What would Obama have to do to lose the black vote?

This blog recently predicted that Obama will lose the upcoming election. He's lost the independents, and Wall Street. He no longer has the enthusiasm of young people. He has only lukewarm support from Hispanics. He doesn't even have the support of "Obama Girl" Amber Lee Ettinger any more.

The one bloc he is still assured of is the black vote. Blacks gave him 96% of their vote in 2008, and will undoubtedly give him a similar percentage this time around.

It's hard to imagine what Obama would have to do to lose them.

He could declare war on Britain on a whim, drop napalm on them, and still have the black vote.

He could declare all Treasury bonds null and void.

He could expound more about how he's been to 57 states, or about how they speak Austrian in Austria.

He could convert the Oval Office into a basketball court.

He could deliver all of his speeches in rap.

He could play golf seven days a week, and go on even more fancy vacations -- for say, twelve weeks a year.

And he would still have the black vote.

It seems the only way Obama could lose his core constituency would be to deliver the following speech:

"You know, I've been reading a lot of Steve Sailer recently, and I've come to the conclusion that the IQ difference between the races really is genetic in origin. It's unrealistic not to take that 15 point gap into account when formulating national policy. We have to realize that affirmative action and programs like No Child Left Behind are just plain wrongheaded. And given the difference in crime rates, not having racial profiling would simply be silly."

Addendum, next day. Just found out, last night SNL aired a skit which asks the exact same question as this post:

why do white people spend so much time trying to control, predict and monitor the activity of Black Americans?
most of you don't know what the hell you are talking about.
your white privilege, arrogance and utter tone-deafness leaves you clueless and writing screeds of tiresome drivel about the "blacks".

the homosexual agenda bullshit will cost him PLENTY with Black voters.

I don't give a dam whether this comment is printed---it is for you, anyway

Jacaranda --
I say he still gets 96% of the black vote. We'll see who's right come November, then we'll know who knows what the hell they're talking about -- and who's clueless.

Wow, jacaranda, it appears YOU are the arrogant one.

Let me tell you something. Everyone I know, gets up in the morning, gets themselves and their kids ready for school and work. Then they work all day, come home to fix dinner, do the laundry, pay bills, take their kids to whatever activities they have planned, help them with their homework, give them baths, make sure they're in bed. Then maybe the husband and wife have an hour to catch a show on tv, go to bed, and get up in the morning to do it all over again the next day. Then on the weekends they mow their yard, maybe make a few home/auto repairs, maybe does something fun, goes to church on Sunday and spends a little time with family and friends, and then Monday morning they start the whole process over again. Everybody I know are too busy just living their lives, so busy that most don't even have the time to get to know their neighbors, YET YOU think you are so important that we spend "so much time" thinking about YOU and trying to control you. Get real.
