Jim Webb: “We Already Own The Unemployed Blacks, Lets Focus On White, Working People”

“Washington, D.C. – In an interview with NPR Friday morning, the former Democratic senator from Virginia who could potentially run in the 2016 presidential election, Jim Webb, said that his party has not focused enough on white, working class voters in the past elections. In order to be successful in the future, that will need to change.

“So, if Webb had his way, the Democratic Party would return to its “Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Andrew Jackson roots” and put a greater focus on “white, working people.”

“Referencing the 2014 midterms, where Republicans took control of the Senate and added more power in the House, Webb said: “I think they could do better with white, working people and I think this last election showed that. The Democratic Party could do very well to return to its Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Andrew Jackson roots, where the focus of the party was making sure that all people who lack a voice in the corridors of power could have one through their elected representative.”

“Pressed on his statement by NPR’s Steve Inskeep, Webb said that he doesn’t think Democrats’ distancing from white, working people was a byproduct of President Barack Obama’s election. “This was happening before President Obama,” Webb stated.

However, when asked to comment on his statement during an exclusive interview with Newslo, Webb said that “it’s painfully obvious why all presidential candidates should focus on white people if they mean business in 2016.”

“You’d have to be a blind fool not to notice that the unemployed black Americans are eager to get rid of Obama. So, their votes are already in the bag; it’s just a question of which white candidate they prefer, a Democrat or a Republican. But either way, it’s the white voters everybody should be paying attention to,” Webb said.

He finished by saying: “heck, if I were black, I’d vote for me. This way, I think I’m going to go with Hillary. Either way is fine, as long as the vote goes to the Democrats.”
