    Obama: I won't 'twiddle my thumbs' waiting for GOP

    Or is he suggestion a race war if he doesn't get his economy?
    ---

    "Racial tensions won't get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they've got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot" if individuals do not see a stable fiscal future, Obama said.

    I think the better question is whether or not english is something you are fluent in if you got Obama blames the economy on race by saying racism will come into play to exacerbate the problems of poverty. That seemed pretty straight forward and clear, but if you got race caused the bad economy only a few conclusions can be drawn from such a pathetic misunderstanding.

    IMHO he is not blaming the economy on race, he meant (at least that is how I read it) that during bad economic times, with no stable fiscal future/economic prosperity, racial groups will turn (up to a point) against each other. And I think he is right, during bad economic times there is tension, whether it is targeted towards immigrants or illegals in the country being the targeted group or racial groups (Hispanics/Asians/Blacks).

    He knows if immigration goes down,he has nothing left and would be a lame duck. Therefore he is out stirring the pot.

    it isn't exactly some unknown phenomenon that a poor economy and the effects it has on a citizenry helps foster and ferment social divisions

    Re: Did obama just blame the economy on race

    A couple of points I'd like to make on this issue:

    1. It's pretty sad when the President of the United States has such contempt for the citizens of the country that he believes minorities will turn to violence if something isn't done about the economy.

    2. This President is predicting violence if the economy doesn't improve, yet he wants to restrict your access to guns and ammunition.

    3. This President loves to pit those who are successful and acquire the fruits of their success against those who are less successful in life. He loves to portray those with success and wealth as being undeserving of that success and wealth and those who are less successful as being deserving of their share of the successful person's wealth. Is it any wonder that some may feel the President is condoning taking from the successful and wealthy, even if it takes violence?
