    Oh Fudge, There's Trouble In Osambotards Future!

     

    CBC's Fudge Escalates Push for Obama Cabinet Diversity

    Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia L. Fudge is escalating her campaign to urge President Barack Obama to pick African Americans for his cabinet, publicly releasing a letter that slams the first black president for a lack of diversity among his closest advisers.

    “The people you have chosen to appoint in this new term have hardly been reflective of this country’s diversity,” the Ohio Democrat said in the March 11 letter.

    Fudge adds that CBC members’ offices have received phone calls from angry constituents questioning why Obama hasn’t nominated anyone with the ability “to speak to the unique needs of African Americans. Their ire is compounded by the overwhelming support you’ve received from the African American community.”

    By releasing the letter, Fudge is escalating a campaign by the CBC to push Obama on his cabinet diversity and continuing to demonstrate her willingness to push Obama aggressively to embrace her group’s priorities.

    The Ohio Democrat previously moved to promote three CBC members for open Cabinet positions, highlighting a long-standing sore spot in the relationship between the CBC and the president, who was a member of the group during his one Senate term.

    Obama, in turn, dispatched top aide Valerie Jarrett for her first Capitol Hill meeting of the second term to meet with the CBC for a State of the Union preview and listening session with members.

    White House officials have assured CBC leaders that they will be pleased with future decisions. But Fudge apparently has lost patience, hence the letter Monday.

    In the letter to Obama, Fudge said the CBC “looks forward to meeting with you to discuss this and other pressing issues.” CBC spokeswoman Ayofemi Kirby said a meeting with Obama has been requested, but no answer has yet come back from the White House.

    • Oh my OLD MAN, you sound like Bush, the inferior, driving down the road singing while losing 850,000 jobs per month X 13 months:

      Well, I don't care if it rains or freezes
      Long as I have my plastic Jesus
      Riding on the dashboard of my car
      I could go a hundred miles an hour
      Long as I got the almighty power
      Glued up there with my pair of fuzzy dice

      {Refrain - repeat between verses}
      Plastic Jesus, plastic Jesus
      Riding on the dashboard of my car
      Through all trials and tribulations
      We will travel every nation
      With my plastic Jesus I'll go far

      I don't care if it rains or snowses
      Long as I got my plastic Moses
      Riding on the dashboard of my car
      Through all trials and tribulations
      We will travel every nation
      Me and plastic Moses will go far

      I don't care if it rains or freezes
      As long as I've got my plastic Jesus
      Glued to the dashboard of my car
      You can buy Him phosphorescent
      Glows in the dark, He's pink and pleasant
      Take Him with you when you're travelling far

      I don't care if it's dark or scary
      Long as I have magnetic Mary
      Ridin' on the dashboard of my car
      I feel I'm protected amply
      I've got the whole damn holy family
      Riding on the dashboard of my car

      You can buy a sweet Madonna
      Dressed in rhinestones sitting on a
      Pedestal of abalone shell
      Goin' ninety, I'm not wary
      'Cause I've got my virgin Mary
      Guaranteeing I won't go to Hell

      I don't care what they say, I'm gonna
      Keep on prayin' to that pink Madonna
      Melted to the dashboard of my car
      Goin' ninety, I'm not wary
      'Cause I've got my Virgin Mary
      Guaranteeing I won't go to Hell

      I don't care if it bumps or jostles
      Long as I got the twelve apostles
      Bolted to the dashboard of my car
      Don't I have a pious mess
      Such a crowd of holiness
      Strung across the dashboard of my car

      When pedestrians try to cross
      I let them know who's boss
      I never blow my horn or give them warning
      I ride all over town
      Trying to run them down
      And it's seldom that they live to see the morning

      {As refrain}
      Plastic Jesus, plastic Jesus
      Riding on the dashboar

      • Gfo, you must be one of those libiots who follow the lemmings thoughts of what happened in the 2000's under Bush. All was good until housing imploded due to Barney and Chris thinking everyone needed to be a homeowner regardless of ability to pay a mortgage. John Snow, treasury secretary under Bush went before Congress 17 times warning of the coming housing implosion.
        The Fed had the printing presses rolling overtime, thinking "happy days are here again", the "Great Society" has returned, and "a chicken in every pot" will live on.
        Fannie and Freddie were happy in their bliss and Franklin Raines wallored in his $100 million golden parachute.
        It was a perfect storm for the housing market to implode with Bush getting the blame, but the donkeys were responsible with their inane regulations and foolish thoughts that all was well.
        Why are. Libiots such idiots. But I digress.
