Is There a Congressional White Caucus?

The Congressional Black Caucus was told not to criticize Obama on Syria......


As an increasing number of African-American lawmakers voice dissent over the Obama administration’s war plans in Syria, the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has asked members to “limit public comment” on the issue until they are briefed by senior administration officials.
A congressional aide to a CBC member called the request “eyebrow-raising,” in an interview withThe Cable, and said the request was designed to quiet dissent while shoring up support for President Obama’s Syria strategy.
The CBC, a crucial bloc of more than 40 votes the White House likely needs to authorize a military strike in Syria, is scheduled to be briefed by White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice on Monday. Until then, CBC chairwoman Marcia Fudge has asked colleagues to “limit public comment until [they] receive additional details,” Fudge spokeswoman Ayofemi Kirby told The Cable.

  1. I sometimes wonder if this is how lemmings end up where they do.

    "Hey, whatever happens, don't break ranks."

    "But, what if we're following someone into the ocean?"

    "We're smarter than that, we'd never follow anyone into.........."

  2. of course you can't criticize the president... don't you remember that all policy should be judged on the color of the author's skin and not the content of the argument?

  3. Is there a White Entertainment Television? Is there a White History Month? You know it's a crime to be Caucasian these days.
