Glenn Beck...

He's got African Americans on his show (that seems to be the point of the show today). Two who voted for Obama, one who didn't.

Whatever.

Anyway, he had a little video shot in Harlem and the fellow was talking about how much it's changed (for the better) since he was growing up there.

Hmm... what was unsaid (and surely unthought, because Beck is a truly ignorant fool), was the fact that a big part of what's happened in that particular neighborhood over the last 10 years or so, is thanks to... Bill Clinton.

People were giving Bill Clinton hell for his projects in New York after his Presidency, and of course, much of that renovation was a direct result of Bill Clinton's policies in support of renovation investment and removing the "red lines" that had been drawn around minority neighborhoods by lendors (Banks).

Of course, the same Bill that did this also sparked the Derivatives bubble that just crashed. Oopsies.
