Book: President Obama Hates the Congressional Black Caucus Just as Much as Tea Party | breakingbrown.com

Authors of the new bombshell book, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, claim that Obama does not have patience for black professionals who he refers to as “professional blacks.” A White House adviser to Obama says the president despises the CBC just as much as the Tea Party.“Obama had little patience for the ‘professional left,’ and vanishingly close to zero for what one of his senior African American aides, Michael Strautmanis, referred to as ‘professional blacks’ as opposed to black professionals,” the authors wrote on page 39 of their book. “Apart from Georgia congressman John Lewis and Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, Obama had nearly as much contempt for the CBC as he did for the Tea Party Caucus.”As far as Obama is concerned, he’s one of the only black politicians in Washington D.C. who is not a charlatan.“New York’s Charlie Rangel he derided as a hack; Jesse Jackson Sr. was effectively banned from the White House,” write the authors. “Obama remembered all too well a conversation with [Cornel] West in 2009, in which the professor used the precious time to complain about his seating at the inauguration.”The authors say that “professional blacks” and the “professional left”, those who put Obama in the White House,  annoy the thin skinned president.
