There is an old saying:

NEVER BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU

And the black voters have not forgotten that missive...

Thanks for all the "objective" criticism, I'll be sure to be thinking about it as I vote for him a second time.

Elect whoever y'all want. I was broke under Bush, I'm broke under Obama, and I'm gonna be broke under the next fool.

You have a really myopic view on what matters. Fortunately most voters don't see things that way. Even when it happened it only gave him a minor bump in approval rating, by the time the elections happen it will be years old news and won't make any difference in the election.
