“President Was in the Election”
U.S. Senator Ben Cardin admitted what was common knowledge. After meeting with The Frederick News-Post editorial board, the Maryland Democrat said: “The president was in the election.”
Of course, President Barack Obama’s color had much to do with Republicans taking Capitol Hill’s bodies, the Senate and the House of Representatives. The problem rests with the voters. The electorate does not like having African Americans above them, not in the social status.
Immigration particularly hurts. The Caucasians in the general population fear people from the Latin American countries. No need to worry: Hispanics number only 35 million members. Blacks are 34 million, according to my figuring: African-Americans are losing numbers. Never mind: darkness has a frightful aspect for white people, including me.
Speaker of the House John Boehner (OH) has warned the administration: He’s addressing immigration first. Ohio is a long way from New Orleans. My boyhood haunts certainly reveals émigrés, many of them Latinos. Furthermore, I went to boarding school attended particularly by Cubans – with a Mexican boy dropped into the mix. Guatemalans are counted my friends now.
Being from the Deep South, Negroes were present, now with their latter names: African Americans. I can number people of dusky hue among my closest acquaintances, which to say Negroes are counted among my best friends – so can Mr. Cardin. Certainly the senator couldn’t get elected – and re-elected – without black voters.
Barack Obama is peculiar to his generation. I wouldn’t guess before his election to the Oval Office that he would get in. Congressman Boehner still can’t believe an African American is in the White House. Still, he’s there.
Quelle domage! What a pity!
