This minute-long clip of a speech President Obama made yesterday in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has taken the blogosphere by storm. Seven words have the nation scrambling and scratching their heads, trying to understand why our President went off-message. It’s amazing how the simple things evade those among us who claim to be the best and the brightest. It’s actually very simple.
What a country we live in. For shame, for shame. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand what the heck he meant by what he said. I hate when people play dumb.
I find it quite hilarious that the media and the blogosphere takes issue with his remark. And you may not like what I’m about to say. But people who know me know that I don’t have a problem mincing my words. *shrugs*
You know what I hate? When people (and this includes the mainstream media) dish unwarranted criticism and bullshit out but have a hard time taking it. What, did you expect that he would just lie down and be a good Black boy? WRONG.
As Chris Matthews has said over and over again, “He did what you asked of him. He played by the rules.” And what has that gained him? Two years of blatant disrespect. People whose names I won’t even bother to mention on my blog have used the media to do nothing but nitpick, nitpick, nitpick. And the President has tried to take the high road. For what? That strategy hasn’t worked!
No one on the other side of the aisle (or for that matter, Democrats, either) has given him his just credit for the things that he has managed to pull off. Oh, but noooooo! Black folks have to work 10 times as hard and do the job of 1000 people to get credit for anything. This is how it always has been. And there are no tangible rewards for this! Unless you enjoy getting picked on, dissected, studied, and denied our humanity.
Well, here’s a news flash.
Eventually, people, EVEN THE PRESIDENT, are going to get tired of being picked on. And eventually, people who are subjected to what amounts to abuse will fight back.
So, here’s what I think about the dog comment. Good for you, Mr. President. It’s high time that you put people in their place. I’m looking forward to the next 8 weeks! Take the gloves off and knuckle up, Mr. Obama! Watch those punks cower and whine like bitches!
