Obama To CBC: Stop Whining; Maxine Waters Complains

Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who told the Tea Party to “go to hell” about a month ago, had a message for President Barack Obama Monday after he essentially asked the Congressional Black Caucus to shut up over the weekend.

Obama gave a speech at the Congressional Black Caucus’s annual dinner on Saturday, and he chastised the black electorate for its criticism of his failure to show public favoritism to black constituents.

“I don’t know about you, CBC, but the future rewards those who press on. With patient and firm determination, I am going to press on for jobs. I’m going to press on for equality. I’m going to press on for the sake of our children. I’m going to press on for the sake of all those families who are struggling right now. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I am going to press on,” the President said. “I expect all of you to march with me and press on. Take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on. We’ve got work to do, CBC.”

Waters spoke to CBS NEWS on Monday, saying that the President has unfairly singled out African-Americans and catered to other minority causes since the beginning of his Presidency.

"Despite the fact that he’s appointed [Sonia] Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, he has an office for excellence in Hispanic education right in the White House, [the Hispanic caucus is] still pushing him," she said. "He certainly didn’t tell them to stop complaining, and he would never say that to the gay and lesbian community, who really pushed him on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Even in a speech to AIPAC [the American Israel Public Affairs Committee], he would never say to the Jewish community to stop complaining about Israel."

Waters has been critical of budget plans that reduce entitlements and do not provide extra relief for poor blacks whom she considers the hardest hit by the current economic crisis.
