Only 120 Days Remaining!
While Nation of Islam leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan, once referred to Obama as the Messiah,[i]we never expected a member of Congress to claim the opposite of leading Republicans. But, once again, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has defied all expectations, in noting that:
“We’ve got to take back the House. I saw pictures of Boehner and Kantor on our screens. Don’t ever let me see again in life, those Republicans in our Hall, on our screens, talking about anything. These are Demons! These are Legislators who are destroying this Country…”[ii]
It’s interesting to consider the backlash had such a statement been made by any member of the Republican Party against Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid, not to mention against any black member of Congress.
Welcome to the Obama era.
