When the last Democrat was in the White House, Bill Clinton, there was a lot that I disagreed with. He brought the crime bill, that brought back the death penalty in the federal government. He brought the welfare reform bill, which hurt, in my opinion, a lot of our communities. He did things that I felt was detrimental to our community. Even had an arch-conservative, Dick Morris, run his re-election. You said nothing! You didn’t have any kind of loud voice. Now, you go from who some of you call a black president to a real black president, and you talk about “unleash us” and let me at ‘em and all of that. And then when he responds you act like he hurt your feelings or he doesn’t know who he’s talking to. Let’s be fair: if you gave a pass in the past, why are you so vociferous now? I’m not telling you to shut up. I’m telling you don’t make some of us have to speak up!
Al Sharpton's response to the criticism coming from the Congressional Black Caucus.
Hmm, when exactly did Obama become the "real" black president? Because it wasn't all that long ago that Sharpton said this:
"just because you're our color doesn't make you our kind."Or maybe I am mistaken that he saying that Obama was not "black" enough.
"what's his embrace of our agenda?"Or maybe not.
Also - Dick Morris is an Arch conservative? Who knew?
