Leader of Black Socialist Caucus Says Debt Deal Is a “A Sugar-Coated Satan Sandwich” …Update: Sugar-Coated Sandwich Contest

This sounds like good news…
The leader of the Black Socialist Caucus says the debt deal is a “sugar-coated Satan sandwich.” That must mean it is a much better deal than we had hoped for.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver is the current leader of the Black Caucus (without black Republican members)

Roll Call reported:

President Barack Obama’s rightward lurch to reach a $3 trillion deficit reduction deal with no guarantee of additional revenues had liberals fuming and Republicans all but declaring victory Sunday afternoon.

With time running out to reach an agreement to raise the debt ceiling before Tuesday’s default deadline, Obama moved dramatically in the direction of the GOP, according to Senators and aides in both parties…

…Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said early reports of the new deal appeared to be “a sugar-coated Satan sandwich.” The Missouri Democrat said the CBC hadn’t yet made a formal declaration that the group would oppose it, “but this is a shady bill.”

“This deal trades people’s livelihoods for the votes of a few unappeasable right-wing radicals, and I will not support it,” ripped Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, before House Democrats had even been briefed. “The lesson today is that Republicans can hold their breath long enough to get what they want.”

UPDATE: That didn’t take long. There’s now a sugar-coated sandwich contest.

    Oh, I get it now, bipartisan is code for only what CBC sees as fair, and here I thought this nation was made up of more than blood suckers. I guess I am raciest.

  • Barracuda

    After all the times where the left wing has refused to compromise, where they have demanded to get their way even when we held the majority in both houses of Congress, it is absolutely sickening to see their attitude here. Republicans are always expected to compromise, Democrats almost never do, and if they dare to, they are called sellouts by the radical left wing of the Democrat Party. Enough is enough!

    listen to all that civility and bipartisanship.

    I’ll repeat what I said in the last thread: These whackjobs believing they lost does not mean we won.

    Jim Hoft or anyone else answer this for me.

    Why is giving Obama $2.7 trillion until 2013 in exchange for $1 trillion in supposed cuts a good deal?

    My Tea Party brain does not compute.

    This is a rotten deal and I call it a crap sandwich.

  • SM-AZ

    Sounds like Cleaver is spitting mad at us. Isn’t he the liar that said tea partiers spit on him after the healthcare cram down??

  • a former dem

    “Why is giving Obama $2.7 trillion until 2013 in exchange for $1 trillion in supposed cuts a good deal?”

    Its not, but this is enough to very very slightly slow the ship towards the cliff, the next step is for next year to get the senate with more rand pauls, rubios, hold on with more TP people in the House, and most important kick out that fraud and put in a consitutional conservative.

    Once this deal is done, the focus will be front and center on the economy again, and the blame will be 100% on that fraud.

    You cannot right a ship in an instant, it will break it, all this is done is slow it down slightly and made more people realise it needs to be turned around, but that cannot full happen without the Senate and the WH.

    “Elections have consequences.” The consequences of the 2010 election are just beginning to sink in for the CBC, progressives, and assorted other liberals not included in those groups. They are having an extreme amount of trouble dealing with this new reality.

    Make the 2012 election even more consequential. Get involved.

  • Speaking Clearly

    It is sad and pathetic to see so many in the Black American community, unwilling to get over their racist, victimhood mentality.

    There are a growing number of wonderful Black Conservatives, who are sick and tired of being portrayed in such an uneducated, and idiotic way. Thank God for them.

    Many of these brainwashed Black Liberals actually feel sorry for Barack Obama….and actually believe that White Americans are trying to bring down his Presidency…all because of his skin color.

    Even Barack Obama….with all of his own hypocrasy of supposedly being a “Uniter”, and Post-Racial President, will not go before the cameras, and admit that White Americans are trying to bring him down because of the color of his skin…

    …Because even Barack Obama knows this is laughable.

    Tea Party Conservatives welcome Black Conservatives…and they are growing in rank…

    Tea Party Conservatives do not agree with Obama’s Progressive policies….

    …and would feel the same way about a White President.


    Does not pass the smell test. This is a distraction to make the TEA party think they actually made some headway. Without a balanced budget amendment this is nothing but smole and mirrors.

    Onced again, Barry gets to continue his destruction of America. I am sure his european socialist bankers are delighted with the new money they will get. This is all about more bailouts for the EU, just like TARP and TARP 2.

