Like on health care reform — instead of telling Americans exactly what he wanted in a health care bill, President Obama left it up to lawmakers. Republicans used the President’s strategy to create fear and confusion among voters. It also fueled the tea party movement.
All is not lost. For some, there is still a sense change will come. Recent polls show overwhelming support for the President remains high among African-Americans, even though standing in the unemployment line.

For years, Carol Costello’s been using that phrase to justify every stupid premise she wanted to discuss. I could say, “Some people think Carol Costello is a twit.” I’m pretty sure she’d demand to know who those people were.
And as for African Americans showing overwhelming support for Barack Obama, even while standing in an unemployment line, I’d be willing to bet Carol Costello doesn’t know many. If she did, maybe she could hook some up with a job at CNN.
