be treated. If John Boehner treated a female president with as much respect as he has our first black president; I expect he would be exposing his genitals to her and hollering;
“Whoo-hoo”; Hey Bitch” “Suck this”
Now; what is the one difference between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama that might cause John Boehner and his House to accord Obama so much less respect than Clinton? Both Democrats; both Male; both centered on helping the average American (and Clinton was pre-Bush Tax cuts) so what?
It must be the only essential difference left standing.
Clinton; White; Good. Obama; Black; Ba-a-a-d.
Now; they can deny this as long as they wish. It is possible that Johnny B. and his House of Clowns” actually believe that their pretend play at “Not Racist” fools the American people.
They do think “a bit” highly of themselves and have little respect for a white man such as myself; believing I’m not smart enough to detect their ruse.
So; if I were Black; and a man; and suddenly in a position of power like say; President of the United States?
It’s time to stop the charade and fess up Johnny B. You have no intention of working with The President on anything.
You will try to make it look like you are co-operating but behind the scenes; you will be frustrating The Presidents efforts whenever and wherever possible.
