A word used by Professor Cornel West incorrectly instead of using the correct tense, sucommed, when referencing how poorly of a job President Barack Obama has done. This was first pointed out on the Rush Limbaugh show on Wednesday, January 5, 2011.
Two years later, we have missed the opportunity, unfortunately. We didn't get the kind of leadership that we should. The president didn't have enough backbone. He became too milquetoast. He would not fight big business, would not fight big banks. He actually surcame too easily to big business and big banks -- and, of course, the obstructionism on the right was helping push him to the center; and now, of course, he's being pushed even more to the center, which means we...are...in...deep trouble.

Imaginary past-tense verb created by race hustler Cornel West to describe a brutha's failure to be sufficiently down with the struggle. Most likely, he meant to say "succumbed."
Although we hoped for change, President Obama surcame to those racist, sexist, bigoted homophobes who actually read the Constitution.

Past tense of succumb. Most often used in a political context. Generally reserved for the more enlightened and educated urbanite.
I thought I would cast aside the acceptance letter from Princeton, but I surcame to its call. Soon enough, I found myself triangulatin' to campus.
