Unpacking The CBC Meeting With Obama

Tomorrow ...

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) met with President Obama today to discuss what is, reportedly, their discontent with how his administration has handled the needs of the black community. An article published early today, written by Nia-Malika Henderson for Politico, quoted several CBC members as saying that Obama, in so many words, needed to step his game up. (Obama was once a member of the group when he was an Illinois Senator.)

But, if you caught any of the news conference given by CBC Chair Barbara Lee after the meeting, you'd think the meeting was just routine check-in, perhaps a love fest.

Tomorrow, we'll talk about the meeting with one of the Congressional Black Caucus members who was at the White House, as well as with Henderson.
