While Congressional Democrat candidates have quarantined their historically-unpopular standard bearer from the campaign trail, one former Democrat mayor — believing that a mouth is a terrible thing to waste — has a Jim-Crow-Dandy idea to segregate President Obama at Blacks-Only microphones. According to The New York Times…
“I’d have Obama on an evangelistic schedule of black churches all over the country,” said Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco. “I think he really should go to the black base. I don’t think there’s any other place I would trust he wouldn’t create an adverse reaction rather than a positive reaction.”
This is the final paragraph in a doleful series of quotes from Democrats trying to spin Obama’s intra-party pariah status. But the Times reporter cocks an eyebrow, noting that the president “of the People,” who used to draw Jay-Z-sized crowds to arenas, now nibbles pâté de foie gras as he mingles with the one-percenters, who still think access to the president means something.
But all of this should not make you think that Obama’s at home, sitting on the sofa, flipping through the Vine app on his smartphone. After all, he’s got his hands full making anti-Democrat attack ads for Republican candidates.
