But that's exactly how many American minorities work in the Democratic urban enclaves of welfare moms and crackheads! Obama going bare knuckles? It's more like King Leonides booting a drunken Persian down a crumbling stairwell.
Reporting from Washington — A Republican majority in Congress would mean "hand-to-hand combat" on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy, President Obama warned Wednesday.
Speaking on Michael Baisden's syndicated radio show, Obama also made a direct appeal to African Americans about the importance of the November vote, even though he's not on the ballot himself.
The reason we won [in 2008] is because young people, African Americans, Latinos -- people who traditionally don't vote in high numbers -- voted in record numbers. We've got to have that same kind of turnout in this election," he said. "If we think that we can just vote one time, then we have a nice party at Obama's inauguration, and then we can kind of sit back and suddenly everything's going to change – that's just not how it works."
And so it is. Come my friends, let's revisit the minority reactions to Obama's Presidential election. How visions of hard work and sacrifice filled their hearts and heads as Obama ascended the throne.
Remember the Detroit rally cry? "OBAMA MONEY!"
"Everybody in the barbershops, the beauty shops, and at work -- everybody's got to understand: This is a huge election," he said. "If we turn out in strong numbers, then we will do fine. If we do not, if we are depressed and decide, well, you know, Barack's not running right now, so I'm just going to stay home, then I'm going to have my hands full up here on Capitol Hill."
Days before the release of a key jobs report, Obama said most of the job losses his administration gets blamed for occurred before "any of my economic plans were put into place," and that the country is still "experiencing the hangover from the misguided policies" of the last decade.
Obama said a big voter turnout was vital, both to counter millions of dollars being spent by outside groups and the enthusiasm Republicans have demonstrated.
Barry will be blaming Bush until the Second Coming. Christ will meet us in the air and it will be George's fault that no one has a chute.
Barry is Busted. No Blame. No Balls. And now ... No Bounce.
Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady said Thursday that Obama has "no coattails," even in his home state.
"In fact, both the appearance of the president and Rahm Emanuel popping his head up has done a lot to motivate our base," he said.
Now I'm getting all tingly.
