Why Does President Bush Not Speak To The Naacp?

For 70+ years, a sitting president has always addressed the nation’s largest minority contingent. Why not W?

Schedule conflicts? BS. In his 5 years in office, I am sure the White House has received many invites for him to do so, providing ample opportunity.

Come now...we all know his schedule is packed with all those vacations to Crawford! He's a bussy man! He is the leader of the free world, after all. He keeps his days full pissing off the country and the world. Give him some time...He'll push some asside for the NAACP some time around January of 2008.

Because a spoiled rich brat who always has to have his way and is incapable of compromise will hold a perpetual grudge against any group that hasn't supported him. Also, think about how he protects himself from everyone other than his sycophants in any public appearance. He's not going anywhere that he knows he'll be booed.


I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.

It is a well known fact, that wherever President For Life Idi I mean Bush speaks, he makes sure he is in a friendly crowd so there are no objections to his remarks.

In many events, you had to be a Bush donor or campaign worker to get in. Remember that there was an event were two anti bushies had to be escorted out.

In other words, If your not with us, your out enemies!

While tradtional for a number of years for the USA President to speak at the NAACP National Convention, Bush knows it is a hostle, 'liberal', pro-democrat crowd that has a lot of grudges against the Bushies. Cutbacks in social programs, the War in Iraq that is killing a lot of Blacks that went into the Army to get money for an education, against affirmative action, substantial pro-business views...you want some more reasons for him not to show up to just get endlessly booed?

The same way I keep a straight face when Whoopi, Babs, Robin Williams, Chevy, and everyone else make asses of them selves, talking ABOUT Dubya.

I believe in respect, even when one disagrees with what you believe in. I have some very large differences of opinion about politics w/posters here, but I'd respect what they were saying, if I were in an audience, and politely listen to them speak, and hell, even clap when they were done. Not do what Chevy Chase did, and called Bush a f***ing idiot, at an awards program. Do it in private, not in public. Do it in the voting booth, and not on some TV show, where those of us who didn't vote like Hollywood did, don't have to be called idiots, or jerks. I don't walk around calling Clinton, or Kerry, or Carter f-ing idiots in front of my kids. Why? It's called respect. I didn't vote for them, but I have a respect for what they have done and attained. Which is a far cry from some others, we are supposed to admire....

I have no respect for someone who freeloaded off their fathers connections from college through the business world then played the guy next door to get elected when the only other choice was a robot. You can say whatever you want in public or private, this is a free country, enjoy it while it lasts.

You my friend are a rarity.

Most of the rightist media use every opportunity to call libs, etc. friggen idiots (can we say Rush and O'reilly just to name two?)

But, what does that have to do with Bush not being available to "everyman"?

Agreed! But why does the message have to be so hateful? Sure, you may have a valid point. I didn't vote for Bush 41, and I seriously doubt Jeb would get my vote if HE ran, but I did vote for Dubya, and I am just tired of having the airwaves overloaded with disrepect. When the Iran rescue mission failed in 1979, and Carter took full responsibility for the disaster, were the TV talking heads making fun of him? No. Clinton got some ribbing about some of the things he got accused of doing, but it wasn't a late night hate fest, with him.

He ought to be. This is where the Republican Party is loosing out. Reagan is probably the best example of a President who could "connect" w/everyman. You felt he cared, even if he probably didn't give a damn. Dubya probably doesn't care, either, but he shore ought to make it a point to look like he does. I didn't vote for Bush41, because I felt he just couldn't care less for me.

I think that Bush ought to go and speak to every group who didn't vote for him. Let 'em boo. Go on "The Daily Show" and let 'em boo. Turn up in some lame ass skit on Saturday Night Live, and let 'em boo.

I can't listen to Rush, he makes me nuts.

But my point is, that the LEVEL of hatred in the ribbing is just tiresome. Rush and Savage and that lot have never (to my knowledge) called Clinton a f***ing anything, in public.

I'm not disagreeing w/you about the hate speak, I'm just saying that Republicans seem to be hatefully vilified more that Democrats.

As usual you're full of it.

The NAACP decried Bush for NOT SIGNING the James Byrd Jr. Hate Crime Act when he was Governor of Texas. Which he didn't (because of the inclusion og gays and lesbians in the bill's language). Reasonable people can disagree on Hate Crimes Legislation, but I doubt if Bush disagreed on principle.

And when did Mfume or Julian Bond call Bush a Nazi or a member of the KKK?

Excuse me? There were no TV talking heads back in 1979.

As for Clinton, which planet do you inhabit? The entire panoply of talking head trashmeisters - Coulter, Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage, Ingraham ... the list goes on - built their careers on late night hate fests on Clinton.

Reminds me when Cheney came to Las Vegas several times during the election season (Bush came here too, but only to attend multi-thousand dollar-a-plate fundraisers, one time at the Paris Hotel & Casino, how ironic is that?).

Cheney came to give speeches at public venues. I tried to go – several times. Just to hear what he had to say ~ not to go protest.

Registered Democrats were verboten. Denied entry.

I think the NAACP is nothing more than a special interest group, as much of the Democratic party's constituencies seems to be today.

But I think any president ought to seize the opportunity to speak to them. It offers an open forum to discuss the politics of race and really set a clear path for eliminating the race baiting that fills the mainstream media today.

But that would be useful if we had a president who could deliver that message clearly and forcefully.

So the word f***ing is the basis by which you judge the level of hatred against someone?

Michael Savage has called Clinton a Nazi, Hitler, etc (who knows why?). He also called GWB a "f**king liberal" for approving $ 200 million in AIDs funding.
And you hold this man who uses racist, homophobic invectives on the radio as an example of decent speech?

As far as Rush goes, I havent listened to him in years. But, yes, I did listen to Savage's rants in recent years and they're sickening. Not only does he hate, but he proposes violence against other people.

Oh, and as far as the f-word goes:

"You fucking son of a bitch. I saw what you wrote. We’re not going to forget this."

You got that right.
The entire Christian Right (who have never given a single dollar to a Democrat as far as I know)
The Petroleum Industry
Big Pharma (I should know - I worked for them for 5 years, and we had virtually every Republican in our pocket).

But in effect, its but natural that both parties are an amalgam of special interest groups - the 2 party system pretty much perpetuates that state of affairs.
