Obama Laments: The Black Vote ‘Not as Solid as it Needs to Be’

Written by Philip Hodges

Thanks to groups like Project Veritas and WikiLeaks, we have a pretty clear picture of what Democrat operatives think – in private, of course – of blacks and other minorities. They don’t care about them as people. They simply need them as voters. And they know what attracts them the most – offer them “free” stuff.

Once these Democrats are in office – thanks in large part to hoodwinked minority voters – they end up not following through with their promises. Things actually get worse for minorities, and racial tension increases.

Thankfully, not every minority voter has fallen for the political platitudes of Democrats. But that also makes things a little harder for the Democrats. According to the President, the black vote isn’t as “solid” as it needs to be.

Here’s what he said in an interview on the Tom Joyner Morning Show:

“Now I have a favor for you. And that is that I have 7 days to determine whether I have an outstanding candidate in my Secretary of State and who has pledged and committed to continue the progress we’ve made on jobs, and making sure kids can go to college, and early childhood education, and healthcare, or we’ve got somebody whose only agenda is to reverse everything that I’ve done over the last 8 years. To reverse everything that Michelle has done over the last 8 years. And I need you and everybody who is listening to make it their sole focus over the next 7 days that every single person is out there voting.

“I’m going to be honest with you right now, because we track, we’ve got early voting, we’ve got all kinds of metrics to see what’s going on, and right now, the Latino vote is up. The overall vote is up. But the African-American vote right now is not as solid as it needs to be.

“And I know that a lot of people in the barbershops and the beauty salons and in the neighborhoods who are saying to themselves, ‘Well, you know, we love Barack. We especially love Michelle. And so it was exciting and now we’re not excited as much.’ You know what? I need everybody to understand that everything we’ve done is dependent on me being able to pass the baton to somebody who believes in the same things that I believe in. So if you really care about my presidency and what we’ve accomplished, then you are going to go out and vote.”
