Meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus this past week, Obama's mouthpiece (others believe it is the other way around) Valerie Jarrett, some might surmise, pulled a 'Jerry Seinfeld' on the perpetually disenchanted bellyachers. Although the comedian was responding to complainers that his comedy show lacks a balance of blacks and whites, Jarrett could very well have given the same response to the The CBC, simply by substituting the word COMEDY with QUALIFIED.

The bottom line appears to reveal likely motivation of outdated groups such as the Congressional Black Caucus.

Besides, if Congressman David Scott actually stared a bit more intensely at his own image in a mirror, he might realize he is not among members of the exclusive millionaire's club within those hallowed halls of law-writers. In other words Congressman Scott, we might point out to you....perhaps you are not 'their kind of people either.' Before exiting, be certain to pick up your personal complimentary copy of a 'new kind of handbook' for the 2014 class of the Congressional Black Caucus.
