Obama's Speech to Congressional Black Caucus (Video)

There has been so much angst by folks about the remarks that President Obama gave to the Congressional Black Caucus folks over the weekend. He talked about a number of things including the American Jobs Act. He was in a fiery mode. Some call it his 'campaign' mode. Personally, I like this flow from him ... much better than trying to work with the folks on the other side of the aisle who simply 'hate' the guy.

Obama received about 95% of the African American vote in his 2008 election. He is polling much lower right now. I guess that Black folks are not feeling the love from his administration as much this year as they did in the past. 16% unemployment in the Black community is a big reason for the decline in popularity. I suspect that some are wondering if the situation would be any different under a President Mitt Romney or President Rick Perry.

What did you think about his speech to the Congressional Black Caucus folks?
