    “It gets folks discouraged. I know. I listen to some of y’all,”-- Barack "Homie" Obama

    Seriously? How folksy! He's as fucking ignorant as any of the other inner city public school educated Chillun.

    Dats da troof!

    What do the rest of y'all think? Is he talking down to his largely black and unemployed audience?

    Really?

    I think anyone can use the word y'all without looking uneducated. Obama meant nothing by it; it's just colloquial American speech. There's no need to be excessively formal in political speeches.

    Yeah he was out there chewing out the black caucas--basically calling them a bunch of whiners. Well hell--the black population living with a 16% unemployment is reason to whine.

    Then Obama looks down his nose at them--:cuckoo: I'll tell you if a white President did this to a white caucas--his poll numbers would have collapsed to ZERO--which also the number of jobs--that were created in August 2011--ZERO.

    We won't see the day when you can apprise me of something I don't know...

    ...of course I know it.

    Now, do you know what the Left-wing bible, the NYTimes, would do to a Republican who did the same???
    That's the point.
