WASHINGTON (AP) - In a fiery summons to an important voting block, President Barack Obama told blacks on Saturday to quit crying and complaining and "put on your marching shoes" to follow him into battle for jobs and opportunity.
And though he didn't say it directly, for a second term, too.
Obama's speech to the annual awards dinner of the Congressional Black Caucus was his answer to increasingly vocal griping from black leaders that he's been giving away too much in talks with Republicans -- and not doing enough to fight black unemployment, which is nearly double the national average at 16.7 percent.
Blacks are complaining? They feel that Barry hasn't done enough (OR ANYTHING) to "FIGHT UNEMPLOYMENT"??
Good! Why should they be different from the rest of us!
