So let me get this straight.
Obama's Black support as it stands today is at 90%.
US Rep Alcee Hastings is threatening Obama, telling him if he doesn't show up in Florida to help Kendrick Meek then Obama should not look for him in 2012.
It seems to me that Alcee Hastings not opening his mouth FOR Obama in 2012 won't have any negative impact at all for Barack Obama in his presidential run.
The fact is that Alcee Hastings would have to be HONEST, defending the Permanent Interests of Black America by pointing out:
- The High Black Unemployment rates
- The correlation between popular Progressive Democrat control over a district and tepid local economic productivity for Black people
- Long running Educational issues despite favorable people in place
In summary - For Alcee Hastings to hurt Obama he would have to put the Black community's Permanent Interests over the interests of the Democratic Party and Barack Obama.
Isn't this ironic?
It stands in line with my observations about how to debate a Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chaser: The best way to silence them is to take the conversation into the places where they have the most exclusive control instead of allowing them to mount their carrot upon my head, selling me on the future IF we agree to stay silence on the present issues in the name of UNITY.
Black lawmakers are prodding the White House to get more involved in Florida Senate hopeful Kendrick Meek's campaign amid growing concern that less-than-robust backing from President Barack Obama will signal to Democrats that it’s all right to help independent Charlie Crist.
Rep. Alcee Hastings, a Florida Democrat, told POLITICO Thursday that he might not work for Obama's reelection if the president doesn't get into gear for Meek — a four-term House member seeking to become the first black politician elected to the Senate since President Obama won in Illinois in 2004.
"If they do not step up their support for Kendrick, then they cannot expect that I and my allies will support them in 2012," Hastings said, after describing the West Wing's treatment of Meek as "poor."
Hastings and Meek were among a cadre of Sunshine State congressional members who worked against Obama in the presidential races and who stayed with Hillary Clinton until long after it was clear she had no path to victory.
