WOLF: What happened to my Barack Obama? – Washington Times

“The federal minimum wage law effectively has removed the bottom rungs from the ladder of success. The black teenage unemployment rate of 40 percent is roughly double that of white teens.

In the 1940s and 1950s, when in some quarters a black man couldn’t sit at a lunch counter, let alone sit behind the desk in the Oval Office, black and white teen unemployment were both around 10 percent.

The difference? The essential absence of minimum-wage laws enabled teens to get their first jobs – and skills – without the government pricing them out of the job market.

Meanwhile, where is our president as America erupts into yet another unnecessary race fight?

Race hustler Al Sharpton screams that protests should “escalate” and the same New Black Panther Party to whom Mr. Obama gave a free pass for obvious voter intimidation against whites offer a $10,000 reward for Mr. Zimmerman – “dead or alive” – and still there’s deafening silence.

America deserves a president who will calm nerves and channel our passions rather than inflame them, a president who has the courage to challenge destructive forces in America even if they are politically popular, a president who celebrates that America produces families like his own.

America deserves the post-racial president Barack Obama promised he would be.
