Gee, a group of people that monolithically vote for a single political party and aren't big $$$ contributors got lip service and little action from politicians?

Shocking. Just shocking.

Meanwhile, the latino vote is being pursued like the last bag of meth in a trailer park.

If you are the cow giving away free milk....don't cry about it....it's your own dang fault.

Obama has been a failure. That's with the media and Hollywood on his bandwagon since day 1...........even my liberal friends are disappointed with him.

Yes, by all means insult them while cheering that they are not happy with the government. I bet you do not even see the problem with your post, those of your ilk rarely do.

If it wasn't for redistricting, you couldn't even get elected dog catcher.
When are you guys going to look in the mirror and see the writing on the wall?

Republican identification lowest in at least 25 years

Not since 1983, when Gallup was still conducting interviews face to face, has a lower percentage of Americans, 24%, identified as Republicans than is the case now.
Forty-two percent of Americans, on average, identified as political independents in 2013, the highest Gallup has measured since it began conducting interviews by telephone 25 years ago. Meanwhile, Republican identification fell to 25%, the lowest over that time span. At 31%, Democratic identification is unchanged from the last four years
Americans' increasing shift to independent status has come more at the expense of the Republican Party than the Democratic Party. Republican identification peaked at 34% in 2004, the year George W. Bush won a second term in office. Since then, it has fallen nine percentage points, with most of that decline coming during Bush's troubled second term. When he left office, Republican identification was down to 28%. It has declined or stagnated since then,
I guess you aren't aware that Independents sprung for Mitt Romney in droves in 2012, right? Republicans don't have an Independents problem.

Can we have a sweep. Starting with liar Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Holder, and the whole lot of them.

Residents in Chicago have a good point. He has turned his attention to the illegal plight. And has totally ignored the plight of so many black communities.

Is this what they get, for voting for him, yes, but still sad to see that Obama chooses, law breakers who care not about our laws, over the needs and want of our citizens.

My educated black friends who own their own businesses, can't stand Obama, they got it right, and feel he is harming all of us.

Wrong again, that is what you get when the other Party runs candidates that are unacceptable as an alternative, McCain(McSame)/Palin(OMG) - Romney(Obama Lite), really? Excuses excuses, fit your own house and then just maybe people will give your candidates serious consideration.

Obama is very perplexed, He has watched "Good Times: The Complete Series" via Netflix several times now and thought he understood what was going on.

Then why did you pick him over Hillary? But now all of the sudden she's the best thing since sliced bread.

Oh, and they attacked the Hillary\Bill camp as being racist any chance they could.

You should have elected Hillary in 2008 and given Obama 8 years to gain experience.

Instead, largely because he was hipper, younger and more charismatic....and lets not mince words...able to carry a huge chunk of the black vote pretty much due to his pigmentation...we got Obama instead of Hillary.

P.S. You can always protest vote 3rd party or just not vote if you are unhappy with the choices presented to you. For example, if you care strongly about environmental issues and were angry over Obama's appointment of the Monsanto CEO to head the FDA.....and still support him because the republicans would be worse....then you are rewarding bad behavior and getting milked for free. If you don't hold your candidates accountable you are part of the problem.

So I guess Republicans are down how Obama isn't helping black people.
