Michele Bachmann: “Obama Failed the Black Community”

June 22, 2011  |  

Rep. Michele Bachmann, from Minnesota, said that President Obama failed the African American community.

She was talking about the high unemployment rates when it comes to minority communities.

This is what she said: “This president has failed the Hispanic community. He has failed the African-American community. He has failed us all when it comes to jobs.”

Bachmann, a potential presidential candidate in 2012 delivered this speech at The Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans last week. She cited the 16 percent unemployment rate for African Americans and 12 percent for Hispanics.

It’s true those are dismal numbers.
