obama travels to NY today on our thousands of tax payer dollars to meet with al sharpton to “celebrate” the anniversary of the latter’s “national” action organization. The White House immediately put out a press release that this meeting had nothing at all to do with obama’s hopes for re-election. Our tax payer money is being wasted whether obama travels in AirForce One, helicopter or SUV LIMO. obama the HYPOCRIT, lectures the American people on how to save energy while he wastes it. How great will New Yorkers feel about the trip as they wait in traffic and find pedestrian movement restricted?
It is a disgrace that obama felt that it was more important to meet with sharpton, a self promoted minister (of what?) since sharpton represents such a small minority of people in Harlem. Sharpton has also been under scrutiny for alleged failure to pay taxes, parking tickets, and mis-use of “organization” funds which is hardly recognized as a national organization. No one but liberals have failed to recall Sharpton’s complicity in the Tawana Brawley case a number of years ago, along with sticking his nose in the defense of any member of certain minorities who may have been accused of a crime. If obama is not going to Harlem to promote his candidacy, then why is he really there? I don’t believe it is just to break bread with a brother.
Or is it to reinforce the fact that he is a black man. America has accepted the fact that obama is black (his mother was white). We just have not accepted the fact that he has identified his legal place of birth, making his bid for re-election EXTREMELY presumptuous.
