Some Blacks Now Have Doubts About Obama
by Star Parker at Townhall.com
Americans of all political persuasions agree that the nation has problems. Big problems.
And here’s where we all part company. The political left, who now control our government, thinks we need more government — a lot more. Those on the right see our problems as the result of excess government and want to move things in the opposite direction.
The fact that Democrats, with their man in the White House, and control of both houses of Congress, are having difficulty getting their big government programs passed says something about the strength of the grass roots push back now taking place.
Stirring is even occurring among blacks.
According to the Pew Research Center, the president’s approval rating nationwide is now 10 points lower than last April. Included in this is a three-point drop in his approval among blacks.
You might say, Star, a drop in approval ratings among blacks from 95 percent to 92 percent is trivial. But I say not so.
If we assume this reflects the 16 million blacks who voted for Obama last November, a three point shift means there are about a half million blacks who now have buyer’s remorse.
