One of his real brothers lives in a Kenyan hut and Obama hasn’t give the guy a nickel even though he’s worth millions. But he’s now going to spend at least $200 million of our money pretending to be “My Brother’s Keeper” here in America. He obviously doesn’t realize we’re broke.
President Obama on Thursday will establish a new interagency task force charged with promoting opportunities for young men of color through an examination of government policies and programs.
The program, dubbed “My Brother’s Keeper,” will ask businesses and foundations to fund programs across the country designed to keep young minority men employed or in school and out of jail.
“For decades, opportunity has lagged behind for boys and young men of color. But across the country, communities are adopting approaches to help put these boys and young men on the path to success,” a White House official said in a statement. “The president wants to build on that work.”
The president will announce that foundations supporting the initiative have pledged at least $200 million over the next five years to “find and rapidly spread solutions that have the highest potential for impact,” the White House said.
We’ve spent trillions in the so-called “War on Poverty” but that’s clearly not enough. We need to throw another $200 million around for Obama’s latest vanity project. And there’s plenty of useful idiots to help pitch in:
Colin Powell, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, NBA hall-of-famer Magic Johnson, and NBA commissioner Adam Silver are also expected to be in attendance, as will business leaders, faith leaders, state and local officials, and participants of a youth guidance program called “Becoming a Man” that targets boys on Chicago’s South Side.
Instead of spending our money on this, why don’t wealthy liberals Obama, Bloomberg and Magic Johnson pay for this out of their pocket? Then they can pat themselves on the back even more.
The president has met repeatedly with the group, and heralded it as an example of how small interventions can help keep young minorities out of trouble.
Also in attendance will be Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, according to the network’s media reporter, Howard Kurtz.
No doubt the tolerant left will applaud O’Reilly’s efforts. By the way, did you know O’Reilly interviewed Obama before the Super Bowl. O’Reilly hardly ever mentions it.
