Since Obama delivered so much to the black community during his eight years as president --- you know, things like racial harmony, soaring employment and superior standards of living --- it's only fitting he's owed. Big time. And it's time to pay the piper.
"I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good sendoff, go vote," Obama said recently to a predominately black audience of Capitol Hill lawmakers and guests.
If anyone should be insulted it's black voters.
"I'd consider it a personal insult --- politics is personal. This is the problem with our country. Everything is personal. No. That has nothing to do with you. I don't know if you know this, Barack, but you're not running. And even if you were running, just because I don't vote for you doesn't mean it's a personal insult," Glenn said.
If Obama had actually done anything other than hurt the black community, there would be no plea to make. Actions speak louder than words, Mr. President.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
GLENN: Now, let's have this conversation: Low black voter turnout would be a personal insult.
This is Barack Obama: I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy if this community lets down its guard and fails to activity itself this election. You want me to give -- you want to give me a good sendoff, go vote.
Wow. Let's -- let's talk about this here for a second.
JEFFY: Just calling out the action to vote, right?
GLENN: Yeah, uh-huh. So let's talk about this.
First of all, you want to give me a good sendoff -- why should people in the black community give him a good sendoff?
PAT: He's done nothing for them.
GLENN: I mean, I think the exact opposite.
PAT: Yeah, he's hurt --
STU: Well, he did heal all the racial wounds. That pretty much seems to be over, right? You know, I think we're all set.
GLENN: Why should anyone give him a good sendoff?
PAT: He seriously set back race relations in this country 40 years, easily. Fifty years.
GLENN: Easily. Easily.
PAT: We're back in the early '60s now, I think race-wise.
GLENN: And beyond that, just look at unemployment.
PAT: Unemployment is terrible.
GLENN: Unemployment numbers are, with the youth, in 50, 60 percent.
GLENN: If you look at the standard of living, it's gone down. If you look at the number of poor, it's gone up.
GLENN: What has he done? What has he done? Now, that's the first thing.
The second: I'd consider it a personal insult -- politics is personal. This is the problem with our country. Everything is personal. No. That has nothing to do with you. I don't know if you know this, Barack, but you're not running.
And even if you were running, just because I don't vote for you doesn't mean it's a personal insult.
PAT: And the third thing in that, he's expecting all blacks to vote en masse --
GLENN: In a bloc --
PAT: In a bloc, for a certain party.
PAT: Now, why would they?
PAT: Why would they?
GLENN: Why -- I want you to -- if anybody can defend this, I'd love to hear from you.
How can you possibly defend saying to a group of people, "You owe it to us. You have to vote, or it will be a personal insult to me. It will be bad." How could you possibly not vote for this candidate? Even the guy who has done it has done nothing for them. Even though the guy who is going to replace him, they don't necessarily like. They're not voting for her --
GLENN: -- they're not going out and voting because they don't believe in her.
STU: But do it anyway because it will be a personal insult to me if you don't.
GLENN: Right. And wrong. In fact, he goes on to say: Good sendoff, you got to vote for me -- I think he -- no, I guess that's it. It was somebody else that said something.
Others are taking it a step further and saying, "You know, this is -- this is detrimental to the country if you just don't follow in the bloc?"
STU: I mean, I would be insulted as a voter if they even asked that of me. If you -- you're asking me to vote for a candidate because you will be -- you will be insulted if I don't? You will be -- you think your legacy will be hurt if I don't do that? I mean, that's offensive to even ask. Right?
That's not how you're supposed to vote.
GLENN: Check your brain at the door.
PAT: Especially when his record is so terrible with the black community. They've gone backward, not just the race relations in this country have gone backwards, but so has -- so has the black community because economically they're worse off. Job-wise, they're worse off. The families are worse off. The murder rate, worse off. All of it, it's worse.
GLENN: Again, tell me -- tell me what she has done. What she had done. Not him. I can tell you what he's done.
PAT: For the black community?
GLENN: Tell me what she's done. Because it's about her.
PAT: I can't think of what she's done for anybody.
GLENN: Right. I could look at the party and say, "What has the party done for the black community ever? What has the party done to actually help the black community?"
It wasn't civil rights because that was -- those were the Republicans.
PAT: That was by the Republicans.
GLENN: So even with their own argument, the Republicans became bad after the civil rights movement. So it wasn't civil rights. So what has the Democratic Party done for the black man? What has it done? What has Barack Obama and what has Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton done for the black family?
STU: Well, if they had done something, his argument wouldn't be, you're going to hurt my feelings if you don't vote for Hillary.
STU: It would be, "Hey, look at all these incredible accomplishments. You should vote for those." Instead, it's, "Well, look -- I mean, he is saying those things as well. But you wouldn't need this personal plea if the argument were obvious. If it was, wow, we've changed the lives of African-Americans and made things so much better. That would be an easy argument to sell to people.
PAT: Yeah, it would.
STU: You wouldn't need to say, you'll hurt my feelings if you don't cast this vote.
PAT: If they had actually helped.
STU: Right. That's an easier path. Right?
STU: I mean, maybe that's not easier. That's probably harder, but it's a more direct path.
GLENN: So if the Democratic Party had done some things and they -- and they need to go and said, "Hey, we've done some things for you." And even though you really don't like Hillary Clinton because of her husband's record and everything else, you really don't like her, you wouldn't be offend if they said, "It's not going to hurt my personal feelings, but you need to vote for her because of the Democrats."
STU: Because the Democrats?
GLENN: Right. They're Democrats, and these guys are Republicans, and these guys are evil.
STU: It seems like a terrible way to vote, right? I mean, you don't do that. You vote -- oh, no, I was about to say something really bad. I was about to say, "You vote your conscience."
PAT: Oh, my.
JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.
STU: Oh, my gosh. I'm sorry to offend the audience. I didn't mean to go there.
PAT: You hatemonger.
STU: But I will say this, if African-American voters don't vote for Hillary Clinton just because she's a person that they don't like or agree with on things: Well, they own it. I will say that, they own it. Let's say it again: They own it, like it's a really important intellectual point. They own it.
PAT: Stu, will you hold them personally --
STU: I will hold them personally responsible. They own it. Wait. Let me say it 13 more times.
PAT: Now, if you tell me you're a mauve belt or something --
STU: No, I would never go that far.
PAT: -- even after that because then I will really be scared, and so will they.
GLENN: All right. All right.
STU: It's an interesting point though. Is it not the exact same argument? How can you criticize Obama and what he's saying today if you're doing the exact same thing to other voters?
PAT: I don't know. I don't know what you're saying. All I'm saying --
STU: I will be personally -- I will feel --
GLENN: All right. We got it. I got it.
STU: I will hold you personally -- "personally" is the word in both cases. This is getting even more and more interesting.
PAT: It is. It is.
STU: Well, I will say that they own it. Hey, guys, they own it.
GLENN: Okay. We got it. We got it.
STU: Hold on. Let me say it again. They own it. They own it. They own it.
GLENN: Got it. Thank you. Thank you.
