Emanuel Cleaver: CBC Would Probably Be Marching on the White House if Obama Wasn’t President

Forget about the implied “we’re not going to march on the White House because of the color of the president” part and try to focus on what is tantamount to an admission that the policies embraced by this administration have been disastrous.

From The Hill by way of the Miami Herald:

Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).

“If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. “There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”

During the 2007-2008 primary season, Emanuel Cleaver endorsed Hillary, so possibly it’s not all about race. But now that I think about it, Hillary is the wife of the first black president, so maybe that takes us back to square one.

It’s a continual source of bemusement when Democrats in Congress whose votes have allowed Obama to follow this very path complain about where that path has taken the country — and then somehow blame the Tea Party.
