AMAC Chides OBAMA for Creating His Own African-American Fan Club

‘Seeking support among voters for any other reason than a candidate’s competence, experience and track record is just plain wrong’ –

BOHEMIA, NY, Feb 23 – Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens, has called on President Obama to “stop using divisive strategies in his campaign for reelection.”

Weber says that until now Mr. Obama has “unabashedly resorted to ideological rhetoric to pit his supporters against all challengers to his reelection, exploiting the economic concerns of the American people by encouraging such groups as the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protestors.  He now appears to be playing the race card by actively seeking to rally Black voters across the country.”

The AMAC chief cited the president’s recent announcement that he and his reelection team have created their own grass roots movement among African-Americans.

“But, a grass roots movement is supposed to be a spontaneous show of support led by the people.  So, why has President Obama found it necessary to create his own fan club, African-Americans for Obama?  And, why is it called African-Americans for Obama and not just plain, Americans for Obama?  At least, that would be more inclusive and less divisive.”

Weber points out that the mainstream media “has not been at all critical of the president for seeking to create and nurture a blatant racially based call for support.  One can only wonder how the liberal media would react if Mitt Romney and his election campaign team were to announce the creation of a group they called, Mormons for Romney.

AMAC believes that seeking support among voters for any other reason than a candidate’s competence, experience and track record is just plain wrong, Weber explained.  “Neither race nor religion has anything to do with leadership ability, nor does a person’s ethnic background or age.”

The Association of Mature American Citizens [] is a vibrant, vital and conservative alternative to those traditional organizations, such as AARP, that dominate the choices for mature Americans who want a say in the future of the nation.  Where those other organizations may boast of their power to set the agendas for their memberships, AMAC takes its marching orders from its members.  We act and speak on their behalf, protecting their interests, and offering a conservative insight on how to best solve the problems they face today.

    They are not African American–there are no genuine hyphenated Americans–just American!

  2. Lev Belinkov says:

    I certainly agree with all of you!
    BHO(Barak Hussein Obama) is a biggest liar for all USA history!
    Why did he hide his birth sertificate?
    Bob Livingston gave us an answer recently!
    He did GREAT job to find out first issue as who is “natural – born citizen”. ( I advise all of you read his “Personal Liberty Digest”)
    So, “natural-born citizens”, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens!
    As all of you know Obama’s father have never been USA citizen! This is real reason why Obama just recently created his
    fake document! Have his advisers know that? I think so! It means all members of his stuff are criminal!
    Now question is why all media keep their lips tight? All senators and congressmens are silent?
    May be all of them are affraid what all world can think about USA?
    I would not care!
    Much better clean up yourself, clean up our beautiful country and go!
    It would just show how we care about yourself, kids and future of our country!

    We are truly living in perilous (dangerous) times. We in America are not exempt. If you are a believer in Christ you know what I am talking about. All those who desire to live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. It’s here and it will only intensify. There will be a great shaking in America as this is the year (2012) that there will be major changes in the government. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. America to your knees, especially those who are saved.

    This ineligible to be Pres., non-U. S. Citizen of any type, let alone a Natural-born U. S. Citizen, illegal immigrant, illegally elected, racist, anti-America, welfarer, in it for the money, incompetent, imposter, fraud, Marxist, Communist, Socialist, liberal, idiot, Muslim P.O.S., ETC., can do anything he wants and get away with it. It is because America and “We the People” are afraid of being called racists? Are we afraid of the backlash from the militant Blacks or Blacks in general, or of a Race War? Maybe that is just we need to rid the U. S. of non-producers, free-loaders and generational welfarers. Are we afraid that 100+ cities will burn? What would happen in the media if Santorum formed “Conservative White Americans for Santorum”, ETC. This a-hole can get away with anything he wants and there is some reason why. I would like to know why. He is a never-was, lying, fraud. Why won’t he open his records? Maybe he doesn’t have any! Maybe he doesn’t want everybody to see that he is all of the above mentioned! Why is America standing for this fraud and his racist wife? Is Congress in bed with this a-hole and his backer, George Soros? Why is he the only candidate that was never vetted and have his background checked…..or was it checked and found out to be all that I mentioned, but because he is a half-breed, the powers to be thought it was time for a color change in the OVAL OFFICE on occasion, when he isn’t on expensive, lavish vacations, on the taxpayers’ dime. He is milking the taxpayers for his reparations and he isn’t an American! Prove me wrong or tell me why he has been allowed to get away with that he has!

    Do any of you people ever write to your Senators and Congressman? How about your state legislature? Maybe you just complain in areas like the. We need people who will complain to people who have some pull. We also need to replace our liberal schoolboards. We need conservatives who will control the liberal teachers(or get rid of them) and not let them indoctrinate our kids.

