Maybe someone should tell Obama he already has all the black votes? Does he really think associating with an ultra-racist like Sharpton is going to help sway any white voters? The blind, liberal, sheep will always follow, but who does he think hes gaining with a move like this?
President Obama is making his second visit to the city in as many weeks - and is calling upon an unlikely ally to shore up the support of his political base.
Obama will be speaking Wednesday for the first time as commander in chief at the annual convention of the National Action Network and standing with its founder, the Rev. Al Sharpton - whom the President largely ignored before his 2008 election.
The symbolic speech at the Sheraton in midtown - coming just days after the President held two events in Harlem - indicates that Obama, who is battling slipping poll numbers, is trying to bolster his standing among African-Americans, political scientists said.
"It proves again that 2012 will be very different than 2008," said Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia. "Then, Obama was very wary of the race issue and of being labeled as a 'black candidate.'"
"But some of the enthusiasm surrounding that election has faded," said Sabato. "He needs an injection of energy and Sharpton can provide some of that, at least in the black community."
Let him screw his chances of getting reelected up.
That seems to be the motto for the incumbents, as well as potential candidates who have or are seriously considering throwing their hat in the ring.
2012 election ballots are beginning to take shape as a laundry list of douchebaggery.
