“It’s Called Divide And Conquer”

President Barack Obama took full responsibility for the sluggish economic recovery and said that “we have not made as much progress as we need to make”.

The President’s comments came less than a day after the Republicans made historic gains in Congress by riding a tidal wave of voter discontent.

Obama said he was doing “a whole lot of reflecting” following heavy losses across the country just two years after he took office, a repudiation by voters of the president’s policies.

Obama called the losses a “shallacking” during his hour-long news conference, adding that he’ll work with Republicans on an array of policy issues and help jumpstart the stagnant economy.

Either way, Barack Obama will be judged as a President on the bottom line results.

The bottom line to the real bottom line is, the Bush-era tax cuts that will expire at the end of the year unless Congress decides otherwise is the next big issue both sides will have to decide on in the coming weeks.

Obama has sought to make all of them permanent — except for families making more than $250,000 a year or individuals making $200,000 a year — while Republicans want to preserve them for every tax bracket.

So the bottom line is the money for republicans and the tea party activist feel as though they now have the upper hand.

So if the tea party are all republican activist, how come the dems don’t have a coffee clutch party? I thought the Rev. Al Sharpton was leading that fight based upon his march against Beck and the tea party’s rally back in August. I thought Al Sharpton was Barack Obama’s ears in the streets? What the hell happened because based on the results, every single candidate (including Nicole Paultre Bell) lost in yesterday’s election. 

According to one of many phone calls I received this morning, Al Sharpton has lost his street CRED.

What do you think? Who should be doing more to help President Obama and the democratic party?

  1. And Bush’s “War For Oil On Terror” is STILL costing how much… per day????

    What is the total so far????



    1. And once again…I completely agree with Man! (Mark that as “Agreement #2″). the repub gop wanna fatten dey pockets while $$ (money) is still being spilled on war.


  2. We about to see the real over the next two years! Georgia got a Hellofa DEAL…a very racist Deal…

    With control over the House nothing is going to get accomplished. Everything that gets proposed will be blocked. Which will make it seem like nothing the POTUS said he’s going to accomplish will get accomplished. We ain’t seen nothing yet.


    1. @Mrs, He is so thorough that he already accomplished the big things he said he would accomplish. Healthcare, and getting the heck out of Iraq are done thank God. Now they will bicker and accomplish absolutely nothing for the next two years. I’m tired of all of them. Its a game to them. None of them give a damn about us. Its all about posturing enough to stay in a position of prestige with perks out the ying yang.


    2. @ MRS: you are right they will make it hard for him to get things done however the Republicans set themselves up for 2012 and not in a good way. He can negotiate on issues at least though but we did see how well that went.


    3. What I am afraid of is the upsweep. When things that Barack has put in place actually starts to benefit us. They will take credit stating that it was because they “Took Over” it happened. Some Americans have short-tem memory loss and has forgotten the past BULLSHIT the republicans placed us under.


    4. I agree with this too. Remember all the great ones are celebrated long after they have left office or have died. In the future obama will get all kinds of credit after the fact.

      Unfortunately there are alot of people who are just ignorant and cant understand the timeline of when a policy or law is passed and how long it will take effect or reap the benefits…


    5. the gain with republican will be the fact that they are just like a punk azz friend who pretend they have your back, talk junk until a fight breaks out.. and they leave you to fight by yourself and when the coast is clear.. They sneak up from behind and say “Yeah we did it!” and they started the shit in the first place. 😡


  3. The only thing that comforts me is that if the Republicans gain power in 2012 I really believe what goes around comes around…Hide your wife, hide your kids cause when the republicans take over the REAL shit is going down….


  4. sharpton ain’t shit, ain’t neva been shit and imo neva had no street cred. and if obama is/was depending on his (al sharpton’s) sorry ass to lead any party here’s the proof in his fuckin puddin.


  5. I smell bullshit on this one. since when did sharpton have street cred? how can he assist obama when he’s really a joke himself. sharpton is for sharpton and i’ll take that to the grave.


  6. now that the Republicans have the House, God help us all, cause a lot of good stuff gonna hit the road: Unemployment benefits: cut! Medicade: cut! Fed govt jobs (that’s me): CUT! Food stamps: CUT The list goes on and on and on.


  7. Everyone wants to point out the things that President Obama has’nt done. What about the things he has done? Here are just a few.

