An Underclass Historical Thought about President Obama

What will history say about the First and maybe only Black President of the United States of America? Will It be written that the first Black President saved America from economical disaster? Will it be written that he failed like the First Black Mayors of Major urban cities in the late 60’s and early 70’s and 80’s? It is a fact that many and most inner cities were economically doomed when the First Black Mayors took office. They were doomed because their tax base moved to the suburbs, this fact gets an honorable mention in some economic courses. These First Black mayors soon found out how impossible it would be to just maintain the level of employment and quality of life after White flight to the suburbs. The suburbs grew and built schools and created jobs in the suburbs. The suburbanites that worked in the inner cities spent their money and paid taxes in the suburbs. That makes sense doesn’t it?

President Obama is on a similar road, designed for economical failure. Without a strong tax paying base and an employment driven economy all city, state, and federal governments will fail to serve the people for lack of money. This is the hand dealt Obama, a Presidency with no tax base to generate revenue. No jobs created in the private sector and a forced reduction and denial of funding for public sector jobs, for four straight years. History may not deny the cause of Obama’s failures but will say after 4 years, he owned that economy and was too weak to strengthen the economy and create jobs. The fact is no other previous President could have been successful with such unprecedented opposition.

I was thinking about President Obama’s election and reelection. His election was unprecedented to say the lease even with the Republican nominees offered up for the 2008 election. I’m reminded of Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans, (Chocolate City). Nagin now feel forced to write his own historical account of why his administration failed the people of Orleans Parish who were affected by the failure of Federal levees. Ray Nagin was reelected Mayor after the people who were forced out and kept out were given an opportunity to vote in place and to return to the city to vote. It was said that the old money conservatives and shadow government in New Orleans didn’t want the low and underclass to return. Mayor Nagin publicly spoke out against the plans of the rich uptown old money. His public opposition of the shadow government’s plans allowed him to be reelected by people who knew he was elected Mayor because of old money support. Many billions of dollars were given to the state government of Louisiana to make whole those inside the failed federal levees systems. The Governor was a Democrat and she publicly stated that she would not discriminate between flood and wind damage in the state of Louisiana. This discretionary decision allowed the Billions to be given out to people and non-profits who didn’t need or deserve the monies. Many of those who needed and deserved the money then still need to be made whole today. Nagin and the people he appointed to lead the recovery declared that soon there would be many cranes in the New Orleans skylines. The mayor found that he was powerless without the revenue that the Democratic Governor had no intention of releasing to him, because she felt disrespected by things he said publicly. The city council also worked against and denied him a plague or an accomplishment to show any success for his administration historically. The city and most of its citizens suffered and did without all of Nagin’s second term as mayor of New Orleans. The State of Louisiana and Its Republican governor released billions of dollars to the city of New Orleans. The money was for infrastructure repairs and other needed projects, this happened only after the new Mayor (a White Democrat) was elected. Now there are so much surplus monies that the mayor can hire a few Deputy Mayors at 6 figure salaries for the first time in New Orleans history. The New Police chief can hire and appoint a few new commanders that he only and not civil service can hire or fire, they also make 6 figure salaries, that power and ability is also a historical first in New Orleans. Mayor Nagin has to write his own story or the truth may never be written, if he doesn’t write his own history.

The following thoughts which are not conspiracy theories came to mind while I pondered the past. If there is a quote unquote Shadow Government on the National level I don’t know where and when they meet. If That Shadow Government I imagined consists of the rich and powerful and their power and influence secretly controls the Governance on Capitol Hill, perhaps President Obama is President because it is the will of the Shadow Government. You may ask why such power and influence from the conservative side support a failing Presidency in the first place? My answer is some failures of hope and change supports the status quo. I supposed this Shadow Government knew that after Bush, the Republican Brand had absolutely no chance of winning the White House in 2008. The King Makers knew that Hillary, Barack and most of the lesser Democratic candidates would win over any Republican candidate. The Question was, who to secretly back with their power and influence. The problem was “ they wanted their Presidency back as soon as possible”. These meetings were pre-introduction of the Tea Party, they were pre 2008 elections. I imagined that they knew to get the White House in four years; they would have to be ruthless. They knew that that would be no way to treat the First Woman President and would mean the end of the GOP, so they secretly backed Obama. They realized the many ruthless ways and things they can use on the first Black President that they couldn’t use on Hillary or a White male. That makes sense doesn’t it?

