American Thinker's Starkes: Obama Still 'Can Do No Wrong' With Black Supporters

Thursday, 14 Nov 2013 07:45 PM

The glaring inequities of the Affordable Care Act have yet to anger President Barack Obama's most ardent supporters, who continue to believe "he can do no wrong," according to American Thinker columnist Taleeb Starkes.

Starkes — who criticized Obamacare in his column "My Fellow Blacks, Can I Criticize Dear Leader, Now?" – told "The Steve Malzberg Show" Thursday, his own skyrocketing insurance premiums inspired the piece, but failed to sway the black community.

Story continues below video.



"Once I learned that my premium jumped … I was so angry that I wanted to drive down to the White House … to throw stones at the emperor, so to speak," he said. "So I poured some of that into the article and I was waiting for people around me in my community to show that same type of anger. But it never manifested."

Starkes charged Obama "does nothing for the black community," yet "he can do no wrong … he's the supreme sugar daddy… They will happily embrace that as long as the hand that's sprinkling the goodies is black — and Democrat."

Starkes said his column attempted to compare Obama with Herman Cain, the businessman and former candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. It shows "both guys are black, both are accomplished," yet Cain is "not embraced one bit in the black community."

"And I said [Cain] could come deliver free pizzas and that wouldn't be good enough," Starkes said. "Yet Obama can say that he's going to deliver pizzas and he's treated as if he's God."

The columnist said the failures of the president's signature healthcare law are beyond repair.

" I grew up with the knowledge that stupidity can't be fixed, and that's what Obamacare epitomizes, stupidity," he said. "This quick-fix notion … is nothing less than [Obama] trying to put a bandage on a wound that won't heal. America will not recover from this wound that Obamacare will inflict."