    -Extended benefits to same-sex partners of ferderal employees

    -Appointed the nations first Chief Technogy Officer

    -Appointed more openly gay officails than any other U.S president in history

    -Signed Lily Ledbettter Fair Pay Act, restoring basic protections
    against pay discriminations for women and other workers

    -Provided travel expenses to families of fallen soldiers to be on hand when the body arrives at Dover AFB

    -Reversed the policy of barring media coverage during the return of fallen soldiers

    -Signed the Children’s Health Insurance Reauthorization Act, which provides health care to 11 million kids–4 million of whom were previously uninsured

    -Issued executive order to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay

    -Increased minority access to capital

    -Signed Health Care Redform Bill, preventing insurance companies from denying insurance because of pre-existing conditions.

    -Tax cuts for up to 3.5 million small business to help pay for employee health care coverage
    -Increased funding for the Violence Against Women Act

    -Eliminated Subsidies to private lender middlemen of student loans and protect student borrowers

    -Expanded Pell grants, which helps low-income students pay for college

    -Expansion of Medicaid

    -Tax credits for up to 29 million individuals to help pay for health insurance

    -Require health insurance plans to disclose how much of the premium actually goes to patient care.

    The list goes on and on.

    This is why I voted for Obama and will vote for him again in 2012.


  8. Honestly, people Obama is starting to sound real wimpy with the GOP…he is constantly giving in to these mtherfers…homeboy need to grow some BAllS and fight them.


    1. @OSTB: i agree and sorry to say but oBama seems to b a TOKEN president, was not meant to do anything. HE has much work to do and it is going to be harder but he can still make effective change despite the GRIDLOCK we are goin to WITNESS coming in DC. He needs to SToP having EASY going photo-ops and get DIRTY and wrk Harder with boths parties…GET A BACKBONE!!


    2. I agree2 ya’ll, until President Obama becomes as ruthless as th Republicans he’s destined to be a “One Term President”. he must learn that there is no such creature as a Gentleman and a Politician. And as for blacks, the only ones that I saw at the polls were older blacks. Hate me if you must, but the younger generation of blacks is either non-caring or just simply lazy.


  9. Damn SOB’s, the guy has been trying to clean up this mess but apparently, he was supposed to do that in just 22 months in office??? GTFOH. How?

    And now, you gave control back to the GOP at the house which will be their jobs to make Obama’s job impossible. So much for looking after the best interest of people.

    as for that sharpton shit, that’s a joke! he mighta had street cred on the ghetto level but never with support.


    1. RandomChick,
      Again the President is being contrite extending an “Olive Branch” to the Republicans. Now watch them snap the branch in half and blame President Obama.


  10. They better back wayyyy up off of my president, first of all I’m giving the new house of reps til noon after entering office to fix er’thang that’s wrong. #getitdone.


  11. Obama was expected to get things done the same hour he was elected – didn’t yall know that??!!!! He’s two years in and the white folk’s love fest with him is OVA!! Just like they came together to get him in there (black folks included) they came together to get the Dems OUT and come 2012 they will work even harder to get him out of office. Please don’t tell me yall didn’t see this coming. SMH……..


    1. I saw that it was coming, I was just hoping I was being overly sensative. I admit that I have a special affinty to him because he is a black man, and that is why I STARTED to support him. But the more I learned about him as a man, a leader, a politician I started to like him more.


  12. it really pisses me off when ppl complain about his performance, i mean really? its only been 2 yrs and i guess half of this nation expected him to fix the 8 yrs of destruction bush did in the first year. smh im telling you if palin is president and the tea party takes over, there will be an apocalypse! I got my shotgun ready!


    1. I agree…folks expect change to happen within 2yrs, the man is not a magician, it took 8yrs to destroy the economy, its going to take yrs to fix it. Fck the teaparties.


  13. ummmm the House was controlled by the Dems the last 2 years of the Bush admin….we are in a record deficit and Obama has done nothing but spend more of your hard earned money – and he is forcing you to buy health insurance whether you want it or not. But i guess ya’ll are ok with that based on the color of his skin.


  14. How is obama suppose to get anything done if the conservatives continue to block him? gtfo

    And americans are stupid as fuck. The conservative ideology is the reason why this country is in the shyt hole now, why would you vote the same bullshyt back into office?
