Clinton touts Obama in South Carolina, but promises to do more for blacks

Hillary Clinton had a case to make to black voters in South Carolina this weekend: President Barack Obama brought the country back from the brink of economic depression but I want to make sure everyone gets a piece of the recovery.

Clinton, who headlined a Democratic forum on Friday night and two events on Saturday in the Palmetto State, laid out a plan that would “build on the progress” the President has made but offer broader growth, especially for African-American families.

Clinton opened a town hall before a primarily black audience here in Orangeburg with her oft-used line on Obama: The president, she said, “doesn’t get the credit he deserves for digging us out of that deep hole” and avoiding a depression when he took office in 2008.

    If she does more of what Obama has done for the black race after 4 years of her they will live in cardboard shacks, get their food from the city dump, and wear cloths from dumpsters. The black race is in worse shape than at any time since the end of the civil war. Let them go, Hillary. They deserve a life like everyone else. I forgot you are a follower of Margaret Sanger, so your plan is to eliminate the inferior race, the BLACK race.

    The only way for people in any state to get back on there FEET IS FOR JOBS TO COME BACK HERE TO OUR COUNTRY AND THAT’S THE TRUE FACTS.
