Liberal Democrats continue to get rich exploiting the black and Latino vote, yet blacks & Latinos act as if Republicans are the party of the rich.
For the better part of the past four months, President Obama and his campaign strategists have poured tens of millions of dollars into negative ads trying to tie together Republicans,, Bain Capital and the “Rich 1% of America or those that make over $250,000 a year." Yet Jay -Z, , Warren Buffet, Bill Gates , Larry Ellison or , who are all Democrats and all have more money than many small countries, escape the wrath of the angry 99%. Why?
Obama and his braintrust have in essence tried to demonize success and have argued that only government is responsible for any of your successes. They point to the hundreds of workers who were laid-off during Romney’s stretch as CEO of Bain Capital and the thousands of jobs that were outsourced to foreign countries as some sort of empirical evidence as to why a Romney presidency would not bode well for the middle and poor class. Can anyone on this site or for that matter anyone anywhere explain to me what did government have to do with Jay-Z's or Oprah Winfrey's success?
It is becoming very clear that upon further scrutiny by many Republicans, Independents, economists, Democrats, scholars and anyone willing to call out or fact check the president on his claims, that nothing could be further from the truth . The party that has benefitted the most from keeping Latinos & blacks in the dark and on the entitlement plantation, has been liberal Democrats.
This is the reason you don’t see Obama surrogates like, , Hillary and , or Jay Rockefeller – who by the way have a combined net worth of $447 million -- dollars taking swipes at Romney’s net worth. They understand that this line of criticism has no merit, especially when the majority of the wealthiest politicians, entertainers & Hollywood types in this country are Democrats. The Party of Wall Street, the party of General Electric and the party of big government. The very same people that are always claiming they have the best interest in the less fortunate and downtrodden of America. The same owners of companies like General Electric that continue to export and ship out jobs overseas. They are the likes of Pelosi, Reid, Corzine, Kerry and even Obama himself who continue to rake in millions of dollars exploiting the black & Latino vote. It is the Latinos and blacks who continue to sell their votes and souls in return for entitlements and handouts without a care that the unemployment numbers in many instances far exceeds the 20 percent mark for many minorities.
Nancy Pelosi makes millions every year because she has access to insider information that would have been illegal for an average citizen to trade with – even though it’s perfectly legal for elected officials. Former Democratic U.S. senator and N.J. Gov. made $1.6 billion dollars of client money disappear during his tenure as CEO of MF Global, a derivatives and commodities brokerage firm. Yet ,the very same people scrutinizing Romney’s finances have failed to demand answers from these crooked pols. Is Democratic Sen. John Kerry, who has an estimated net worth of $200 million dollars, part of the filthy rich “1 percent” of America, or is he exempt because he has a D in front of his political affiliation?
The employment rates for many young black and Latinos is among the highest in the country. Many of these districts are represented by Democratic congressman and senators who continue to take the black & Latino vote for granted, all the while lining their pockets to the tune of millions of dollars. When the focus should be on why Obama and this administration continues to spend taxpayer dollars on companies that outsource jobs overseas while the jobs are needed here, many continue to look the other way and try to find blame elsewhere..
The president's own personal investment choices clearly show his support for companies that outsource jobs. Recent financial disclosures indicate that the Obama’s have monies tied to funds that as a matter of business practice outsource jobs overseas. Where is the outcry from the people criticizing Romney for his business practices?
The president’s campaign strategists know that there are enough uninformed voters out there to get him re-elected, and with a big assist from the mainstream media he can continue to exploit the black and Latino vote. He knows he can continue to say stupid things like “ you didn’t get there on your own, your success is not yours." He can continue to campaign and golf and not attend any jobs counsel meetings, but he can’t hide his record over the past three years. His record will be his undoing in November.
If there is any sign of any light at the end of the Obama re-election tunnel it a poll released today by The Hill shows that the majority of Americans now blame Obama for slow recovery and bad economy.