    No votes for this bailout. Be prepared for more smoke and mirrors to sell it down the river.

    Time to make a list of RINO’s to see who to primary out in 2012. Boehner is number 1, Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe and Lindsey Graham. I’ll dontate will you?

  • Speaking Clearly

    Furthermore….if I could use another “Hobbit” analogy:

    Many Liberal Blacks believe the Tea Party stands for “White America’s last stand for power”.

    This is ridiculous.

    Just like the Elves…in Tolkiens’s books….the time of the “Fair Folk” is waning….and soon they will cross the sea..

    In other words…White Americans know that someday soon, we will no longer be in the majority, and entrusted to lead this great Republic onward.

    What the Tea Party Conservatives are doing…will only allow more personal freedoms, and prosperity, for whatever people…..no matter their skin color and background…inherit this Republic….and are entrusted as caretakers of it’s future.

    We will see more and more minorities, become majorities…and become elected to lead this great Nation.

    Right now…the Tea Party is made of a diverse group of patriotic Americans….and more and more Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and many other minorities, are growing the ranks.

    There is a good reason why more minorities are associating themselves as Tea Party Conservatives…..either active…or under the radar.

    #4 Thanks for that. I had never heard of this man or the movie. I believe that there are more and more people seeing whats up with this administration. I pray God will open the eyes of the ones that can’t seem to see it.

  • Robin

    Anyone that listens to Cleaver is a fool. He has been corrupt his whole adult life. He is a thief and a liar. Convicted of it, too.

  • Doug

    Someone must have forgotten to tell Emanuel Cleaver the Section 8 housing vouchers, cab fares, untraceable cell phones, Hi-def TV’s, WIC cards and welfare checks will be sent to his constituents as usual.

  • kansas

    When are they going to interview the leader of the Congressional White Caucus?

  • RedBeard

    This deal may not be the greatest thing, but the mere fact that the Leftie Usual Suspects hate it means that it isn’t all bad.

    It’s true that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Whatever good this proposed deal has in it, however little good there is, it’s just the bare beginning. We have a very long way to go, but we can pray that this is that first step.

    Socialism is evil and based on the fraudulent bargain that we each can (and eventually must) live at the expense of others. It easily violates three of the Ten Commands, those that forbid lies, coveting and theft. Socialism must destroy private property rights, and that destroys the free market. Without price information, the myriad of participants in the economy cannot know how to price their own products and services and they cannot make reliable economic calculations. Without profit, there cannot be any savings from which to invest in new equipment and new ideas. Indeed, when a business continues without a profit, the losses must be made up by consuming its finite capital. When that is depleted, the business just stops functioning. When a sufficient number of businesses run out of capital, the nation can no longer function or earn enough to feed, clothe and house itself.

    Socialism is the ideology of death.

    How many media stories will we see decrying these “terrorists” for “holding the nation hostage”?

  • kato

    There are not many 100-percent guarantees in the world, but this is one of them: Any public utterance by any member of the Black Caucus is guaranteed to be inane.

  • Bill

    “Rep. Emanuel Cleaver is the current leader of the Black Caucus (without black Republican members)”

    Allen West is the only Republican member.

    Congressional Progressive Caucas? You mean the Communist Negro Party don’t you? They are the ones who don’t ever have anything because the White Plantation owners keep whipping it out of their hands. Ohhhh, the poor things. Hey, Cleaver, get your black butt back to your shack, you’ve got cotton to pick tomorrow morning!!

  • Joe Camel

    As one in his (Cleaver’s) gerrymandered district, nothing new from him. If it is not black, not associated with black or favor black, it is bad to him. Nothing can un-elect him or a black from our district, just too structured. The new redistricting protected him and Lacy from St. Louis, so they never have to worry. Politics as usual. The man has never missed an opportunity to take from the white folks in the remaining area in his district to give to those in his. We had hoped this would change, but…the Repubs in Missouri gave them a pass again. Protected class comes to mind.


    @#20….the same time when there are WHITE MUSIC AWARDS

  • Stoshio

    If this guy and CBC don’t like the bill then I’m in favor of it! The CBC is racist by its very existence. We need to pressure its demise. Keep talking about them and expose their antics. There is only one Republican in the group? Sounds like a socialist, entitlement-seeking bunch to me.
