It’s Looking Good for Obama

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

With the economy looking like it’s about to fall off a cliff, Obama is murking the old man in the latest polls:

The size of Obama’s lead in the new poll — 52 percent to 43 percent among likely voters — will draw plenty of attention. It’s the first time Obama has been over the 50-percent mark in a Post-ABC News poll, and easily outside the margin of error.

It’s time for our generation to finally do something with some impact and go full blast by registering as many people as you can.

    I’m sorry but this is completely off topic. Can someone please tell me what Barack Obama plans to do for African-Americans? He has said what he plans to do to help Latinos and Whites but has not mentioned African-Americans. I’m voting for Obama but would like this question answered. Please refrain from leaving anything rude.

    What? huh??? How about the tax cut that affects American citizens who make less than 150,000 a year that covers most African American’s and why does he have to have a specific plan for us anyway, I don’t think any of his plans are particular directed to white people, he mostly generalizes them… you need to got o http://www.barackobama.com to read up more on his plans.

  • realwoman

    Good for him. REMEMBER PEOPLE!!! You cannot show up to vote in any Barack Obama t-shirts. They will look at this as ‘campaigning’ and it is forbidden within the polling areas.

  • http://www.freewebs.com/traceybiz savvyblackrican77

    YES WE CAN – actually, with these poll results, YES WE HAVE!!!!

    This post is wonderful news, but we must remain steadfast in our committment to our candidates’ pursuit of the White House! We cannot get complacent and think that this election is in the bag!

    We have to keep getting the info/truth out, keep registering voters, and keep informing people that they cannot leave it up to others to vote because it looks like we’re winning; we MUST make it plain that EVERYONE getting out and voting in this election is ESSENTIAL to clinch the victory and begin to see REAL change!!!

    C.H.A.N.G.E. – Come And Help A Negro Get Elected!!!!

    OBAMA 08! OBAMADEN 08! BARACKIDEN 08!!!! VOTE!!!!!

    @Lisa-

    I don’t believe he should have to single out what he’d do for any race.

    I believe that when he addresses low income and middle class families, as well as factory workers, victims of the subprime mortgage crisis, he’s addressing African Americans with the rest of Americans.

    We, as African Americans, don’t face any challenges that no other race faces. Yes, we may be discriminated against, but I don’t see him saying, “White people, I’m going to help you keep your houses.” “White people, I’m going to bring your jobs back into America.”

    As for the Latinos, he’s addressing the issue of Immigration. Most of my Latino friends believe they are above the immigration discussion because their families have been in America for generations. I believe the immigration laws should be reformed and that fence at the border should not continue to be built. It’s inhumane and sends the wrong message to the rest of the world.

    Barack should not have to stop and look at Black people and say anything special to us. He’s striving to become President of the United States, and is having to work hard to be seen as an American and be treated as an American.

    That’s the best way I could put it.

    Hi HF 🙂

    To those who have asked about what Obama will do for African Americans, there’s a wealth of information about his positions on a variety of issues at www(dot)barackobama(dot)com. Here’s a sample::

    Strengthen Families

    * Promote Responsible Fatherhood: Obama will sign into law his Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Families Act to remove some of the government penalties on married families, crack down on men avoiding child support payments, and ensure that payments go to families instead of state bureaucracies.

    * Support Parents with Young Children: Obama and Biden will expand the highly-successful Nurse-Family Partnership to all 570,000 low-income, first-time mothers each year. The Nurse-Family Partnership provides home visits by trained registered nurses to low-income expectant mothers and their families.

    * Expand Paid Sick Days: Today, three-out-of-four low-wage workers have no paid sick days. Obama and Biden support guaranteeing workers seven paid sick days per year.

    Increase the Supply of Affordable Housing

    * Supports Affordable Housing Trust Fund: Obama has supported efforts to create an Affordable Housing Trust Fund to develop affordable housing in mixed-income neighborhoods.

    * Fully Fund the Community Development Block Grant: Obama and Biden will fully fund the Community Development Block Grant program and engage with urban leaders across the country to increase resources to the highest-need Americans.