The plan was simple; create a real crisis (Bank Bailout) in the beginning of Obama’s Administration. Then manufacture a fake crisis (debt ceiling) and oppose absolutely anything he proposes to do or say, for four years straight. Simply allow no economic or job growth even if the people know and see what’s going on. Then tell the people the election polls are too close to call and the people will believe what they are told if it is repeated over and over again. Through mis and dis information convince the people that the 2012 election is close. As in 2000 have Fox and friends declare a Republican victory regardless of what other news outlets have to say about who won the election. It worked before and should work again. Today the Tea Party candidates represent the Republican’s only chance of getting their Presidency back. The candidates have and will continue the ruthless disrespectful attacks on the Presidency while claiming certain likeability for the President, none of them can win Nationwide. That means someone left of the Tea Party is waiting in the wings until after the withering attacks on the Presidency and the President has the desired effect. The choice then will be between a mainstream Republican and a Tea Party- Republican to challenge a failed Presidency.

I don’t know what history will say about the First Black President of the United States of America. I know that usually the winner gets to tell HIS story. The story is playing out today, and tomorrow we that live through it will know the true story. There will be some who lived it, but still need it explained, hence… History. Who knows? The Shadow knows.

Thanks for the comment, dust. After the election, if he lose history must note the failure, but not the cause. If he wins he could make lemonade with those lemons he recieved for four years straight. I believe if the President is successful the Nation is successful.

Dusty, our assessment of the President's Presidency is void of substance if he is not allowed to put anything in to be assessed. It's still about hope and change. We both hope things change for the better. Stay strong old soldier

Junko,

I must say,This is A very easy and most understandable read. Your admonishments are more than to the point on the central subject and each seperate subsubject spoken of here. I come in comment to say Thanks be to The (All in All) that it is not man who ultimately makes the decision whether the country stands or falls in spite of the stolen eight years to bring it and the world economy to their knees.I am an avid Obama supporter because he is unwavering in his focused attention which is and has been showing itself from day one of his presidency to be for the betterment and whole care for the welbeing of the people and the country wholly. the greater shame as you have alluded to here is that the people are so blind with their eyes wide open, and can most assuredly be led in any direction as the hidden enemy decides appropriate for their decepted agenda.

I rest easy even so knowing that The LORD THY GOD alone is judge and that they shall have to answer to Him with the blood of the people on their hands.

I thank you brother for the adherence to Pure Truth!!!...

Junko, I have always wondered if Obama was placed into the position so as to deliberately fail. In all my lifetime, I have never seen so much disrespect for the man or the office. The President has been far to conciliatory for my tastes in the face of intractable opposition to his making any progress addressing the nation's problems. It might be a GOP mind trick to make it likely that the disaster of the Bush years can be swept under the carpet because Obama will not be allowed to be an effective leader. We are to welcome back the Bushsh*t with open arms. Something rotten is afoot! Great Hub, Cred2

Yes Credence2 It is a mind game, but it's a serious game. The idea is to wash from the brains of millions the last 101/2 years with the last 21/2 years being partially brainwashed on the conservative side. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Stay Strong.

Yes Mr. Junko, Well told and it's the same old game. It is so sad that in 2011 we the people don't see it's just Black or white. Most of the people that helped him get in are now running out on him and fellowing the play of the good old boys.

I think history will record the fact that President Obama was one of The Greatest Presidents in America's History . There will always be those that will always hate him because of who he is but, history will record the hate as a racially motivated end of The Grand Old Party.

    Those of us who pay attention and educate ourselves to what's really going on in America and it's effect on the world already know that HIStory will have more then one HIStory. Bush, Cheney and Rice all were apart of the same story but some how they all have their own HIStory. The true story is we have a President that is black and white; his blood line come form both know matter who think he is black. Black or white he is the President and we all need to respect him. Here is my story why I think he will be re-elected. He is fighting for healthcare while congress is fighting against healthcare. He is fighting for less taxes for the underclass while congress is fighting for less taxes for the rich. He is fighting for jobs and to rebuild our schools, cities, brideges and infustructure in this country while congress is fighting to rebuild them in other countries. He is fighting to stop wars while congress is fighting to start wars. He fighting to take out the terrorist form the top down while congress is fighting to find ways to fund terrorist countries. The true story is the people unanimously voted him in office and the people will have a choice to make history. The Republicans and Indenpentants can't find a candidate to side with; so the people want side with them.

    Triple 7"s time will tell if your story is historically correct. The President's history will be filled with historically negative first for the Presidency of the United States. Thanks for the comment.
