“blood pressure meds, cholesterol meds ect.... require a co-pay. diabetics require insulin. they require a co-pay. you have a choice to procreate and you have options to prevent pregnancy. others don't have a choice. they need the meds or they will die. what is so difficult for you to understand?”

“Do you really not understand th cost effectiveness of insurance covering contraceptives with no co pay as opposed to paying over $10,000 to bring an unwanted pregnancy to term, not to mention the cost on society? Insurance premiums are lower for policies that cover contraceptives than for those that do not. How much extra are you willing to pay a month to make sure that women are denied coverage for their basic healthcare needs?”

“I come from the Detroit area and would love to see the city revitalized. with corporate and government funds, they could really do this. they would have to have a comprehensive plan to undergo such a feat. I would like to see them preserve some of the equipment from old factories, refurbish them and create green areas around them. many of the people living in the city have moved to the surrounding burbs. it won't be long until those area will need to be propped up, unfortunately. the city needs to encourage new business that will provide jobs and retraining of employees.”

Its natural and if you were black, you would have done the same - you can deny it all you want but thats the truth. Thats the number one reason that Hillary will win - because women of BOTH parties will help you - and that includes me as well - she is smart smart smart - and she will do a good job - and we need a woman president in this country - she could hardly do worse of generations of men!”

“I almost see your point! But keep in mind that the President is ONE person. I do not know where you are from, but when you and others in your community ELECTED your Senator and Representatives, you elected them to do their best to aid this country---regardless as to who, or who is not, President!
And as you said: "He and the Dems"! So, someone---a majority----had to agree with the policy (whatever it was)
So keep in mind that this is a Representative Republic---not a true Democracy! Meaning the President can do very very little by himself---and he should NOT have that power (that would be a dictatorship!)
But let's face it, once we elect them, and they board that flight to Washington, we then have little say in what is done! Most of the time our role then becomes complaining and finger pointing!”

“no one suggested that all blacks are low income but certainly, the ones that are have not benefitted through their vote. you can't deny that !! secondly, this article addresses the black vote where he undoubtedly did receive the lion share of votes. I asked a simple question. did the color of his skin influence the black voters? don't tell me it didn't.”

“Reread your post and you'll see how you communicated poorly on point 1. With regard to point 2, I am countering that many also voted against the GOP, not just for the president. Note that Bill Clinton received 83% of the African American vote in 1992 when the GOP was far less vitriolic toward them.”

“Probably 97 percent of Greek americans voted for Spiro Agnew a Republican and then switched and voted for Michael Dukakis - and the Irish voted for Kennedy and on and on - it doesnt mean anything thats a natural thing to do”

kenhamlett on Nov 16, 2013 at 12:50:32

“Most Blacks had no reason to believe, before President Obama, that they would see a Black candidate for President -- much less a Black President -- in their lifetimes. That led to an unprecedented level of support for the President in the Black community. For once, they had the opportunity to vote for a presidential candidate with whom they could directly identify. I do not find that surprising, and I do not find it racist or improper. It was simply a unique point in history. The President certainly benefited from it, but, that support has been offset by the determined and unprecedented group of individuals on the other end of the political spectrum who have refused to accept his elections, refused to offer him any respect or courtesy (all Presidents before him received those things, even from their political enemies), questioned his eligibility for office, and made ongoing outrageous accusations about his religious beliefs. So, any benefit he accrued from those who shared his race was balanced by those who seem unable to accept a Black President. Through it all, the President and First Lady have declined to complain or make counter-charges. I was not an initial Obama supporter, though I am a Democrat. It was actually the President's poise in withstanding and handling the attacks against his character and his family that first warmed me to him.”

“have you ever voted for someone who wasn't white? didn't think so. how you account for that?”

ooc5477 on Nov 16, 2013 at 12:46:08

“I agree with you, as far as I can see he has not done anything for low income Blacks, not their community.
But there is a very good reason for that----IT IS NOT IN HIS POWERS AS PRESIDENT TO DO ANYTHING!!!
The President has some limited powers as President of the United States, but he CANNOT single out a people or community and do anything for them as President! He does not have that kind of power!!
Now, if he so wished, he could donate some of his personal income to anyone he wishes---it's his money! It's his right! But in any other case---that has not been declared a natural disaster---he has no real power!!
He's the President---not GOD!”

“First, not all "blacks" are low income, and second you must be oblivious to some of the issues currently in the news like voting rights or access to healthcare, but know this. He dominated the minority voting demographic, not just with African Americans but also with other groups and with women, not because of him so much as because the GOP went nuts and pushed those voters away.”

“clearly, this is not an apology. no where did he say that he misled the public or that he was wrong. it is their right to purchase a plan of their choosing. some of those plans are health savings plans which are perfectly legitimate plans offered by insurers but are not blessed by the ACA. still, Obama would have been wise to slowing phase the law, where people could keep their insurance when and until they see a better more affordable plan through ACA. instead, they find themselves in a predicament where they've offended the liberties of those that they are supposedly attempting to help.”

“first of all, the media have been fully engaged and supportive of this president. that is why you see so many gushy articles about him, such as this. maybe this is the first and only president that you've followed, but these sort of events have happened with unfortunate regularity and each president has had their genuine moments of compassion. in fact, this was pale in comparsion to others ie, 911.
