It's funny how so many Black liberals still fail to realize that Barack Obama doesn't care about Black people. Black liberals thought that since Barry looks like them, sometimes acts "Black" (i.e. the fist-bumps, shout-outs, occasional use of Ebonics, etc.) and what with their overwhelming support for Barry in last year's Presidential election, that they could expect the Commander-in-Chief to....yunno, look out for them a little bit. But so far Barry has shown that he's way more concerned about the white, liberal agenda (i.e. climate change, gay "rights", ObamaCare, etc.) than the Blacks (i.e. black-on-black crime, poverty, lack of education, racism, etc.). Indeed, almost a year into his presidency and Barack Obama has shown himself to be no different than his white predecessors as far as liberal Democrat politicians go--pimping Blacks for votes while on the campaign trail and then leaving them hanging once they get elected. About time Black liberals wake up to the fact that the "First Black President" could care less about the title.
The city's first African-American mayor yesterday blamed the country's first black president for leaving Bill Thompson in the dust in the mayoral race.
"The president should have done more. He found time to go to Virginia, he found time to go to New Jersey and he should have been here," ex-Mayor David Dinkins told The Post yesterday.
Dinkins, who held office from 1990 through 1993, was referring to Obama's high-profile role in two tight gubernatorial races that Democrats ended up losing.
By comparison, the president barely got involved in the city's mayoral race, which ended up far closer than expectations. Thompson lost by a mere 5 percentage points, despite being vastly outspent by Mayor Bloomberg.
