An Answer for Congresswoman Waters
Congresswoman Maxine Waters is perplexed as to why President Obama has not been campaigning in any black neighborhoods. I'm not sure why she can't see it. The reason is extraordinarily obvious: he doesn't have to.
The President's schedule is packed. Between golf, fund raising and vacations, there isn't much time left over. So when he embarks on tours he wants to make sure he's addressing the independents that are going to be the difference between re-election and a pink slip. There are few, if any, independents in the black neighborhoods. He already has a 90% approval rating there so there's no one to persuade.
When will the President swing by her district? A prediction: when he needs campaign money or right before the election to make sure they get out and vote.
