...it's rich!!!! Scratch a liberal, and find a vast number of them walk in lockstep in the belief that all people a given ethnic group should think alike(particularly if that group is by in large in that political party's pocket). The one thing that matters above all, to many, if not most, liberals is gender/race identity politics. It's NEVER about facts and ideas with them. This man, Harry Alford, CEO of the Black Chamber of Commerce is quoting facts and figures regards the so called "shovel ready" green energy jobs, and all of a sudden Boxer starts cherry picking Black groups whose OPINIONS (not facts) don't agree with his. M'DAMN Boxer is taken aback that she has been told to back off being condescending. She is clearly uncomfortable that Mr Alford is not sitting down with Massah Zero and Missie Boxer on the liberal plantation. "Don't you know other Black people support us?" Is essentially what she was saying -- implying "You're Black, why don't you get in line."
The best quote:
"Senator Inhofe[who had jumped in with a remark, trying to take the heat off], we have been looking at energy policy since 1996. And we are referring to the EXPERTS, regardless of their color. And for someone to tell me, an African American, college educated VETERAN or the United States Army, that I must contend with some other "Black group", and put aside everything else in here, this has NOTHING to do with the NAACP, and it really has nothing to do with the National Black Chamber of Commerce. We're talking ENERGY. And that road the chair [Boxer] went down, I think it's God awful!"
