20 Things The ‘Hood Expects Of President Obama

President Obama

Last month, I was a participant on a number of panels by The League of Young Voters, a conglomerate of some of most intelligent, grounded, and talented group of people I’ve come to know. However, whenever the topic of Obama came up sh*t got a little heated and everyone had the Rock’s eyebrow. Now granted, from a statistical standpoint most of these panelists were more equipped than I was. Still, when it came to the numbers I fell back. When the topic of Obama’s obligation to the Black and Latino community bent the corner, I had plenty to say, because now they were firmly planted on my block.

See, quite a few of us feel that President Obama is not obligated to do anything specifically for the Black and Latino community. I’ve heard, “He is not just the President of BLACK people, he is the president of all people,” or “Obama doesn’t control local politics.” And there is my all-time favorite: “So what you gonna do? Vote for Romney?” Yes, these are true statements – well, not the Romney bullsh*t. I would slap box with a bear before voting for Romney, but I do expect some things from my President, especially if he is a P.O.C. (President of Color)

Massachusetts Senate race moves to ‘lean Democratic’

As the map above shows, if Republicans don’t hold Massachusetts, the prospect of seizing back the Senate majority looks decidedly daunting. The GOP would need to win all six tossup races just to gain a 50-50 tie in the Senate (assuming every state that is currently red or blue on our map stays that way). If President Obama wins reelection, 50-50 means Democrats would still control the upper chamber.  (On the map, yellow states are “tossup” races, the light blue and red ones are “lean” Democratic and Republican contests, and the dark blue and red states are “solid” Democratic and Republican races.)

Top Romney aide Sununu suggests Powell endorsed Obama because he’s black

Top Romney aide Sununu suggests Powell endorsed Obama because he’s black

John Sununu, a top adviser to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, suggested Thursday that Colin Powell endorsed President Obama because both men are African-American.

Asked Thursday on CNN about Powell’s endorsement, Sununu said the endorsement might be for reasons other than policy.

“Frankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that’s an endorsement based on issues or whether he’s got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama,” Sununu said.

Asked what those might be, Sununu pointed to race.