  6. Glenn says:

    I saw a huge billboard sign in NorthEast Texas that said:
    If you Voted for Obama the first time to Prove you weren’t a Racist!
    Next time vote AGAINST him to prove you are not Stupid!
    Enough said!

    • llittleredhen says:

      I applaud your comment!

    • James says:

      I am a 67 year old American that is Black. I did not vote for this fool in office. I grew up in Chicago. I know what kind of politicians come from that area. Unfortunately, I have a lot of black and white friends that jumped on the first black president banwagon. They are very sorry now that they voted based on their emotions rather than facts.

      • Lois Hull says:

        James you are a true American. We all who love our Country need to fight together and save our Country & vote Oboma out. God bless you.

  7. Vergie Lougheed says:

    It is absolutely refreshing to read just about all of the above. I believe our membership will of the people that can
    think for themselves and not follow along like a huge herd of sheep. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the
    opinions of you people! I agree with all of you. Ellen

  8. Jim Thomas says:

    Obama probably didn’t have to make that announcement.

    “Blacks will vote for Obama, blindly! It’s a race thing”!……….Economist, Walter Williams

  9. Lois Waggoner says:

    We the People need to pray and VOTE!! It is amazing how many people don’t even bother to vote. Our young men gave their lives so that we could have that right. Also we need to pray that The Lord’s will be done. I pray that He will be glorified in our Country because we are the most caring and giving Country in the World.
    We do need term limits. It is awful that a liberal like Ted Kennedy was in office that many years. More Conservative Christians need to run for office and be strong and don’t buy and trade votes. Also adding things to bills is wrong. Just pass one bill at a time not all this pork.
    And slash Federal spending!!! Let the States decide for themselves without the Federal Gov’t.imposing everything. I agree with the above, God help us if O gets another four years!!!!
    Do you know that the Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil were brothers?
    Lois W

    • Ron Litton says:

      Here we go again!… spouting hearsay about Mormons without any basis or background.

    • llittleredhen says:

      Perhaps Jesus and the devil were brothers, but let’s face it-Jesus is the way, the truth,and the light.
      I would rather have a Mormon in office any day than an obvious Muslim. As a matter of fact, just about anyone off the streets of America is better than Obamanation.

  10. Wanda says:

    Wake up America!
    Obama is for Obama nothing more or less…. His goal is to divide and conquor.
    He is trying to turn the poor and middle class against the rich; Working people against the banks; Voters against Republican; Consumers against Business.

    Politicians for many years have believed that if you throw enough s _ _ _ against the wall- some of it is bound to stick. That’s why there are so many lies and negative campaigns.
    Conservatives must learn to speak out ………… or we’re doomed.

  11. Joseph says:

    Barack Hussein Obama has without a doubt set race relations back 50 years. He has incited hatred and distrust of whites amongst black people. He preaches the sermon of class and race warfare. He is a disgrace. Martin Luther King would have been saddened and appalled at this megalomaniac. Black people need to quit stereotyping whites and voting based on color or they will destroy this country.

  12. Gary says:

    Ron Paul is just a politician..He’s propping up his son now for the future if we have one…He’s not the answer..Good in Congress but not as a leader…

    We are the answer..Take it all back locally..

  13. D. K. Parker says:

    This administration is not only corrupt, but totally disgusting. My biggest fear is if O gets reelected that he will become the true dictator that he wants to be and will do everything he can to ensure he is in that position for life. The consitution means nothing to him. I believe this election is our last chance to take back America without becoming a country that, in the past, we have always fought to prevent becoming.

  14. antibee says:

    I too realized the AARP is a liberal saavy organization that makes a LOT of money off of Seniors. I think they have the same marketing team as Obama. All of this is the slickest sales i have ever witnessed.
    Any of the 3 Republican candidates could fix a lot of damage that has been done over the past 3 years. I think it is imperative that the Republicans take the Senate so they will be able to undo some of the damage quicker. It is still going to take quite some time.. I think that after the Republicans choose a candidate. you will see a REAL grass roots movement to get him elected. I feel so badly that i cant make any of my younger friends see through these Chicago Democratic Socialist Party people. They have bought into the “act” and facade of this dude. I try to explain that if you lived through the 60’s and 70’s he is so transparant and simple. And it is a crying shame that African Americans dont know how to take him.. they see color first. Shame on our education system – this next generation. I have no white guilt of being prejudice but if i criticize anything this President does, my younger friends automatically say i dont like him because he’s black. It is soooo annoying.
