Obama Would Never Tell the Jews or Gays to Stop Complaining

MAXINE WATERS IS MIFFED: ‘I DON’T KNOW WHO HE THOUGHT HE WAS TALKING TO!’

I’m gonna go out on a limb here Maxine; Obama “thought” he was talking to YOU, that’s who — and the other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, as well. Never one to avoid idiotic trouble, Waters was in a snit Monday over a statement her president made to the crowd at the annual CBC awards banquet Saturday evening:

“Shake it off. Stop complainin’. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’. We are goin’ to press on. We have work to do.”

As is her habit, Waters only opens her mouth to change feet. Of Obama’s comments, poor Maxine whined:

“I found that language a bit curious because the president spoke to the Hispanic caucus, and certainly they are pushing him on immigration despite the fact that he has appointed Sotomayor to Supreme Court. He certainly didn’t tell them to stop complaining.”

Next, she moved on to the Jews and the gays:

“And he never would say that to the gay and lesbian community who really pushed him on ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ or even in a speech to AIPAC, he would never say to the Jewish community, ‘Stop complaining about Israel.’ So I don’t know who he was talking to because we are certainly not complaining. We are working. We support him and we are protecting that base because we want people to be enthusiastic about him when that election rolls around.”

After running out of other minorities to cry about, Waters said:

“We helped him to get energized so he can deal with the concerns of the black community. I think he heard us. Some of his words were not appropriate and surprised me a little bit, and I was curious about him, but he certainly heard us.”

Good to know that you helped him “to get organized” so he could deal with the concerns of the black community, Maxine. And if a white congressman had said, “we helped George Bush get energized so he can deal the concerns of the white community”? Yeah, I know; all hell would have broken loose. Or perhaps there should be a Congressional White Caucus, Maxine? How would that work for ya?

There’s never a dull moment with the loony left, is there? One minute they’re calling the AP racist for leaving the “gs” off the words in a report on an Obama speech in which he did, in fact, omit the “gs”; the next minute they’re suggesting that Obama singled out blacks for a trip behind the woodshed, therefore qualifying him as racist too.

I guess I forgot that it’s possible for blacks to be guilty of racism against other blacks, although I do seem to remember reports of Oreo cookies being thrown at Michael Steele during the 2002 Maryland gubernatorial campaign. Go figure.

Your president has other ways to deal with “the Jews,” Maxine; at least he hasn’t sold you out to the Palestinians.
