A Democrat in Congress is claiming that Obama is being treated badly in the debt ceiling issue because he is black. Yep, a shocker that a Democrat has thrown the race card once again. Shelia Jackson Lee, a black Congresswoman, is all about stirring up the race pot by insisting that Obama is being treated differently than any other president and there is only one difference, he is black.
“I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president — only this one, only this one — has received the kind of attacks and disagreement and inability to work, only this one,” said Jackson Lee from the House floor.
“Read between the lines,” she continued. “What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?” The Hill
I guess this moron was in a coma during the eight years George Bush was president. Bush was maligned by everyone including Lee. Can we conclude that she treated him this way because he is white? There is more than one difference between Obama and those who came before him. Those men were trying to solve the nation’s problems while Obama is adding to them. He is inexperienced and carries an air of entitlement even though he had accomplished little prior to being immaculated.
Yes Ms. Lee, the debt ceiling has been raised scores of times in the past. This begs the question; why even have a debt ceiling in the first place? If you morons are not going to honor the limit then why even have it? It is in place to keep you people (members of Congress for the intellectually challenged race baiters) from spending us into poverty. Looks like it might be a bit too late because the ceiling has been raised and never lowered.
As an aside, the 14th Amendment states legal debt authorized by law shall not be questioned. We do not have to raise the debt limit to pay our obligations on borrowed money. It is simply not an issue here.
Yes, you can claim that people oppose the raising of the debt limit because Obama is black but before you hold firm to that claim perhaps it would be helpful if you are reintroduced to the words of then Senator Obama when Bush wanted to raise the debt ceiling:
The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. Sodahead.com
Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling and rightly stated that we are saddling future generations with debt. That is just as true today as it was when the high and mighty Obama voted against raising the limit. And it is just as true today that the fact we are discussing this issue is a sign of leadership failure.
Obama has failed to lead and this is by his own standard.
So before Ms. Lee gets her granny panties in a wad she should revisit what her messiah Obama said in 2006. Perhaps she would do well to actually have facts and ensure her brain is working before she opens her mouth.
But then again, if she did that she would not be able to throw out the race card and that is the trump card for Democrats.
Never surrender, never submit.
