Politicians chase votes the way a frat boy chases women. Also like the frat boy, politicians can have selective memory when it comes to creating a respectable and reciprocal relationship. They beg for your votes, promise you the world and then promptly disappear until it’s time for re-election.
That’s a bit of what we’re seeing right now from the Obama Administration. The Obama camp has rarely used the words “black man” or “black woman” in public for the last year, yet they are suddenly hanging in the hood more than the barber and the local drug dealer. They are holding forums to rally black voters for the mid-term elections and telling black folks to vote as if Obama were on the ballot.
