  1. With poverty rates at an all-time high and black unemployment numbers at daunting levels, stunningly, black support for Obama remains high.

    Worse, black poverty is higher now than under President Bush. Under Obama, black unemployment rose from 12.6% in January 2010 to 16.3% as of August 1 2010. An almost 30% increase.

    After nearly two years of Obama’s reckless spending spree, (John Keynes would be proud), 43.6 million Americans – one in seven people – now live in poverty, a 51-year high. Looking deeper, these figures show that blacks, who account for only 13 percent of the population, make up 22.6 percent of the now 40.5 million Americans receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps).

    Yet, black approval of President Obama is virtually unchanged at 91% since his inauguration.

    So far, President Bush has a better track record on black upward mobility than Clinton or Obama. Regardless, Bush only enjoyed an average of about 32% approval amongst black voters two years into his first term. And we haven’t even mentioned Bush’s historic cabinet level appointments of blacks or his unprecedented AIDS funding in Africa. Much to Kanye West’s chagrin, it turns out President Bush did, indeed, care about black people.
