I know the goal is to attract the much-prized Independent for 2012. But who do they think is keeping Obama’s poll numbers afloat?2. Congresswoman Maxine Waters complains that Obama's bus trip didn't include any black communities and has this colloquy with her audience:
WATERS: We don't put pressure on the president.
CROWD: That's right!
WATERS: Let me tell you why: We don't put pressure on the president because y'all loooove the president.
CROWD: No! (grumbling, shouting)
WATERS: You loooove the president. You're very proud. You're very proud to have a black man...
CROWD: That's right! Yes, we are.
WATERS: ...first time in history of the United States of America.
WATERS: If we go after the president too hard, you going after us. When you tell us it's all right --
CROWD: It's all right! (shouting)
WATERS: When you tell us it's all right and you unleash us, and you tell us you're ready for us to have this conversation, we're ready to have the conversation!
