Black Leader: 'We'd Be Marching On White House'

From The Hill ~ Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” (to protest black unemployment) if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).

"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House," Cleaver told The Miami Herald in comments published Sunday. "There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."
