But...you just said it was....so, what is it? A hidden agenda, or an open agenda???No it isn't.
Only rightwingers take "cheap shots" in this glorious forum.The agenda is to take another cheap shot at Obama, as is the agenda of the majority of threads started here by the right
.You telegraph every move you make
And yet...you keep getting the wrong message, hearing only what you want to hear.
You tend to do that a lot. It is much easier being a "Winner," when you never actually set up the game, but procalim victory anyways. (I'm going to win the Heisman Trophy next year. Nah, I'm not going to actually play any football, but, I'm the best Quarterback in the nation.....)If this were chess I could just call "checkmate" before the board was even set up.
All this conservative concern for black communities.
"I have written several columns about Obama’s political decision to ignore the Black community because he knows they have nowhere else to go. I have also criticized him for his lack of understanding about business, especially minority business. So, it came as no surprise to me when Bloomberg News recently came out with its “minority report” that further indicated Obama’s lack of concern for the small and minority business community. This report is an ominous indicator of the state of small and minority business under the Obama administration.
According to Bloomberg News, “U.S. government contracts to Black-and Hispanic-owned small businesses fell last year for the first time in a decade, declining at a sharper rate than awards to all companies.
The BGOV Barometer shows contracts to the Black-owned firms dropped eight percent to $7.12 billion in the fiscal year that ended September 30 compared to fiscal 2010. Awards to Hispanic-owned businesses decreased seven percent to $7.89 billion, according to federal procurement data compiled by Bloomberg.
Contracts to the two minority groups fell at a faster pace than all contracts, which dipped one percent as the U.S. government slowed spending to help reduce the federal deficit. The gap may reflect stiffer competition over a shrinking pool of revenue and the recent recession’s greater impact on Black and Hispanic firms.
The only thing sadder than the Bloomberg report is the reaction by those “supposed” leaders in the minority community. “This is an alarming report and hopefully the people of good will are going to recommit themselves to erasing the vestiges of exclusion, which obviously impact small businesses,” said Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO)."
Obama's Minority Business Report: Are Republicans Better For Small Business
You don't honestly expect me to read that propaganda do you?
Didn't Obama recently announce that he was channeling federal aid to impoverish communities? Ya know, during the SOTU thingy. He can't ever even bring up race, because every time he does, he's called a racist. But, here ya go.
