This afternoon, President Barack Obama consulted with MSNBC host Al Sharpton, who’s also assicated with the National Action Network (NAN), about the fiscal talks between the White House and Congress. At the same meeting, Obama also consulted with other “leaders of civil rights and civic organizations.”

Via the pool report:

President Obama and Vice President Biden met with leaders of civil rights and civic organizations to discuss negotiations over how to avoid the fiscal cliff. The meeting lasted over an hour, and participants spoke to reporters outside the West Wing after they wrapped up.

    I would have loved to have Romney win and say, “I’m going to meet with members of the black community to discuss the best course of economic action that will have a postive effect on, not just african-americans, but all minorities.”

    Then hold a huge conference in DC with Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Condoleezza Rice, etc. Then put the plan into action and watch the economy recover.

    From the article: “Pres Obama and VP Biden met with leaders of civil rights and civic organizations to discuss negotiations over how to avoid the fiscal cliff.” These people have no experience in ‘fiscal matters’. We didn’t elect the adults. That would be like meeting with Valerie Jarrett instead of your Sec Def or Nat’l Security Adviser about taking out bin Laden. Oh wait…

    Oh I get it now. Obama is speaking with a ‘friendly’ audience (like giving speeches to college students) instead of meeting with actual economists who might tell him the bad news(like he needs to cut spending).

    This is nothing new, Loopy Black Panther leader, Malick “Zulu” Shabazz was an overnight guest at the White House in June of 2009, less than six months after Obama was inaugurated, and, as the guest log has shown repeatedly, he has been a regular guest there ever since 2009 – not that the MSM has ever reported it.
