Clintons Not Welcome in South Central

As President, Bill Clinton made many a stop to predominantly African American churches such as First AME. Parishoners found him to be as nearly proficient at sermonizing as the best of the preachers. Indeed, some have declared Bill Clinton to be the "first Black President."

However the welcome mat has been withdrawn as Capitol Weekly reports that the Clintons were told they could not appear before the congregation at First AME last weekend. Pastor Dr. John J. Hunter told his members that he had not allowed the visit which drew applause from several hundred in the church.

African Americans nationally are not comfortable with the tone of the attack Hillary Clinton took towards Senator Barack Obama in the South Carolina Primary and it appears that mood has expanded to Los Angeles. Representative Diane Watson, a Clinton supporter, stated that she had warned the New York Senator the South Carolina campaign could hurt her in South Central Los Angeles. "I've had people tell me they would support Hillary until the attack," Watson said. "I told her, ‘Don't take South Central for granted."

Though African Americans are a shrinking part of Los Angeles' population they still make for a significant part of the local Democratic electorate. Their support for Obama will have a chilling effect on the Clinton campaign.

Ironically, the person who originally declared Clinton "the first Black President," author Toni Morrison, has endorsed Obama.

They should go to Malibu.

The homeless van population would welcome them there.

Plus, some good booty for Bill to pursue.

The great consensus builder Antonio couldn't get them into First AME?????

Then what good is he to Hillary. The Kennedys already are taking the Latino vote away from her. Just wait until that Caroline baby picture hits the mail.

Maybe Hillary could get that big ear Antonio baby picture where he appears to be asking, "Are YOU my papa?"

Actually Dowd I'm fucking with you, the way people do with most clowns at the circus.

People can say whatever they want here. You on the other have have become an annoyance around here.

If I feel like deleting your nonsense posts, I will.

Ron Kaye doesn't publish every letter to the editor. Kevin James doesn't take every phone call he gets. It's the same deal here.

You have no rights here. You are here at my pleasure.

Just like you enjoy your friends wearing Klan robes, I enjoy deleting your pointless posts.

For that I am sure most readers will enjoy it too.

There is nothing to get because it's all bullshit.

How DARE they say that Hillary started the attack? Whoever said that, wasn't watching the debate.

What a bunch of misinformation. Obama is the opposite of what he is being portrayed.

Clinton Remained Silent As Wal-Mart Fought Unions

......In six years as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, between 1986 and 1992, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world's largest retailer waged a major campaign against labor unions seeking to represent store workers.

Clinton has been endorsed for president by more than a dozen unions, according to her campaign Web site, which omits any reference to her role at Wal-Mart in its detailed biography of her.

Wal-Mart's anti-union efforts were headed by one of Clinton's fellow board members, John Tate, a Wal-Mart executive vice president who also served on the board with Clinton for four of her six years.

I started laughing when I saw Maxine "Bitch" Waters out for Hillary. What a joke! She allowed King Drew in a poor community to go down the toliet, she hasn't done shit for her district with all its problems, no development, no big stores and all her relatives are on the take. She's just as goofy speaking as she always is and people actually laughed at her.
