The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) sponsored the “For the People Jobs Fair” in Detroit. Anyone want to guess what that cost the American taxpayer? In the video below Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) listen to an angry crowd demanding jobs. The ethically-challenged Waters tells the crowd when they tell her it’s “all right,” and when they “unleash” her, they (CBC) is “ready to have the conversation.” “When you tell us it’s time to let go, we’ll let go.” They are not her constituents, but never mind. Stay with the video because Maxine-clips are shown throughout, and she gives her voters a caution: Obama is the first Black president in United State history, and if we go after him, they will come after us (“they” meaning anyone not Black will come after Blacks?). Conyers is demanding a meeting with Obama. Maybe he will get a paid trip to Martha’s Vineyard.
Wonder if Waters’ constituents ever think about her threatening to nationalize the oil industry? Or her party’s drilling moratorium in Gulf states – 190,000 jobs ready to be created right now! Or how she pushed to provide loans for homes many could not afford? Or the 150 jobs at Johnson Controls paid for with $300 Million in Stimulus funds – cost to taxpayer: $2 Million per job, all courtesy of her President? Or how about the $18 Million cost to erect StimulusWebsiteRecovery.org, maintained by Democrats? Or Obama’s last budget which received zero votes in the Democrat-held Senate? And specifically related to jobs and the lack of them, $108.7 Billion cost in 2011 of new regulations, courtesy of Waters’ party and the first Black President of the United States?
Do her voters give a flip?
Can’t wait to see how Maxine and John go after Barack Obama.
UPDATE: I’m hearing from Rush Limbaugh that at the Jobs Fair, attendees were asking why Obama’s bus tour was not going through any Black communities.
