BLOG: Is the Obama no-show a slight?

By Assunta Ng

Some journalists felt slighted that President Obama didn’t come to speak at UNITY. Rep. Luis Gutierrez came on behalf of Obama. Only 50 folks came to a hall of 500 seats. Gutierrez did a decent job.

President Obama sent Vice President Joe Biden to speak at the Black Journalists Convention in New Orleans last June. I don’t blame Obama. UNITY 2012 lacked its 2008 luster and clout.  (end)
