Obama Consults With Al Sharpton, Other 'Civil Rights Leaders,' on Fiscal Talks



What, David Duke wasn't available?


quote:

This afternoon, President Barack Obama consulted with MSNBC host Al Sharpton, who's also assicated with the National Action Network (NAN), about the fiscal talks between the White House and Congress. At the same meeting, Obama also consulted with other "leaders of civil rights and civic organizations."

Via the pool report:

President Obama and Vice President Biden met with leaders of civil rights and civic organizations to discuss negotiations over how to avoid the fiscal cliff. The meeting lasted over an hour, and participants spoke to reporters outside the West Wing after they wrapped up.

Per the White House, expected attendees included:

* Peter Berns, The Arc
* Sister Simone Campbell, NETWORK
* Chad Griffin, Human Rights Campaign (HRC)
* Wade Henderson, Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR)
* Deepa Iyer National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA)
* Ben Jealous, NAACP
* Marc Morial, National Urban League
* Janet Murguia, National Council of La Raza (NCLR)
* Barry Rand, AARP
* Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, MomsRising.org
* Rev. Al Sharpton, National Action Network (NAN)
* Aaron Smith, Young Invincibles
* Rev. Jim Wallis, Sojourners

Pool can confirm that Campbell, Henderson, Iyer, Jealous, Morial, Murguia, Rand, Sharpton, Smith and Wallis were there, 'cause they all came out and talked.

Looks like Jesse was left out.

Also, no Catholic representation, nor Southern Baptist, Mormon, Jewish. I guess they have no stake in this discussion.

Oh, and no NOW, no LBGTwhatever either.

What a frickin' joke.

Thanks for that info. Still doesn't change the fact that none of these groups have any reason to be included in this discussion. I don't recall any suggestion of raising taxes for any of these groups. None of them will be affected by the "fiscal cliff" except to experience a reduction in donations from the rich once they will not be able to deduct them .

I know nothing about any of that, but she identifies as a catholic, thus to say there was no catholic representation is false. Perhaps there wasn't catholic representation you agreed with, but I would imagine most of the people on that list you don't agree with.

My point is that she probably doesn't represent the official position of the Church. None of the people on that list have anything of value to add, beside their personal opinions as American citizens, to a discussion on tax policy.

She's not a representative of the Catholic Church in any official capacity. She's actually fairly liberal and supported Obama. I'm not bashing her for her views. Simply pointing out that she's not traditional Catholic.
