Your President Speaks

From Holden:

He just can’t seem to understand why a little tokenism hasn’t helped him win more Black votes.

BUSH: But I was disappointed, frankly, in the vote I got in the African-American community. I was.

I’ve done my best to elevate people to positions of authority and responsibility — not just positions, but positions where they can actually make a difference in the lives of people.

I put people in my Cabinet. I put people in my sub-Cabinet. I’ve elevated people from all walks of life, because I believe there’s a responsibility for the president to reach out. And so it’s not a matter of tone, it’s also a matter of action.

And just got to keep working at it.
