Potential fallout would be African American community from the president's public support of gay marriage.
Prominent African American pastor doctor Emmett burns.
Says his congregation in Baltimore will not support President Obama because.
Of this position and is reportedly told his parishioners.
Not to even vote in November.
Kenny Burrell -- Fox News contributor since you did jacksons a radio talk show host.
Andy Fox News contributors well that means here in new York institute is in.
Chicago -- good morning to both of you they've built I don't know which way this is gonna go to name what's your what's your feeling on this at the moment.
First of all President Obama is that this is bad politics for him he is on the wrong side of the issue.
He is going against the values of black Americans.
And when you're looking at the fact that he is awful splitting his base he's going for the gay community vs the black community where he has thrown them under the bus.
And he's also of splitting the unions vs the environmentalists when it comes to the Keystone Pipeline for example.
So I think used as campaign isn't her more right now.
They're very concerned about trying to hold on to black vote but I think Obama has taken the black votes up for granted just like other Democrats have done it.
Well abrasive TV and on the scene of somebody used that word desperation.
They see you internal polling numbers at the White House meeting in Chicago where they.
Operation set up there for reelection and and and the scare.
What it what do you make of this decision as it affects specifically African Americans.
I don't think that this campaign is scared I think that we have to dial this -- of it and understand.
That President Obama is the president of the United States he's not the pastor the United States he made a political announcement not pathetic -- announcements.
I think those who are going to stay home -- going to stay home anyway because.
The excitement of 2008 would have been very very hard to maintain in 2012.
That haven't been fed I think that.
African Americans overwhelmingly those who vote will be voting for President Obama because we understand that he is the CEO of the government.
A government that -- a constitution that he sworn to uphold.
A government that -- a constitution that protect all Americans.
Regular black brown and white street and day and this government separates church and state edited it enables us all to have -- liberty the pursuit of happiness and live.
By our faith in our faith but under the law which covers an.
Intense -- I think the White House to make a similar argument and I think the question comes back to whether or not he loses any support is questioned some of these key battleground areas.
You go back to 101000 that this is what we found between gore and bush 90% of African Americans what -- Al Gore.
-- with John Kerry over George Bush 20089.
Indy 5% supported then Senator Obama.
Over Senator McCain and evening when you look at that it is is there -- crack and that.
Now -- or not but yeah I really think this is all about the economy if you look at how unemployment in the black community is deplorable.
It's 13% its dull it's almost double among what it is for whites.
And among black teens it's 38 point 2% those numbers are outrages.
So Obama's policies are failing our country failing the black community is energy policy if the regressive policy.
High gasoline and utility prices are harming hard working Americans and those who are -- able to afford.
Higher energy prices though really his policies -- harming Americans.
Harming black that I think he -- throwing -- black community really under the bus.
In order to get money from the gay community and to get their votes -- -- do you hear the same thing in Chicago.
No I do -- -- the fact is the economy broke down we saw in 2007 and we saw on affluent break in September of 2008.
The fact is the black community is suffering.
And we don't blame at all on President Obama we can't because we have been failed by democratic presidents -- as a -- expected backlash because of that.
I think that you're going to see a dampening of enthusiasm -- -- studies that -- that the black and Hispanic communities are not voting -- with his with his -- -- intensity.
As needed that talent alone because I -- -- and now.
It -- but it was that you know what we have been suffering we -- stepping in 2008 that is -- all of America decided to do things you don't like you don't make Clinton vetoed it because well they're going to do that I'm not let me finish worse let me than normal ordinary it and correct it says more and more Americans -- -- -- into either.
While the fact is.
What everybody's suffering and we've been suffering for a long time we cannot just put this on President Obama this is something that belongs to Democrats.
And Republicans and I'm like -- didn't want to see.
-- I want to see a real discussion not just on same sex marriage.
But on the economy it was a specific -- -- Jamie Dimon and JP more.
-- this election at places like North Carolina was so tight 2000 -- you wonder if Democrats even have a chance this time around.
Di Nino give you the last word on all of this why -- they jump in -- -- yeah I think his campaign is in -- he's very concerned about black -- you have pastors who were coming out against what Obama has done so.
He has problems where he should be in believed.
Ahead of Romney right now he's not so he's really dividing his base right now ladies thank you both sent -- -- Jackson JR you inning rally here in New York.
